Ever wanted to have your own custom Hard Drive where you pick the exact games you’d like to have in it? Maybe you don’t want to have a complete set of all ever released USA games or Japanese games on your HD, but you just want to customize it to your with, let’s say 1000 or 2000 selected games? Now you can!
This is our brand new service! Instead of picking complete sets of games for your favorite systems, pick the specific games you want! We will pick them for you, combine them with our RetroBat setup with 4 different themes, and put on a adequately sized hard drive!
This is how it works (Please Read!):
STEP 1. When buying the Custom Emulation Hard Drive from our website, you’ll pay a $100 non-refundable deposit for the service to start. We will send you the lists of all games we have available to be added to the drive for you to take a look or choose from: You will be able to pick from an universe of Arcade, Computer, Console and Handheld games from all systems from the Atari 2600 to the PS2. Don’t worry, the $100 deposit is taken from the final price of your order.
STEP 2. You return the lists to us with the games you want included on your drive. (The lists are all in text format, and you can just delete the names you don’t want and send them back to us with your final selection, it’s as easy as that!)
STEP 3. We will put together your choices with their boxart and preview videos for the front-end (if applicable), and calculate the size of the Hard Drive you’ll need to have to hold the collection. At this point, you can remove a few games to go down to a smaller hard drive, or add more games to “complete” the current drive you’ve got. This process can take anything from 2 to 5 days to be completed.
STEP 4. After the selection is complete, you’ll be charged for the rest of the order using the same method of payment used for the $100 deposit, or we can send you an invoice so you can pay from your end using a different card. The rest of the order is calculated according to the size for the Hard Drive needed. After the payment is complete, we will order a new drive and work on it to ship to you in 7 to 10 days max. Customers outside of the United States pay a $20 flat rate shipping fee. USA customers get free shipping.
All drives will come with RetroBat installed and all the games and systems will be fully setup to play on Windows 10, just one click away!

FAQ On The Custom Hard Drive
Q: So, I did a $100 payment to start the service, at the end I will have to pay the full hard drive price on top of it?
A: No. The $100 deposit is deducted from the final price of the Hard Drive, so, for example, if your final selection will require a 4TB External Hard Drive (a $249.95 product), you’ll only pay $149.95 to complete the order. If you are outside the USA, you’ll also pay an additional $20 Flat Rate shipping fee.
Q: I don’t want to go over all these game lists, can I pick just the systems I want and you add all games from it?
A: Yes, of course you can. Some smaller systems have games that are so tiny in size that you don’t want to go through the trouble into selecting them, such as Atari 2600 or Commodore 64, and you just want all the games, we can just add all of them, and you spend your time picking through the larger CD and DVD based games such as Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, etc.
Q: I made the $100 deposit and I decided I don’t want this anymore! I want my money back!
A: The $100 deposit in non-refundable. The moment we send you the lists to pick through and select games, we are already working on your Emulation project for you, so we will not refund any of the deposit, I am sorry.
Q: Can you send me a list of the stuff you’ve got, so I can take a look before I buy?
A: There is some amount of work related into even sending you these lists by e-mail, so if you want to get the ball rolling, please pay for the $100 deposit. We have complete sets for everything since the Atari 2600 up to the PS2 and the GameCube, so if you know what’s in these systems, you know what to expect.
Q: I want my collection on an internal SSD drive, can you do it?
A: Yes, if you want it on a SATA SSD, we can do it. We can quote you sizes before you order.
Q: why can’t I use a discount coupon on the final price of my purchase?
A: Due to the amount of work needed to put together an exclusive collection just for you, we can’t give any discounts on this product, we apologize.
Q: All your other drives can take anything from 30 to 60 days to ship, why does this one ships faster?
A: We update the game lists almost daily, with new games we download all the time, updated versions, etc. All those changes are incorporated into the Library and the “Full Collection” RetroBat drives, such as the Japanese 16TB RetroBat Drive. Because we promise the complete sets for these systems, sometimes we wait on the new revised sets to wrap-up the drive for shipment, and it might take some time. Also, emulators are updated constantly, and we try to have the latest versions included and that also breaks things every now and then. On the Custom Drive here, when you pick the games you want, that’s a definitive snapshot of the games that will go into the drive, and no changes are needed if new stuff comes up after the selection, so we move on to finish the drive to ship. Also, because we make the “custom” selection physically, we need to clear that space for the next one, so Custom drives end up taking preference on our job queue here.
