Our Online Magazine
Clicking the Online Magazine button will take to the part of the Retrogames website for everything written. In time we hope it will build into an important guide to everything retro. We are currently working on some new guides and features which we hope will prove highly popular. We are also on the look out for contributors, so if you’ve previously written for our Retrogames magazine, or fancy telling the world about a particular format or facet of collecting, then why not get in touch. You could well see your credited work published on the site, which attracts in excess of two million hits per month.
Our Ebay Shop Has Grown
Our Ebay shop is where we put all our bargain games, duplicates items, games without manuals, newer formats, and unusual Retro odds and ends. It now includes over one thousand items, so is worth checking out. But, don’t worry, all the best stuff stays within the Retrogames.co.uk site.
Sell or Trade your Games
Whether you’re bored with your entire collection and want to sell it, or you’ve got a few duplicates you would like to swap for something else, just click the ‘Sell your Items’ option on the left for all the details on how to sell and exchange your items. Thanks to our great prices, we’ve bought more collections in the past ten years than any other retro company.

Thanks again Jason
I have been monitoring your site for sometime now. I'm not just saying this but it is the best on the web for retro gaming and accessories. Your web site is very professional and easily navigated. All the best - look forward to future purchases from you. Regards, Ross
Many big thanks for the fast, safe and correct delivery of my shipment! The sinclair magazines arrived (both parcels) early this week, which was faster than I'd thought they would!
Items were in very, very good condition considering their age. This of course only confirms that the descriptions and ratings in your shop are correct and reliable! I will for certain recommend retrogames.co.uk to everyone interested in retrogaming.
Thanks again, it was a pleasure doing business with you. Keep up the good work with your excellent website. Sverker from Sweden
HI there. Received Samurai Shodown 2 this morning. Thanks alot for another super smooth transaction. Cheers Simeon.
Package recieved as described. No transport damage. Popped it in my NES and played it start to finish in 30 minutes.
Perfect :) Best nostalgia related money I ever spent. Sincerely Roy
I received Star Wars Return of The Jedi for the Atari ST yesterday and it works perfectly, and is an excellent game, I'm delighted with it. Also Road Runner works, which is another great game. I thought it might not have worked because it stated it required a colour monitor, but it works fine on my T.V.
I just need to say that the service I've received from you is impeccable, just as it was in the past when I've ordered from you. You take customer service to a whole new higher level. I'm quite literally astounded by your goodwill and generosity.I've been browsing your website again last night and am going to make a further order of multiple items later on this evening. Again, thank you very much for your service, it never fails to bring a genuine smile to my face.
Regards, Chris Williams, Fishguard
Hi, Just a quick e-mail to say Thank You for your quality of service I recieved when ordering my retro mega drive games with you.Your website was easy to use all the games came in awesome condition and the speed in which I received them was rapid. I will certainly be recommending your company to friends who also own retro console's. Be well, Andy Wraith
Just writing this email about my order for a Gamecube controller I recently placed. I have nothing but good things to say. The order status system was excellent, the delivery was prompt, and not to mention the great done with packaging it, showing you're someone with enthusiasm for gaming rather than these cowboys on eBay and Amazon. Not to mention, the price was absolutely fantastic. Will definitely shop here again, and again many thanks for the professional, and considerate service. Dumoon.
I always shop with peace in my mind, when I buy from you, because you have the best service I have experienced in the business:
You always pack your items very carefully in a strong cardboard box, (never any squashed game cases (unless they were squashed to begin with ;-), you always ship larger orders registered, and you ship very fast. And you remember to make contact with your customers with issues like this for example. You keep your promises...
You may think this is a little too much now, but you deserve the kind comments. I am sure you have had some of your customers for many years for these reasons and more. Some of your rivals - if I can call them that - could learn a lot from you about service. Thanks again Jason Jan - Denmark
Hi, Firstly I want to say how impressed I am with the service you have provided. You were very professional and the items were delivered promptly and as described. Secondly I am starting to collect old retro electronic games and consoles and will definitely be using your services again, so again thank you very much. Kind regards, Paul
Thanks for the very quick delivery.I have been trying to get hold of this game for donkeys years and just found it by total fluke on your site 2 days before my brothers birthday. My brother is going to love it as this was his favourite game back in the 80's, Cheers and love the site Mike
