Looks like your friendly neighborhood GameStop will no longer be accepting your last-gen Nintendo merchandise. Following a similar move in 2009 for the original Xbox, the retailer will be suspending their trade-in programs for GameCube games, systems, and accessories beginning April 2, 2012.

Considering the fact that I acquired a large part of my beloved GCN collection from bargain bins, the move is saddening though far from unexpected. With the recent launch of the PS Vita and the Wii U looming on the horizon it makes sense that GameStop is looking to clear up some shelf space. That said, if you have a copy of Bad Boys: Miami Takedown or something similarly terrible you want to get rid of, you best do it soon.
