As BitLounger’s main goal is to simultaneously protect and display retro games, most of the products that we launch are introduced with those goals in mind. Earlier this year we launched our first CartVault with support for loose NES carts, and received a number of requests for protecting cartridge boxes.
You spoke, and we listened! We now have Cartvaults that support game boxes for Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64.
We are off to a great start on Kickstarter after our Classic Game Fest appearance this past weekend. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by our booth to check out the BitLounger XL. We had a great time meeting so many awesome gamers and getting their feedback and first impressions. It was a humbling experience watching so many people get excited about our product, and having numerous show attendees bringing their friends by to check out the system. Needless to say, we’ve got just over 3 weeks left to reach our funding goal and are roughly 30% there!

Dallas, T.X., July 24, 2017 – BitLounger, maker of the world’s highest quality retro video game storage solutions, today announces the launch of a new model to its lineup of storage trays with the BitLounger L & BitLounger XL Storage System. The new line of products introduces flexibility and modern styling unparalleled in the industry to date.
Protecting Your Memories
BitLounger’s newest models include initial support for 7 different systems: the original Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Famicom, GameBoy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance & Nintendo 64, with additional systems planned for support in 2018. With the BitLounger L and BitLounger XL having 2 and 4 insert tray slots, respectively, the BitLounger XL will launch with over 2,400 different game capacity combinations in the larger unit.
Each insert tray is completely removable and swappable, allowing the user to adjust the their storing preferences over time. An included 1/4″ translucent dustcover protects the games from the elements while concurrently allowing the user to view the contents. Neoprene lines the interior of each tray slot, protecting the bottom of each cartridge from wear and tear. Similarly to the previously released 16BITSN, the XL model is made from a high grade acrylic molded for a perfect fit and finish. The BitLounger XL’s dimensions have been painstakingly designed to work seamlessly in conjunction with IKEA Expedit and Kallax storage shelving units for a snug, yet appropriate fit.
Starting today, the BitLounger XL Kickstarter (see: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2033311797/bitlounger-l-and-xl-storage-system) allows backers to become among the first to reserve their unit. Customers will be able to choose between the BitLounger L and BitLounger XL system to suit their capacity needs. Each base unit will come standard with the customer’s choice of 2 or 4 removable custom trays and additional or replacement trays will be made available for sale after crowdfunded backer rewards have been filled, with a scheduled shipment of December 2017.

It’s only fitting that Nintendo would reveal details (albeit few) on their new system the day that we wrap up our Kickstarter. Coincidence? Actually, yes… Congrats to Nintendo on the Switch, it looks like a promising system.
For those who missed out on our Kickstarter project we do have pre-order available on our website, http://bitlounger.com/product/bitlounger-16bitsn/. You can use code: FREESHIPKS for free domestic shipping through 11/30/2016. We plan on adding multi-packs shortly. If that is something you are interested in and do not see please let us know and we will promptly update for you.
Mass production shipping has also been confirmed and it looks like we should be able to fill our backer pledges around the 28th or 29th of November. We’ve got everything ready to go and are just awaiting our shipment, so luckily we’re in the home stretch and right on target for everything we outlined in our campaign. With that in mind please stay tuned: we have another great project lined up and we know you are going to love it.
After 1 full day into our Kickstarter campaign we were able to get 41% funded! With 28 days left we are incredibly confident we’ll be able to cross the finish line where we need to be. We’ve reached out to numerous blogs and retail sites that we’ve bought from and/or followed in the past and have received tremendous coverage and support in raising awareness. It’s clear there’s a need for a premium retro video game storage solution. We’ll keep you posted as we progress with packaging designs and new information.
