They are a specialty retailer – they sell one thing & it is the best value for money entertainment you can buy.
As well as new consoles, accessories, tablets & hand-held gaming equipment, collectables, cards, toys and caps, EB Games also sells pre-owned games, with extra credits available for trading multiple games.
There are always lots of new games coming out, five years ago you would never have seen a grandmother buying a game for herself but now the store sees a dozen retirees a day. Hidden object games, Facebook games, Wii games and lots of others are popular with over 35 year olds. Gaming is no longer a kids’ activity.
But there are electronic activities available for even the youngest, with games designed to encourage reading and learning. For adult games, Australia has just got an R18 classification, allowing some games on to the local market for the first time. Whether you want AAA games like Halo, Diablo, Skyrim; Indie games like Minecraft; an X-Box One; Nintendo 3DS; PS Vita, a loot toy, tablet cover, PS4 console, a Super Mario Brothers t-shirt or a Wookie hat, look in EB Games.
The store, which opens seven days a week, also sells music and games gift cards.
