PriceSpy has given us the downlow on the most popular games Kiwis searched for in January 2020, and things were a little bit different than usual. As one might think, PlayStation typically wins out the top 5, with the occasional Switch game slipping in. (Sorry Xbox, maybe this year will be different?)
But as you can see, Pokémon Sword beat PlayStation out completely to take the number one spot!
PriceSpy (a third party price comparison website that you should totally check out) tends to see a rise in searches when a game has a massive drop in price. The thing is, Pokémon Sword, which came out in November 2019, only got a $10 price drop at most! The cheapest January saw it was $89.
In comparison, Jedi: Fallen Order, which came out around the same time as Pokémon Sword, saw a 40% price drop in January! From $112.95 RRP to $69 at its cheapest! And STILL Pokémon Sword beat it! People just really want their Pokémon okay?
