I loaded in new VGPC data today, so as usual, let me know if you see anything weird or missing!

Karaoke Revolution Party for Gamecube - https://www.pricecharting.com/game/gamecube/karaoke-revolution-party-w-microphone
Guitar Hero Live for Xbox 360 - https://www.pricecharting.com/game/xbox-360/guitar-hero-live-bundle?q=guitar+hero+live

Also, a question:
I have The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword for Wii, but I own just the game, not the controller bundle. When I search for it, I only see one result:

http://www.completionator.com/Game?keyword=Skyward%20Sword&sortColumn=GameName&sortDirection=ASC

But Pricecharting uses two separate listings for prices:

(game only)
https://www.pricecharting.com/game/wii/zelda-skyward-sword

(controller bundle)
https://www.pricecharting.com/game/wii/zelda-skyward-sword-[controller-bundle]

Shouldn't these be two separate entries that I can choose from when adding the game to my collection?

Karaoke Revolution and Guitar Hero Live are examples of music bundles that I haven't quite nailed down as far as VGPC integration goes.

The way we've been maintaining "games" here would mean that for Guitar Hero Live, there would be an entry for "Guitar Hero Live" (meaning the game itself) and "Guitar Hero Live (Guitar Controller)" (meaning, of course, the guitar controller). There would then be a third entry that would be a compilation title called "Guitar Hero Live (Bundle)" that includes the game and controller. Unfortunately, I haven't really dug into any of these titles to correctly load in the accessories side of things. This weirdness actually extends beyond music games into things like the Skylanders and Disney Infinity starter kits, which are also not being handled by the site today.

Anyways, I went ahead and added the above entries for Guitar Hero Live so everyone can see how they look and provide feedback. Since we haven't really dug into this stuff before, we can easily make adjustments before plowing through the rest of the titles. The entry we already had, which was simply titled "Guitar Hero Live", has been retained, though I have updated its box art to be the more traditional "software size" (CTRL+F5 if you still see the old one) and used the stretched out image for the bundle. VGPC doesn't quite line up to this pattern since they don't list the guitars by themselves, so in order to get pricing data, you will need to add the bundle entry to your collection (which should be hooked into VGPC). They do have some other entries for "Guitar Hero Live 2 Pack Bundle", but I'm not sure what that is (I'm assuming you get two guitars or something).

Phew! Now that we're through that stuff, let's talk about Skyward Sword

This is essentially the same thing as the music bundles, but with more traditional hardware (in this case, a Wii remote). I've loaded a handful of these titles, but the vast majority are not on the site at this moment. Once again though, VGPC does not list the Skyward Sword Wii Remote separately, so all we can do is link Skyward Sword (software only) and the bundle entry (i.e. the two you linked in your post).

@moho_00

Thanks for your response. I suppose the main thing is that you guys are aware that these issues are out there. I'm sure you'll figure out the best way to deal with it :)

Thanks for everything you do, I recommend this site to any collectors I meet!

@lordclyde - Sorry for the delay, I meant to post the other day, but ran out of time. I was able to take care of most of these, but had a few notes:

  • Rodea: The Sky Soldier - As you suspected, there doesn't appear to be a corresponding VGPC entry for the Wii version.
  • Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival - We have the base game mapped, but the bundle wasn't in the last batch of VGPC data I downloaded (they have since added an entry for it).
  • Ni No Kuni II - This one will be picked up in the next VGPC data load.

You may already know this, but for the various "editions" that you have listed, you'll need to enter the text when editing the game in your collection. You should see an autocomplete thingy to help you pick the correct one. Those come more or less directly from VGPC since I try to use their same naming convention. Let me know if you have any trouble or see anything that's still missing (other than the above)!

And always glad to hear when others enjoy and recommend the site! I hope you find it to be a helpful tool

Falco Amiibo
Robotron: 2084 (Atari 7800)
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (GBA)
Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (GBA)
Triple Action (Intellivision)
The Walking Dead (goes by The Walking Dead: The Game on VGPC) PS3

Also, is there any sort of contingency plan for the values of PC games? VGPC doesn't seem to give a crap about PC. for crying out loud, that site doesn't list Diablo or Command & Conquer. Maybe we could use the average Amazon sale price?

@jkersey450 - It looks like Chrom was recently added to VGPC since it's not showing up in the data I have. I'll get it with the next data load. Some of the others were already mapped and Falco is one of the ones that doesn't have a value for "complete" condition, which means it will show up empty here. I still haven't decided if it makes sense to "fall back" to the next level down, in this case the "loose" price. I'm not sure what's going on with the two GBA games though, I will have to look into that further.

As for PC games, it's not something that's really on my list at the moment. The nice thing about using something like VGPC is that I don't have to write something to (intelligently) scrape data, I just need to map it to their stuff. They completely dropped support for PC a while back, which kinda sucked since I had mapped a bunch of data, but ultimately they said there just wasn't enough interest to keep up with it.

@moho_00 - Looks like we could use a cleanup on the NOLF games. There's an entry for NOLF, and then a separate entry for The Operative: NOLF, which are the same game. Guessing it was back when entries were created based on different box art.

This is an interesting one since it looks like the PS2 port has some content changes, such as additional levels, extra gadgets, different music, and no multiplayer. I'm not too familiar with it though, but I loved the PC version

For the time-being, I've moved the VGPC mapping over to The Operative: NOLF, so prices should start showing up in collections now. I'll re-map if we decide to collapse the entries.

@lordclyde - All of those should be fixed up now, except for the imports. I know VGPC has some imports, but not all, unfortunately. If they start tracking them more, I might revisit the integration here to pull them in.
