Gamestop has announced that they will be once again accepting trade-ins for the PlayStation 2, several years after its sale and trade was discontinued by the retailer.
In an announcement made online, Gamestop will again accept PlayStation 2 consoles for trade-in. Stores will be giving $25 in store credit for the console along with the power cable, AV/cable, and one controller. If any of these accessories are missing then the store will only pay $20 for the console.
However the retailer will not be accepting PlayStation 2 games as part of the trade-in.
The announcement has been meet with mixed reactions among gamers who are either unwilling to sell a part of their childhood for $20 or have noted that better offers can be made via online. There is still a strong demand for the console and iconic titles among gamers.
