Gamestop to pay more for used games

Written by David Stellmack

Will increase trade-in amount by 20%

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.

Independent retailers that we spoke with say that they are currently undecided on how they will respond to this move by Gamestop.
