Cooling Upgrades Near Completion

We are tweaking our latest cooling upgrades for the Summer.  We are direct venting heat from all of our computers through the roof.  We are still tweaking this setup, but we expect it to help our cooling on the 100 degree days.

We can fix any controller we can get the parts for.  We do all repairs in house. Our most common current repairs include Nintendo Switch Joycons,  Xbox One regular and Elite controllers, and PS4 controllers.  We also fix 360 controllers, PS3 controllers, and we can fix older controllers as well as joysticks or fight sticks.  We accept drop offs in store for repair, or you can mail in your controller for repair.  

Once you buy the repair then simply ship it in to us at Game Republik 3915 Guadalupe St Austin, TX 78751.  Be sure to include a piece of paper with your name, email, telephone number, and a thorough description of your controllers problem.  Yes, you can send more than one controller at a time.  If you have large quantities then talk to us about a discount. Please click below on the controller you have to purchase a repair for mail in, and then send it our way.  We recommend USPS first class package or 2 day priority mail.  If you have any questions please call us at 512.459.2244 or contact us on Facebook or Twitter.

Xbox One Controller Repair $30 

Xbox One Elite Controller Repair $50-60 V2 $50-$70

Playstation 4 Controller Repair $30

Nintendo Switch Joycons $25

Nintendo Switch Lite Joycons Left $60 right $80


This is a batch of repairs we did with various issues.  By far drifting is the most common problem.

A closer view of a couple of our repairs. 


The new Xbox One Elite controller version 2 is already coming through our shop, and we can repair most issues. Drift and bumpers are the usual problems. 

We are getting more and more Xbox One controllers in for repair.  We can fix almost anything from bad sticks to buttons.  Most repairs are around $30.

Xbox One Gaming Is Here!

So we waited a while to jump on the Xbox One bandwagon.  More precisely we waited until the Halo 5 beta.  So the beta came and went, and we now have Xbox Ones available for play in the blue room.  Games include Assassin's Creed Unity/Black Flag, Minecraft, Forza 2, Sunset Overdrive, Titanfall, and UFC.  Stay tuned for more titles we will add.  This means we are one of the few gaming centers around much less in Austin that have PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Wii U gaming!



For those of you who have been asking we are in the midst of setting up our new Wii U with Smash Brothers!  We have the GameCube adapter, and 4 controllers!  We are likely adding Mario Kart as well.  Projector or TV? We are not sure yet there.

New Years Eve All Nighter!

Our New Years Eve all nighter is almost here!  It starts at 10PM Wednesday night, and finishes at 10AM Thursday morning.  Cost is $30 for our PCs and game consoles, or $15 if you bring your own computer.  BYOC spots are limited.  We will have some food on hand likely in pizza form.  If we fill up we will spring for donuts for everyone as is our tradition.  Halo 5 beta should be active on our Xbox Ones just in time for the event. We also will have Xbox 360, Playstation 4, and of course 20 gaming PCs.  There are no age restrictions, and it is BYOB for those of age.  If you have any questions give us a call, or post to our Facebook event page here.  Happy New Year!

Your Source For Controller Repairs

Game Republik is your source in Austin for game controller repairs. We have recently been on a tear for Xbox 360 controller repairs, but we also fix controllers for Playstation 3 and 4, Xbox One, Wii U, and Wii U game pads.  Don't forget fight sticks as we can fix those as well so long as we can find the parts.  Most controller repairs are between $20 and $30.  Joystick repairs depend fully on part cost, as do Wii U gamepad repairs which range between $40 and $80. Either way they are much cheaper than new sticks and gamepads.  Check out some of our repairs from the past week.

We fixed the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 controller for a client, and this Halo 4 controller we repaired for sale so you can pick it up now if you like.


The Halo 4 controller has the unique white PCB which really makes it stand out with the see through shell.


Lastly we have a classic black Xbox 360 controller that needed a new stick.  Once repaired they are just like new again!
