The most profitable game of the week among sale participants was the EA Sports FC 24 football simulator, which was offered at a 50% discount. The game rose from eighth to third place, one place ahead of Cyberpunk 2077. The role-playing game CD Projekt RED, which received the same discount (however, it should be borne in mind that the full price is not $70, but $60). , immediately added thirteen positions. Sales of Red Dead Redemption 2 also increased significantly – a western that was 67% or 70% cheaper depending on the edition, jumped from 71st to sixth place and updated its personal online record.

The sales leader in the overall ranking remains the Steam Deck for the second time in a row, which landed back in first place after 35 weeks thanks to the release of the OLED version and a price reduction for the basic model. The cooperative horror film Lethal Company rose to second place and reached a new peak of popularity on November 27 (184 015 concurrent users).

Thanks to the sale, the arcade racing game Forza Horizon 5 (+62 places), the action role-playing game Hogwarts Legacy and the shooter Battlefield V (not included in the table) returned to the top 10.
