Yeah, I meant to entitle this forum topic as "Gamestop selling prices" and not trade-in values......my bad.

No, you're good!  I had no idea they were buying and selling old games.  Much appreciated.  I can't say I'd sell any, but might buy some.  If they ever show up here.  Well, not ET for $9999! 

they are only selling them online and not in the stores..... you trade them in at the stores then they go to a warehouse in Texas and then put up on the Gamestop website in 2 months.

Did you hear it through the grapevine?

GROAN! ;)

 

Grapevine is a suburb of Dallas.  Who's up for some Ocean's Eleven action?

 

Also, what is a Generic NES game?   Do I need to yank my labels off and replace them with plain black and white labeling?

But there's not one single "retro" title in that list.   This looks like their normal trade-in list.

Yeah, I just realized that. Maybe the next update might have the retro titles............
