GameStop Ending PS2 Trade-Ins Soon
Gamestop has confirmed that as of June 1st they will no longer accept PlayStation 2 hardware and software trade-ins. After June 1st Gamestop will continue to sell whatever PS2 inventory(hardware, software, and accessories) they have for ” several months” but that all depends on remaining inventory.
A GameStop Spokesperson released the following statement:
“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.”
This was expected to happen at some point especially after Sony announced earlier this year that they were ending production on PS2 hardware.
