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

This, plus it state that "Systems with External hard drives are not eligible to receive the promotional value". So I'm pretty sure the fat one is not eligible. You could went to best buy as you could have a better luck.

I literally just checked the promotion rules and was about to update my post mentioning that external drives are not eligible. I guess Gamestop knew people would try to pull a fast one and use some loophole to slip past the intended trade-in, so they made sure to elimnate old fat 360s from the start

So, that's what they ment by external drives. I guess I will hang onto mt 360.

Plus, the only store with an Xbone is the local Walmart. I will just have to buy it at full price.

GS is a better deal, and I dont want to beat a dead horse, but its been posted you can trade in the old fat 360 at microsoft for $100 +50gc, in store or online, Im headed out today to do just that:

Does anyone know if all 360 games will eventually be compatible with the Xbox One? I can't seem to find info on that online.

 

I have a 360 with a 320 gb hard drive that I installed (MS brand intended for the 360), can I still trade mine in? Or is this what they mean by "external hard drives"? 

 

Edit: Mine is installed within the console, I am assuming by external it is the old ones where it is literally on the outside...phew.

During the promo at the end of march the "external drive not eligible" line was not in the promo.  People did argue their way into trading in fat 360s with external hard drives, but the language changed half way through the promo.

Sooo.. an older, fatty PS3 upgraded with a new 500gb internal. Will that still get the $150 or do they go with the model number?

i forgot about that promotion. I'll call my local Microsoft Store and see if they have any white Xboxes. They've been impossible to find. Only Walmart has them.

The 7th Number

Posted 22 June 2015 - 03:38 PM

Hmm i already had Batman AK reserved with 30 dollars down for PS4. Do you think they would let me trade in my Gears of War Xbox 360, and use that 30 down on batman towards the xbox one with the free game being batman for PS4? I think it would end up 190 out of pocket if they used the 30 i put down on Batman AK.

 

Also i dont see any white X1 on the website, not sure if they have them in store. I just dont want to be scammed into thinking im getting a new X1 when its used and repackaged. Dont really deal with gamestop really, so idk.

Waiting for confirmation that we can actually trade in one of each console. I have a PS3 and Xbox 360 that haven't been touched in close to a year. If so, I'm headed to the nearest GameStop ASAP.

Got my $150 for my Gears 3 console and my free Witcher 3 game when I picked up my LE White Master Chief Collection One - all for less than $40 out of pocket in the end.

It's an LG soundbar connected to a 50 inch LG tv, so I only need to use the soundbar remote to control it and the tv. Also came with a wireless sub that works fantastic

 

And once I got the Wii U 8gb on clearence a few months back and won a white PS4 from Taco Bell, I wouldn't get anything other than a white Xbox One to match

GS had them as a web-in-store purchase w/1 year of Gold for $390 last week.

Do I have to buy the new console immediately to avail myself of this deal? I'd like to trade in my PS3 for $150, but I can't buy a PS4 for a few more months.

Its trade in towards the purchase of a new console, so it has to be in the same transaction

Ok, I figured as much. Oh well. I may try to move the PS3 on ebay then. The regular trade in value for PS3 is absurd, just $50.

I've got 2 2nd gen 160 gb playstation 3s to trade. So I could possibly get $150 for each?

Has anyone succesfully return a new system for the $150 credit

Did it this morning.  Traded in a 360 and ps3 and purchased the Halo MCC bundle (white).  They gave me an extra $2.75 for the headset that came with the 360.  I didn't personally trade in 2 of the same system, but the person working was confident it would work.  Also got ESO for free and walked over to best buy and traded it in for $42.

 

Gonna give Dennis an A+ survey.  He held the white console for me and basically told me how things would stack in the computer and even mentioned the free game to me before I brought it up.  He wasn't sure if any game was free or only XB1 games were free so he was going to try and ring up Slatoon as the free game, but they had sold out.  I would have kept Splatoon, but I told him to just give me ESO since I was planning on trading it in anyway.

Slim PS3? I'm waiting to hear if anyone has luck trading a fatty PS3 w/ a larger HDD.

Man...

 

 

I do wish one of these companies would hold the TIV on a gift card of some sort....

 

 

Would be nice for those of us that are perfectly cool with trading in our old system, but can't afford the cost difference to move up to a new system just yet...

 

This buying that day or within the week is just a killer....

If you have the money to cover the cost of it initially, buy it and return it.  You'll get the $150 back in credit and the rest back in whatever form you paid with.

 I did trade in a super slim.  Take this for what it's worth since I didn't do it, but when they scan the fat systems the price wont bump up automatically.  Some people have reported that they got a manager override during the last promotion, but no one has said that this promotion.  The only thing you can do is take in your system and give it a shot, you might get lucky.

"Its just $150" may work for some, but getting married in short order so "disposable income" is not a term I'm familiar with right now
