Goozex, the online video game and movie trading community is expanding its catalog of games systems to incorporate retro game platforms. The list includes:
- Nintendo 64
- Game Boy
- Game Boy Advance
- Sega Genesis
- Sega CD
- Atari 2600
Lusting after a copy of Super Mario RPG for the SNES? No problem! Over 6,000 titles will be made available when Goozex starts to roll this service out. For trades, members will request or offer titles in their trade queues and Goozex will automatically find a peer to peer match. You will do the shipping yourself but this is not so bad considering Goozex operates with a token system that allows members to retain the original value of their games when they trade. So that copy of Street Fighter 4 that you paid 59.99 for will translate into Goozex tokens of the same value. In turn you can request a game valued at that price.
Jonathan Dugan, COO of Goozex and co-founder of the company is aware of members' long time requests for old school games and had this to say about the retro console extension:
"Since we launched our site in 2006, a frequently asked question has been about adding classic game system titles to our service. We're happy to say that we are going to meet that demand. Our focus has been to become the best in online game trading and adding retro titles to our service helps maintain that vision. Like many of our members, we're excited about trading classic games from the titles that started it all!"
