Video Game Value UPC Scanner

We've added a UPC Scanner to PriceCharting using your mobile phone camera.

You can scan any UPC barcode for a video game and quickly find the value.

Here's how it works:

Click UPC Button Near Search Box

Scan a Barcode

You may be asked to grant permissions for PriceCharting to use your camera. Choose 'yes'. This is required so we can see what game you are scanning with your phone.

See Game Value

The tool is only available on mobile devices because they have built in cameras. The tool is still in testing phase, so please give us your feedback. How accurate is it for you? How quick is it? Etc.

Some Tips for Using UPC Scanner

  • Works best with good lighting.
  • You get best results with a high quality camera that takes good close up shots.
