GizmoFusion.com says: We have to go with this as a rumor for now, but in light of whats going on with Sony and their PSN Network issues, we thought it would be best to put it out there in case anyone was looking to trade in their PS3 anytime soon. According to an email we received it would appear that at least one local Gamestop is not taking anymore trade-in’s of Sony’s Playstation 3 console, as they were overwhelmed. The email came from a fan of the site, who had enough of the issues, and wanted to trade in his/her PS3 for an Xbox 360. The manager in the store said they were not taking anymore as trade-in’s and to check back in a day or two.
Again, this is obviously not a company wide policy right now, but could be a decision made by local management. When we hear more we will be certain to update you with any relevant information.
