Why don't I just put my games on an auction site:

  • 2) With us there's no picture to take or description to fill in
  • 3) No separate listings to fill in for each game or category of games
  • 4) We are a business Not an individual - there's no chasing us for payment or bad feedback against you
  • 5) Our price is fixed for 14 days providing the items are correctly stated whereas the final auction price could be disappointing
  • 6) No nasty PayPal clawbacks - our PayPal payment to you cannot be clawed back whereas auction payments can be reversed months later

**£118 assumes £1.30 listing fee, 10% final value fee, 3.4% payment fee and £7 postage.

About Us:

Retro-Games specializes in rare, collectible and imported video games for all platforms since 1980. The business was established in 2003 and we now have over 150,000 customers in 44 countries around the world.

We stock games, consoles and accessories for all the major console platforms, retro machines and handhelds and in the past 16 years our catalogue has grown to over 40,000 titles. As of January 2019, there are 20,000 high resolution pictures of actual games for sale on the site. Most of our games are used/ preowned but we also sell some new factory sealed games.

We also run a retro games website retro-games.co.uk which we acquired in 2007 together with a sizeable inventory of retro gaming stock. The site has a great retro gaming museum and we are currently working on improving the links between the two sites.
