During January’s sojourn to Kotaku headquarters in NYC, I stopped by the fabled Video Games New York, where I picked up a scratched but serviceable PlayStation 2 for $US80. Today GameStop announced it is once again accepting trade-ins of the best-selling game system of all time. My timing sucks.
US video game retailer GameStop officially gets into the Apple business today with the launch of its long-rumoured iPhone, iPad and iPod trade-in program. How much will they pay for your old Apple crap?
It sounds like a U.N. relief program for starving gamers, but it’s not. The U.K. supermarket chain Tesco has expanded a pilot used-games trade-in to 60 stores. Store credit can be used for anything, food included.
