GameStop Gets Competition From Best Buy
Grapevine-based videogame retailer GameStop has some new competition today, after retailer Best Buy announced that it is getting into used videogames yesterday. Best Buy said that it is launching a used games program, including a trade in program, at close to 600 Best Buy stores this week. According to Best Buy, it will give customers the ability to sell their pre-owned videogames at the store. As part of the push, Best Buy also said it would give customers a $20 Best Buy Gift Card for trading in games on a list of about 100 popular titles. Best Buy did not say when it will start offering up pre-owned games for sale, but said it would soon.
