Damn, wish this counted towards The Bone, since my brother-in-law was considering trading his 360 for it.

Trade it in towards a ps4 and then return the ps4 at a later date (different location lol) for an xbox one?

wow.

 

Got a OG 60gb.

 

Don't know if I'm ready for a PS4 yet (Since I'm getting an Xbox One this week).

 

this makes it tempting.

So...I don't see anything saying "limit 1 trade per transaction/customer," so COULD you trade in multiple junk 360 models towards this?

 

Also, what is the TIV for a PS4? It says that it's $344.50, and that it's after the promotional value. However, the promo it references says it is for games and accessories, so can anyone attest to what the base TIV is? If $344.50 was the base, then people could get $516.75 for a PS4 after that 50% boost when getting a PS4/One.

 

Just trying to see what the actual cost of a One would be here. If you could trade in the 360 for $100, then you'd get the PS4 at about $335. That could be traded in for $516.75. So, for $335 in cash and an unused console, you could get $516.75 in credit? That would leave the difference for a One at about $26. So, a One could be purchased for under $375 with this promotion.

Since it says "defective items may be eligible for trade at a lesser value" I am guessing my phat 60 gb that can't read discs won't work for that since I assume they check that for that kind of thing. I assume the lesser value would make it go from $150 to like $5

Depends on the store and how lazy the employees are, they're supposed to but many don't. Can't hurt to try.

Same here...I just traded in my ps4 towards an xbox one, and when I traded in the xbox one, the Gamestop employee credited it all to my bank card :)

I have 3 Mario Kart 8 club nintendo codes, so I am ready for a Wii U

"Hardware must have all necessary components for trade"

 

What are considered necessary components?

yea it probably won't be full value cause they will test the system out and make sure it works and play games and if it don't they could deny the trade completely or they could lower the values and also more then likely try to charge a refurbishing fee but I forget how much that fee is now
At the bottom of the trade page in small print it even says: Trades must be in full working condition to receive full value.

the console, composite wires and no hdmi cord WONT work, the harddrive, and the power plugs and also the controller. Pretty much everything it originally came with

I think it might vary by employee on the composite cables, the last few times I've traded in 360s they were ok with hdmi cables.

For a PS3 - console, controller, power cord, usb cable and a/v cable.

 

For Xbox 360 - console, hard drive (when applicable), controller (with battery cover/holder), power brick with cord and a/v cable.

Really?

 

Cause that is all I got.

 

Also, wondering if any PS3 controller is good. Got a red PS3 controller that is clearly a knock off after I purchased a used bundle.

Remember, there's a 50% bonus on systems going on right now towards a PS4/XB1. If the base value of the system you're thinking about trading in is greater than $66.67, then you're better off with that 50% bonus. I assume Gamestop's system will give you the best trade-in bonus though, so you probably don't have to worry about it.

They give you a $150 credit for any PS3 over 20 gb and Xbox 360 over 200-something gb.

Damn missing out on this one, my ps3 stopped reading discs so I had to take it apart, thus removing warranty.(sticker)

On the plus side, it plays fine now.

I just traded in a PS3 a few days ago and accidentally brought in an hdmi instead of a/v and they wouldn't take it.  Definitely YMMV but I believe they aren't supposed to take it with hdmi.

Damn, tempted to bring my PS3 and 360 in for an almost-free (thanks to credit banking) shiny new PS4.

I really wouldn't want to offload my 360 HDD though... Hmmmm.

My OG 60GB works perfectly but I did remove the warranty seal so I could dust/clean the inside. Would this pose a problem if I trade it in? (edit - 60GB PS3).

Refurb Fee

 

Also they will probably call the cops for copyright laws.

 

Make your own 360 to brake into.

Damn might try this with my Reach 250GB Xbox and my 60 GB White regular model. Hopefully will be sufficient if I also throw in the Vita at $156 with the 50% boost.
