We remake old console hardware and parts for the new age
Developed under the name "Project Mercury", the Game Gear was the primary competition to the Game Boy, the Atari Lynx and the TurboExpress.
One of the downsides of the Game Gear is the screen. The original often fails, and even when it works is very outdated, dim and low contrast, not to mention power hungry.
We decided to improve that by making an easy to install, ultra low power, modern screen driver board, that allows you to use the TFT screen (sold separately).
Easy to install, just remove 3 components, and solder a handful of pads onto the board with no wires (if you use the optional wire-free kit). Install can be done in a matter of minutes.
Buy your TFT screen and mounting brackets separately.
Comes with CleanScreen PCB. Requires a TFT screen, mounting brackets, and optionally the wire-free install kit.
Install guide available at https://support.retrosix.co.uk
* Remember to buy your TFT screen, as well as the optional wire-free install kit for your version of console.
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Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.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
