WAYNE, N.J. Toys"R"Us announced it has expanded its popular "Big Gift" layaway to include video game hardware and is also introducing a new video game hardware trade-in program.

"Since the introduction of the 'Big Gift' layaway last month, the number one request we've received from customers is to expand the program to include video game hardware, and we're responding by providing more convenient payment options for these items," said Jerry Storch, chairman and CEO of Toys"R"Us. "At the same time, we're adding a video game hardware trade-in program in our stores for customers who may be looking for ways to save on Christmas gifts for loved ones or to upgrade their own gaming systems."


Effective immediately, video game hardware is now included in the company's "Big Gift" layaway offering. Through the program, customers can reserve some of the hottest items of the season early when supply is at its best, and make a series of small payments over time. Video game hardware such as Nintendo Wii, DS and DSi, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable systems and related accessories can be placed on layaway.

Beginning Friday, Nov. 20, customers can trade in used video game hardware at Toys"R"Us stores nationwide in exchange for Toys"R"Us gift cards.
