[GamerTell] GameStop's Retro Classics shop is surprisingly fair

GameStop NESGameStop has finally opened the doors to its Retro Classics storefront, a new addition dedicated to such fossils as the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Genesis. The shop was first revealed in April 2015 (just after GameStop began offering $25 for used PS2s) and will be primarily online, at least for now. Brick-and-mortar testing will be conducted in select markets, and if all goes well, GameStop will expand the service and, presumably, begin adding more games.

But even now, the online retro archive is a sizeable one. GameStop currently supports the NES, Sega Genesis, SNES, N64, PlayStation and Sega Dreamcast, which have just over 400 games between them. Naturally, all retro products are refurbished, and the systems themselves are only available in select stores. More importantly, the vast majority of games are available for bargain prices. How this is reflected in trade-ins remains to be seen.
