With a catalogue of over a million DVDs, movies, games and many other entertainment products, Mighty Ape is a top choice for Aussies shopping online.
Mighty Ape's origins can be traced back to 1993 when Simon Barton opened a small, Amiga-focused games store called Micro-World in the New Zealand city of Auckland. With the death of the Amiga, the store shifted focus to the broader video games market, rebranding under the name GameZone. From there, the retailer moved into the online space with its web-based GamePlanet Store and eventually it shuttered its physical stores completely to concentrate on its web store.
In 2008, after adding DVDs, toys and books to its online catalogue, the website took on the new name Mighty Ape and expanded its coverage to the whole of Australia.
