About Us

Serving the gaming community for the past 18 years, Chillout Games specialises in rare, collectible and import video games from Atari 2600 to PS4. The business was established in 2003 and we now have over 250,000 customers in 44 countries around the world.

We stock games, consoles and accessories for all the major console platforms, retro machines and handhelds and our catalogue has grown to over 45,000 titles. As of July 2021, there are 600,000 high resolution pictures of actual games for sale (or in the sales history) on the site. Most of our games are used/ preowned but we also sell some new factory sealed games.

We also run a retro games website which we acquired in 2007 together with a sizeable inventory of retro gaming stock. The site has a great retro gaming museum and we are currently working on improving the links between the two sites.

We have advertised prominently in national gaming publications over the past 8 years with ads in Official Playstation, Retro Gamer and Edge.

Other Developments:

The 'Sell My Games' pricing tool was launched in 2010 to get an instant valuation for your game collection.

In 2011, we expanded into 1,900 sq ft premises in Manchester

In 2013, we increased the choice of couriers to send in your games to four including two convenient drop off services.

2015 saw the completion of the challenging task of photographing every game for sale - several 100s of thousands of photos over the past 12 months.

At the start of 2016, we moved into a 2,500 sq ft unit in an historic Industrial Park with gated entry, easy access for couriers and close to major road and air routes.

In December 2018, we expanded into a newly refurbished 2,900 sq ft bespoke workshop (in the same office park).

Recent new features that we have rolled out include:

  • New sealed game prices in selling cart - 80,000 prices completed
  • Photo archive on the site of sold games - for example we have 1600 detailed photos of Metal Gear Solid PS1 here!
  • Intelligent Wishlist notification to allow you to specify what condition of game you would like

We have upgraded our machinery to repair up to 500 scratched discs per day but unfortunately we do not offer a disc repair service (apart from warranty repairs).
