Gamestop to Offer Classic Game Hardware and Software Trade-in

Gamestop has announced a new experimental program for the trade in of classic gaming software and gaming hardware. Beginning on April 25th, gamers living in either New York City or Birmingham can go down to Gamestop to trade in older games and consoles all the way back to the NES era. Gamestop will then refurbish this product and place it back on sale roughly 2 months afterward. If this trial program is a success, then Gamestop will roll out the program to its remaining stores later this year. A Gamestop representative commented┬áthat this program will bring the total number of games available for purchase from Gamestop to “about 5000.”

Would you be willing to trade in any of your older games to Gamestop? Would you be looking to purchase any retro hardware or software from the company? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
