Second-hand retailer CeX has launched a no fix no pay partnership with ‘cutting edge tech repair geeks’, to repair new and old gaming gear.

If your PlayStation 5 or Mega Drive console has gone bust, or is just collecting dust in your garage, gaming retailer CeX and repair company Tech Centre wants to offer you a solution.

That could come in handy for retro gamers especially, who, as our trip to the London Gaming Market proved, are still very much a thriving community.

The new repair scheme will cover both new and old consoles, handhelds, and controllers, and you only have to pay if the equipment is successfully fixed.

CeX works as a drop-off point for what needs fixing, while Tech Centre does the actual repairing.

If Tech Centre can’t fix your gaming equipment, then there is no fee to pay for the attempt. If a repair is successful, you pay for the fix but also get a two-year warranty with it.

The Tech Centre website claims it can fix your console, handheld, or controller in about seven days. Fees range from £26.99 for controllers to £39.99 to repair an original Game Boy and £99.99 to fix a PlayStation 5 console.
