So I’m not crazy; it did used to list PC games right?

Yes, until a couple of weeks ago.

Declined

Thanks for your input. Here is an article explaining why we decided to remove PC games.

http://blog.pricecharting.com/2016/09/pc-and-mac-games-being-deprecated.html


Summary: They cost us the most of all the consoles to gather price data on (in terms of dollars and server resources). PC was one of the least popular consoles on the site. We decided to use those resources to improve the experience for users on the rest of the site instead.


We posted our plans, removed them from the site, and waited for feedback from users before taking any action to actually stop collecting this data. Only a handful of people asked us to keep it. We decided it was still best to remove PC games.

well screw you, PriceCharting! I was regularly using it to check on value for PC games, but now, it's complete crap, thanks for removing a feature many peoples used!


Compare that to this here: "Hey, remember that door we used to keep open for our PC users? well we removed the knob and we sealed the door now, so you can't use it anymore, so bug off!"

PC Games were 0.4% of our pageviews but 30% of our products and a high percentage of server resources checking all the sales for all those products. I am sorry that we had to remove a feature that some people used.

I miss the PC game feature as well, I know I used the crap out of it, and I can find nothing like it. Any suggestions of a similar resource?

If you email me I can send you the most recent data we had before we stopped tracking it.

I really needed this feature. Maybe it will be added again in the future when more people become interested in collecting PC games.
