Microsoft has released a special promotion to try and get PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users to switch to the next-generation Xbox One console experience with a new $100 trade-in incentive.
My PS3 has over $100 worth of games and movies on the HDD.
I have over $400 on it, plus it has better multimedia features than both current gen consoles at the moment. EDIT:Oh and FREE online!:D
Man, MS is just trying EVERYTHING, talk about desperate.
Seriously pathetic promotion. We had a promotion at EB/Gamestop in Canada recently trade in your PS3 or 360 and 5 games worth $8 trade get $250 towards PS4. Stackable so if you had other $8 trade get $20 for each additional game. We had a bunch of people upgrade and get $200 PS4's.
Well, it looks like it's time for me to jump on board. I'll never trade my PS3, because it has too many good games on it, but my 360 isn't really getting any play time. So I can trade my 360 in and I already have a $100 gift card to the MS store which means my XBO would only cost $199. So I guess I'll be seeing you guys online now.
My PS3 still waiting for Persona 5, Tales of Xillia 2, Tales of Zestiria, KH 2.5.. my 360 collecting dust though.
What exactly is "cool" about this XiSasukeUchiha?
Im as hell sure I wont sell my PS3 until I have completed Persona 5 and Tales of Zestiria, not to mention huge backlog. To be honest, for JRPG fans PS3 is only now starting to pick up the steam. 2014-2015 have to be great years and probably even something in 2016. Meanwhile my x360 is collecting dust as I completed all I wanted long ago (gears, blue dragon, lost odyssey, tales of vesperia, fable 2). P.S. 299$ is too much for a console with no RPG games.
Tempting, my 360 is just collecting dust.
Lol, i know right, mines is too. But seriously, even though i dont even use my 360 at all anymore, the X1 still isnt worth $300 to me.
I don't really care for the X1 but you gotta admit that is a solid deal.
Great deal. Do they take two ps3s?
As if you had 1! What's your plan to boost them off of friends you know?
It depends, If they're like the imaginary ones you got, then no.
Not enough to give up better media features.
Sooooo true $100 is pretty much a slap in the face in the first place, thinking about the lost media player, media server functionality just makes it worse. Just save a bit longer for that extra $100 and have both systems.
thats cool for owners who dont have them yet
I dont even want the 360 I have, but I still wouldnt trade it in for an Xbox One.
I still use my 360 and there is not enough on the other systems to make me want to switch at this point in time.
or you can still sell your ps3 for close to or over $200 on ebay with controllers/games. But those not wanting to deal with ebay, this is a awesome hassle free deal i wouldn't be surprised if sony also started offering something similar
I prefer Craigslist, same idea though.
To be honest i use to buy and sell a lot of stuff from craiglist before. But over the last year or so, its just full of scammers they either ask you to email them than you get a lot of junk email and people who do leave their phone numbers never reply lol, also one thing i have noticed is how unaware of their asking prices people are on craiglist lately. I was looking to buy killzone shadow fall and the person wanted $25 when i sent him the link showing bestbuy had it for $20 but a while back craiglist was the best place to buy or sell, now not so much. I just use ebay, even though there are fees. Atleast my item sells and i get paid on time
I could get more than $100 out of a Ps3 or 360 selling it.
Nice now my friends will get one PS no pun intended
What else? Sells your ps4 and get an x1 for free?
Better add a $100 incentive on to that...
I love how it says 360 must be able to turn on with and be in working order and says nothing about the ps3...must be because they know the ps3's hardly break down.
What's Microsoft gonna do with a bunch of PS3's? http://www.blogcdn.com/www....
Piss on them , then sink them in deepest part of the ocean with weights. Lol
Now we can safely call desperation. This is the second time they do this Edit:regular 360 accepted?? Cause i dont use that one anymore and wouldblnt mind upgrading to see what all the titanfall fuss is about
Hnnnnggggg this is so tempting! If only the Xbox One was backwards compatible, I would have already done this no questions asked. Someday... Someday.
If I had a 360 still I would, that thing isnt worth 100 to me
My PS3 still rockin and the library can kick all X1 games in the nuts. So nope. Not gonna trade my PS3 for X1. Not in a million years.
Then for the ps4 ether.....or are you just a troll fan boy?
Lol fanboy? troll? Dude, you took this stupid console wars too seriously. So before you calling me with other 'names', FYI, beside PS3 & vita i have a 3DS and i will not trade it for X1. No offense dude, i love my Zelda, Bravely Default, Ace Attorney, etc and for me there's nothing on X1 libary that catch my eyes or worth to trade. For PS4, i always keep and never trade my previous console with the new one. So i don't know where the hell you got the idea that i will trade my PS3 for PS4.
Show me back-wards compatibility and DLNA features and I'll gladly partake in a purchase. I'd like more features INCLUDING the features from the predecessors please. Some stuff was supposed to be available day one, still not available?
Competition is good for consumer and I don't care if they are desperate for sales. If is a good deal then it is!
This is a lame promotion if your microsoft yu have to make people wanna upgrade 100 that weak if yu tryna sell consoles and make a splash drop some good prices ur already taking a loss might aswell take a little bigger one to get some consoles sold cause what there doing isnt working consoles sittit on the shelf aint making yu no money
That's a good deal..
What a great deal, I have two broken xbox 360's which I would gladly trade in for $100 off a xbox one or a chocolate bar
Tempting the Ps3 is just sitting there, last game it saw was the show plus that is 15.00 more dollars than game stop is offering. Does anyone know when it ends seriously considering doing this deal.
How is a disagree justify when one is contemplating what to do with one property. The disagree makes no sense., but whatever.
You probably got disagrees cause you said your ps3 is just sitting there. Here on n4g you are expected to sleep, shower, and have dinner with your playstation even if you have no use for it...to say you would trade it for a microsoft product is taboo and grounds for prosecution...in case you haven't noticed. :p
neither the xbox 360 or PS3 is even worth trading in for a xbox one (way to many games on last gen consoles), especially for only a $100 reduction you can sell them for way more on ebay etc..
