We've Added PC / DOS Games

We've added the most popular and most valuable PC/DOS games to PriceCharting.

You can add these to your collection and find the value for them too.

Unlike other consoles, we will not aim for a complete game list with PC games. There are too many junk/shovelware/worthless games to keep track of. If you see a popular or valuable game missing please add those, but don't add "Shovelware 100 in 1 Game Compilation" discs. If the game was available at Office Depot on the impulse rack by candy bars, it probably isn't worth adding :)

Also, we are only tracking games, not all Windows software so you won't see prices for Office 2009 or Lotus Notes.

Please give us any feedback on the list and anything else about PC game collecting you want to talk about.

Video Game Lot Automater Launched

PriceCharting has a new tool on the site, we're calling Lot Value Automater. Automater will automatically value a list of video games for you.

How it works:

  1. Choose the console for the games
  2. Type or paste a list of video games from Craigslist, Facebook marketplace, emails, etc)
  3. Submit.
  4. See the value of all the games listed and a list of games found

After our bots find the games, we highlight what we added so you can manually add any missing games.

You can share the result page with anyone else so they can see how the value was calculated. See the lot I valued.

Lot Automater compliments the Lot Value Calculator, which has you manually enter the games included. Lot Value Calculator works great for customers bringing games into your store or valuing games based on a photo. Lot Automater is fastest if you already have a list of the games.

The Lot Automater is free for all users with a ten item limit. Users who have PriceCharting Pro have unlimited access to the tool.

During the April 2020, all users with an account have PriceCharting Pro. So you can test the tool out with no limits for the entire month.

Please try it out and give us your feedback.

PEGI and EAN Support Added for PAL Games

We've added support on our site for PEGI ratings on all European (PAL) video games.

Users can add the PEGI rating (3, 7, 12, 16, or 18) to any game on the site. We will be gradually adding some PEGI data to the lists too.

At the same time we've added support for European UPC codes, referred to as EAN.

Users can add EAN numbers to any PAL product on the site. Once we have more EAN data, this will allow PAL users to search by EAN and quickly find games and use the built-in UPC scanner too.

See an example of the data on Fallout 4 PS4 page.

Lastly, we added support for Japanese CERO game ratings as well and Japanese UPC codes too.
