Toys R Us, which has been testing a used game initiative in select markets, is rolling the program out nationwide, letting gamers exchange their old titles for in-store credit.
It's the first big box/brick and mortar company to expand the program nationwide, competing with GameStop on a head to head level. (Best Buy, Wal-Mart and others are also conducting pilot programs at select stores – and Amazon.com is encouraging game trade-ins to all of its users.)
Toys R Us is being a bit more open than other companies in what it will accept. The retailer says it will take games from more than 25 systems, including all current models and game machines as far back as the Atari 2600 and Intellivision. They simply have to be in their original cases, with original artwork and in working order.
