V Society publishes its own platform, Steam Hardware and Software, every month, and according to Steam’s latest report in December, Chinese Simplified’s share of the Chinese Simplified surpassed English for the first time, reaching a high of 37.87 percent, making it Steam’s largest gaming language market.
In the past, English has always been the most commonly used language by Steam players, the proportion of 30 to 40% fluctuated between 30 and 40%, but in December last year, the proportion of Chinese Simplified suddenly burst 14.43 percent, according tomedia PC Gamer reported, this may be the first time the English language system accounted for the first time by other languages, But only if the survey data is correct.
When the Steam data survey became public in May 2018, it was revealed that players had abandoned the new version of Win10 and switched to the old version of Win7, which was explained by Steam officials and found to be related to the redness caused by Jedi Survival and the way computers were managed by Chinese Internet cafes.
In other words, Steam has corrected the report because the way computers are managed by Internet cafes in China causes a computer to send back resupted client hardware and software data. While it is not clear whether the December 2019 report is correct, according to daniel Ahmad, an overseas analyst, last year, China has more than 30 million Steam users.
Steam has become a “grey area” for censorship due to the rigours of game censorship at home, with domestic players flocking to Steam to play uncensored games, while Dota 2 and Jedi Survival are among the hot tests that have contributed to the growth of Steam’s Chinese players.
According tomedia reports, “The Jedi Survive” sold more than 50 million units worldwide in June 2018, and more than 50 percent of the players who have been online in the last two weeks are from China.
