At the beginning of the New Year Valve has launched a glance again at 2017’s greatest promoting VR titles on Steam.

Just in time for the top of the Steam Winter Sale (concluding January 4th @ 10AM PT), Valve has revealed a collection of ‘The Best of 2017‘ charts, displaying which titles on Steam have fared the very best throughout a number of metrics. Among the charts is a listing of the highest 100 greatest promoting VR video games on Steam in 2017, as measured by gross income.

The chart is damaged into tiers starting from Bronze to Platinum. Refreshing the web page shuffles the titles in every tier, that means we are able to’t inform immediately how particular person video games in every tier stack up by way of income, we solely know that video games in the next tier had increased income than video games in a decrease tier.

Here’s a have a look at the Gold and Platinum tiers; in an effort to roughly estimate the vary of revenues inside every tier we’ve estimated complete gross income (not simply 2017) based mostly on knowledge from SteamSpy (assuming MSRP for all gross sales), and sorted every tier by that figure:


Game Release Estimated Total Gross Owners
Fallout 4 VR 2017 $4,731,120.00 78,852
Arizona Sunshine 2016 $4,721,400.00 118,035
Raw Data 2017 [prev. EA] $4,283,320.00 107,083
Tilt Brush 2016 $4,025,360.00 201,268
Job Simulator 2016 $3,416,940.00 170847
Audioshield 2016 $2,803,640.00 140,182
SUPERHOT VR 2017 $2,561,475.00 102,459
Onward 2016 [EA] $2,409,375.00 96,375
Space Pirate Trainer 2017 [prev. EA] $2,372,865.00 158,191
Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality 2017 $1,839,900.00 61,330
Hot Dogs, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades 2016 [EA] $1,557,580.00 77,879
Gorn 2017 [EA] $1,392,080.00 69,604

Looking on the chart in opposition to our estimated income knowledge, Fallout 4 VR, regardless of being launched lower than a month in the past, discovered itself among the many high grossing VR titles of 2017 because of a comparatively excessive $60 worth level and a launch surrounded by a number of buzz.

Interestingly, and maybe worryingly for VR content material growth, half of 2017’s Platinum sellers have been launched in 2016 (or much more than half if we counted Raw Data and Space Pirate Trainer as being launched in 2016 given their Early Access debut that 12 months). This would suggest that 2017 hasn’t seen very many VR hits launched on Steam in comparison with 2016, which itself may imply a number of various things, however with out extra knowledge, speculating additional isn’t notably helpful.


Game Release Estimated Total Gross



Virtual Desktop 2016 $2,467,785.00 164,519
Dead Effect 2 VR 2017 [prev. EA] $541,500.00 21,660

QuiVr (2016) 2016 [EA] $486,740.00 24,337
Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope 2017 $1,508,920.00 37,723

Pavlov 2017 [EA] $593,830.00 59,383
Paranomal Activity the Lost Soul 2017 $798,240.00 19,956

In the Gold tier, a smaller portion (25%) of 2017’s high grossing video games have been launched in 2016, suggesting that a variety of VR titles launched in 2017 are working their manner up the charts, however not at notably accelerated fee in comparison with 2016.
