NOW CLOSED – If PriceSpy’s latest data insights are anything to go by, Kiwi gamers appear to be steering more towards driving games, with CTR Crash Team Racing – Nitro Fueled Edition (PS4) and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch) proving to be amongst the most popular games for the month of July, 2019.
Accelerating to poll-position for a second month running is CTR Crash Team Racing – Nitro Fueled Edition (PS4), followed by Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4), which despite receiving an overall price increase of $17 since last month, the game has consistently been well-placed since first launching in September last year. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch), Super Mario Maker 2 (Switch) and Days Gone (PS4) placed as third, fourth and fifth most popular games.
Liisa Matinvesi-Bassett, New Zealand country manager for PriceSpy, says: “The most popular games for July certainly appear to be driven by the release of two racing games, CTR Crash Team Racing – Nitro Fueled Edition (PS4) and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch).
“Interestingly, all five of the most popular games were also priced under the $100 mark, which goes to show just how important price is to consumers in driving overall interest in a game.”
