Book4Games FAQs

Who are you?

Our team is a happy bunch with a never-ending passion for retro video games and pop culture from the 80s and 90s who specializes in making custom display storage solutions for retro-gamers and video game collectors.

Our company was founded in the South of France in 2021 based on the observation that loose game cartridges are too often poorly stored in our gaming rooms. While loose games are often overlooked by most hardcore collectors, we believe they can still be the highlight of one’s collection. They’re much more affordable and remain original pieces of the Video Games History.

All our team members are working on their spare time as product designers, quality managers, web designers, content editor etc…
We truly consider ourselves as homebrewers in the niche retro video game accessories’ industry!

We are launching our new products through crowdfunding campaigns, so make sure you don’t miss them by subscribing to our newsletter!

Who is it intended for?

For anyone who owns old loose video game cartridges!
Our Precision Game Storage are for the people that are looking for convenient and dedicated products and don’t want their loose games too visible in their home, for those who like to tidy up their collection, or simply want to display their favorite cartridges in their gaming room shelves or glass cabinet. They are also the perfect gift for anyone into retro gaming!

I need these for [insert console name], when will it be available?

We’re a tiny company, R&D takes times and this is why our production is very limited. We expect to cover most popular retro systems in the future, but we cannot say when exactly, as it depends on too many factors. However, requests on our social networks for a specific system can surely help us prioritize which one we should cover first.

Do you offer wholesale?

While handling distribution in the European Union ourselves, we’re always looking for partners to bring our products closer to customers in :

  • North America
  • United Kingdom
  • Australia

Feel free to contact us if you are interested in distributing any of our products in your country.

Does the name Book4Games means we will only have 4 games in each one of your products?

While we understand why you may think that, the answer is no. We worked hard to design a universal format for our boxes that would fit in most people shelves (e.g. Ikea Kallax) and work with both big and small cartridges. This was done to give you that nice feeling of collection on your shelves.
The number of games is only limited to this format, meaning you will be able to store much more Game Boy cartridges than Nintendo 64 cartridges.

Why did you not make [insert feature] on your products ?

It’s nearly impossible to please everyone at 100%, but as retro gamers ourselves, we understand that every collection have different needs. We are constantly improving our products according to our customers’ remarks when it is possible.

All our design choices are made based on quality, cost efficiency, environmental reasons and industrial limitations. To put it simple, every feature, even the smallest ones, can add up to the retailing price.

Why not adding a sleeve for manuals?

Again, it’s a design choice motivated by the reasons mentioned earlier. We all have a few manuals laying around, but we mostly have loose cartridges without them. In some areas of the world, manuals can also be very thick because of all the different languages. It would have been impossible to predict what would fit or not.

I love your products but I think they are too expensive…

It really depends on what you are looking for. If you have hundreds of games, of course, you may want to rely on the other and cheaper solutions available around. Our products are intended to store and display your favorite or rarest games in a fully customized and dedicated product.

We only do small productions of a 100% custom and non-generic products, and we try to use the best materials available to us with the best value for money in mind.

In comparison, some other alternatives are not cheap for what they really are, while some others come at a certain cost as well (e.g. AES/MVS Shockboxes).

As a small business, we are also deeply impacted by the rising costs of raw materials, shipping and energy.
