Gamestop’s Retro Shop is now open, selling SEGA Genesis and Dreamcast games and consoles

Gamestop has now launched its Retro Game Shop, where they are planning on selling a wide variety of old school consoles, games and accessories. Sadly only two SEGA consoles made their retro gaming list which are the SEGA Genesis and the SEGA Dreamcast. Not surprising seeing as those two consoles are the most popular SEGA consoles released in America, but makes me a bit sad that the SEGA Saturn and Master System are getting no love.

While the prices might not appeal to frugal game chasing collectors that are looking for the best bargain, it does have some decently priced items like $10 dollar Dreamcast controllers and a few games on both Genesis and Dreamcast for under $10 dollars.

Sadly the site doesn’t say if the games come complete with manual and case, so know that going in. What do you guys think of GameStop selling retro games once more?

    I think its great to do, and to welcome old and new gamers on console that they have mist out.
    Personally I wish the Netherlands would have a Gamestop.
    My last saturn game that I bought was Enemy Zero for Saturn around € 65

    It’s nice that they’re bringing back the older stuff, as I’ve long missed FuncoLand (which was absorbed by Gamestop). There are a few retro shops near me, but they don’t tend to have an amazing selection of games.

    I’ve always wondered if there’s a few large groups of retro games and consoles out there that get bought and sold behind the scenes and that’s why certain companies decide to start up or stop dong these type of retro stores.
