After it was accidentally leaked last week, GameStop officially announced its new simplified trade policy today via press release. GameStop claims that the new trade in system will be simpler by using only a new four tiered trade system (according to the press release, the company’s previous system had ten tiers). Now the only factors affecting your trade will be whether or not you have a PowerUp Rewards membership and whether you want credit or cash. GameStop says this will increase the amount of credit paid out to customers, and that it now has over 100 titles that are worth $20 or more.

I wouldn’t say that trading in games at GameStop was complicated before, but it sounds like the retailer’s new system will be much easier, and it will be easier to find out how much a game is worth before heading into the store. I still don’t know if I will be jumping at the chance to give it my games for small amounts of credit, but I might be more prone to considering it now. What do you think of this new system? Think you will start trading in more games now? Let us know in the comments below!

    It’s a nice idea, as a customer-friendly trade-in policy will do them some good. But I’m just not the type to trade in games. Maybe it’s a luxury, but I like to keep my old systems and titles, either to play again or to be able to lend to friends and family.

    It’s a nice idea from GameStop, and I’ll continue to be their customer, but it won’t get me to trade games to them.
