GameStop is reportedly going to begin reselling and accepting trade-ins of classic games and consoles such as the Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, and more.
Starting April 25, stores in the New York City and Birmingham areas will begin a “pilot sales and trade-in program” reports IGN. The stores participating in this preliminary program comprise about 250 locations, but a GameStop representative told the outlet if the program is successful they hope to introduce it nationally later in 2015.
“We will bring all of the product back through the Refurbishment Operations Center for inspection, testing and repair,” a GameStop representative told IGN. GameStop estimates about a two month period between when the company starts taking trade-ins and when customers can purchase these classic products. This gives the company ample “time to build up a good assortment for retro games fans to select from when shopping.”
Games and consoles will be available on GameStop’s website and will add “about 5,000” games to GameStop’s library.
Back in March GameStop announced that it would begin accepting trade-ins for the PS2 console.
