Amazon Now Offering Video Game Trade-In

Amazon has now entered the video game trade-in market.  Yesterday the company announced the beta launch of Amazon Video Games Trade-In.  You can add games to your cart that you would like to trade in, and upon completing the the process you then print out a prepaid shipping label.  You then mail your games in and once Amazon verifies the game they will then deposit an Amazon gift card into your account for the amount, which you can spend on anything they sell. 

This market is currently dominated by GameStop, but Amazon could quickly become a major player as well.  The advantage Amazon has is that you can use your money from the trade-ins on products other than video games.  Given the current state of the economy this market should only grow.
