Further to our article last week about being able to find out what's inside the bag before you buy, the German website bricks.inof.de has posted information showing which barcode relates to which minifig.
There's still some uncertainty as to which countries the information presented relates to, but my guess is that there will be two types of packaging: North American and everywhere else. The NA packets will have barcodes on the right, as shown on the Eurobricks picture, and everywhere else will have them on the left. The information at the link above is for left-barcoded packets.
Update: It's now confirmed that the information at inof.de does also relate to the packets that will be available in the UK, and the barcodes on the US packets are different.
