Gamestop has expanded its retro games business to online sales.

To facilitate your collection of classic games on legacy consoles, Gamestop has added listings for retro games to its web shop.

The store update has brought plenty of attention to the retail chain’s collection of out-of-print titles, but has not gone uncriticised – many of the old games are priced similarly to new releases, despite not being especially rare, and available for significantly less through other sources.

There’s also no way of telling what condition a game is in – with or without packaging, wear and tear level – which makes the service of negligible use for collectors.

Still, if you just want a copy of a favourite N64 game quickly and easily, you now have another option. Check it out over on Gamestop.
