GameStop Offering Store Credit For Used iPhones, iPads and iPods

GameStop announced that they’re now accepting old iPod, iPhone and iPad devices in exchange for in-store credit. There is also a rumor that they will be carrying new Apple mobile devices and accessories in the future.

This is great news for gamers who would like to trade-in their old Apple devices for games, but I guess it depends on what they’re offering. How much store credit does an iPad nab you? And what good is trading your old device if they’re not offering new ones for you to upgrade? GameStop is obviously hoping to cash-in on the launch of the iPhone 5 by offering people credit for their old iPhones, but how many people will want to trade their iPhone 4 for Call of Duty? I would imagine if you’re going to ditch your used iPhone it would be for a new one, not to get a new video game.
