GameStop on Monday announced that it is once again accepting PlayStation 2 trade-ins.

The retailer stopped accepting trade-ins for the system, the best-selling home console of all-time, back in June 2013. But now, GameStop is getting back into the business due to" high" demand.

"The video game console that had captured millions of hearts around the world continues to breathe life," GameStop said in a statement. "The Sony PlayStation 2 is known for its vast library of games and being the top selling video game console of all-time. GameStop knows that a demand for this iconic piece of video game history is still high and will once again buy back PS2 consoles."

As of March 1, all United States GameStop stores will offer $25 in store credit to shoppers who trade in a system with a power cable, AV/cable, and one controller. If you've lost these accessories over the years, GameStop will still pay you $20 for the console itself.

GameStop encourages anyone with specific questions about the new PS2 trade-in program to contact their local store.
