RETRO-GAMES ACQUIRED BY INTERNET RESELLER CHILLOUT GAMES
Online game supplier Chillout Games has acquired the website and inventory of retro-games.co.uk. Both businesses operate in the used console games industry in the UK.
Dreamcast Stock

Chillout Games (established in 2003) sells used and new games, consoles and accessories released for Ps2, xBox and other major consoles.

We started out selling Playstation One and still hold a huge Ps1 range

Retro-Games (online in 2000) stocks used games, systems and accessories for retro and classic games consoles and computers. Retro-Games started out stocking a range of NES, Megadrive, SNES and Spectrum games and games for niche platforms e.g. Vectrex and early handhelds (Wonderswan, NeoGeo Pocket). It  hosts a retro museum and information pages for all retro games. The site also has retro-games programming info as well as freeware and in-house PC remakes of classic video games to download for free.

We bought retro-games.co.uk principally because of the mini goldmine of retro information squeezed into this site's pages. Our products are edging their way into the twilight zone that is retro-gaming and what better site to welcome them.

Chillout Games can use its expertise (learned the hard way with Ps1 discs and cases) in turning around used and abused retro games. We're dying to get stuck into cartridges and cassettes.

Donkey Kong Arcade Machine
Why call it "Donkey" Kong?
A family business, we grew up with games in the 70-80’s and have fond memories of fiddling with Pong knobs, Star Trek PC (with sectors and Klingons – anyone know that game?), Bugaboo the Flea on squidgey Spectrum buttons, Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker on Megadrive and getting the all-time high score for 10p on Donkey Kong in a chippy in Stratford-on-Avon in my school lunch break (the machine froze otherwise I would have kept going - honest!)
 

Back to business: The inventory is now in dedicated bays for the bulky cartridge boxes and consoles to make picking easier. By the end of June, we expect to have a fully reconciled stock of retro games ready for dispatch. We will also have some Playstation One spill over inventory from Chillout Games along with more Megadrive, NES and Nintendo 64 games. It will take some time to freshen up the stock and get additional sought-after titles in there so please keep checking back over the coming months.

 

The retro-games.net shopping website will resume taking orders soon. We're in the middle of moving the chillout site to asp so the two carts will be combined at the same time

Nintendo 64 Mario Kart
This month is N64 buying month!!

We do buy stock from customers on the following link: Sell games (UK only). Be warned – some games are worth more than others, so please pass your Fifa 96s on to your local freecycle group and not us! We especially love RPGs, kids and party games, horror and fighting.

Retro-Games will retain its established look and feel (oh err missus), logo and most of the content. On a rolling basis over the next few months(years more like!), we will be looking to reinstate the forum, drop the defunct newsletter and allow users to update the museum and game information pages as we can’t do it all ourselves.
