GameStop to Cease Accepting PlayStation 2 Trades from 1st June

There's still time to get rid of your copy of The Simpsons: Hit and Run

GameStop will thump another nail into the now-defunct PlayStation 2's coffin on 1st June, as it ceases to accept trade-ins for the legendary console. Reddit user eGORapTure snapped the photograph embedded below, and Joystiq validated its authenticity with several North American stores. According to the image, the outlet will no longer accept games, accessories, and systems from the aforementioned date.

Sony stopped manufacturing its previous generation console in December 2012, ending a 12 year spell in the spotlight for the console. It’s not entirely clear whether GameStop will still dedicate some store space to the system, but if it doesn't, we suspect that it’s going to have a lot of copies of Madden NFL 2004 left to dispose of.

It took my GameStop a long time to finally get rid of the last of its Xbox, GBA, and Gamecube games.

My gamestop still sells PS2, Xbox, and GameCube games :P Not alot of them, but there still there in small supply, and when I see a classic game on PS2 for dirt cheap, I gotta pick it up! I got Kingdom Hearts a month ago for $3, so that was a great deal :)

At my Gamestop, they already stopped taking PS2's cause they had SOOOOO many of them lol

My PS2 died of a broken heart a month after I bought my PS3 in '07 heh. It's cool that people still have functional units!
