GameStop Stores Now Allowed To Sell Retro Video Games

Confirmed by a store employee over on the GameStop subreddit, the company are now allowing locations to sell retro video game titles. Up until recently, stores could accept retro titles as trade-in, but were required to ship all of them to their warehouse in Texas.

Other employees have also chimed in and said this could be a decision made by their District Managers if they are allowed to sell them in specific stores. Others have noted they already don’t have shelf space to add any more stuff.

GameStop entered the retro game market back in 2015, but it seemingly went in a hiatus after many items showed to not be in stock on their official website. The program also saw major issues including a former corporate manager revealing there was not venting on if a game was counterfeit or not. The next month, another insider revealed that GameStop told employees to throw out cases for DS titles and literally destroy games with hammers.
