We hand-restore old consoles and upgrade them with modern tech
The original Game Boy, the revolutionary hand-held 8-bit console released April 21, 1989, sold over 118 million consoles worldwide.
This brand new IPS kit comes with a new PCB to replace the entire front PCB. A brand new IPS screen of the exact same original resolution as the Game Boy original screen.
The kit comes pre-built with a bracket, assembled together, and a new speaker pre-soldered to the board. Only 3 small simple cuts to your front shell are needed and then the screen sits in place. Skill level 1!

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. We are aiming at the small, limited quantity, but hand-build and restored market.
All work, restoration, 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. 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. Check them out at https://handheldlegend.com
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Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
