GameStop opens up sales for ‘retro classics’

NES, SNES, Genesis and more

GameStop has opened up a program that involves selling and taking in retro consoles games, including classic systems like the NES and Dreamcast. “Select stores” are actually taking the trades physically, but you can peruse their entire retro collection online right now.

Before people complain about GameStop price gouging, just know that they’re one outlet, and an option, not the only source. As a retro collector I’ve done some price comparisons, and a number of games, on the NES in particular, are fairly priced or cheaper than most major retailers online.
