According to documents obtained by Kotaku, the retailer wants to simplify its offers and encourage more people to sell their games back to stores once they’ve completed them.

As well as an increase of 20 percent, those with a reward card will continue to get a little extra, although you will still be offered less for a cash deal rather than credit.

GameStop’s current system offers up to 10 different prices for a game. This is being reduced to 4 different prices from August 18th.

“We will not have complex multi-tiered trade promotions for the associates to remember and less math for the customer to understand what they are getting for their games,” reads an internal document.
