Grand Theft Auto V and Steam hardware jump up charts thanks to Autumn sale

Grand Theft Auto V and Steam hardware jump up charts thanks to Autumn sale

PC games behemoth Playerunknown's Battlegrounds holds fast at the top of the Steam ranks even during the platform's Autumn Sale.

The title charts ahead of Grand Theft Auto V, which returns to the Top Ten thanks to a 50 per cent price reduction during this price cut period.

The Sale also helps some of Valve's hardware; the Steam Link streaming box, which is reduced to £3.99, and its accompanying Controller, take third and fourth places respectively thanks to some to-the-bone price cutting.

They chart on top of Rainbow Six Siege, which comes in fifth place thanks to a deal in the Steam Sale as well as the launch of brand new content. This creates a perfect storm for the game to com in the Top fie.

Sixth place goes to existential crisis action RPG Nier Automata, which has also been cut to half price, which Assassin's Creed Origins falls three place to No.8 this week.

The Game of the Year Edition of The Witcher 3 charts at ninth place. This was also heavily discounted on GOG.com, which is run by the same company as made the project, so sales of this game are likely higher across the board.

Below is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending November 26th:

1. Playerunknown's Battlegrounds, Bluehole
2. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
3. Steam Link, Valve
4. Steam Controller, Valve
5. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege, Ubisoft
6. Nier Automata, Square Enix
7. Missing
8. Assassin's Creed: Origins, Ubisoft
9. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition, CD Projekt RED
10. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve
