In the 2021 New Product Festival, the number of players’ wishlists has reached 22 times that of the previous ones. In addition to consumption information, the report also provides insight into game playtime. Valve said people will spend nearly 38 billion hours of gaming on Steam in 2021, a 21% increase compared to 2020.

In addition to this, the review also covers the frequency of use of the “Remote Play” feature and the recently introduced “Remote Play Together” feature. This feature allows games that support local multiplayer to be played with other people online, even without a Steam account. Valve noted that shared game sessions accounted for 34% of all Remote Play sessions after the launch of Remote Play.
