Saw this from inviz in the GameStop promo thread and also on SD. So far only wording is in the press announcement so no terms yet, but probably similar to the last $175 trade in deal.

"For customers looking to upgrade to the next generation of gaming consoles, for less money out of pocket, starting Monday, June 22, they can trade their Xbox 360 (250GB and greater) or PlayStation 3 (120GB and greater) and get up to $150 credit toward the purchase of a new Xbox One or PlayStation 4 system."

FAQ

Everything in this faq is YMMV because it is really up to the employee ringing up the trade.

Q: can you trade in more than one console toward a system?
A: The POS allows it (yes it will allow two of the same system), but it depends on if the employee will do the trade for you. When you trade in your system(s) the regular trade in value will show on the register. After the :xb1: or :ps4: is scanned then trade values are bumped up to $150 each.

Q: Can I trade in my fat ps3/360?
A: The wording of the promo states that it can't be an external hard drive. The fat 360s dont have internal hard drives greater than 160gb (?) so they are out. You can replace the hard drive on a fat ps3, but the values are not automatically bumped to $150 (maybe because they didn't make any fat 120gb+ models). You can always try to get a manager to override, so YMMV.

Q: Can I trade in a 4GB slim upgraded with a 250gb+ hard drive?
A: Yes. It is an internal hard drive that is equal or greater than 250gb. People in this thread have had success getting the trade in to work this way.

Q: What do I need to trade in my ps3/360?
A: I can't find any terms and conditions about console trade in so I will go by what I was told at the store. A 360 needs the console/controller/power cable/av cable (standard or hdmi). A ps3 needs the same along with the controller charge cable. Again, I can't find this in writing so I'm going by what was told to me.

If the deal works like last time, you can trade one PS3 and one Xbox, but not 2 of each. That's how it worked the prior 2 times.

No.

Ugh.  I have 3 PS3s I want to somehow convert into a PS4.  What's the best way?  I have a 40GB fatty, a 160GB slim (NIB) and (I think) a 120GB slim.

Like I said above, I have not seen terms and conditions so we don't know the answer to this question yet, but last time they ran a similar promo people were able to stack multiple consoles to get stacked credit on a single new system.

just trade, buy and return. youll get the trade in credit even if you return the system.

I think the advantage with GS is if you wanted to return the new console you bought you could do so and get the $150 back as credit vs BBY where you've got a coupon involved.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong-with BB You DONT have to trade in a controller, but at GameStop you DO need to give them a controller with system trade in. That right?

This stacks with the free game with any XB1 purchase or the PS4 Batman bundle making it better than the BBY deal in my opinion.

Found a 250gb Slim 360 and three stacks of games today for $40, gonna take that thing to GS and get a XB1. Seems like a good deal. Gotta decide on the $350 or $400 bundle, probably leaning towards the old one.

Honestly, I'd much prefer dealing with Gamestop than Best Buy anyway. Every single time I go into BB to do something like Price Match, they give me the runaround why they won't PM Target or Toys R Us or some bullshit on why a trade in isn't accepted. Gamestop's trade-in policy is clear cut and that's how they make their money so they are less of douchebags in that sense

Let's not forget to mention that Gamestop accepts 250GB OR LARGER for the trade in deal. Best Buy were asshols saying only the 250GB was accepted. You know BB is a jackass company when Gamestop is doing a better job at the same promotion than them

I hope this holds true because I don't wanna drive 40 miles one way to BestBuy, with their deal expiring today...

Guess i'll go with this deal since BB turned me down on the GOW console. Works out better too since i have gift cards I can use for this.

I found a good deal for a 320gb PS3 on Craigslist and might trade my old one in and keep that one. The old one is 250gb. I have a $100 GC and I think $90-$100 on credit. I still can't decide between an X1 and PS4. If I go with the 1TB X1/PS4, it will be $60. If I go with 500gb X1, I can get it.

I haven't seen it confirmed for GameStop, but this is for "select" retailers.

Thanks! 

 

Added an Xbox One and The Witcher III to my cart, and it gave me the free game. Proof in the spoiler below
