We remake old console hardware and parts for the new age
All you need to replace your old game case is a tri-wing screwdriver to remove the single screw.
Remove the circuit board, place it in the new shell and screw it down.
Now would be the perfect time to clean the PCB and gold pins with IPA fluid and replace the coin cell battery if there is one (to keep your game saves working)
We recommend removing the original game label by warming up the sticker with a hair dryer and using a thin plastic card or similar to slide under the label and lift it off. Then use a bit of paper glue to re-stick it to the new case.
If you require a screwdriver to open up the original game our Screwdriver Pair Tri-Wing Philips set is ideal. Check out our store if you need them.
RetroSix is a small team of people who have been in the gaming industry and retail business since 2013, and sold consoles, controllers and even designed our own controllers and consoles.
Putting that expertise to good use, we decided to start RetroSix; a small team of people passionate about retro gaming, and restoring original consoles to like-new, adding our own twist and style to them and in general bringing a modern twist to retro.
Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business, instead with the aim of perfection. Recreating moulds of original shells, casting them from quality ABS, redesigning hardware such as power supplies, USB-C, audio and more, to upgrade your consoles to the highest quality available. No cheap junk sold for profit.
All restoration work, modifications, improvements and so on are done in the UK, in-house by hand and all attention to detail and care is taken for every order. You can be assured that your order has been inspected not only by a real person but someone who knows about and is excited by gaming and retro, and no sub-par product leaves our doors.
In 2020 we partnered with Hand Held Legend in the USA, and Himitsu Kichi in Japan. I believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer.
