This is low. Our half-man, half-Atari, 100% crazy uncles over at Kotaku got a photo tip on GameStop requiring $50 worth of trade-ins to reserve a PS3 or Wii. While not confirmed, if such is the case the console wars have reached a new low. $50 of trade-ins equals about $200 in games, according to my guesstimates. And if GameStop can't supply necessary demands at launch, it's not up to the consumer to bribe them with what is almost the entire price of the Wii for a preorder. Photo of the poster, after the jump.
