Monthly Subscription Service For Retro Video Games

March 17, 2015


My Retro Game Box is a subscription service that sends you three video games a month depending on what retro consoles you have and what kind of games you like to play. Consoles currently supported include NES, SNES, N64, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Sega Mastersystem, Sega Masterdrive and Sega Genesis. The games they send (which you get to keep, this isn't a rental service) are based on your gaming preferences, but you don't actually get to choose the games, so it's a mystery. Subscriptions start around £65 (~$96) for three months (~£22 or $32/month) and get a little cheaper the more months you subscribe. Alternatively, get on eBay and buy the games you know you want. Although -- getting mystery packages is fun. *shaking box* Take this one for example. "GW? That package is clearly addressed to your neighbor." Last week I got a juicer!

Thanks to I'm Not Crazy, You're Crazy!, hands down one of my favorite arguments.

    Not a bad service but not my favorite either. For the price and quality of games, I have been using and like what they have sent as well as their prices. You can list the games you already have and make a wish list of games you want. Plus you can choose to receive between 1 and 4 games per month. They won my business.

    Considering most of the best games available have been snatched up by collectors and gamers already.. it's probably gonna be a lot of crap.

    Hell, for $96/month, you could easily accumulate a massive and awesome retro collection within a year.

    I can see lets-players using this to their advantage.

  • Makes me want to find out my Mega Drive.

  • Any of you guys remember the SEGA Channel? This feels like that, only backwards and 17 years too late.

  • MustacheHam

    This is perfect for folks who want the real experience with the good retro times or for younger generations who are curious of such an experience. Emulators are nice and everything, but if one must fully honor the game they must use the real gear.

    *steps off soapbox*

  • KLanD

    Not really.. for the price.

  • Halfaxia

    uhhhh No, these loot crates are obviously for throwing money down the train

  • Leland_Gaunt

    Or you can get an free emulator and a torrent of every game ever made. We can have our instant gratification and eat it too, kids!!

  • Izy Betancourt

    But you can't have Mystery torrents

    Nice try Satan, but my soul already was corrupted by the internet!

  • Leland_Gaunt

    Sorry, I had to try. :)

    It's a cool concept, until you get 3 copies of John Madden for the SNES every month.

  • It does seem like a great idea for those gamers with small retro libraries who want a surprise selection each month.

  • Cherushi

    They actually have a library that you set up, showing what games you already have. And when they send you your games, they're added to the library, so you're guaranteed to never receive the same copy of a game.
