on The best deals,The tail is not tied
The prices of consoles are getting higher and higher, so it is common for people to look to the secondary market to guarantee a video game at home. As such, platforms like OLX are on the rise and offer second-hand items at attractive prices. The latest highlight is Microsoft’s mighty Xbox Series X, which has been highly sought after by the network.
In the month of June, this market saw a 31% increase, which shows that the passion for games has not diminished, but has had to take an alternative route than buying everything new.
With OLX’s used video game sales data, it’s possible to see recent interest in the Xbox Series X. The system showed an increase in demand by 38% compared to the previous month. Thus, it is included in the site’s top 10 list. Interestingly, the Nintendo Wii is the console that has reached consumers’ homes the most, guaranteeing a 63% increase in sales. The PlayStation line comes in third place.
In the latest list published by OLX, the most requested and sold system is the Xbox One, followed by the Xbox 360. The first Sony name to appear is the PS4, in third place. The popular Nintendo Switch only reached the fourth position.
The Xbox Series X, with a new price of up to R$ 5,000, is in high demand in the pre-owned version. This is because the savings can reach 26%, with an average price of R$ 3542. The same difference can be seen on the PlayStation 5, which costs around R$3,614. However, Sony’s phone sales only grew by 16%.
Of course, the models differ in price, but the platform claims that savings can reach 48%.
