Except that you have to do it towards the pre-order of an Xbox game...

The closest store to me is a kiosk in the mall...

There's one in Boston...

 

So it has to go toward a new X1 or a 360 game, not XBox One games? :/

It says "qualified console games," so I assume you can't offload junk unless we get a list or something.

Says only $10 has to be applied to the preorder of a game

 

Pre-orders require a minimum $10 deposit and at least one must occur in the same transaction as trade-in to receive minimum $10 value Microsoft Store gift card per trade-in

This could potentially be great if we can trade in crappy old Wii games.  Buy 5 of the $1-$2 gamestop Wii games and preorder Halo 5 for ~$20 out of pocket.

Well the trade in company for Microsoft is "Cexchange" Which is the same one that did the limit 5 RadioShack Promo. If it the same way then it will be limited to 5 games per license more then likely just like the radio shack trade in promo was.

in reference to the radioshack promo which seem similar http://www.cheapassg...ces-get-min-25/

Can you trade in 5 games ($50) and preorder 1 game ($10 only)?

I have a Microsoft Store a minutes walk away from where I live, I think I'll stop by tonight.  I'm really curious if this has the potential to get me an XB1 for $40 of Gamestop $1 games.

They are putting one in the Woodlands mall, and I thought there was a kiosk in Deerbrook. If you are in Houston that is...

 

EDIT: Which I now see by your sigs and pics that you must be

I'd like to know this as well. If it has to be recent titles, not really a good deal.

Those two are far from me. :(
Galleria isn't close enough for it to be worthwhile, or I'd try it out.

I live by shitty malls. Almeda and Pasadena mall. YUCK!

Locations if anybody needs it
