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|
|Raw Data||2017 [prev. EA]||$4,283,320.00||107,083|
|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|
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||
|Dead Effect 2 VR||2017 [prev. EA]||$541,500.00||21,660|
|The Talos Priciple VR||2017||$827,480.00||20,687|
|Vanishing Realms||2016 [EA]||$1,973,120.00||98,656|
|I Expect You to Die||2017||$559,750.00||22,390|
|Batman Arkham VR||2017||$681,440.00||34,072|
|QuiVr (2016)||2016 [EA]||$486,740.00||24,337|
|Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope||2017||$1,508,920.00||37,723|
|Sairento VR||2016 [EA]||$956,460.00||31,882|
|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.
