We remake old console hardware and parts for the new age
Refresh and refuel before loading up a great new Space Invaders level with this retro-cool Space Invaders Heat Change Mug! Featuring a classic level screen from the iconic alien shooter arcade game, just add a hot drink to see the image 'load up' – displaying a new wave of alien enemies each time you settle down for a good cuppa.
First launched into the gaming universe in 1978, Space Invaders took the industry to new orbits with its gameplay, graphics and sound. Once dubbed the 'first blockbuster video game', Space Invaders was the best-selling video game of its time, and its original arcade machines are now collectors items for their nostalgic and cultural value. Always immensely popular, Space Invaders is a true classic and even 40 years later holds retro-cool appeal to fans and gamers of all ages. With its iconic imagery of pixelated aliens moving unceasingly closer to the player, the style and legacy of this true original is now ubiquitous with the history of gaming itself. Great for fans and gamers, the Space Invaders Heat Change Mug is an officially licensed product, and is an ideal gift solution for birthdays, Christmas stocking fillers or even the office Secret Santa.
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Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.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.
