Valve reveals Steam's best selling titles and top new releases of 2017

Valve reveals Steam's best selling titles and top new releases of 2017

"As it's going to be an exclusive title on Xbox One for some time, we'd like to focus on completing the Xbox One PUBG for now", Kim explained.

The categories are separated into Top Sellers, Top New Releases, Top Selling VR Games, Top Early Access Graduates, and Most Played (Simultaneous Players).

CEO CH Kim has big plans for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Taking all the games from Steam's 2017 Best-Sellers list that qualify for MetaCritic scores, we set out to determine whether there was any significant link between review scores and sales performance on Steam.

The subsequent reshuffle appeared to affect the visitors more, with Palace growing more into the game the longer the half went on. In the 2003-04 season, Arsenal became the only club to get through an entire 38-game Premier League campaign without a defeat.

Obviously, Kim is referring to the pending PS4 launch of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which is now on the backburner because of the console's lack of a "Game Preview" program like the Xbox One. Meanwhile the top played games of 2017 compares interestingly to those that rake in the most revenue.

However, up to today, developers of the game are yet to confirm whether or not "PUBG" is ever going to be released on the PlayStation 4 system. Games like PUBG, Ghost Recon: Wildlands, Dota 2, and Rainbow Six Siege were among some of the Platinum titles previous year.

It's pretty interesting to see all of Steam's best laid out in front of you in these easy-to-digest chunks, and if you're looking to make some purchases with holiday cash, this best of list is a simple one to consult for what might be worth your time.

MetaCritic score isn't the only metric that varies greatly between Steam's best-sellers.

Valve has revealed Steam's best selling games and top new releases of 2017. Some of this comes down to the latter games lacking the full 12 months' worth of 2017 sales, but it also speaks to the continued support studios like Rockstar Games and Ubisoft have shown for their games well past their release.

On the same day that PUBG broke it, Dota 2 had just 704,938 concurrent players, which is still far more than most other games on Steam. If you buy two tickets, you're guaranteed to get PUBG and a random game.
