Today retailer Toys R Us starts it’s new videogame trade-in program. Now gamers can sell their old games to the retailer for in-store credit.

Accepting games from the Atari 2600 to current generation consoles, the new trade-in program is unique by accepting games from all generations. All you need to have is the original game in its original packaging.

For the rest of the details, hit the jump.
According to Bill Lee, Vice President, Divisional Merchandise Manager, Toys”R”Us, U.S., “The video game trade-in program is another way we’re providing customers with additional value when they visit our stores. This program is designed to make the exchange process completely hassle-free for customers by accepting games from even the oldest systems, including the original Atari 2600 and 32-bit Sega Genesis.”

Hopefully this new trade-in program is a success. Personally, I am all for it. There are very few chain stores that sell vintage games, at least here in the States. Hopefully Toys R Us will will step into this role and provide gamers with an alternative to Ebay, at least when it comes to old school games.

  1. The bad news – you need the original packaging. How many Atari 2600 boxes do you still have? I have… ten, maybe? And that’s probably a lot more than most people that are forced to just pick up loose carts at flea markets.

    The good news – you can now get COMPLETE IN BOX Atari 2600 games at Toys ‘R’ Us! Too bad they’re all closing! :(

  2. Here is hoping I find Earthbound…in the box!

    Toys are always cool! Bet you had fun pynilag with some like a little one, well maybe you didn’t play with any of them. If you were my husband though you’d have played with them.When I take him anywhere there is toys in the aisles and it has horns, sound effects or flashing lights he can click on, he does.Boys will be boys even if they grow up to be men.
