wow, $200 for an OG Xbone if you buy an X

Makes it really tempting for me to trade my OG One for a One X, but I am already buying that Spider-Man PS4 Pro and would prefer a promo towards that. Still tempted if I can manage to come up with some extra cash.

Anyone who is doing the deal towards an xbox can also get a free game with it as stated in the ad from 8/10-8/18.

Sadly I don't even know what game I would get that I don't already have on PS4. The lack of exclusive games has been what has prevented me from upgrading to a One X earlier.

I've always been a Nintendo/PlayStation guy and the only appeal of the X1X for me would be to see how well old original xbox games run on it... and to finally play Cuphead.

I've always loved the Xbox platform myself and even used to work for a small gaming site reviewing Xbox games specifically. The Xbox One just hasn't had very many must-play exclusives. I bought my system with the Sunset Overdrive bundle and that game remains one of my favorites for the entire system, but there hasn't been much since and while Cuphead is an amazing game, it's not something I feel like I need to play in 4K on a One X so it makes upgrading even with this deal hard to do since I will still have to spend over $300 to get a One X.

That trade in value for OG one is very tempting on my end, though wonder if worth it to head over since the top of the case got some scratches on it, any idea how bad of a refurb fee I'd get nailed with for that kinda cosmetic damage?

We Happy Few releases on the 10th. Great option as the free game if tapping into the Xbox One X deal.

I was going to wait for a good trade in deal for my PS4 Pro to go towards the Spider Man edition. Supposedly new PS4 Pro systems are very hard to find at the moment. If true, might be easier to just sell my system for a decent price on Craigslist.

I guess it all depends on how much trade credit you have to work with. I find it easier to flip systems and turn lots of credit into cash during eBay sales than to buy small games and resell. So opportunities like this are very welcome. I do also like the idea of playing the next entries of my "top" third party series, games like Resident Evil 2 Remake or Final Fantasy 7 Remake (ha!) on the more powerful X even though I already have a PS4 Pro and Switch.

Related to the console trade in deal: does Gamestop sell factory sealed consoles, or is there a chance some employee opened and used it at home and then re-sealed it like they do sometimes with games?

I once got a resealed console (XB1S) and didn't realize it until I got home. I couldn't do an exchange because I had previously exchanged it for the resealed one. The resealed console had a bad hdd and noisy fan so I just ended up trading it in for cash at the time. When people return an unopened console, they break the seal to make sure everything is inside the box and then reseal it and sell it as new.

I've never tried it, but seems like back during the trade-in towards a switch boost. People were just getting gift receipts and returning them back at another GS.

It was a few years ago but I bought a PS3 Slim *new* from Gamestop and when I got home, it was very obvious while opening the console packaging that it had been opened before. A coupla light scratches and fingerprint smudges, before I had even touched that part. Returned it.

i know some stores started to deny gift receipts at one point during that promo.  biggest problem is $500 return will probably catch the eyes of LP, last time it was just $300

Sold a good amount of stuff. Some I've had for a while, some I just posted this afternoon because of the sale. Good deal for me.

Anyone else notice that Gamestop reverted to stickers that are harder to get off?  There were a few years where the stickers would just peel off the case.  Now I have to use goo gone on each one

I was rather hoping for a trade in promo like this towards the PS4 Pro...hopefully it will happen before the Spiderman PS4 Pro drops. I have an Xbox One S 1 TB...they did a promo a month or so ago where I could have gotten $250 towards a Switch.

It's gotta be the PS4's turn next. Or is PS4 just selling too well? As if Nintendo isn't...so it's gotta be Sony next.


Pro is pretty much sold out nationwide new until the Spider-Man units are out.

Im pretty sure earlier this week I saw something on the GS Reddit page that said they were going back to the old stickers that we're easier to pull off.

From what I was told a new marketing period starts on August 12th, so if there is going to be a promo for trading towards the Spider-Man Pro bundle it'll probably start then.

 

I've got my OG PS4 on Offer Up now and have had some offers, but if Gamestop offers a promotion where I can get at least $200 for it then I will just trade it there.

It popped back up on Amazon earlier this week. I'm more concerned that the standard version of the game is nowhere to be found on Amazon. :-k

As consolation, the 500 Millionth Limited Edition PS4 Pro 2TB console should be available starting August 24th, barring any pre-order shenanigans.  Does the bonus hdd space, camera, console stand, custom translucent casing and actual limited stock offset the $100 difference (not counting the game, as well)....hard to decide, though.

 

EDIT : Spider-Man Pro is still readily available for pre-order on Best Buy's Website

Doesn't Amazon have some weird deal where you can't pre-order Sony first-party games?
