Retrogaming and Japanese video games our shopping tips

Regarding retrogaming and Japanese console games, it is important to pay attention to the seller and the description of the items.

Indeed, the condition of the item may vary depending on several factors. The presence or not of a box, the functioning or not of the game... Moreover, by buying from specialized stores, the seller will be a professional in the sale of Japanese retrogaming products. Descriptions can be more detailed, and the operation of the game tested before shipping. In case you buy your items on retail or non-specialized sales platforms, the seller may not be a professional. Some offers may be cheaper on sites such as Mercari or Yahoo! JAPAN Auction, but the non-professionalism of the sellers opens the possibility of errors in the description or even in the worst cases, of scamming the seller.

So remember to compare offers and choose the ones that suit you best according to your preferences.
