It now truly is the end of an era as GameStop has announced that it will stop accepting PlayStation 2 trade-ins this June, so if you’ve been stockpiling anything for trade you had better hurry and offload it.

On June 1 the retailer will stop accepting trades for PS2 systems, software, and accessories. The news first broke after a Reddit user snapped the below photo in a store, but it has since been confirmed by several employees in various locations.

The PlayStation 2 was the final last generation console being accepted by the retailer. The console managed to sell 150 million units worldwide and had over 10,000 games available for it before Sony ceased production worldwide early this year.
