Video game retailer GameStop sees "significant opportunity" to apply its buy/sell/trade model to technology products like smartwatches music players, the company said this week during its annual investors conference.
"The value strategy goes well beyond just games. We see significant opportunity in emerging technology products as well," GameStop EVP of strategic business Mike Hogan said.
A few of the examples Hogan showed were wearable technology like smartwatches and fitbands, as well as "home tech" like a Beats Pill speaker system.
He said products like these represent a "future opportunity" for buy/sell/trade and that GameStop is already testing some of these products in its refurbishment center.
GameStop already accepts trade-ins for a variety of non-gaming devices, including tablets, laptops, and smartphones. It's unclear when GameStop will begin accepting trade-ins for new technology products like the ones Hogan mentioned or what their value will be.
