GameStop to accept retro games and systems


If you’re hankering for some old video games and consoles, check out GameStop soon. The video game store announced that it will be launching a pilot trade-in and sales program starting on April 25th in New York City, NY, and Birmingham, Alabama, to test the market.

Gamestop will be accepting games, consoles and accessories for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), Super NES, SEGA Genesis, PlayStation (no word on PlayStation 2), Nintendo 64, and SEGA Dreamcast.

What’s the catch? GameStop won’t be shipping out the games to stores, instead it will be rolling out the games on their website, or they can be bought via its web in-store system which has been the company’s place for rarer items (like amiibo pre-orders and the original shipment of Majora’s Mask 3DS Systems).
