About Us

Here’s the scoop.  If you’re in our store, you’ll hear Tim give this speech. It’s what we do in a nutshell.

We buy, sell, and trade any game system ever made. This includes every part, cable, and controller to all those systems. From Atari and NES to Xbox One and PS4, we have it all.  We are family owned and 100% local to Austin.

We love our customers and community. We really like sharing our knowledge and passion for gaming with y’all. We are always happy to answer any questions about gaming that you might have or just nerd out. We aren’t interested in selling you one game, we are interested in making this the store where you buy all your games. We’ll don’t want to sell you something you don’t need to make your gaming experience just right or pressure you into buying something. We have to be about to sleep at night with a clean conscience.

What we buy

We buy any console ever made, along with all the cables, controllers, and games to those systems.   A complete system should include the console (of course) one 1st party controller and all the cables.  If you are missing a cable or controller don’t worry we’ll still take it, just at a discount. We buy disc games with or without the original box, however games without box art will be taken in at a discount. But like all things that are too good to be true there are some exceptions:

  • We don’t take broken consoles. There isn’t much we can do with them unfortunately aside building furniture. This includes: Red Ring Of Death, Yellow Bar Of Death, disc read errors, broken ports, etc.
  • We don’t buy controllers or cables with exposed wiring. Shocking.
  • Past generation third party controllers with the exception of some Logitechs.
  • Turtle Beach headsets
  • Anything with battery acid in it.
  • Buggy systems (meaning full of bugs)
  • Cracked or warped discs
  • Xbox 360s that are older than 2008 and PS3s that are backwards compatible with PS2 games
