    Gamestop Ceo wants to sell vintage games!

    I would too see poke'mon. Do you like this idea, guys?

    http://www.complex.com/video-games/2...-vintage-games
    Every time Gamestop removes another aged system's games from its shelves, we die a little bit inside. Not that older games are particularly cheap at the stores, but it's often better than shopping on eBay.

    Now Gamestop CEO Paul Raines has revealed to Polygon in an interview at the first ever Gamestop Expo that the company is considering selling "vintage" games on their website. Apparently when old PS1 and N64 games go off the market at Gamestop, they don't just get thrown away.

    "We've got them," Raines said. We're picturing a warehouse like in Raiders of the Lost Ark. "We think there's a vintage sales opportunity, so we're accumulating some inventory. It's a big idea, and there's a few problems with it. The first one is sourcing the product, the condition, the refurbishment, all that stuff. But there's a customer for it. And we're working on some stuff we haven't announced yet.

    "If you go to eBay and look at all of the gaming stuff that's on there, it's unbelievable. Collector's stuff. We've got to be in that business. We will be."

    He wants to make Gamestop cool again, apparently: "We've got to be a destination for gamers where, for cool stuff for gaming, you've got to go to Gamestop," he said.

    If Gamestop can sell SNES games at a decent price, then we're all for it. When was the last time you saw Super Mario World at a swap meet or local game shop for under $20? What do you think of Gamestop going vintage? Tell us in the comments or on Twitter.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    This is good because I don't have to go to those over-priced retro game shops. I hope this kicks them out of business.

    The local play N trade by my house sells retro consoles that play NES, SNES, and Genesis games they also sell original cartridges as well. The console go for about 40 bucks give or take. I've seen the games range from 5 to 15 bucks

    We already have Vintage Stock for all of our vintage games. Gamestop needs to just stick with current games.

    Oh ok I don't have on of those near me just play N trade they sell new games and accessories however they don't sell new consoles just retro consoles and games. I usually go there and check out what they have they are usually cheaper than gamestop. Also they have a good selection of gamecube games and used accessories.

    As a person who works in video games sales, I think this could be a BIG hit. There is a HUGE market for Retro games, shirts, and other merchandise. But it would sell better in stores than online but customer HAVE to know that you sell it otherwise they would never come to GameStop looking for retro because GameStop is known for current gen.

    Its better in terms of distribution cost for them to sell them online..then taking shelf space from new games.

    LOL no one. As long as you got the internet there's really no reason. On the same not people pay a lot for brazzers, wicked, and others sites. They have some really good stuff there, man.

    I wouldn't say addicted. I would say addicted is when your at work and your hands start shaking to the point where you have to get up and find a bathroom to knock off some unwanted children. There's way too much free porn in this world for me. There was a goverment person who spent thousands in porn!
