Gamestop to pay more for used games

Will increase trade-in amount by 20%

Gamestop is going to start paying more for trade-ins according to documents obtained by Kotaku. While most of you are going to say that it is about time, the reason from where Gamestop sits is apparently that they are not getting as many trade-ins, so they want to encourage folks to trade-in their completed titles.

While they will be giving 20% more on trade-ins, they will still be giving less for cash.
