I think you can get around $125 on Amazon also, no? I have a 500GB I wanna trade in and also an Elite 1TB without the Elite controller. Wonder how much more they will offer for the Elite?

So you are not required to purchase an S after the trade in right? I really wamt to wait for the limited edition Gears 4 S console. Thanks.

If its like the previous promos, you get 50 in GC and 75 in coupon towards :xb1: S - to be redeemed within a week.

So yes, you are required to buy an S or lose the 75.

Sounds correct. They do the same with IPads.

Earlier in the thread Tyrok said the $125 would be on a gift card, no coupon.

My two cents...

 

Always possible, and while I hope I'm wrong I'd say $125 without a controller is solid at this point; I'd jump if I could get that when the Gears X1S arrives. My personal thought is that time is money, so any downtime without an X1 such as waiting for the new one next year is still money lost. Given what X1 sells for currently $125 is a solid offer to trade up.

Here's hoping they keep this going or another arrives because I need that Gears console.

I'm going to wait on the new model as much as I would like it. I'm sure like the controllers we'll probaly be able to customize our consoles as well. Worse case the new model in black will be holiday bound or some new special editions. Is not my choice or my judgement if people want to give away their "old" xbox ones but what's a few extra months? Black Friday rumors will be here soon enough. I'm a betting man as I lounged in Vegas for past 6 years. I bet free customized controller will be one of the many deals. The Xbox 360 is still in mass #s and Microsoft knows "this" holiday season is when they get people to finally upgrade.

I was implying that you can trade in next week for the $125 gift card and then hold onto it until the Gears X1 releases, assuming what Tyrok posted is correct.

I don't think 125 is bad without a remote. I'm a try and put it on CL but last time I put an xbone on there I got no replys. I do have a white one now which might interest people but I think most want the slims if they're getting a new one. I'm a wait till the end of this promo to decide.

I'm looking to get a new controller but at this point I might as well trade in my X1 with all these deals.

Maybe there's a better X1 deal later this year. I'd like to think so. I have a feeling there will be as this one is for the can't wait early adopters. If you have a 500gb and looking to upgrade, $125 isn't the worst you can do. However, GameStop gave $250 last year for any model, will there be a similar deal?

So you don't need to include your controller? They've always asked me whenever I've done a console trade in at BB

No you dont need to include the controller...or, you can and they'd give you the then tiv for the controller. Its optional.

Apples and Oranges : Pawn shops exist on the exact convenience you're neglecting to account.
If you want to takes pics, post and ad, wait for replies, decide on a buyer, set up a location, spend time/money/gas to meet, then secure funds then you have that option; If you want to walk in a building, hand over your Xbox One and get some credit for a new one, $125 (+ with a controller) is a solid offer. Very solid.

Will probably pick up The Killing Joke as I want to see it and as bad as Mighty No. 9 is I am somewhat tempted to pick it up for that price. I also am half tempted to trade my XB1 in for the S because I am very interested in 4K Blu-Ray as there aren't a lot of options for us 4K TV owners right now and this is the cheapest 4K player on the market right now. I think I'll keep my white Xbox One and wait for the Scorpio though.

Whats the best place to trade in the controller? Best Buy's website lists a TIV of $17. Gamestop is $26. $26 is not bad for a used controller it seems.

Is that for ransoms like me or is that their "PUR?" Members price?

PUR price. Without is $22 I believe. Which is still better than Best Buy and Amazon.

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


Aye, and with all future MS games coming to PC I have no reason to get a Scorpio anyway. I'll pick up a Xone S on the cheap after a while for the 4K BR/backwards compatibility stuff. I think I've played a total of like 5 actual Xone games on mine.

I got 31.85 for my lunar xbone controller when pre ordering towards no mans and the normal 10% pur bonus so I think the base is still higher in store than on the site/app.

Gamestop  $150  towards Xbox One S*

 

http://www.gamestop....ade#tradeupxb1s

 

 

 

 

* Select Systems

 

 

I have the 1Tb Tombraider Bundle which sells new $299 at BestBuy

http://www.bestbuy.c...7&skuId=4512300

 

Damn shame I can't get at least $200 for it...... I paid $400 for it 2015 Christmas $350 + tax, now they have INSANE deals on Xbox One.

 

Realistically though it makes no sense for me to upgrade to a new Xbox One, unless I really want HDR. I will just wait for the Scorpio, now for future buyers the new Xbox One S is great, but for those that already own an Xbox One, not so.

 

I can stream 4k through my TV with services like Amazon, Netflix and Vudu.

 

I'll wait till Digital Foundry runs some tests on the Xbox One S and see if there is ANY performance increase in games, and if so I may sing a different tune.....
