During January's sojourn to Kotaku headquarters in NYC, I stopped by the fabled Video Games New York , where I picked up a scratched but serviceable PlayStation 2 for $80. Today GameStop announced it is once again accepting trade-ins of the best-selling game system of all time. My timing sucks.

A Video Game Has Launched A Service Called Killstagram

If my most anticipated big-budget video game this year is Bloodborne, my most anticipated indie video game might be Superhot. As part of an alpha version of the time manipulation shooter going out to backers, Killstagram is also a thing now. Admit it: it's a clever name.

GameStop is accepting used PS2s for trade-in again

Almost two years after saying they'd no longer take used PlayStation 2s for trade, GameStop is once again accepting them.

GameStop had stopped accepting the systems and games for trade on June 1, 2013, about six months after Sony ended production of the console. But in a news release sent this morning, the games retailer said it's back on — but trade-ins will be for store credit only.

A PlayStation 2 with a power cable, controller and A/V cable will get $25 store credit. A console...
