Wal-Mart Testing New Game Buy-Back Machines

by Jeff McKinney

Back in March we mentioned a few new ideas for what to do with your used video games and now it seems that a new option is entering the market. Wal-Mart and Ohio-based kiosk operator e-Play, are currently testing a new vending machine that will allow you to trade-in used games.

Simply take your used games to one of the e-Play videogame trade-in machines and scan the barcode on the box, which will locate the game title and current worth. If you choose to sell that game, the machine will take it, check for damage and as long as it is in good condition, pay you for the game by putting money on a credit or debit card.

The machines are currently being tested in select stores in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. I haven’t seen one yet but as a sucker for gadgetty goodness, I’ll do my best to locate one of these machines and test it out. Stay tuned for results.
