Gosh. $150 is still pretty nice, especially when you can trade in 1-3 systems towards the same PS4 and get all the credit back with a return if need be. Hmmm...not sure if I should stick with BestBuy or go to GameStop for this Batman edition PS4. To complicate matters, I'm trying to get my brother an XB1 + an extra controller. Then, I've already got systems traded in at BestBuy towards the PS4 and XB1 (BB manager voucher for the $75 PS4 coupon, and a return with gift receipt/rebuy situation for the XB1). This may not end well.

Can I trade in a fat white 360 w/ 250 GB hd if for this?

I'm wondering the same thing. I have the Modern Warfare 2 250GB fat 360. Best Buy was sold out of white Xbones so I'm still stuck with the 360.

First off, SORRY for not checking the forum enough. Second, I thought it was just towards the Xbox One because i just only saw that thread. Third, I'm on vacation and I have not been home in the past two weeks.

Why are you so defensive? Enjoy your vacation and leave these sales behind.

Ok I am currently transferring all my saves from my 360 to cloud and a usb drive.

 

So I should be able to trade in my 360 (250gb) and my PS3 (slim 120gb) and get $300 towards a new Xbox One 1TB with Halo Master Chief Collection plus get a free game?

 

This will be the first time ever I will own two of the same systems as one of the Xbox One's will act as our main media hub (Blu-rays, Plex, HBO go etc..) and the other Xbox One will be in my man cave.

 

Would there be any issues playing games with save files if I chose to play the game either in living room or man cave?

So would this work 1 ps3 and 1 Xbox360 towards a Xbox one system and 1 ps3 and 1 Xbox360 towards a ps4 

I don't see why not.

No, all of your saves for XBO will be in the cloud. You can sign in between the two consoles as needed.

 

One other tip, if you have 2 XBL accounts, make yours the home xbox of the other, and vice versa. You can share a digital license between the two systems. For example, my GF and I both have XBO. I made my "Home" Xbox hers, and she made her "Home" Xbox mine. So when I purchase a digital game, she gets a copy automatically to her system as it thinks that is my home system.

 

We are also able to play co-op online with the one digital copy as well. Saves a ton of money instead of buying two copies of the game.

Gamestop went live with the "Buy a new One, get a free game" promotion like Amazon and Best Buy

I have a like new complete in box (both controllers) silver limited edition halo reach 360. I let my live run out other day but am considering getting a XB1 master chief bundle with this trade deal. 1st of all I'm wondering if it would be better just to put an old white 360 controller with the console and hookups and if I'd still get $150? This way I could sell the 2 controllers and box and stuff separate online. I can't come out getting just $150 for this nice console but if I split the stuff up I think I can get over $200 for it this way to put towards a one. I'm thinking now is the time to part with it since XB1 is getting backwards compatibility. I have a huge library of 360 games but am a bit worried that microsoft won't ever make them all compatible. Any suggestions on this? Will gamestop do the $150 without the matching controller? Thanks.

Remember its "Up to $150" not a guaranteed $150.

Thats a lot of money just for a media / bluray player. Get a Chromecast and a non-internet bluray player. Save yourself $300.

they just don't want to share the xbox one playtime when their sibling or children at the same time. it is better off having one of their own, instead of taking turns

So I want to get rid of my 360, but I don't want a new console. What's the best way to do this? Trade in towards a console and just tell them I'm gonna return? Or should I take it home and return it a different day?

So i guess I couldn't trade in a 360 for the $150 credit and not get a ps4 or xbone?

Does GS require controller and AV cables or can you get by with just the system and power cord like at Best Buy?

just an FYI if ya didn't know already, but your X1 should be able to stream to a windows 10 device when it comes out next month (free upgrade for most, btw)

I'm so ready to have an Xbox One. Got my 360 wiped, saves backed up and my entertainment center cleared out for the giant box.

Obviously, I'm going with the White One

Hmmm. Did anyone catch this wording from the original link?

"For the value minded gamer, starting Monday, June 22, customers can purchase an original Xbox 360 for only $59.99 (after $40 mail in rebate)."

So, if you didn't have a trade, could you buy this for $99 (get $40 back by rebate) and then trade in for the $150 credit?

Thanks, added to the OP.  Interesting, it says it can't be combined with any other offer, but the picture shows the xbox one free game deal.

According to the ad, I don't see anything that excludes a fat 250GB 360.

Don't quote me on this, but for Fat 360s, I think gamestop takes the system and HDD seperately
