Weird that it's only towards PS4 and not Xbox One.  You'd think people trading in their 360 would be getting the X1.

Honestly with Halo MCC coming out, I'm hoping they bring out a Gears Trilogy remake as well and then I won't need the 360 at all.

I know, I'm stuck in between whether or not to get rid of the 360 or the PS3.

Not really. Sony even said a good chunk of PS4 buyers didn't own a PS3 last gen. The PS4 has replaced the 360 in the US as the defacto console to own so it makes sense to market to those consumers.

I think they've had some deals before where it was just Xbox One and not PS4. Now it's PS4's turn (and I'm pretty sure they've also had some periods where the trade-in bonus was good for BOTH next-gen systems anyway).

Perfect timing. This offer goes through the release date of the PS4 destiny bundle.  :D/

 

I almost have to get it now, that's more than full value for a PS3. If I "wrap up" my backlog on 360, I wonder if I could trade in both systems to apply $300 towards PS4? I assume these deals usually only allow you to do offer at a time?

I haven't the slightest of clues whether you can stack old systems. Free PS4 anyone? Lol

Hmmmm. Should I trade in my PS3 and/or 360? I still play them more than my PS4 and Wii U, but I'd love to get a One... I know I won't be able to get this much next year.

Nah, I say keep the Wii U and wait on the xbox one if you have to play it's exclusives. Hyrule Warriors, Super Smash Brothers, and Bayonetta are coming out this year.

 

Not being a fanboy...I'd recommend the same if he had an XB1 and was looking to get a PS4. 

 

Most anticipated games are coming from both console and the few exclusives might be worth waiting to see a Black Friday deal. 

I like the XB1 but I really think I should have held out for Microsoft to release a slim edition X_X

agreed, right now is the wrong time to ditch the wii u. i would also hang on to your ps3 since japan is still releasing games for that system plus it can do a lot of stuff and play a lot of games (although mine's BC and yours might not be)

I had a 360 and PS3 that I rarely played, traded in games with the 50% bonus and ended up paying 100 out of pocket for the PS4 and Madden. Worked out for me.

How is it fraud when they test the system to see if it works? I've heard of them taking broken systems but what about ylod systems?

You're committing a serious criminal offense.


I support Rozz 100%.

Rozz is always right.

Rozz, you're the best.

Impressive, you are the greatest human to grace this planet.

Don't mind them. I know when people troll, lol. No. They shouldn't take in YLOD, but extreme YMMV. If the system turns on, but doesn't read, they might or might not hit you with a refurb fee..

I'm assuming you can trade in a 360 and PS3 system and get $300? If so, I might do that.

I traded both systems and got credit for both. They were both 75 dollar systems because they were low end, but I did get both applied to PS4 promo

And other people got them to do it also. But if you follow the gamestop thread and this one it's not supposed to apply the bonus for both. I'd imagine it was easier for the gamestop you were at find it easier to override since you were trading in the cheaper versions. Just like any other promo that is supposed to work a certain way it's ymmv.

Good deal.  One big problem though - you have to do this at a GameStop.

Nah my local store is so lame it actually says gamestop instead of GameStop. It's really weird like the couldn't afford the proper sign.

Hey Howie learn to read. Mine was a legitimate question about the purchase of a PS4. I don't do much business with GS and just wanted to know if they do not charge state tax on this trade transaction like with other trades.
