Major Nelson tweeted about a nice trade-in deal currently available at BestBuy in US.
If you have a last gen console laying somewhere around, do it.
I would, except I have both 360 and One and still play on last gen from time to time.
Fine print: Trade in any working Xbox 360 or PS3 console and receive a $75 coupon towards a Xbox One Console. Trade in a working Xbox 360 250GB or Sony Playstation 3 Slim and receive a minimum $100 gift card. http://www.bestbuy.com/site... What I'd like to know is what will BB do with the systems that get traded in?
Gonna trade in my Sega Genesis, aka MY last gen console for an xbox one. Finally a good deal Edit: dang, cant do it, nd I woulda gotten away with it too if it wasnt for that Meddling Nelson!
@darthv72 Dang it, I have the really old (launch) 360. For $175, I would have considered it; it would have been almost half off. For $75....nah. Oh well, I still play GeOW, Crackdown, and Dead Rising 1 every once in a while.
I thought the Wii was considered "last gen." Would love to trade that in.
I have a first gen PS3 that works almost perfectly so i'm waiting to sell it for a lot more then 175$
you would only get $75 for it anyway if you did this.
@darth The fully BC compatible PS3's are worth more than the newer ones if they work. As time goes on, and they become harder to find, they'll be worth a lot more than they are now. The only thing that may change that is if a new PS console comes out with full generational BC. I have one. Will keep it because it's 3 consoles in one, and should it break, I'll repair it.
Do it, dad! (meme)
you aint kiddin :D I may just take a plunge for another X1 as I have 3 360's that all work
Wow, you've bought 3 X360?! Could you tell me why? OT: So after a price reduction to $350 not long ago, MS launches this promotion. Not even 1,5 years have passed from the launch and the value of the X1 is less than $150 (deducting also the game bundled). It is very clear that MS is trying very hard to sell their console.
MS are in it to win it as they say... But I've got some bad news for good 'ol MS ...It's too late.
I have 4 360's that all work and they are the following models... the original launch pro 20gb the black elite 120gb the halo 3 edition the 360 slim 4gb w/250gb hdd installed. i like collecting variants but that gen was crazy with so many to collect. i just went for what was attainable even though there is the star wars, gears of war, modern warfare and halo 4 editions. Maybe i will get them if i find them cheap enough but i'm good with the ones i have now. i really only play the slim anyway. The others are just shelf pieces.
I have 3 360, 1 PS3 1 Wii, 2 Xbox ones and my original Nintendo. I have one Xbox one and 360 in my theatre room, one of each where my kids play and one 360 in my bedroom....maybe upgrade that now to a one
Trade in 1 right now and get this deal. Then wait for a deal like this for the PS4 then just keep your best 360 for your favorite 360 games.
I guess you fell asleep at the wheel...here is a similar ps4 deal that was posted on n4g a few days ago. http://www.playstationlifes...
Wow, that's a lot? How did you get so many of them?
Deal is misleading! BESTBUY Trade in any working Xbox 360 or PS3 console and receive a $75 coupon towards a Xbox One Console. Trade in a working Xbox 360 250GB or Sony Playstation 3 Slim and receive a minimum $100 gift card.
... Which translates to $175 towards an Xbox one...
No it does not because you would actually need to trade in 2 consoles to get the $175 deal.... Gamestop had a similar deal a few weeks ago except you only needed 1 console. http://www.twinfinite.net/2...
You get the coupon AND the gift card. The $175 is used for the Xbox One, as the coupon only works with purchase of an Xbox One. How are you not getting this? It comes directly from a high ranking Xbox employee. Why would you trade in a console for a coupon, when all Best Buy trades go on a gift card? SMH...
The deal is that you'll get $100 for the console. Then you'll get an additional voucher for $75 towards an Xbone. That's how you obtain the $175.
Assuming you don't have a 250g 360 or ps3 slim you still need to trade in 2 consoles... "trade in ANY working xbox 360 or ps3 and receive $75 coupon. Trade in a working 250gb xbox 360 or ps3 slim and receive a minimum $100 gift card."
I'll never give up my PS3!
Well, if youve got an extra :p
Looks like these deals are going to be around for quite a while this generation.
Good deal if you don't have a digital ps3 library.
That's a pretty great deal. Even better how much cheaper Xbox Ones are to begin with since two years ago.
The price is dropping insanely fast!
I'd trade mine in for backwards compatibility...
Gamestop recently had a promotion for $175 towards a PS4 for a PS3 trade in. Im glad i did it.
If I could somehow play/stream my 360 library through the Xbone, I'd do it in a heartbeat.
So apparently you can get a used 360 250GB from Gamestop for $160 with 5 games. Seems you can get that, the 5 games, take them to BB, and come out an extra $20-30 ahead.
This is pretty neat. I wish I was able to do it.
They don't know how to sell it anymore, just make it free.
