GameStop no Longer Accepting PS2 Trade-Ins Starting on June 1st, PS4, “Other New Platforms Expected This Fall”
Select GameStop locations had ceased trade-ins on PlayStation 2 systems, games, and accessories back in April, but now, thanks to Engadget contacting the company, it is now confirmed that starting on June 1st, they won’t be accepted in the United States as a whole.
You can read GameStop’s full comment on the matter below, where they also reveal that they’ll continue to sell PS2 products for a few more months:
We can confirm that as of June 1st we will no longer be accepting the PS2 console or its related product for trades. We know that the 12 year old system is a popular one and for many gamers, GameStop is the only place to find a great selection of its games. We will still offer a wide selection of the PS2 hardware, accessories and games in many of our stores and online for several months, based on remaining stock from trades.
We are very excited about the upcoming PS4 and are making room in our stores for it and other new platforms expected this fall.
