We'd like to introduce you to a work-in-progress here on Dealspwn, Gamebase. Basically, it's a price comparison tool for video games, with prices from many UK retailers. The tool has only just been launched and is in the beta stages right now. We've only got a few games on there at the minute, all games that have been recently posted on Dealspwn. But over the coming weeks, we hope to build that database up to the thousands of video games out there!
We're also combining this with a widget which you will notice in some Dealspwn posts. You can see a good example here, on the Operation Flashpoint review. Our widget shows you the best price for this game, on all platforms available.
We do have a lot of work to do on the price comparison tool, and a few cool features to add.
- Currently, it doesn't check stock levels, but we will be implementing that feature soon.
- We will also be adding a historical price checker, which will be used when we have a lot more data collected on game prices over time.
- We will be adding email alerts, so you can be notified when there is a major price drop on a game that you are interested in.
- We'll also be adding a reporting feature, so you can point out any issues you might find.
- Additionally, the basic list of games in the left sidebar will be replaced with a search function, and filtering by game platforms.
We hope that someday, Gamebase @ Dealspwn will be your first stop for video game price comparisons.
