      The really impressive thing about Valve is the amount of revenue they make with a relatively small head count. They have about 1/10 the number of employees as EA.

        What was the last game they made prior to Half-Life Alyx? Portal 2?

          Cs:go, dota 2, artifact and underlords i think.

          I guess this is estimated revenue through game sales, otherwise i’d think activision-blizzard(candy crush) and valve(steam cut, dota and cs micro transactions, steam market) would be higher.

          And of course MS has an interest to undervalue some companies compared to sony and nintendo

      Seems about right. They don’t have a complete monopoly and the industry seems to be making most of their money off micro-transactions these days instead of sales, something valve takes no cut of outside there own games. Meanwhile apple and google do have monopolies and take a cut of micro-transactions which accounts for there significantly larger revenue.

      It might be. It’s hard to know since Valve isn’t a public company, so it’s all estimations and guesses.

      That number is shockingly low due to how prevent they are. They don’t really have any competition on the PC market aside from the Epic Games store which is only used for exclusives by most.
