The Covid-19 (corona virus) outbreak caused disruption to the activities of the world community. It was caused by a locking policy to prevent the spread of the virus. Policies make people busy looking for alternatives to fill the void of time by buying a game console.
Gaming console interest increased dramatically during the Covid-19 outbreak. Corona virus practically causes limited space for the world community.
This was coupled with a policy on the number of governments in several countries that enforced locking rules.
These rules make community activities only covered in the house alone.
This situation makes the world community, especially in Southeast Asia, turn to the world of games to fill the void of their time.
The situation has led to rising demand for gaming consoles, especially in several Southeast Asian countries. This was revealed from iPrice’s alert data, not long ago.
In countries such as the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam, the number of searches for gaming consoles has doubled at least twice.
In Indonesia, the increase in the search for gaming consoles in the marketplace increased by 204 percent from before the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile a drastic increase occurred in Vietnam. The increase occurred up to 432 percent over normal time.
Japanese gaming consoles such as Nintendo Switch and Sony Playstation are excellent in Southeast Asia.
Even so the consoles of Microsoft and Xbox, also have their own enthusiasts. The Xbox is one of the three most popular consoles in Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore.
