With the PS5 and the Xbox Series S and X only a few weeks away, you might have started desperately scrabbling around to try and find things to sell.

Where can you trade in your SNES Mini?

Unlike some of the other mini consoles, you can actually trade-in your SNES Mini with GAME. This is likely to be a little easier on your plan for a next-gen console than anywhere else.
