Damn, I wonder if it's time for me to get rid of my Gears 360?

I don't know that gears console is a pretty ass console.   I think one of if not the best.

May be a dumb question, but does this require you to trade in the console and buy the same day? I.e. could I put the $150 towards the ps4 and pay off the rest in a few weeks?

Got some bills to take care of before I can buy a ps4, but $150 is $40 more than what best buy is offering

I think you can, the email they sent me had a picture of the Destiny bundle behind the words "Up to 150 off".
I know I'm damn well gonna try next payday.

Has anyone traded in an original 360 with a 250gb+ hdd? If I do end up doing this trade in, I'd like to get a larger hard drive for my 360 to get the $150 trade in value.

Stop trying to justify fraud.

This stuff makes me tired. My gamestop's manager let me trade in a 360 with most of my games, buy a PS4 I never touched, return it and put it all on a PS4 destiny bundle pre-order. I'm not sure what will happen on the tax end but I'm pretty sure that varies by state.

The add doesn't specify which model of PS3 gets the 150$ trade-in, it just mentions hard drive size. So if I traded in a working  PS3 phat (the software ps2 backwards compatible model) with a 160gb hdisk would I get the 150$? I wish the ad was more clear.


Nah, they go by the model number, at least for me they did. I had a 340 GB in mine, but because it was originally an 80, I only got the 80

Some of the questions about trading in defective consoles (yes they will take them with a refurb fee) and what you need for the trade in are available here in various FAQs:

Not sure about whether or not you need a hard drive based on a quick scan but you might find an answer there.

I went in today to trade in for a Destiny PS4. He could not get the PS3 trade in promo to apply to the preorder. Told me to apply my games and accessory balance towards the preorder. He said I could come in after 5pm day before release to apply the PS3 promo to Destiny PS4 so I wouldn't have to carry it up there at midnight launch.

Also you only pay tax for the portion paid in cash/credit. My final price after all trades and tax is $128. Not bad for what could have been $480. Too bad Kongregate coupon expires on the 7th it won't apply to any preorders so guess it will go towards some PSN or XBL credit.

I did this deal earlier. The guy that worked there was very nice. He let me trade in a PS3 and Xbox 360 for $300. I asked him about the 50% trade offer but didn't have a coupon. He went to the back and found one for me since I was trading in a bunch of games. All together I got $540 in credit. Way more than I thought I would. I got the PS4 and EA Sports UFC.

His question had nothing to do with fraud - they do take broken systems, it says right on the offer. Whether or not they take one with a serious defect like a YLOD is a legitimate question. He never said anything about pretending it was fully functional.

I do like it but the Gears sounds it makes are pretty awful IMO - too mechanical sounding. And anyway, I don't really use it anymore.

I plan on trading both my 360 and ps3 in for the $300. I already have an xbox one so I don't want any multiplatform games. Debating between getting infamous or The last of us. What do you guys think?

Great deal but I have more than $150 worth of unplayed games on both my systems.  It kills me some days to not go next gen yet but I just need to wait.

I kind of regret trading in my PS3. I haven't even had it a year and I have lots of digital games. I'm going to try to find a cheap one on Craigslist at the end of this year though.

Seems people are able to trade a 360 and a PS3 towards a PS4, right? I have 2 360s and don't use my PS3 so this would awesome since I have like $400 in credit at GS.

Just go next gen. can't just hang on to old games forever, especially when we know they'll never be played nor completed. Life doesn't provide us enough time to devote to gaming and live a responsible life.

if you trade a 360, does it have to have a hard drive? ir can i keep my drive and just get rid of the console and such?

Bump on this question, I recently moved and for some reason I can't find my Hard Drive, haven't touched my 360 in a while and now seems a good time to get rid of it. Do they require a hard drive or are they just basing it on the model number of the 360 for the bonus?

I think you need the hard drive, though YMMV. He made sure to check what hard drive it was on the 360 and the PS3

I thought the trade bonus was dependent on a hard drive being included?

I know for the slims they check, they've checked mine every time. I can't say for the old ones, I can't remember - but I assume that you would need it since no HDD made them basically useless (just look at it from their point of view, they plan to at least try to sell these one day).

Man...to get rid of your PS3 and all of its downloaded software for only $150 either means you didn't invest a lot in digital software or you're that desperate for a $150 cheaper PS4 - in that case just wait to jump into the new Gen once you can genuinely afford it. The opportunity cost here is abysmal.

I was just wondering. I traded an old 360 a few years ago with the hard drive seperate. I didn't know at the time that the hard drive had a seperate trade-in value, they were nice enough to tell me then.

I didn't really invest in digital software, I barely even used Playstation plus. I bought one of those month passes for $3  last year. Most of my gaming is on my pc, I only really play COD and Fifa on my PS3 and use it for blu-rays and streaming. My 360 is collecting dust and this seems like a good way to get rid of it. It does seem appealing to get rid of both for $300 as I hate selling electronics on craigslist.

Not really - I don't play my old games all that often. I don't see a $150 value in having an old system that I don't use just sitting there, even if I have games on it. It just depends on the individual.

When I was younger in college when the Wii released, I clamored for cash because I just had to get it. I thought "hey ill never use my game cube" so I sold it on eBay with some games.

I since had to buy a refurbished one and hunt for games on eBay because I made a knee jerk decision that benefited me only on the short term. Never again.

making it worse is the fact that you get $150 no matter how much is on the harddrive- it gets wiped regardless. That's basically throwing out money. I'd rather give/sell it to a close friend or sibling who could actually benefit from those games.
