CHARTS: Valve Index VR holds Steam top spot

Valve's Index VR headset has once again take the No.1 spot on Steam.

The hardware held the top spot for another week having come back into stock after a period of being out of stock due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Second place goes to Microsoft and Rare's pirate romp Sea of Thieves, which rose from last week's No.3. That follows the title being exclusive to Microsoft's Windows 10 store on PC after its March 2018 launch. It was the best-selling title on Steam for its first two weeks on Valve's platform. Fellow Microsoft title Halo: The Master Chief Collection took eighth place due to 20 per cent price cut from the Steam Summer Sale.

Doom Eternal from Id and Bethesda takes the No.3 spot due to the shooter being 50 per cent off, while EA and Respawn's Titanfall 2 was the fourth best-selling title of the week following that title's debut on Steam. It's also 67 per cent off at the moment, which no doubt has helped with its sales.

Likewise, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice makes a return to the Top Ten in fifth place due to a 35 per cent price cut, while Quantic Dream's Detroit: Become Human charted at No.6 following its debut on Steam. It has a ten per cent launch discount, too.

Satisfactory also recently made its debut on Valve's platform following a period of exclusivity on the Epic Games Store. Perpetual bestseller, Bethesda's Skyrim, once again makes an appearance in the Steam Top Ten at No.9 in the form of its Special Edition thanks to a 60 per cent price cut.

Finally, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption 2 holds up the bottom of the Steam Top Ten due to a 20 per cent price cut.
