Valve’s online store falls down, goes boom

It may not be on par with the great Netflix snafu  of Christmas Eve 2012 but gamers are pretty ticked off that the Valve Software’s online store fell down during a Christmas sale, according to Geekwire, Reddit and other outlets. A traffic spike may have been an issue: Valve offered a free copy of Left 4 Dead 2 to anyone who downloaded and installed it before 10 a.m. PST December 26. As of 6:15 p.m. Christmas night the store appeared to be up again.

Update: Nintendo and Xbox Live sites are also experiencing issues, according to Gameinformer.
