Toys R Us trialling pre-owned

Ben Parfitt
US retail giant Toys R Us has become the latest High Street retailer to test out the pre-owned game waters with the news that it is trialling a second hand scheme in some of its North American stores.

A spokesperson for the company confirmed to Joystiq that it’s testing the market in “a couple of its New York” stores, though refused to give any details on the exact stores, or the nature of its pre-owned plans.

Those wishing to buy pre-owned games on the UK High Street are spoilt for choice at the moment, with the likes of GAME, Gamestation, Blockbuster, CEX, HMV and the nation’s network of indies offering a strong selection. It’s the same online, too, with Play and Amazon championing their pre-owned offerings.

There’s no word yet if similar plans are in place for the UK or Europe.
