[Event Update] RetroCollect's Video Game Market (Saturday March 15th, 2014)

Video-Game-Market-15th-March-2014If you haven't already heard the news, in two weeks time RetroCollect is hosting the UK's very first Video Game Market! This unique event will replicate everything we love about eBay and car boot sales by providing a huge hall filled to the brim with nothing but retro game sellers, people selling off their collections, gaming merchandise and even more. If there was ever a time to grab a bargain, this is it!

On Saturday 15th March 2014 at 10am, the Video Game Market will kick off in the centre of Leeds opening its doors to retro gamers across the country. Since our last update we have accumilated a massive fourty tables worth of traders (completely selling out of trader spaces)  varying from the likes of Console Passion, Forbidden Planet, Flashback Games and Retro Towers, to even RetroCollect forum members and locals who will be selling off spares and bits of their collection.

The buying and selling side of things, however, is not where this lucrative event ends. Later on in the evening (should you have any pennies left) we'll also be taking over the back room of the local pub Foley's, with the aim of all catching up and discussing video games into the early hours. If that wasn't enough to tempt you for whatever reason, it has been suggested that several arcade machines will also be making an appearance at the event alongside an all new retro-themed indie game hoping to get your help on Steam Greenlight.

Expect to see countless retro & modern games, rare titles, Japanese & US import releases, Everdrive cartridges, video game merchandise, RGB cables, box protectors, toys, comics & books, strategy guides, modified consoles and much much more! Some sellers will also be providing disc cleaning services too, along with part-exchange and trading being encouraged too for those short on cash.

So get yourself up to Leeds on the 15th March for a day of retro gaming fun.
