The OLED update keeps the Steam Deck as the platform’s top seller

  • Steam has released its weekly top sellers for 21st – 28th November.
  • The Steam Deck is number one by revenue generated.
  • The top performing game is Lethal Company.

Steam has updated its weekly top sellers list to reflect the most recent period of 21st – 28th November and its own Steam Deck is in first place.

The list is organised by revenue generated and, for the Steam Deck, this new sales are likely being driven by the new OLED model of the handheld PC that was released earlier this month.

While many may have wanted a Steam Deck with more changes, or something more akin to an entirely new generation of the handheld, the OLED version is being generally well received by the community.

Here in South Africa the Steam Deck is still not sold directly by Valve, but is instead brought in independently by companies such as Incredible. Because of this indirect local sales strategy the OLED isn’t available so local gamers won’t be able to enjoy the updates to the Steam Deck just yet, if at all.

Meanwhile the other big name in the handheld PC market, the ROG Ally, is available locally and officially which is why we were able to provide you with this review. The most recent contender, the Lenovo Legion Go, is not available for purchase in South Africa at all right now, either officially or unofficially. We hope that changes soon as the Go seems even better for the local market as its ability to remove the controllers gives it a tablet form factor that gives us more to do during loadshedding.

Back to the Steam top seller list and the top performing game is the indie co-op horror title Lethal Company. We’re always happy to see smaller titles competing with giants of the gaming industry,

The top ten weekly sellers list can be found below. Looking at it you may notice that several free games such as Counter-Strike 2 and Apex Legends are included. Again this list is from revenue generated, so the free games are included in the list thanks to their in-game purchases compared to the upfront costs of buying the others products outright.

  1. Steam Deck
  2. Lethal Company
  3. Counter-Strike 2
  4. EA Sports FC 24
  5. Cyberpunk 2077
  6. Apex Legends
  7. Call of Duty
  8. Red Dead Redemption 2
  10. Baldur’s Gate 3

The list above may have also been affected by the most recent sale on the platform, the Autumn Sale, which took place between 21st and 28th November.
