That's correct, Ark and Fifa 21 were week sales, one as part of EA strategy and the other as new expansion announcement soon (teaser dropped this week)
One interesting point about Sea of Thieves, it had its price lowered in some regions around October so in the last sale it may have reached an attractive price point.Sixth is for Sea of Thieves, nothing really to comment here, it had a good sale (very rare, I must say) but that's it, the game is very popular and surprisingly people jumped in very quickly (much more quick than others like GTA V or RDR2, if we take into consideration other sales)
Interesting, didn't know that fact and now that I checked it's true, there has been an adjustment to the base price in some areas, amazing retroactive effect, thanks for the data point, much appreciatedOne interesting point about Sea of Thieves, it had its price lowered in some regions around October so in the last sale it may have reached an attractive price point.
That is a weird one. Never discounted and suddenly here. I wonder if there is something anime-related.Wallpaper Engine got a sale and it entered, first time I see this happening, might be some more reasons but I don't know anything else in this case in particular.
Heck, must have mixed with another product to say the sale thing, I even had it noted :SThat is a weird one. Never discounted and suddenly here. I wonder if there is something anime-related.

Not late, we were discussing this yesterday night, we both made similar threads when we started talking about this trend, it was quite interesting.A bit late to the party but I saw this ZhugeEX thread explaning it:
I thought it would have faded away after Halloween. Goes to show my prediction skills aren't great.I think it's very impressive how Phasmophobia manages to maintain a high position even during the sale.
I actually did some more looking at this, and the number given appears to be the people following the CDPR bilibili account. Here is the link to their profile page which has a follower count that is virtually the same as the one on the promotion page.About Cyberpunk 2077 it seems to have already sold 1.3 millions copies on pre-orders in Steam and GOG.
Thanks for the correction!I actually did some more looking at this, and the number given appears to be the people following the CDPR bilibili account. Here is the link to their profile page which has a follower count that is virtually the same as the one on the promotion page.
That's not to say there aren't a ton of Cyberpunk preorders, but I don't think the 1.3 million in China alone is legit.
usually 20th of each month - the previous month report (in december, November gets published)When does Valve usually post the end of year sales results? Last week of December?
I think this is worth it's own thread so I think I will do one ASAP when I have some free time, yet let me thank you for posting it and for being part of the thread week after week
In the end of 2020 Garry did the yearly blog post talking how their games performed, the part about Rust:Impressive performance for Rust thanks to this OTV server full of streamers, game not only pumped up in terms of popularity but also reached a new all-time CCU peak 244,7k players and made +1M USD in terms of revenue based on Garry's data.
Probably a big one due to the lower number of games available in that launcher, it will be interesting to see if we will be able to track the CCU peaks and in general the current available data for all the apps in the WW steam.I wonder what impact the official Chinese Steam "fork" will have on game launches like this.
It all depends if Steam International is blocked when Steam China launches. Valve and Perfect World have been annoyingly silent on the topic. Best case scenario is that Chinese customers aren't blocked without a VPN, but I wouldn't put money on it.I wonder what impact the official Chinese Steam "fork" will have on game launches like this.
FWIW, I remember reading that Chinese user numbers for CSGO and Dota 2 are included in the totals for those games, so whatever the user numbers for Steam China are should be baked into the total numbers. At the same time, I wouldn't be surprised if the total Steam CCU takes a decent hit if Steam International is blocked since a lot of Chinese users probably won't bother using a VPN and won't be interested in the smaller library.Probably a big one due to the lower number of games available in that launcher, it will be interesting to see if we will be able to track the CCU peaks and in general the current available data for all the apps in the WW steam.
In my personal opinion I think there will be a big impact for those releases.
When I picked up my index headset it said ships in 4-8 weeks.... I got it in 3 days. Can confirm!Late update time, last week top 10 but as I had a busy week, I couldn't publish it before, sorry.
Nothing really interesting this week aside of a particular case, let's see what happened last week, shall we? .
Top 1-3 stays the same as previous week, Rust retains big part of the popularity thanks to the OTV server full of influencers, Index stays in a really good position thanks to the steady supply (Zurick can confirm this if he wants right now) and Cyberpunk while declining stayed strong with over 100k players each day (that number is lower today but we will see later)
Heroes of the 3 Kingdoms 8 debuts at 4th position, quite impressive for a china exclusive game, not only had a great debut but also a really interesting CCU peak with over 25k players and a great review reception, we will see if it stays up of it went out of the top quickly.
CSGO goes from 8th to 5th, demand for the new operations stays strong and probably has to do with the new league that is going to be happening this year (if possible) Broken Fang remains in a good position.
Phasmophobia goes from 5th to 6th, while declining a bit the popularity of this title is something stunning, it is possibly the one from the big 3 that less impact had in terms of peaks and social media content, however it is the one that stayed the longest and the steadiest within the charts, it has a very dedicated community and while not so numerous as the other two in their biggest moment, phasmophobia remains while others failed already.
Raft goes from 6th to 7th, since winter sale, this game went up in popularity however it wasn't due to Twitch or any other platform, it's just people who likes the game and as it getst updates and seems like survival fans likes this title.
RDR2 goes from 10th to 8th, it's an amazing game and it's on sale right now, I mean, it's obvious that it will stay up each time the game goes on sale.
GTA V stays the same, same as RDR2 but instead of sale moment, it's due to low price tag and because it's GTA V
SoT goes from 4th to 10th, the biggest drop of this chart but surprisingly stayed relevant way longer than expected after the winter sale, great game, great community and in general an amazing example of how a game went from almost irrelevant to be shining in popularity within a certain community.
I want to say something, last week was my 30th week doing this
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING THERE WEEK AFTER WEEK READING THIS, ABSOLUTELY LOVE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU.
Interesting week! I think we still might see Rust in top 10 in February.Wait is over, here it comes this week's top 10
Must say this week is a very interesting one full of nice surprises so let's check it out, shall we?
Rust stays 1st, three weeks in a row, OTV server popularity isn't declining yet, we might have Rust for some time hehe, it's enjoying a very interesting second life thanks to all the influencers playing the title right now, don't think this one will change too much next week.
Everspace 2 (EA) debuts 2nd, what a pleasant surprise, reception for this one has been really great so far, 3k CCU peak might not be too high but game features a 93% of 1000 reviews positive which is AMAZING, keep in mind that the game released in Early Access so a lot of people will wait for the 1.0 as we will see later in this chart.
VR goes from 2nd to 3rd, nothing new to comment here, as last week, people keeps ordering the headset and as the price tag is so big it always stays in the upper zones of the chart.
Dyson Sphere Project debuts at 4th, another great surprise, it's an strategy game in the same sense of Satisfactory or factorio but featuring a different setup, game was made by a very small team of Chinese independent devs (5 devs IIRC) and player's reception has been a good one, eonden liked it, as you can see, over 27k ccu peak and 95% of 2600 reviews positive, woah.
C2077 goes from 3rd to 5th, kind of impressive that an SP game has stayed for so long in here without sales, after all the debacle, game is declining in positions and in the number of daily players (under 30k daily now), however it is normal and the natural progression of any SP game, game is still being heavily patched.
RDR2 goes from 8th to 6th, as I commented earlier today with last week's chart, game is still on sale and it's going up, it's a very popular game and as so it's doing great numbers.
Phasmophobia goes from 6th to 7th, game keeps declining but I will say the same as earlier today, is still the most consistent one of the three.
CSGO goes from 5th to 8th, operation did a 360º loop hehe, it went back to 8th position as two weeks ago.
Skul debuts at 9th, well, 1.0 debuts as the game released in February 2020, however this has been a warmer reception for the title, game has been quite popular in the streaming scene and that resulted on a very interesting release, over 18k ccu peak and over 92% of recent reviews are positive, really cool, don't you think?
Raft goes from 7th to 10th, Raft keeps declining, perhaps this will be the last week we will see it in top 10, who knows, in any case the popularity has lasted longer than I would have expected at first.
And that was it for this week, thanks a lot for reading this, I think it has been a very varied and interesting week in general, hope you think the same and hopefully we will see more of this games next week.
