Walmart will soon introduce a new game trade-in program in the coming week for gamers to trade-in anything their heart desires in exchange for anything in the store.

Across 3,100 stores in the USA the new trade-in feature will not be eligible for a cash trade option. When asked directly about this during the announcement conference call, Executive Duncan Mac Naughton said,

The major retail giant will not take video game systems on trade as of this time. Interesting news to say the least.
