Four months ago, people couldn't buy a Wii, PlayStation or X Box fast enough. Now, they can't get rid of them fast enough. Many people are opting to pawn these game systems for some extra cash.

David Erwin, owner of Erwin's Pawn Shop, says he is seeing more people than ever before bring in systems to sell, and often times it's for extra gas money.

Erwin sees about forty to sixty game systems exchange hands in his store every week. That's up from the average of twenty he says he saw a few months ago.
