Steam Issues

I'm just trying to make a small purchase on Steam and the system is very busy.
Has something been released very recently which is causing this high demand?

Re: Steam Issues

I've noticed that Steam has been having a fair few slowdowns over the last few weeks, seems to happen more when there are big e-sports matches on in DOTA, CS:GO, League of Legends etc.
