Steam is currently the largest digital distribution platform for PC gamers with almost 75% of the market space. It has over 130 million registered accounts (with over 13 million concurrent users). The success of the Steam platform has led to the development of Steam Machine micro-console, as well as SteamOS. Steam’s user-friendly design and frequent sales, only increase its popularity among PC gamersMusic video games are part of a very unique genre. They typically challenge players to follow certain sequences of movement while dictating specific tempo and rhythm. Some music games require the player to input said rhythm by stepping on a dance pad, or by using a device based on a specific musical instrument. Music games have changed the interaction between players and their consoles by making the entire gaming experience more active. It’s worth noting that this particular video game genre has good influence on the music industry. It is evidenced by a significant raise of legal downloads of songs.
Recently, top music games such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Sing Star have achieved huge popularity among casual gamers. They are played almost exclusively on consoles as the PC is not always suited for this type of “active gaming”.
