Walmart Competing with Gamestop in Used Games

Walmart has announced that they will be competing with GameStop. They will start accepting used video games for trade-in and will sell used games. Starting March 26th all Wal-Mart’s in the US will accept used games for gift cards or in-store credit at Sam’s Club and Walmart locations. You can also trade-in games online starting now.

Walmart will take a different approach on trading games, however. They will not implement the method of shelving games immediately after purchase. Walmart will send them to their warehouses for repackaging and resale in “Like-New” condition. While the flashy customer service aspect is nice, gamers should be concerned with how this  affects the price points of resale.
