GH11: March Madness Showdown – Part 1

GameStop’s Retro Classics Available.

GameStop surprised people by announcing they were getting back into the classic video game business and, this week, it becomes reality. As of today, GameStop has officially launched its Retro Classics collection which consists of consoles and games, all pre-owned of course, from the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System), Sega Genesis, SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System), N64, PS1 (original PlayStation), and Sega Dreamcast (yes… the Dreamcast).

A quick glance at their website this morning only showed three consoles for online sale, the Genesis for $34.99, the original PlayStation and the slightly updated PlayStation Slim (also known as the PSOne at times) for $39.99. So, maybe you have to stop in store and be lucky enough to find one of the other consoles. All three consoles are noted as refurbished. Now, they have listings for other consoles, even though they are out of stock. It looks like either version of the NES or SNES will run $59.99, $49.99 for a N64 or Dreamcast.

Then, of course, are the games. Games range in price drastically from about $6.99 for something like Tetris 2 for the NES all the way up to $79.99 for Dreamcast’s Canon Spike or Conker’s Bad Fur Day for the N64, and even $89.99 for Chrono Trigger for the SNES. You can also pick up a Nintendo Power Glove for $39.99, assuming it’s in stock!

GameStop is sure to add more to its collection, so keep your eyes peeled if this is something you’re interested in. Don’t forget, though, you can pick up a new Retro Duo or similar off-brand console that plays classic games like NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis without needing to pick up a refurbished console. So, make sure you know what you’re getting and why. I love classic games. In fact, my SNES Mario Kart died, so I might see if I can possibly pick up a new copy but when my SNES finally died, I picked up a Retro Duo and since it uses the original controllers and games, it’s worked perfectly.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to some classic video game purchases? Do you wish they added GameBoy to the list? What about Sega Saturn or even older games like Atari? Comment below and let me know!
