Search Suggestions are Live

PriceCharting now has search suggestions with typo correction.

On any page with a search box, you start typing a search and we suggest the five most popular games that match your search. Clicking the suggestions can save you some typing.

We compensate for typos too. For example, "Mrio" will still show suggestions for "Mario" games.

Click one of the suggestions to search with that, or continue typing your search like normal.

Try it out and give us your feedback in the comments below.

Please give us your feedback on new features

We'd love to get our community's feedback on some new features we are considering.

We are considering adding a marketplace to PriceCharting where people/businesses can buy or sell their games. Like eBay and Amazon, but built specifically for games and built right into PriceCharting.

Please take our survey and let us know your thoughts.

Thank you

Thank you for your feedback and an Update

Thank you to the hundreds of people who answered our price survey. You left fantastic feedback and helped us improve our model.

Here are two changes we made just yesterday to improve it:

1) Stop recording prices for "best offer accepted" listings
There used to be a work around on eBay that let us see the accepted offer price. Sometime recently eBay closed this backdoor solution. You notified us of this change and we fixed it on our end.

Best offers were always a small portion of overall sales volume but they biased the prices higher than the actual price.

2) Use 6 month average of sales on more games
There was lots of agreement on what the price should be and the methods people used to come up with their price.

More than 60% of people averaged the most recent sales.

That is the method we already use for the vast majority of games on the PriceCharting, but some rare games or uncommon conditions (loose, cib, new) used the most recent sale. This will now be a much smaller portion.

Thank you again for your feedback and helping to improve PriceCharting.
