https://www.kijiji.it/ no longer works as of 31st of May.
If the list is opened up to stores I think https://www.webster.it/page_videogames.htm could be an alright source for the Italy section. While a lot of the images are watermarked (and occasionally cropped), it does help to identify if Italian variants exist, barcodes etc for more recent consoles.

No to that Webster site. It uses stock photos. Also, do not use barcodes from sites like that. Verify on actual images instead. Often those sites will have an incorrect barcode enough of the time that they cannot be trusted.

Removed the kijiji site from Italy.

Iran
Technosun | example product page

Kenya
Jiji
PigiaMe

Apparently Kenya has a fairly large video gaming community. I was prompted to look into their classifieds finding an eBay UK listing for God of War Collection released in Kenya.

Saudi Arabia
Jeddah Shalla7 | example item listing

They may not be fit to add to the formal list, but Digikala (Iran) and Xcite (Saudi Arabia) are worth at least mentioning too.

Also, as a small aside, there seems to be a video game content rating system for Kenya, but I can't find any information about it. In addition to God of War Collection above, I found another game featuring a different rating label.

Added those sites.

It seems the agency for Kenya rating let their domain expire, but Wikipedia has this image

Text descriptions here:

But the images on that game looks slightly different, as it has some white text on the blue circle, so there may be some deritive rating they use that isn't exactly the film one.

I found these results using this in google:

site:co.ke "not suitable for persons"

Amazon Saudi Arabia may be worth adding to the list. Many game listing pages feature both front and back cover scans.

I found this article stating that the site has closed.
