Loot Crate has proven incredibly popular, and we've seen a number of services cashing in on the same formula, and encouraging customers to subscribe on a rolling monthly basis or prepay for a set time period in advance in exchange for monthly gift boxes, brimming with swag.
It was only a matter of time before someone decided to go time-travelling in the name of retro fans everywhere.
My Retro Game Box is a new initiative in the Loot Crate mould that will deliver a random selection of retro games on a monthly basisfor subscribers to keep. The supported formats include NES, SNES, N64, Game Boy, Game Boy Colour, GBA, SEGA Master System and SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis.
Prospective users can choose between PAL and NTSC packages, as well as specifying genre likes and dislikes, and the service will ship worldwide for $6 extra. Except in the UK, where delivery will be FREE!
Membership costs $35 on a month to month basis, $100 for three months, $190 for six months or $350 for a year. There's more information to be found on My Retro Game Box here: http://www.myretrogamebox.com/faqs/
