You Can Contribute to PriceCharting

Many of our users help us fix data or cover art mistakes on the site. They used to email us and wait for us to make the fix. Now users can edit data themselves.

You can apply to be Contributors and get permissions to improve PriceCharting for everyone.

As a contributor you can:

Edit Most Game Data (like UPC, publisher, release date, etc)

Edit/Add Cover Art

Add Extra Images of Games (cartridge, disc, circuit board, artbook, etc)

Extra Game Images

For this new feature we added a section for additional photos of games. Instead of just showing cover art, you can see the cartridge/disc, circuit boards, limited edition pack-ins, etc. If you have any of this data and we are missing it, please add it yourself. We're working to add lots of the images on our end too.

If additional images are available, a "+ X more photos" message appears next to the cover art. Clicking that takes you directly to the other images.

See these images in action

For data security reasons, we're only accepting long time users who visit the site frequently. We don't want new users trolling the site and breaking stuff :)

Admin are notified of every change and can revert them easily if needed and revoke contribution permissions if needed.

How to Find Game Lists & Prices by Publisher

Do you have a favorite video game publisher? Nintendo, Rockstar, Atlus, Konami, etc.

You can search PriceCharting by Publisher to find all their games and their prices.

Want to collect of every Capcom game? Add the Capcom games to your collection with one click and see which Capcom games are missing from your collection in a quick glance.

We're working to add the same feature for game developers but we need to add more data points to our database before we are ready to launch it. If you want to help, contact us and we an give you access to edit the database.

Please give us your feedback on this new feature.

Multi Disc Game List

We also added a list of every multi-disc game for every console.

Use this as a quick tool to make sure games you find are complete with all the discs.

The "Item Details" section on every disc game page lists the number of discs included.

CoD: Modern Warfare 2 Price Skyrockets After Backward Compatibility

On August 28th, 2018 Microsoft added backward compatibility for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox One.

The number of units sold on eBay increased 11,500% that day to 254 complete in box units sold.

As the supply on eBay dropped the price started increasing. Prices went from an average of $4 before the announcement to $12.77 today.

Unit sales have since cooled down, but they are still roughly 8x higher per day then before the announcement.

Microsoft said Modern Warfare 2 was their top backward compatibility request. The sales numbers show just how popular it was. Maybe Activision should re-release the game at retail, but I'm sure they don't want nine year old game canabalizing sales of Black Ops 4?

Source: The units sold come from eBay sales records and the values come from PriceCharting historic prices for Modern Warfare 2. New and disc only versions were excluded to standardize price comparison on different days.
