Nintendo Switch most searched console in New Zealand – PriceSpy
It seems the Nintendo Switch console is the most searched video game console on price aggregation site PriceSpy.
PriceSpy says Nintendo’s handheld hybrid is currently the most popular console on the site (1 January 2019
to date), followed by the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro (1TB) and Microsoft Xbox One S (1TB).
PriceSpy says Nintendo ranks overall as the most popular brand within the gaming shopping category
on PriceSpy, followed by Sony and Microsoft, and in 2018, the Switch also claimed the top spot as overall most popular console, followed by Sony PlayStation 4 Pro (1TB) and Sony PlayStation 4 Slim (500GB)
Liisa Matinvesi-Bassett, New Zealand country manager for PriceSpy, says its data suggests consumers appear to be making the switch (har, har), increasingly searching for Nintendo over the other big gaming players.
“Whilst consumer interest appears to be up the up, historical pricing insights for the
Nintendo Switch show the console’s actual price point has remained fairly static, varying by
just $79 between $469 to $538.
“In comparison to the second and third most popular consoles, the historical pricing insights
tell a different story. Both the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro (1TB) and Microsoft Xbox One S (1TB)
have varied massively in price points, suggesting retailers are offering bigger discounts on
these models to entice consumer in to make a purchase.”
