    Choosing between physical stores and online shopping can be a tough decision. Both options have their advantages, but the best choice will depend on your individual needs and preferences.

    Let’s compare the benefits of each to help you make the right decision for your retro gaming needs.

    Physical Stores

    These offer the unique opportunity to examine and test games and consoles before purchasing and providing a hands on understanding of the product. Additionally, you can receive expert advice and assistance from knowledgeable staff, ensuring that you make informed decisions.

    However, the cost of running a physical store is enormous, so expect to pay much higher prices in these stores.

    Benefits of Online Shopping

    Online shopping at retro game stores provides convenience and access to a vast selection of products, often at competitive prices. With the ability to shop anytime and from anywhere, you can easily compare prices and read reviews from other customers. Shop 24/7 from your phone while on the beach? Sure. Online gaming stores never close and are always ready to express parcels to your door. Regional customers can finally gain access to goods via online shopping.

    Searching the entire retro game store is often much easier online compared to a physical store as you can quickly type in a keyword and find that hidden gem you're after.

    Grading and overall condition of our games are described from excellent condition, very good and good so you have confidence to what you're buying.

    Online shopping also offers the advantage of quick and easy returns, making it a convenient choice for many gamers.

    Making the Best Choice for You

    Ultimately, the ideal choice for your retro game needs will depend on your personal preferences. Physical stores offer a unique experience and the satisfaction of supporting your local community but at a much higher price. You really pay for that in store experice.

    On the other hand, online shopping provides convenience, customer service via phone and email, a wide selection of products, and much more competitive prices.

    Consider your priorities and choose the option that best suits your needs.

    Keeping Your Retro Collection in Great Working Order

    Maintaining your retro gaming collection is essential to ensure its longevity and functionality. Proper storage, cleaning, and maintenance can help preserve your games and consoles, allowing you to enjoy them for years to come. It’s important to store your games and consoles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and dust like carpets.

    Proper Storage Techniques

    Storing your retro games and consoles correctly is crucial to their preservation. Use durable plastic containers, airtight plastic storage cases, and clear game cart plastic sleeves to protect your collection from dust and damage.

    Keep your items in a cool, dry environment away from direct sunlight and humidity to prevent warping and discoloration.

    Cleaning and Maintenance Tips

    Regular cleaning and maintenance are essential for keeping your games and consoles in top condition. Use a soft cloth and a mild cleaning solution to gently clean both the exterior of the console and the interior of the game cartridges. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could damage your collection.

    The only chemical we recommend is Isopropyl Alcohol for cleaning your game cart pins. Just apply a little onto the game pins themselves, then rub with a cotton bud to take off years or tarnish and corrosion. You'll find the games boot much more reliably when kept clean. Never blow on them... as this moisture corrodes the pins.

    Repairing and Restoring Damaged Items

    Should your retro games or consoles require repair or restoration, it’s important to use the appropriate tools and equipment. Take your time and have patience when repairing and restoring items, as rushing the process could lead to further damage.

    If in doubt, we provide an extensive range of professional video game console repairs and upgrades.
