A new subscription service for retro gamers that follows the successful Loot Crate formula has been unveiled.
It's called My Retro Game Box. Subscribers will each receive a random selection of retro games that are theirs to keep. The supported formats are NES, SNES, N64, Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, GBA, Master System and Mega Drive/Genesis.
Both PAL and NTSC titles are available, and the service ships worldwide. Users can also specify genre likes or dislikes – such as no sports games. All games are guaranteed to be working. And clean.
Membership costs $35 a month, $100 for three months, $190 for six months or $350 for a year. There are no contracts, with long-term memberships paid in advance. Shipping to the UK is free.
We want you to help us make good choices for you, but we draw the line at giving us a wish-list, otherwise it just isn't a surprise,” the site said. It will also be important to find out if you're a fun loving collector, who won't be bothered with a scuff or a faded label here and there. That kind of thing can greatly effect the value of the games, so you'll be missing out on gaming fun if you need your games to be in mint condition.
We have a budget to spend on you every month and we'll try to get the balance of great games/number of games right. The more consoles you have the better - if we're not limited then you're likely to receive more.”
