GameStop had announced earlier this year that they would begin to start accepting trade ins or retro games and consoles with a test in the New York and and Birmingham area but now the plan has rolled out nation wide. This system seems to work not on the basis of local store but instead that you can purchase these consoles and games online and have them delivered to you.

The current line up includes games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, the SEGA Genesis, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, the Nintendo 64, the PlayStation and the Dreamcast. You are even able to purchase these consoles at a good price with consoles such as the PlayStation costing only $40, and with all of the games ranging between $5 for some of the more common titles to $90 for more sought after games like Suikoden II or Tales of Destiny II. If you’ve been waiting for a good time to sort out some back catalog that you’re been waiting for that aren’t on any digital service currently then this may be your best chance. It is worth noting that all of these games are in a pre-owned state but are all in full working order.

If you’re maybe not in the market for any of these classic games or systems but instead have a whole lot lying around that you’ve been meaning to get rid of then you’ll be happy to know that GameStop is accepting trade ins assuming that the product is in working order that can help you put some money towards your next GameStop purchase.

What do you think of GameStop now reselling retro consoles and games? Would you like to see their range of consoles expanded to retro handhelds as well? Is there any retro game that you plan to pick up or even recommend to someone to get now that it’s available?

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
