GameStop Overhauling Used Game Program
Filed under: GAMESTOP

One of the biggest complaints I've heard about GameStop's used game program is how little they give for games compared to how much they turn around and sell them for. Yes, it's all about buy low/sell high, but sometimes the differences between them is flat out ridiculous. GameStop actually wants to change that.

They are going to adopt a new trade-in system, one that will offer a flat rate for games, with the only variances depending upon the customer wanting cash or store credit and if the customer is a member of their Power-Up Rewards program. GameStop is also bumping up their flat rate average by 20%. With their current system, you can only get the most money if you put the trade-in toward a new game or a subscription to Game Informer.

The company's current plan is to implement this new trade-in system this month, by August 18th.

It's nice, I suppose.

(I stopped caring about Gamestop when they stopped carrying PC games.)

I rarely go into a Gamestop anymore. Last I went in was a few months ago to pick up a Wiimote for my Wii U as it's the only console I feel that makes the most sense in having alongside a PC.

If I do happen to walk in, I'd usually check out for PS2 games IF they have them. Emulation. Very nice to have around, honestly.

Yeah. I stopped really giving a fuck about them when they stopped carrying PC games, and when I realized that the only way to get ... pretty much _anything_ in there was to preorder it. They only brought in Triple-A titles, and those tended to sell out fast; and they didn't even bother with smaller or niche titles. If I'm going to preorder something, I might as well get it sent to my house.
