PlayStation fans saw it coming. Following Sony's decision to end the production of its PlayStation 2 gaming console last year, here we are with some news that Gamestop will no longer accept PlayStation 2 trade-ins beginning June 1st. This rather sad news applies to PlayStation 2 games and and accessories as well.
The news came from a Reddit user named eGORapTure who posted a photo of the poster/ announcement online. Although GameStop has yet to release an official statement, Polygon is reporting that several stores have already implemented the plan, denying trade-in offers from PlayStation 2 users.

The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
