Two in five gamers have upwards of "$200 unclaimed" by holding on to unused games, according to a study commissioned by GameStop. The survey found 92 percent of those surveyed reported having at least one video game disc "her or she no longer plays."




"One-third of those surveyed (33 percent) said they have between five and nine unused games lying around the house, while 38 percent said they have as many as 10 to 20 unused games," the report reads.


Retailers such as GameStop want players to turn in their games for in-store credit or cash, though 28 percent just haven't bothered to get around to it - while 27 percent only bother trading in game titles when they are low on cash.


GameStop is hoping gamers are willing to turn in their pre-owned games, with newer game titles available for higher monetary amounts.


So, how many games do you have just around the house that you could turn in?
