If you're in need of cash, trading in stuff for credit doesn't do you any good.

However, you can now take advantage of GameStop's new limited-time promotion entitled "Cash for Games."

Between now and July 26, the retailer will pay more for select items, including popular PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U games. If you're willing to hand over your PS4, they'll give you $200 in cold hard cash for the system. For the record, that's normally the trade-in value; the standard cash value is $160. Essentially, they'll give you the normal trade-in value in cash for certain items.

GameStop says this is "quite appealing to many gamers that are looking for some extra cash this summer." Top-tier titles like Grand Theft Auto V and Batman: Arkham Knight are worth $30 in cash as well, so here's your chance to put some extra dinero in your pocket.

To learn more, visit GameStop's trade-in website .

Who the hell in there right mind would sell their ps4 for $160-$200 and then let gamestop resell your system for $359?

You're "paying" for not having to deal with the burden of selling the system yourself. That is having to make it public, waiting for people to contact you, meeting with them, hope that they won't haggle you into half the price/back out of the transaction. But mostly the waiting part. That, and they're in the business of making money.

You definitely wouldn't have to wait long with such a good price.

Do people actually back out?

yeah i guess that would work for someone who either doesn't want their console anymore or who deosn't "collect games" like just straight trades them in when they are done with them so they don't end up with a massive library of games on the shelve cos i know alot of people are like that. and i know a few people who don't shelve a whole lof of games at anyone time like i would cos thats just how i've always done things.

but this doesn't really appeal to me but hey its there if you want it i guess which goes to the old saying of better have it(there) and not want it than want it(there) and not have it.

happy gaming

They want people to get rid of their PS4's to push Xbox One!

Maybe I'll hand over my PS4 cuz I think it's gonna die soon. Then put it toward a new one.
