The Video Game Museum

The UK’s first official national video game archive has been launched in a bid to preserve the history of gaming.

The archive has been set up in partnership between Nottingham Trent University and the National Media Museum in Bradford in the north of England.

“We are going to be archiving video games but it’s not just about the games themselves, it’s also about gaming culture,” said James Newman, from Nottingham Trent University’s Centre for Contemporary Play, a research group dedicated to video games.

“We absolutely want to put the original hardware and software into the hands of players who haven’t seen this stuff”.

The collection will be officially opened at the GameCity Festival in Nottingham on 30 October.
