Any questions or details contact us via email.
We take your original Game Boy Pocket and start by taking it apart fully. We clean the PCB, replace any broken or worn components such as the Link connection, volume and power switches, and do a full hardware test to confirm good working order is restored.
The service includes repair of all common faults free of charge including:
Other repairs can be done at a cost (typically less than £10 per repair) such as:
Any issues that are outside of the standard repair can also be repaired. In which case we will contact you if we identify such issues and let you know the price of repair. PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking to keep your original shell we cannot accommodate the IPS screen upgrade as it requires cutting the shell which is time consuming and has the potential to ruin your original shell.
Next, we add your customized upgrades such as a new shell, upgraded screen, audio amp, capacitor replacement and so on.
The finishing touch is your original restored console boxed and sealed in a RetroSix box to make it feel like new again.
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Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.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, HIMITSUNOVA in Japan and Perth Retro Gaming in Australia. In 2021 we partnered with RetroReiZ in Germany and The Retro Game Corner in Ireland. We 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
