Retro gaming multiplayer fun.


Grab your mates and team up to play on our multiplayer retro gaming consoles! We have two dedicated retro gaming stations at XP-VR with their own individual gaming consoles from 1990 onwards. Most retro console games support 2 players per game with a classical split screen setup.


The slightly newer consoles (Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360) that were released after the internet allow players to play together in games online of up to 4 players locally. 


Free to play.

Use of our retro gaming consoles is FREE with a food or drink purchase made in-store. Each purchase unlocks access for 1 player to enjoy 30 minutes of free retro gaming console play (i.e buy x2 drinks to unlock access for x2 players to play for 30 minutes).


Need more time or want to play with more more players? Re-fuel and purchase some more drinks and snacks to continue the retro gaming console fun! Unlimited free retro game console play is included for any customers on our Unlimited VR play pass package.


Why not blend old console technology with cutting edge new technology and add on a VR experience too?
