Gamestacker is something that, as an idea, is potentially one of the most valuable things a gamer who prefers to be a bit more savvy can have. If you’ve ever traded a game into a big retailer and been a bit disappointed with what you’d end up getting for it, Gamestacker is exactly for you. Instead of trading your game for a tiny amount of money at a retailer, Gamestacker allows users to cut out the middle man and orchestrate game trading at their own leisure. Each user of Gamestacker can essentially use their profile as a hub for trading their games. You can offer your games for trade, search for people looking for your game or even just browse what games everyone else wants to trade to see if there’s something you want. So, basically, it gives you the opportunity to trade your games for other games rather than money or store credit. It’s a great idea that may encounter some brick walls as far as reaching its market is concerned, but if those walls are passed, Gamestacker does have the potential to kick off very nicely.
Recently, Gamestacker released a mobile app for their service on both Android and iOS devices. From my own personal experience with the app, it’s great. I can see myself using it a lot for when I’m looking to trade something in. One thing that I could see being really useful is an app on home consoles. Tapping into a user’s played games on their gamer profiles for each of their consoles would offer Gamestacker the opportunity to give gamers the ability to essentially just pick from games they already own and offer them up for trade. Syncing a player account with a Gamestacker account would also be incredibly useful for users of all major services like Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and Steam.
As well as offering this new service, Gamestacker also gives you a way to enjoy the existing trade-in market in a much more cheaper way. The service has a feature that essentially takes all the trade-in values of games, compiles them, and then puts them up so that everyone can see where they’re likely to get the best deal when trading in their games. It’s not the primary feature of the service, but it’s still an incredibly useful one for those who would be likely to use it.
All in all, Gamestacker is a service with a lot of potential growth ahead of it with the possibility of coming to consoles or various other devices. It’s completely free, it’s infinitely useful, and can help find that incredibly rare gem that has been eluding you for years. Get out there and try it as it’s the consumers who have to show interest to get this great product moving.

We will be beginning a new series that will be utilising this fantastic app in the near future, so watch this space!
