GAMERS Are Gonna Love What Walmart Is Doing Now
(BlackMediaScoop) Starting March 26, Wal-Mart customers will be able to trade in their used video games for store credit, which can be applied for anything from electronics to groceries.
But this is the cool thing, this credit can be used both in Wal-Mart stores, and online. Wal-Mart will refurbish the video games and sell them as certified pre-owned games later this year, offline and online.
This move will help Wal-mart draw customers from the large but relatively stagnant console gaming community, and perhaps allow Wal-Mart to sell gamers other high-price electronics products like smartphones.
The move definitely threatens established video game retailers, both online and offline.
What do you think…good look for Walmart?
