GameStop will offer exclusive trade offer for the Xbox One X following Microsoft's Gamescom pre-order announcement via live-stream.
May trade in my S if it's worth it
It is only if you don't have a gaming PC
This^ is the kind of ignorant and immature comment that gives gamers a bad rep.
I have a gaming pc, I am also buying the xbox x day 1. If you Have the money for a decent gaming pc then xbox x is a tiny purchase. Why not add one x to the collection.
Right because suddenly everyone has a gaming PC as powerful as the One X....
@sd11 "I have a gaming pc, I am also buying the xbox x day 1. If you Have the money for a decent gaming pc then xbox x is a tiny purchase. Why not add one x to the collection." Hmm... Redundancy and having to buy a live subscription year after year just to play it's games online, when the money saved on all of that could be put towards making your "decent" gaming PC a real beast? I know, crazy talk.
I have a nice gaming PC and I am buying the X.
That's correct. I don't know why anyone is disagreeing. There is zero reason to own this, if you have a good gaming PC.
@Choujij @We are legion "There is zero reason to own this" There is plenty of reason to own and Xbox as well as pc. Firstly many of my friends do not own gaming pc's but do own and Xbox. I like to game with them so I need an xbox to do this. Secondly I can buy a single digital game and game on 2 systems at the same time with my kids using just 1 single game purchase. This lets me play multiplayer games with my kids for 1 price. 3rd I played ps3 almost exclusively last gen, so B/C allows me to play games I missed. Plus getting them free each month with Live is a bonus. 4th I speed run a lot of games and do not want to own them all. So Xbox allows me to buy games, speed run them and then sell them. This more than offsets the xbox live subscription costs, so it becomes a non issue. 5th I like the simplicity of console gaming and my pc is in a different room. I do not want it in my entertainment room and prefer it to stay in my study. I like gaming on a big screen.
@BLKxSEPTEMBER I do, mine is definitely more powerful...i7 6700k, gtx 1080, 16GB ram. No point in getting an xbox one x when I can play all the exclusives & mutiplats in 4k already!
Ok, fine for you. But the people that don't have $1200 for a PC right now should consider buying X. Especially if they have a S or base already.
Then you are in a minority. Your comment is just trolling.
@Bobafret So I am trolling because I am a minority? That's racist!
@343_Guilty_Spark obviously you do, because you chose to respond!
But its all about the individual needs of each person. I have a similiar spec pc and am getting the xbox x. In the comment above i outlined 5 of my top reasons for doing so. But obviously these may not apply to you. But i consider them great reasons to an X to my collection.
@sd11 I do agree with what you have to say, it is for the individual needs. For your 5 points: 1. All my friends moved to PS4 this gen, (kind of my doing because I was the early adopter of the bunch, but they were all upset about the xbox one reveal). 2. I don't have kids, it is just me, so I don't have to worry about sharing. 3. I was xbox the last 2 gens, so I am enjoying the playstation exclusives. But you are right, and I may pick up an xbox one s in the future for backward compatibility, because you can't emulate og xbox and 360 yet. 4. This is why I buy a lot of games on ps4, so I can sell them after I beat them. I only buy pc games if I can get them under $10 because I can't resell them. Cheapdigitaldownload.com, cdkeys, G2A, & kinguin helps me find low prices on games. I will also rebuy games I played on console that have pc ports...as some last gen games can play at higher resolutions and are almost like some of the remasters they do, like Enslaved. 5. My PC is connected to my tv and I use it mostly as a monitor, so I don't need to worry about this.
I started this gen off with an Xbox One as the exclusives appealed more. I did buy a ps4 and have played most of the exclusives, but I don't use it for third party games at all. Pretty sure if I could get a few select friends to abandon xbox next gen then I will move across to Sony exclusively. Xbox are just not doing enough regarding games. Even their latest game, Age of Empires 4, does not have a mention for Xbox. As for cheap PC games, yes I use humble bundle and humble bindle monthly a lot. I like playing older games like bioshock, skyrim etc in 4k as it saves me needing remastered versions.
They only give you $150 for it, you might get more selling it locally.
Trade my S if it's appealing enough
It's Gamestop, so I hate to say it but any trade offer they give you is likely not really worth it - considering the profit margins the companies like Game (UK) and Gamestop (US) make on pre-owned items.
Worth it if u have multiple S or 360s you need to replace
Depends not to long ago they doubled trade in values of Walmart game prices on accident. I once got $100 trade in value for a 2ds to new 3ds xl when it originally released, which is was a killer deal. Most of the time they have okay trade up deals. Odds are you get $20-30 less than selling yourself, but considering the time you save and the overall convenience it offers you kind of are still getting a good deal
It's $150 trade credit, which isn't too bad for an X1S if one intends to get a Scorpio, doesn't need to have both consoles(which most probably don't), and doesn't want to take the time to sell the system on their own to net maybe an extra $30 or so on ebay, or $50 if they happen to find a buyer on their own.
I might get mine there if I don't see better deals elsewhere.
GameStop usually has the best deals for this kind of stuff.
sadly I've nothing to trade ^_^ I'm gonna have to buy it outright ..
So you've got no consoles or games? But even if you did, you would actually be dumb enough to give them to GameStop instead of selling them for full value on Ebay? Why am I not surprised by any of this coming from you? Well it looks like you're just gonna have to buy your precious Xbox One X with all the tolls from your bridge...
ahah! GameStop isn't even in the UK. I'll surely have my precious ^_^ .. It should compliment my PC nicely... One more platform in mind afterward :D
Same. Might trade my ps4.
@P5 Like someone is going to pay you much more for a used console on eBay. Plus they will expect games. $150 for the console alone and keeping your games is worth it. I hope Sony pays the people who get on every Xbox article with their nonsense lack of reasoning. If it's worth it? Then you have three or four more repeat the phrase to really pull the sheep in. It's $150, which is worth $150. There is nothing to figure out. If you have S and want X this makes it cheaper if you don't want to keep both.
@PlayStation5 The going price for used X1's on Ebay is about 150-180 right now....for those with free shipping. Selling on ebay would net you maybe $140, assuming the customer paid shipping. GameStop is offering $150 without the fuss of doing all that, and needing to set up a paypal account, or an ebay account, or have to worry about getting scammed by some customer on ebay. Doesn't seem dumb to me at all.
getting ready for the pre order, oh boy
Probably not alot for the OG X1, guess around 100$
How much you think gamestop will give me for a xbox one s 1tb ?
You will probably get more by selling it on Amazon, Ebay or Craigslist. I would recommend selling it on Amazon. They make it easiest.
good new for xone owners but game stop? hmm
with this being a mid gen upgrade Microsoft should be the ones offering trade ins and @ a good price as well.
So should Sony be offering a trade in for the PlayStation 4 Pro as well, or does it work differently for the other company? Yeah, just what I thought.
Why would they when they have more than double the sales? They don't need to offer anything.
Cool but am keeping my S , just need to make room on the entertainment unit for Xbox one X .
If you have another TV somewhere that makes sense. If you don't... hmm.
Did my 4K television shopping for Xbox one S when was announced and just recently picked up another 4K Samsung for Xbox one X . Am good to go .
I'll keep an eye on this deal. I want to get one, money is hard to come by right now lol.
I will trade my sons regular xbox one and give him my xbox s.
I want the Project Scorpio Limited Edition....box looks cool as shit also!
I don't trade in my consoles. I usually donate them to a local boys and girls home for troubled youths and unfortunately orphans. They really appreciate them and will use them for years beyond what I would. But hopefully gamestop offers some good deals for all of those wanting to take advantage of the promo. Around a consoles launch is about the only time gamestop offers anything close to being a fair price for your systems.
I have a 2500 gaming pc but will still get the xbox one x as I prefer the simplicity of console gaming... and graphically there won't be a great deal between xb1x and pc. I also play on my ps4 pro, each machine will be good in it's own area. I used to use xbox one all the time but now most my time is on ps4 pro and pc for simulators...
"and graphically there won't be a great deal between xb1x and pc", that's not even close to true.
Your right not even close to true because most PC's (somewhere around 93% of all gamers on Steam) can't do 4K at all. Not without a big upgrade. And of the ones that can do 4K reasonably well (with a NVidia 1080 only about 50% are using a monitor able to handle a resolution of 4K or above on what a 27" monitor with no HDR). Most PC gamers (by an overwhelming margin) are still stuck playing games at 1080p at medium settings (even those PC Anywhere games most can't run them well) as they don't have rigs for some reason you think all PC gamers have. But, PC fan boys like yourself always group a small subsection of users as the whole of the collective Master Race. Let's just face 4K on PCs is a minority of a minority. Weighing in on the cost of just getting a 4K capable card like a 1070 you are starting around $450 for a no frills card (almost the cost of this console and even that card according to DF is not as capable as the XBOX) and a NVidia 1080 is going set you back quite a bit more.
@ImGumbyDammit LOL! Calling me a PC fanboy thanks for the laugh. Stating a fact makes me a fanboy now? The fact is PC's are capable of far better graphics then xbone x can output rather that hurts your feelings or not. Making up numbers doesn't mean anything, where did you pull 93% from, dont tell me I already know. But to use your own argument against you I suppose you think everyone in the world owns a 4k TV right? I knew you xbox guys were good for having the wool pulled over your eyes but I didn't think you were actually this bad, its sad really. I mean its no sweat off me you're the one who's in for serious disappointment.
I'm STILL waiting to see where this "complexity" is with my pc. Click steam. Install. Play. Done.
I just need new IPs to play and I would probably do this.
I'm going to steal one. Wait to ambush someobe at Best Buy
Thank god gamestop is giving gamers incentives and making the 1x pill a bit easier to swallow $$ wise. Ms should also put as many free bee's in the box as possible, (unlock game codes for free digital games, 3 to 6 month xbl memberships, ect). This console is going to need all the help it can get and esp after the holiday rush has passed. Hell, i think it would be a huge incentive to make xbl free for a whole year for early adopters... It doesnt really cost ms anything and would surely entice ppl on the fence. Along with gamepass, and ea access free for 6-12 months and esp if they could get all those games in "uncompromised 4k support"
I think MS know that for the most part, this console will sell to existing Xbox owners and they are hoping this will tempt enough of them into making the switch.
Nothing special. $200 max as usual. http://www.gamestop.com/col... Edit: $100-125 for Xbox One S? Wow. So this is just the normal trade-in deals.
Most of the time, trade offers at GameStop aren't really worth it. $500 for the XBone Ex Scorpio isn't really worth it. That's a double negative my friends. The choice is yours.
