We hand-restore old consoles and upgrade them with modern tech
Find inspiration in a classic console with a PlayStation Notebook. Based on the iconic original Sony console, the PlayStation Notebook features a retro-cool cover making it a great gift for PlayStation fans. A softbound notebook containing 200 blank pages, the PlayStation Notebook is the perfect place to log gaming strategies, future game wish-lists, and all manner of other gaming related notes and memos.
The first gaming console to ever ship 100 million units, the original PlayStation was launched by Japan based electronics company Sony in 1994, rapidly becoming one of the best known gaming brands in the world. With successive consoles building on that original unprecedented success (including the best-selling console of all time, the PlayStation 2), the iconic image, name and logos of the Sony brand are instantly recognizable with gamers of all ages. The PlayStation controller, with its distinctive shape and iconic button symbols of a green triangle, blue x, red circle and pink square, are now virtually synonymous with console gaming in general.
A great gift for gamers of all ages, the PlayStation Notebook is an officially licensed product.
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.
