- Voltage Video Games operates a video game store in downtown Syracuse NY. Our video game shop and company, are proudly Central NY (CNY) owned and operated and staffed by people who love video games as much as you do. We buy, sell and trade retro, new and used video games and a huge variety of accessories and game-related collectibles. For 6 Years (May 2014- Jan 2021) we also had a store in Manlius, NY next to Pavones Pizza but it has since closed.
What Makes Us Different
We try our hardest to have the best prices on both new, used and retro items– often undercutting MSRP and competitors alike. By offering market-rate pricing and reasonable trade values, avoiding online sales, and carrying hard-to-find accessories, we are bound to have items you won’t find easily elsewhere. Finally: As a local company, we offer the kind of friendly, personal and honest service which is often missing at our big-box competitors. It’s our goal to be your first stop for all your gaming needs.
More About Us
We cater to all types of gamers— so whether you’re a parent of a gamer, a FPS weekend warrior, a hardcore retro collector, playing Dark Souls or Angry Birds, on Sony, Nintendo or a Microsoft console, we will have games, advice or accessories for you! It probably goes without saying, but we not only sell, but we also buy and trade all types of video games, everything from retro systems like: the original Nintendo (NES), the SEGA Genesis and the Atari 2600, through to next-gen consoles such as: the Playstation 4, the Xbox One, the Wii U, the Vita and the 3DS. Give us a call for specifics on what kind of condition an item must be in or for a rough quote, or just bring your stuff in anytime we are open. We not only sell video games, systems and accessories, but we also carry a whole slew of extras, such as: plushies, sprites, board games, DVDs and Blu Rays, toys, keychains, magnets, game guides, and more!
Trade In Your Games and Accessories
- You can also sell or trade-in your used video games, video game consoles, DVDs, Accessories and more– whether its old or new, we will almost always make an offer. We won’t claim to always be the best, or beat all offers from anywhere, as it’s just not possible. We do however try our best to have fair everyday cash/credit trade values without all the marketing bravado. Because we specialize in games, we are often told we have better offers than elsewhere in town– many times, by a lot. *Generally*, our cash/credit offers are close to twice what Gamestop’s everyday offers on last gen games, and 10-30% more on next gen titles. Plus, remember our store credit goes further as we will almost always beat Gamestop’s regular pricing, and we make efforts to be competitive with online retailers like Amazon too. Get the online pricing, without the wait or problems! Feel free to give us a call for more information.
