Steam is down today on September 19th, it’s unclear why the store.steampowered.com URL is not working but we are seeing a message stating “An error occurred while processing your request”. This then leads to a long reference number being displayed with a white error page.
We’ve heard from many of our readers that like to use steam late in the USA, or even those getting up early in the UK. It looks like the Steam website and its services are down in both regions. You can see a number of tweets also confirming Steam is not working with a total outage below.

Steam is actually down. Did Wasteland 2 really do that? Can't be, right?

The tweets above also reveal some gamers trying to guess exactly why the Steam store is down right now. Thinking certain titles might have caused it. We have reached out to Steam support for a comment on the outage today.
You can see a screenshot of the error being displayed on steam right now above, and revealing the site is down totally today. Have you not been able to access steam and if so, what country and city is it down for you in? If you know how long it’s been down as well, then share a comment.
