Question: do you plan on importing non-North American pricing data if it’s available on pricecharting.com? For example, I have several Japanese Pokémon games, and they have entries on priceharting’s website. I thought I remembered someone on these forums saying foreign (non-US) pricing data was not going to be added, but I can’t remember when or who said it. It’s possible I’m wrong and made it up too, so I thought I’d ask.

I definitely plan to add support for PAL and JP releases at some point. I need to rework the way VGPC integration works to add in a layer for region since I had to lock it down to North America initially. It's on my list though

Also, I loaded in some new data today and adding the requested mappings from a few posts back!

Thanks! How will we know when you've added international pricing data? The release notes section?

Yep, I'll include it in a release notes post and I'll try to remember to post in here prior to its release since it's the main VGPC thread we have.

I was able to wire up the other regions with our VGPC integration today and it will be going out with the next release (likely this weekend). When I do, I'll need to run a few scripts to switch things over and while I've tested everything, I'm mentioning it here in case anyone notices anything odd with their estimated values.

Also, please keep in mind that the other regions have NOT been mapped here on Completionator, so only North American games are going to report values until that happens (which will be a gradual process over time). If you have any in particular that you want wired up, feel free to post here and I'll make those a priority. For now, the only page that will be impacted is the Collection page. Pricing data (other than North America) will not be on the Wish List page, the Game Details page, etc. I'll be adding support for these other features soon though

I don't think VGPC has all JP / PAL games listed, so there will still likely be a lot of holes in pricing data. But we'll at least no longer be limited to North America!

The aforementioned VGPC update is now live! Let me know if you notice any weirdness with prices. I'll be working on getting the other regions set up soon

Also, I'm not sure if it has to do with the recent update, but I noticed that Alien Isolation for Xbox 360 lost its pricing data. I'm almost 100% that it used to have it. Here it is if you need to relink it: https://www.pricecharting.com/game/xbox-360/alien-isolation

I think I've wired up the Pokemon games you listed, as well as We Happy Few. Alien Isolation is actually something I was messing with recently because I'm researching Xbox 360 titles and that's one of the ones on my list to finalize. I'm trying to determine if there was ever a "regular" version or if they're all the "Nostromo Edition".

@moho_00, interesting that you mention that, as I think every copy I've ever seen of Alien Isolation for Xbox 360 has been the Nostromo Edition. However, pricecharting.com only lists the "regular" version...
Thanks for all the effort you put in!

Alien Isolation had a couple of different physical editions in other regions for 360. I've seen plain "Alien Isolation" covers and also "Ripley Edition" covers. Dunno much more about it than that though. I've yet to see a legit looking physical cover for a North America region Alien Isolation that didn't say Nostromo Edition though.

Yakuza Remastered Collection for PS4 - https://www.pricecharting.com/game/playstation-4/the-yakuza-remastered-collection
(Not sure about this next one. Pricecharting has an entry for it, but there is no price data available. I don't know if you can link it anyway and wait for pricing data to show up or not.)
Hellmut: The Badass from Hell for PS4 - https://www.pricecharting.com/game/playstation-4/hellmut-the-badass-from-hell
Also, I think you linked up Avicii Invector for Xbox One a while back (thanks), but I'm still not seeing pricing data, even though there is pricing data on Pricecharting.com. Is it because there are only a few sold entries?

The Yakuza Remastered Collection and Hellmut should be fixed up now.

As for Avicii Invector, it's just a matter of the last export I pulled from VGPC did not have any pricing data for it. The mapping is set up, so once we get some new data, it should automatically fill out (same applies to Hellmut.)
