GameStop Flip-Flops On  Resident Evil  3DS Trade-Ins

GameStop Flip-Flops On Resident Evil 3DS Trade-Ins

June 29, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Following the revelation that Capcom's Nintendo 3DS title Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D would not allow users to reset save data, retailer GameStop revealed shortly afterwards that it would not be accepting trade-ins of the game.

However, the company has now backtracked on this decision, noting that, starting from today, it will once again be accepting trade-ins of this Resident Evil installment.

A Capcom rep confirmed to Gamasutra earlier in the week that saves cannot be reset, but noted that, "Secondhand game sales were not a factor in this development decision."

Speaking to news site IGN, a GameStop spokesperson revealed, "GameStop did ask the U.S. store base to stop accepting trades on Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D as we evaluated the save system for the game."

"Upon further review of the process with our publisher partner, Capcom, GameStop will resume taking trades on the game effective Wednesday, June 29."

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D is a third-person shooter that spins off of the "mercenaries" mini-games that were introduced in previous Resident Evil games. Players fight against the clock, defeating as many enemies as possible within a time limit.
