Got old video games? Or some you don't want? The world's largest retailer is expanding its program to take in used games.

Walmart plans to let video game owners trade in used titles online as well as in its stores and Sam's Club outlets. In exchange, game owners will get store credit. In the past, Walmart offered trade-ins on a limited basis online.

Walmart will also start selling refurbished used games in its stores for the first time. It's part of a move by Walmart to boost revenue at a time many of its customers are having trouble making ends meet because of the poor economy. The value for each trade-in video game will vary by the title, console and age of the game, ranging from a few dollars for older games to $35 and more for newer ones.

Amazon, Target, Best Buy, GameStop and others also offer video game trade-in programs.
