In a move that makes a bit of sense for the consumer, GameStop is revamping their trade-in system to give you more money for your games. In the past, the trade-in value was so low that you were almost better off throwing your games away instead of wasting gas to drive to the store and swap some games. This change affects different games differently, but in the end, it should put more value toward your next purchase - and that is never a bad thing.
The new system has been confirmed by GameStop's senior VP of pre-owned business Jason Cochran, and has a projected launch date of August 18. This isn't the only new business move that GameStop has made; just last week, it was revealed that GameStop was planning to introduce a high-interest credit card closely tied to its Power-Up Rewards program.
