CHARTS: Steam Deck and Lethal Company hold down two spots on Steam

Once again, Valve's Steam Deck was the biggest selling item on Steam.

This comes in the wake of the new OLED edition of the hardware, which launched earlier in November. That's on top of the original SKUs of the Steam Deck being reduced, too.

Co-op horror title Lethal Company was one again in second place due to continued attention from influencers, but it once more comes ahead of Counter-Strike 2.

PUBG: Battlegrounds rose up five places to No.4, perhaps in anticipation of the new Rondo map, while Call of Duty rose up two places to No.5. RPG romp Baldur's Gate 3 shot up to sixth place from last week's No.10, coming in ahead of Destiny 2, which returns to the Top Ten thanks to o the launch of the Season of the Wish round of content. This also introduces skins inspired by The Witcher's Geralt of Rivia, which no doubt speaks to Steam players.

EA Sports FC 24 drops four places to No.8 despite the title still having a 50 per cent price cu. Fellow EA title Apex Legends also drops from sixth to ninth week-on-week, while Dead by Daylight returns to the Steam charts at No.10.

Here is the Steam Top Ten for the week ending December 5th:

1. Steam Deck, Valve
2. Lethal Company, Zeekerrs
3. Counter-Strike 2, Valve
4. PUBG: Battlegrounds, Krafton
5. Call of Duty, Activision
6. Baldur's Gate 3, Larian Studios
7. Destiny 2, Bungie
8. EA Sports FC 24, EA
9. Apex Legends, EA
10. Dead by Daylight, Behaviour Interactive
