I wonder if the trade in deal for $125 is towards the 2TB only or if you can use towards the X1 S Madden Bundle on the 23rd? That's what I've set my sights on, I'm ready to get more use from my 4K tv.

Getting the Xbox One S is 100 percent pointless when Scorpio and Neo will be out next year.  Xboxone S only upscales to 4k doesnt display naitively in 4k so id say wait till PSNeo or Xbox Scorpio if u want true 4K

Fine print states that it's just a gift card not a GC + coupon that only works toward a certain sku like previous trade-in deals.

I'm considering buying one because it's the cheapest 4K  Blu-Ray player in the market.  
Not really getting one for 4k upscaled gaming.

Dang.  Any guesses as to whether or not there might be future trade-in deals for the 360?  Or did I miss that boat already?

1. Is this $125 above and beyond whatever the trade in value is already.

2. What do I do if I have a 5 tb external drive filled with games. Can I connect it to the Xbox one s and not have to download and install everything all over again?

Any idea what an Elite XB1 would be worth?

1. Basically you get a guaranteed minimum of $125 if you trade in a console that works with a power cord. If it is in good condition or you a trade it with a controller or other accessories you will get more than that.

 

2. You should be able to just plug the external drive to the new Xbox and everything will work the same after you log into your account.

I'm just curious what 'minimum $125 trade in value' means...my xbox one is in perfect condition, so what is my trade in value?

Might give 9 a chance at that price. Waited so long for it might as well
They should have released S in July or June. My hype died so now I'm saving all my GS credit for Neo or even NX

I figure I can either get a prettier Xbox One or a more powerful PS4 this year so,... The Neo will have more meaningful changes than S does so I'll wait until October so spend my credit

It's "at least" $125.  No way of knowing until the deal is active.  My guess is HDD size and whether or not you give them a controller will bring the price higher.

$125 or above, depending on hard drive space.

 

I just checked and here are today's TIV:

  • 500 GB = $84 without controller, $105 with controller  (controller implied TIV is $21)
  • 1TB = $104 without controller, $130 with controller  (controller implied TIV is $26)

Not sure why the implied value of the controller differs since they are the exact same.  The controller itself has a TIV of $17 at BB.

 

I guess the question is whether the advertised minimum $125 TIV refers to today's $84 TIV (without controller) or the $105 TIV (with controller)....

Hopefully gamestop can beat this otherwise I'll put my elite console/controller up on eBay.

Can you cancel the preorder later and just get store credit?  (I just want to get rid of my Xbox)

The bigger upgrade in video fidelity is support for HDR gaming, not 4K.  But still I'm sure Scorpio will support HDR as well.

interesting.. will keep an eye on this trade in deal.. was wondering when it was gonna come up.

 

already have my one s pre-ordered but definitely want to get something for my current xb1.

 

Anyone done these type of trade in deals before on launch of new hardware? Should I not bother preordering the console but instead just pick up in store that day if i go with best buy?

And the neo isnt supposed to support 4k gaming from the leaks. Only 4k video.

If the number gets closer to $200 it would be very tempting but realistically I have no use for the S.

Yes. I have done this several times. I wouldn't trade my Xbox 1 for $125, $145 w/controller. That said, expect to get $145 with the controller. I will hold out until I see at least $150 trade in value. $100-$125 for the console and a $50-$25 coupon for the new console. Add $25 for the 1TB versions.
I would like to see $200 cash for my console. But that's best case scenario.
If you must have the new console and don't want to sell on Craigslist or similar, preorder the new Xbox one and choose something like the Madden version. You will qualify for the $10 gift cert and can sell the Madden 17 code to help recover your out of pocket expense.

Just dust off your console and maybe rub some Meguiars Plast-X on the shiny part to help clear the scratches. I would reset the console to factory settings because, unlike GameStop, Best Buy customer service reps aren't exactly gamers and understand the importance of wiping out a persons personal information right away.

$175 would've made this tempting, but I think I'll keep my OG X1. Besides I'd rather wait for the black color to release.

So help me out, the Xbox One S is going to render games in 4K even though the Xbox One has constantly been outed as not even rendering games in 1080p?

I was thinking bc it'll be the least expensive 4K blu ray player on the market.

When are they going to update their website to reflect the Madden 17 & Halo X1 S bundle options?
