Target, Best Buy Start Gaming War

AP

Babysitter arrested for allegedly stealing video games from a family.

Electronics retailer Best Buy says it is offering store credit in exchange for used video games at nearly 600 of its stores, expanding an online trade-in program that has been in place for about a year.

      The move Thursday follows Wednesday's announcement by Target Corp. that it is launching an electronics trade-in program at 850 of its stores later this year. Target will also offer store credit to customers who turn in their mobile phones and iPods.
     
Best Buy Co., which has 1,089 locations, with several in the Bay Area, including San Francisco and San Jose, plans to roll out the trade-in program to the rest of its stores by October.

The company will start selling used video games in its stores soon, but provided no specifics. The current trade-in program involves customers mailing in games after filling out forms online.
