Amazon introduces Xbox 360 to Xbox One game trade-up program to match GameStop

XMNR: Amazon launched a new promotion Monday for those upgrading from an Xbox 360 to Xbox One when the next-gen console launches in November. Just like the GameStop program, owners will be able to upgrade their game for $9.99 or less. (Xbox 360, Xbox One)

depending on how much certain companies price their games you could actually be saving money... like say COD could be 50 euro on the 360 then release for 65 on the xbox one... saving yourself a fiver by buying both

It's already been stated that the next gen games will be the same price as we've been paying this gen.

If a game drops in price, you buy that cheaper than launch price version, and then upgrade it to the next gen version for a few bucks then that might work out. but as far as day one games, $60 this gen, $60 next gen.

Wait, let me get this straight:

* I can buy Battlefield 4, for Xbox 360 for $60.00, and then when I get a PS4 eventually, I can purchase Battlefield 4, for only $10 ?

From Gamestop, or via XB1/360 ?

If so, I may get BF4, for 360, I don't want to ruin the experience though playing on a lesser console with less people.

Makes sense if your next gen console isn't going to launch in time for the newest versions of various games.

This way people can buy 360 versions of AC IV, BF4, CoD: Ghosts, etc, and then be able to upgrade them when the One finally comes out.

While it's speculation, everything is pointing to a delayed One launch.

The only question is whether they paper launch it with 500 or 5000 units sent out to people and everyone else will get it when they get it weeks and months later or they outright delay it.

what exactly is pointing to the delayed launch? they've cut 8 countries out which means they only need to focus on 13... those 13 are generally the consoles biggest users.

they only started production on the 360 69 days before it launched and still sold 1.5mil by the end of the year... they've currently 73 days till november 1st... if they launch november 15 that's 87 days to produce consoles... also rumors are they started production in june/july so not sure why their would be a delay in the major markets for microsoft?

Why isn't Sony doing this maybe because of a October surprise.

Yeah. I think PS4 is coming out much sooner so you won't have to buy these big games on current-gen.
