Looks like the retro game pilot program GameStop had going on at a few select stores was successful, as you can now go into any GameStop and trade in your retro games, systems, and controllers. Just don’t expect to make a ton of money, but I’m sure you already know that. We are talking about GameStop after all.
I’m hard on GameStop at times, but deep down inside, I do like them. I especially like my local GameStop where the associates there are affable, however, I don’t take advantage of GameStop’s trade-in program, because it does feel like I’m getting ripped off, and to be quite frank, their retro trade-ins and the pricing for much of the hardware and software available seems bit off a rip-off as well.
However, if you’re into retro-gaming, and money is no object, or you’re will to pay a premium for convenience, or you want that piece of mind that what your buying is going to work, you now have another option available.
