NOW CLOSED – Call of Duty is once again crowned top game

According to new data insights from New Zealand’s fully impartial price and product comparison site, PriceSpy, Kiwis have once again backed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (PS4), despite the game first launching back in October 2019.

Liisa Matinvesi-Bassett, New Zealand country manager for PriceSpy, says:  “It’s great to see Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (PS4) being crowned as the most popular game for February 2020.

“The last time this game claimed the top spot on our popularity rankings was back in November 2019, one month after it first released.”

The PriceSpy data also found two new game releases secured top game positions in the popularity rankings.

Liisa adds: “As well as clicking on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (PS4), Dreams for PlayStation 4 placed second overall and Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Switch, placed third.”

Liisa concludes:  “As with all new game releases, we strongly suggest gamers play the waiting game before they commit and make a purchase – as our historical pricing insights suggest many games will drop in price considerably three months after they are first released.

“Using a website or app like PriceSpy can help shoppers keep a close eye on the price of games every day to help save hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in the long run.  Gamers should also bookmark our gaming daily deals page, for all the latest offers. ”
