PlayStation 4 (PS4) won't be out until the holidays, but GameStop isn't wasting any time: as of June 1, the video game chain will no longer accept game or equipment trade-ins from Playstation 2 (PS2) consoles.
Crave's CinemaBlend website posted the new information Monday including a public notice from one GameStop.
Crave obtained the following statement from GameStop:
“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.”
Although IF you are still rocking the PS2, you might want to get any money you can now. They aren't getting more valuable.
