So long, old friend

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.
