GameStop executives first began discussing the retailer’s “vintage sales” initiative back in 2012. After three long years, GameStop has finally opened a Retro Classics storefront on their website, offering games that originally appeared on the NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, Genesis, PlayStation, and Dreamcast.
But you better bust open your piggy bank, because most of these games will set you back a fair bit of coin.
Some of the “Featured” titles include games available through the Nintendo eShop for under $10, such as Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! for $34.99, Super Castlevania IV for $44.99, and Contra III: The Alien Wars for $49.99. But there are also some relatively rare titles for sale including PaRappa the Rapper for $34.99, Mega Man Legends for $34.99, and Intelligent Qube for $49.99. None of these titles are available as legal downloads, but that could change at any time.
So remember kinds, retro gaming is great, but don’t forget to shop around.
