Inside a Video Game Market in Pakistan (Modchips & Piracy Special)

We explore Lahore’s most famous video game market where you can find everything including cheap second-hand consoles, repairmen, PlayStation 5, pirated games, and modchips. I grew up modding my PS1, Xbox, Xbox 360, and PS3 so this market really took me back to those days.

Why Don’t Indians Buy Gaming Consoles? (Video Game Market Tour ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ)

This console market is in the Palace Arcade under the Sunfort Hotel in Liberty Market, Lahore, Pakistan. There you’ll find 10-12 stores selling video game consoles, video games, accessories, and console repairmen. They sell all consoles including Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation. Next-gen consoles are available there, but for marked-up prices due to the global semi-conductor shortage.

Xbox Series X price: Rs. 115,000 PKR.
Playstation 5 price: Rs. 160,000 PKR.

If you want a cheap console, then the Sunfort Hotel market is also the place for you. The full array of previous-generation gaming consoles with modchips or software mods are available. Xbox 360, PS3, and are all available there for cheap rates. Xbox 360 and PS3 start at around Rs. 18,000 PKR. Pirated games are extremely cheap at Rs. 150 PKR per game. PC games are Rs. 70 PKR per DVD (but just bargain the seller down on games on many DVDs).
