All I was saying is that I don't believe the hardware's sales metrics are calculated the same as software. I think It's highly unlikely they are selling enough $1k VR setups to compete with the current crop of best selling games on a regular basis.

Do we know conclusively that valve hardware/software not having to give up a 30% cut doesn't factor into the ranking algorithm? They rank by revenue so if true Valve is likely to always get a 30% boost which is inflating their products, Index included. That's not a fucking conspiracy.

Valve calculates based on gross revenue, so the 30% cut wouldn't be a factor -- it's all the money paid by end users. The 30% is an expense for the publisher/developer, and would be taken out when calculating the net.

About half the games on the top 10 list are in the $15-20 range, so one Index sold would count for 50-67 copies of those games. GTA5 sold 20M copies in 2020, so say 1.7M/month, setting aside console and non-Steam PC sales. At $14.80, that comes out to about $25M, or 25K Indexes. The Quest 2 is said to have sold 1M units in 4Q 2020 (333K/month), which looks like a plausible ratio - ~10:1 units over the Index sounds like the right order of magnitude to me. If the Quest 2 were on this chart, it would be looking at $100M/month if everyone bought the cheap version, easily blowing past GTA5, and even Valhelm at #1 (4M copies in a month, so $80M).
