GameStop no longer accepting PS2 tradeins as of June 1

Now that the PS2’s started taking steps toward retirement with Sony ceasing its production in Japan, it seems GameStop doesn’t plan to continue letting the console under its roof for long. According to a leaked in-store display posted to Reddit by eGORapTure, the gaming retailer will longer accept the over 12-year old system for trade-ins as of June 1st. Our friends at Joystiq contacted multiple stores confirm the news to confirm the news and many said the policy is indeed set to go into affect. Unsurprisingly, PS2-related accessories and titles will also be unwelcome when the date rolls around. We’ve reached out to GameStop’s corporate representatives for comment and will let you know what we hear back. For now, you can find the full picture of the display after the break and more info at the via and source links. Hey, gotta make room for those PS4 boxes — whatever they end looking like — somehow, right?
