About Trippy Trades

Small Beginnings  

Trippy Trades is one of the fastest-growing and leading retro video games retailers in Australia. Established by two brothers and a childhood friend, we originally started from a garage as a part time hobby selling to local markets in and around Victoria.  

Video games have always been our passion, from an earlier age and have been playing them since the late 1990/the early 2000s. Firm favourites include classic games like The Simpsons Hit and Run, The Elder Scrolls Series and Uncharted 2 Among Thieves. 

Driven by a Sense of Nostalgia  

Like other gamers, we collected the titles that we had nostalgic feelings towards and realised that there was a whole market out there with others who shared that sense of nostalgia. No matter how good games get, you always remember the first games you played on the first consoles you owned.  

Even the earlier, less sophisticated games. Along with video games, we were fully immersed in that culture and started collecting Pokémon and sports trading cards. What started as a part-time hobby, became a full-time job and our collection and market grew and grew.  

What We Offer 

We offer it all. We buy, sell and trade video games. We know that many other businesses offer the same services and products, but we feel we stand out from the rest. The key things that help us stand out from the rest are our fair and reasonable prices that are competitively low compared to many of our rivals, along with our passion and drive to be the best and offer the best for our customers. 

Now at Trippy Trades, we have a large and constantly changing selection of not just video games and consoles, from Sega and Nintendo to Xbox and PlayStation, but a full range of accessories, figurines, trading cards and just about anything else that’s related.  

All the goods we stock are fully tested and come with a no questions asked, hassle-free 30-day warranty. Before we launched our website, we were already selling on eBay for many years and have maintained an enviable and excellent feedback score.  

Physical Store Now open! 

As we are gamers ourselves, we are not interested in short-changing anyone, which is why we can guarantee that our prices are fair. The success we have had over the years, first from selling locally in markets, then to eBay and eventually setting up the website, has meant that we have now secured a physical store in Reservoir, Victoria. This is something we are truly excited about.  

Our commitment has always been to our customers – to offer the best in terms of price, selection and service. Without our customers support, we would not have had the success we have had.
