Looks Like GameStop Won’t be Accepting Trade-Ins on PlayStation 2 Systems and Games Starting Next Month
After nearly thirteen years on the market, the PlayStation 2′s production was discontinued and its successor’s successor, the PlayStation 4 was announced, essentially signifying the end of the console.
Today, thanks to a user on NeoGaf who spotted this, GameStop has posted the following sign at one of their stores, giving us another dagger:
While it doesn’t specifically say that every GameStop store in the United States will be a part of this, it’s safe to assume that this isn’t an isolated occurrence and will likely spread to other locations. It is worth noting that around the exact same time last year, the GameCube received a similar fate.
In any case, we reached out to GameStop for clarification on this matter and we’ll let you know if we hear anything back.
If you do have some PS2 games, systems, and accessories you’d like to trade in for $.10 – $.50 though, we suggest doing that before April 1st so as not to take any chances. Or, just hold onto everything as a reminder of how awesome the PlayStation 2 is.
Are you going to bother trading any of your PS2 stuff in? Let us know in the comments below.
