Im making this post because this has happened quite a few times recently and i dont understand why.

I recently updated 119529 with disc and back cover images and the disc was accepted and the back cover disallowed and then you changed entry to [FR].  There is only one entry of this game in the PS2 EU database, to my knowledge there are only 2 releases of it in total, the EU release and the US release.  So i have no idea why this has been changed to French release, there was literally never a French release of this game.

I do notice that the Barcode is wrong on the entry but i dont like to change them as you usually never accept barcode changes. 

Video Game Database Discussion / Alternate cover - Pinball
« on: June 13, 2022, 03:25:23 pm »
Ive come across an alternate cover for a game in the database 55871

Every other metric is the same as this entry in the database except it has very different artwork on the front and back cover.  Totally different picture.  After checking Ebay there are alot of each variant so i have no idea which one takes precedent.

Sidenote: the game is called 'Play It Pinball' on the spine and not simply 'Pinball' as it currently sits in the database.  This brings up another question, Do you prefer the game title that appears on the front cover or on the spine of games in the database?

Video Game Database Discussion / Hitman: Blood Money variant
« on: May 06, 2022, 03:46:38 pm »
You have adjusted another one of my new submissions incorrectly.

The [Alternate Cover] for the EU Playstation2 release of Hitman: Blood Money has TWO magazines review scores on the front.  PSM and Official Playstation Magazine, scored at 93% and 9/10.  You have adjusted my text to show only one score.

Also you have called it a 'label', its not a label.  The entire insert is printed with these scores on it.  No labels.  Thats how its a variant.

Therefore your title amendment is incorrect and also the text you amended in the DESCRIPTION field.

Video Game Database Discussion / Resident Evil - Biohazard
« on: April 27, 2022, 01:40:43 pm »
You have refused an 'alt name' for an entry i asked to update.  Everyone knows that Resident Evil is called Biohazard in Japan (and some other countries) and the controller is named differently due to this.  Basically collectors know to search for this item using both names in English, the Japanese translated name and the English name on the box. 

If this isnt a genuine aka then i really dont know what is...

Here is an article mentioning it.


The database listing for the FF XII strategy guide is for 2 different guides.  The first two photos show the standard edition and the third photo is of the Limited Edition release.  The bar code appears to also be the Limited Edition.  It looks like this listing has become a mix of two different products.

I have the standard edition so i can create the correct listing for this if you want.

Video Game Database Discussion / QUESTION: PS1 Destruction Derby
« on: March 12, 2022, 10:56:09 am »
There are two releases of the PS1 EU game Destruction Derby and i cant see how the database can accommodate both releases. So i need some advice how to enter them.

Basically the first release came in whats known as a 'big box' which is essentially a double CD case.  This came with 2x manuals and a demo disc housed in the second disc slot called 'Autumn/Christmas releases'.

The second release came out in the standard PS1 case with just one disc and one thicker manual, containing all the original information from the first releases 2 manuals.

They both have the exact same Product number, cover art, back art etc.  The only detail i can see thats different is the barcode number.

How do you want this difference entered into the database?

(Ive got pics if that helps)

Video Game Database Discussion / Guitar Hero question
« on: February 10, 2022, 05:23:19 pm »
I have discovered that there are two versions of the PS2 Guitar Hero game and was wondering how to enter/create this into the database.

It appears that there are two different item numbers for the game, one for the game that came with the full pack including the guitar and the other for the game if it was bought separately.  Right now we only have one in the database, the one which came with the guitar controller and yet that is not specified anywhere on the entry.

SLES-54093 = without the guitar
SLES-54132 = with guitar pack

How can we get both of these entered into the database correctly?

Video Game Database Discussion / N-GAGE Item Numbers
« on: November 09, 2020, 11:43:03 am »
I have just added alot of fields to the N-Gage Videogame database and all edits were accepted except the 'Item Number'. Im confused as to why.

I literally took the numbers direct from the spine of the game case, where almost all Videogame Catalogue numbers are located.  Below is an example of where the Item/Catalogue numbers are located on N-Gage games.

There is another (different) unique identifying number located on the cart itself, as shown in the image below.  But this number would not be used as a catalogue number by the fact that the cart lives inside of the game case, therefore its impossible to use this number in the industry, as an identifier, due to the fact you cannot see this number when its 'on the shelf'.  Its my understanding that all 'item numbers' are codes used in the games industry for stock identification purposes. 

Can someone at VGCollect please confirm which catalogue/item/identifying number is the one you find acceptable on N-Gage games please.
