If I'm not wrong, this character is based on the revenue generated instead of units sold, right. If that so then steam deck starts at $399 which is equivalent to almost seven $60 games.

Kinda feel this chart is produced to make Valve and steam's hardware look good. You don't see the big console devs including their controllers in software numbers. Has this always been the case?

Fairly certain that is how Valve has always done this. The chart is also ordered by revenue and the Steam Deck and Valve Index VR are far more expensive than a standard game.
