GameStop is streamlining their trade-in program starting August 18, according to documents and confirmation obtained by Kotaku.

In place of the current system’s 10 possible prices per game, the simplified pricing will only have 4, and base trade-in value will be increased 20 percent. So a game that fetches you $9.00 before will instead net you $11.

“By eliminating the higher end price of products we buy and raising the lower end, we are able to raise the overall value the customers will receive,” reads one of the documents Kotaku obtained. “With this program, we will not have complex multi-tiered trade promotions for the associates to remember and less math for the customer to understand what they are getting for their games.”

Some components of the current system, though, will remain, such as getting more for having a GameStop rewards card, or gaining more for your trade-in if it’s for credit rather than cash.
