The reliable game store
A few years back I was in need of a console. I had been watching a lot of reviews and had decided on getting the 1TB Xbox Series X, due to its raw power. Knowing gaming consoles are really popular in Nairobi, I decided to go looking for one in the Nairobi CBD. Shops in the CBD usually offer really competitive prices so I expected to find a console pretty quickly at a good price. But I was in for a rude awakening, all the gaming shops were selling PlayStation 4 Pros but none was selling Xbox’s. After about 2 hours of walking around the CBD I finally gave up and decided to try out Game Changer. Game Changer is located on the ground floor of Thika Road Mall right next to the entrance. Its not an easy shop to miss due to its uniquely designed exterior and big sign. Game Changer was my last option because I was aware of its exorbitant prices when it comes to consoles, games and game accessories. The variety of products in this shop is quite impressive, they not only sell consoles and games, but also all the gaming accessories you could possibly want from all the major brands. So, when I entered, I was pretty confident they would have an Xbox Series X available in their stock. I was not disappointed, they had it in stock at the capacity I wanted. However, as I expected the price was really high, almost double the MSRP. Other than Xbox’s and PlayStations the shop was also selling Nintendo Switches which are also really hard to find in Nairobi. Nintendo isn’t really popular in Nairobi, so most shops never stock their consoles. Despite the high prices, this shop is frankly among the best gaming shops in Nairobi, they stock all the consoles, games and gaming accessories you can imagine. And they only deal in original goods. I highly recommend this shop, if you can stomach the high prices.
