During the pandemic, the demand for game consoles in Russia quadrupled

Video games have long outgrown the status of a hobby for sedentary young people and have become a pretty decent way to brighten up their leisure time. It became especially relevant during the pandemic, as evidenced by the sales figures for consoles in Russia.

Playstation 4

According to the regional branch of AliExpress, during the period of self-isolation, users bought products from the “Gaming” category four times more actively than before the restrictions were introduced. The most popular were the PlayStation 4 Pro 1 TB bundled with God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn, the PS4 Slim set with GoW, The Last of Us and Days Gone, and the Xbox One S 1 TB.

Representatives of the company noted a 40% increase in sales of relevant accessories – the most popular in this section was the DualShock 4 gamepad. Experts assume that demand will not subside until the end of the year, when the next generation systems enter the market. Sony and Microsoft have already shown the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, but pre-orders are not open yet.
