Another popular game that continues to grab the attention of gamers is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which claimed an impressive second position in the monthly PriceSpy rankings.
Liisa continues: “Despite The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom not being available to physically buy until next month, our popularity data suggests hype and excitement is still very much building, with the release regularly appearing as a top five game listings ahead of its official launch date.”
And it seems gamers haven’t forgotten about the Hogwarts Legacy.
After topping the polls as most-popular game for the last couple of months, PriceSpy’s April insights indicate that purchase interest is still high, with the game claiming an impressive third position.
Liisa concludes: “Our insights continue to show that people are always on the lookout for new and exciting games to play.
“With purse strings tightening however due to the ongoing cost of living crisis, for anyone that’s in the market to buy a brand new release but not launch prices, our research shows buying a game three months after its initial launch date can often offer a considerable saving.
