Competition is now closed

NOW CLOSED – According to the latest popularity data insights from fully impartial price and product comparison site, PriceSpy, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (PS4) has claimed the top spot as overall most popular game for the entire month of August 2019, despite launching last October.

Historical pricing insights also reveal this surge in interest for the games coincides with a considerable drop in price, as Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (PS4) once retailed at $94 NZD but is now available to purchase from just $39 NZD – a saving of 59 per cent.

Interestingly, despite the Rugby World Cup kicking off within days, Kiwis also appear to have a soft spot for football, with FIFA 20 placing as second most popular game for August 2019, one month ahead of its official launch date.
