GameStop to Start Carrying Retro Consoles and Games

It seems retro gaming has finally become mainstream, and you will have another source of overpriced retro-goods other than eBay! GameStop is planning to launch a new pilot program for classic consoles, games, and accessories starting April 25. Stores in its NYC and Birmingham markets, which comprise around 250 store locations, will play host to the program.

The systems and accessories that you will be able to trade-in and purchase include the NES, Super NES, SEGA Genesis, PlayStation, N64, and SEGA Dreamcast. This will increase the number of games GameStop offers either for sale or to purchase by “about 5000.”

It was also stated that you will be able to buy the retro games only via the company’s webstore.
