Steam Sales Chart: Persona 5's Triumph amid Gotham Knights' Weak Start

We are studying the Steam sales chart for the 42nd week of the year.

Top of the highest-grossing products on Steam for the period from October 17 to October 23#1

Traditionally, the first line on the cash register collected during the week is behind the Steam Deck. Valve‘s portable gaming computer consistently earns more than any game.

At the same time, the great excitement around the docking station to the device did not last long. The Steam Deck console disappeared from the top after two weeks of being in the top in second place. She lost the second position in the chart to pre-orders of
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II.

Activision Blizzard allows you to buy a game that is not yet available for download from the end of September. And all this time, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is in the top 10 in sales on Steam. And, as a rule, taking up a couple of lines at once.

So it happened at the end of last week. The game lost two positions at once. One edition at the box office was in the second position, and the other in the fourth. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, recall, is released on October 28.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II #3

EA SPORTS FIFA 23 football simulator has disappeared from the top sales (right from the third place). Now, instead of it, there is an expanded edition of Persona 5 published last Friday with the subtitle Royal.

JRPG is rarely seen in the top ten Steam, especially at such a high position. The game has off-scale 93% positive ratings on the platform and is not bad for a single online game of 34 thousand players.

Last Friday, a Biotech supplement was released to the RimWorld strategy, in which the player controls a space colony. In it, the colonists had the opportunity to raise children, create genetically modified xeno-humans and mechanoids.

It is difficult to say how the release affected the sales of the game itself. RimWorld is not in the top ten. However, the owners of the original game were enough to bring the addition to the fifth position in sales.

The chart did not remain completely without games about football. Instead of EA SPORTS FIFA 23, Football Manager 2023 from SEGA appeared in it last week. However, the release of the game has not yet taken place. It will be released only on November 8th.

The PC release of UNCHARTED: Legacy of Thieves Collection started only from the seventh line. The prospect of getting acquainted with the series in the final part of the saga, apparently, did not seem promising to the players (especially against the background of the opportunity to buy a couple of pre-orders of the new Call of Duty).

Gotham Knights sales also started rather weakly on Steam. The game was coldly received by both critics (65% on Metacritic) and players (the same 65% positive reviews on Steam). They scold both the game design and the technical condition. Most likely, in a week it will no longer be on the chart.

Gotham Knights#9

Against the background of a 50% discount, Red Dead Redemption 2 has returned to the Steam chart. The project practices this with enviable regularity. In September, the discount allowed him to get into the top 3 sales on the site.
