7-Eleven will start selling pre-owned games under a new program named 'Great Games Below $20' in a new partnership with Game Trading Partners, Inc.
Games will be available on various platforms at a cost of $19.99 or less. The 3,000+ stores represent half of the U.S. stores operated and franchised by 7-Eleven.
7-Eleven category manager for gaming and electronics Michael Jester said, "More than 60% of U.S. households now have at least one video game console, and consumers are searching for convenient ways to stretch their entertainment dollar in this challenging economy".
President and CEO of Game Trading Technologies Todd Hays also commented on the news saying that all 7-Eleven stores in the U.S. could participate in the program and, "we hope to have most U.S. stores on board by September".
