Since Valve started grazing the queue with booked Steam Decks a few weeks ago and more people have had the opportunity to actually pay and order their device, it has also sailed up on Steam’s top lists. One of them is the list which is updated at the end of each week, based on the game or product turnover. Here, Steam Deck has been in second place for several weeks, with the popular Elden Ring at the top.
However, Elden Ring’s time on the throne is over, at least for the time being, when Steam Deck on Sunday’s update stepped over the game and took first place. That Steam Deck quickly sold more than many games is not in itself very strange, as the units have a unit price that starts at the equivalent of just over SEK 4,000 and extends upwards to SEK 7,000.
In comparison, Elden Ring costs around SEK 600. Thus, significantly fewer Steam Deck units are required to reach the equivalent turnover as millions of copies of a game, even at a new price. Valve does not publish exact sales figures publicly and it is not clear how many units were actually sold.
The remaining titles in the list also do not have any recent figures based on sales, but Elden Ring is said to have sold over 12 million copies in the first three weeks, to both console and PC. It is therefore possible that this is a number of up to 100,000 for Steam Deck, based on how many copies of Elden Ring correspond to one unit.
