Russian video games consumers trigger demand for retro consoles

Moscow, Jun 3 (Prensa Latina) Russian video games consumers triggered the demand for retro Tetris consoles, a game that is over 30 years old, representatives of commercial platforms noted on Friday.

According to Yandex Market, “Tetris sales doubled in April compared to the previous month,” market department executives told the Russian media Izvestia.

Likewise, the Ozon Company pointed out that the interest in retro entertainment may be related to its affordable price, “many adult users see it not only for themselves, but also for their children.”

In turn, the Wildberries Company commented that in the purchase reviews it is elicited that these devices are popular because people love nostalgia as they remember a carefree childhood.

“The most in-demand model is the classic Brick Game console in black with bright yellow buttons,” the company added.

Meanwhile, Avito’s office reported that, compared to 2022, Tetris sales increased by 36 percent.

Network experts assumed that the Tetris boom is also on account of the Tetris movie, released on March 15 2023, which tells the story of Soviet programmer Alexei Pakhitnov, author and developer of the game.
