After trialing a few different schemes, Walmart has finally decided to start selling used games throughout its many stores. Only time will tell if this service will be worth it, but I don’t think that the major game retailers will be too pleased at losing more revenue to used game services.
To check out further conditions and news about the scheme, just hit the jump.
One interesting limitation of this scheme is that Walmart will not be accepting any games as trade-ins. Whether they’re buying used games cheaply from other retailers or simply sourcing their used games from other store chains they own, it will be interesting to see how well they can pull it off.
Lastly, this service will apply to all the major consoles, including the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, Microsoft Xbox360, PC and Sony Playstation 3 games. There is no word yet if the older generations such as the Playstation 2 and original Xbox will also be supported.
