    Gamecube is officially a collector's system, according to Gamestop.

    Gamestop has officially announced that they wont accept more Gamecube consoles, games and accessories trade-ins starting on April 2, according to a banner located in the retailers trade-ins US webpage and similar signs in stores.

    But don't panic, Gamestop will continue selling all the remaining Gamecube stock as they normally do when they stopped accepting the trade-in of other console systems.

    at a guess the clue is in your username:D since its only now with the family edition and the upcoming wii u that they no longer play on current systems or provide an painless future upgrade for those on the lowest incomes.

    so the question is what do they do with all the games/systems?
    so they just toss them? If so please give them to me for free. ill pay all the shipping for teh truck load. It wouldnt put it past me if they tosed them. Noobstop used to toss out nes/snes/gen boxes and manuals when they got a trade in back in 2002
