    Wasn’t this stat pretty skewed since it measures gross revenue and not units sold? So the Deck had a ~10x advantage over everything else?

      Measuring by units would be WAY more skewed. The top 10 would all be free items, or if you exclude those $0.01 items. Measuring gross revenue is much harder to game unless you count “actually selling $500 hardware a lot” as cheating somehow.

      I mean normalizing by dollar spent makes the list useful. It’s not a “most units sold” list. It’s a where is everyone spending money list.

      Absolutely true, this is from gross revenue instead of units purchased. Getting a few sales as a 40-dollar game can get you pretty high on the list.
