PriceSpy reveals new game releases are pulling in the clicks

With some of the biggest games of the year due to be released over the coming months, PriceSpy reveals both Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4) and FIFA 19 (PS4) have ranked within the website’s top five games for the month of August.


Despite neither of games being physically available to play, with Marvel’s Spider-Man due for general release on 7 September and FIFA 19 later this month (28 September), based on historical clicks on PriceSpy, both are already proving extremely popular.


PriceSpy – Top games in August (Popularity based on historical clicks from PriceSpy.)


  1. God of War (PS4)
  2. Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4)
  3. Detroit: Become Human (OS4)
  4. FIFA 19 (PS4)
  5. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)

Liisa Matinvesi-Bassett, New Zealand country manager for PriceSpy, says: “Avid Kiwi gamers appear to be waiting in eager anticipation for both of these two big releases.


“According to our historical data, even though both are not yet available to play, shoppers have still been busily searching out the best deals - a whole month ahead of launch.”


“Offering a high level of animation and being set in a present-day New York City, it’s no wonder Marvel’s Spider-Man is receiving such a lot of interest from both excited gamers and movie fans, as players will soon be able to web-swing from Manhattan’s skyscrapers and feel like a real superhero!”


As well as Marvel’s Spider-Man and FIFA 19, PriceSpy also predicts Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty Black Ops 4 to be very much in demand, as both already rank within the 10 top games for August, despite not being available for general release until mid to late October 2018.
