It seems the Steampowered website and the Steam client is down. Users are getting a “Could not connect to the Steam Network” error.
Earlier it was revealed that a hacker group called Phantom Squad were going to take out PSN and Xbox Live on Christmas so it could be their doing. Steam rarely goes down so this is very surprising.
The website is down as well and it can’t be that too many people are using it due to the sales since it’s been a few days since the sale went live. We will keep you updated once we get more information on this.
PSN is acting a bit weird as well but there doesn’t seem to be any major problems there. Here’s the error some Steam users are getting.
Let us know if you can login to Steam in the comments section below.
