FAQ

What's the deal here?

WHAT EXACTLY IS THIS?

Game the Systems is a video game store and e-Sports lounge. We not only buy and sell new and used games but we have a variety of systems set up so you can play any new or used game without buying it. You can also play with up to 7 friends to compete or pass the time!

WHAT SYSTEMS DO YOU HAVE?

We have all the newest systems in the highest quality possible (Switch, PS4 Pro, XBox One X) as well as updated clone and soft-modded older systems such as Analogue Super NT and Analogue SG, or an N64 with HDMI and upscaling. We have ultra-low latency 4K gaming monitors for each station as well as an OLED 4K streaming station for all the newest and hottest games.

Through our trade-in program we will also seek to add as many games as the store can fit.

HOW DO I PLAY?

You can redeem GameTime credits to play any available game for any available system. Not only that, but GameTime credits unlock the system for up to 7 players! And, if each person brings their own controller they play FOR FREE!

But, what if nobody has a controller? The first controller rental for a system is FREE, and each additional controller is only $5 for the day! That means if you switch consoles everybody switches controllers for free as well!

WHAT ARE GAMETIME AND DOUBLETIME?

GameTime is credit for playing a system at the store. You can use it to enter events and tournaments or you can accumulate it by interacting with our store.


1 GameTime credit = 1 minute of play

DoubleTime is just GameTime that allows for twice the time per credit.

Your GameTime will automatically convert to DoubleTime if you play an older system, play a game you purchased at our store, or pick a game that was released within the last week.

CAN YOU GET DISCOUNTS ON GAMETIME?

Yes!

By purchasing at least $20 worth of GameTime you earn bonus credits. The more you buy the more bonus credits you get!

WHAT WILL EARN ME FREE GAMETIME?

Free GameTime is easy to earn:

- Sign up for the e-mail list
- Follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Twitch, and Reddit)

- Attend any event with a door fee

- Buy or sell any game in the store

WHAT DO I GET FOR BUYING A GAME?

Game the Systems is proud to offer the best deals possible for the newest and hottest games. When you pre-order or buy a new game from our store you automatically earn 120 credits of GameTime! That's 2 hours of play for you and up to 7 friends just for buying the game!

If you buy a used game you get 1 credit for each dollar the game cost. For example, if the game cost $30 you would earn 30 GameTime credits.

Not only that but if you purchase a new game from our store and sell it back to us within 30 days you will receive the game's FULL VALUE in GameTime credit. That means a $60 game will earn 400 GameTime credits, worth 6 hours and 40 minutes of play! 

CAN I SELL YOU MY GAMES?

Yes! We only offer trade credit but we try to keep our used prices as low as we can.


As a rule of thumb, find what GameStop or a comparable big box store would charge, take $5-10 off the price, and divide by 2 to get the value of your trade-in. If the game would be $30 on Amazon, it will be $25 in the store and you will earn $12.50 in trade credit.

However, we offer big bonuses for customers who trade-in for GameTime! If you trade in your game you get FULL CREDIT in GameTime! That means if it would cost $30 to buy your game you get $30 worth of GameTime! That's 210 credits of GameTime worth 3 1/2 hours of playing for you and up to 7 friends!
