You're good with those three I bolded. Definitely at the very least delete your profile from the console.

Yeah, I did that and just got back.

 

The console wasn't updated so I had to return home and update it.  Their 'net is too slow to do in store. 

 

Also, they insert a game to install, so it's a double-check in case you forget a game in the drive.

 

Last thing, the regular Xbox One X gets a PUBG code printed on the receipt.  So it doesn't matter which version you get, you get both.  Just depends whether you want to open the console for it or not...

They do, plenty of games look damn impressive on the One X. I already have Forza Horizon 3 and Gears 4 though and I am not playing them on my Xbox One now so they aren't convincing me to dive into the One X yet. 

 

I am definitely going to get a One X, but I am waiting for a good trade-in deal and a possible bundle or price drop. If the One X were $400 for example, I'd be trading my OG Xbox One in today for $200 and leaving Gamestop with a One X.

When the price drops (this promo could mean a price drop isn't far off), this trade promo won't return. I have an XB1S now. I can get $250 now or hope the XB1S TiV doesn't drop after GS is flooded with used consoles from this deal when the XB1X hits $400. Even then, it would still be a worse deal for me than this current offer, which boosts my XB1S' TiV $130.

 

You have an OG trades in for $90 (500 GB) or $110 (1 TB). This deal raises the TiV to $200. You might end up $10 ahead if you can get an XB1X for $400 later and trade a 1 TB OG for $110. About a bundle, you DO get a free game with XB1 purchase at GameStop, from 8/10-8/18. Reddit claims employees have said the trade and free game stack. Some were told to come back with a receipt once the promo starts to get the free game from other trades on this promo. You also can get PUBG free with your XB1X purchase now, so you get TWO free games and a price comparable to what you're aiming, thanks to the trade boost.

 

If you already know you want an XB1X, I don't see why you wouldn't get in on this. The OG TiV might drop when the XB1X price drops. I  haven't turned on my XB1S in 6+ months, but this is such a good deal that because I want to use an XB1X in the future, I'm probably going to buy in now, once I confirm the free game stacks tomorrow. I've got a friend doing the same--doesn't play his XB1X, but probably getting in on this because...well, when are we going to get anything better? I just don't see it happening. The best-case, IMO, is a comparable deal with a game you maybe like more.

Just got back from gamestop sold my white pro for   $250 cash . I'll take the $50  loss to not have to pay full retail for xb1x. Also at most,private party i would be looking at $300 and having to deal with dipshits from offerup and craigslist or fleabay

Anyone tried trading one of these systems towards the NBA2k19 X1X preorder?  And if it does work can I say trade my OG X1 towards the preorder and then trade my OG PS4 towards my preorder later?

No go on preordering X1X NBA2K19 system and getting bonus. I actually convinced myself to really keep the system too, not just a trade booster.

Any thoughts on trading in a launch X1 for a X1X? Please note I already own:
*Batman Limited Edition PS4
*PS4 Pro
*GoW4 X1S

Was thinking $200 doesn’t sound bad to get off of a 5+ year old system and future-proof (at least as much as one can) . Thanks in advance ladies/gents...

If you were planning on keeping the Xbox 1 x then just wait until near the end of the promo (the 28th I believe) then trade towards a regular xb1x and keep it sealed then swap it out for the 2k edition when it releases, you would be in the 30 day return period and you're just swapping it for an equally priced item so nobody would be upset.

That sucks it didn't work though.

Why trade your PS4 pro? Besides the exclusives, is there any other reason to now own either a PS4 pro or Xbox one x knowing that the new consoles coming out in 2020?

Every year there is something new and every year their is nothing to support the "new" tech lol. Just my 2 cents, two years from now 8k might be out. Then take another year to adopt a certified 8k which makes the the first 8k trash..Then another year to get the media for it etc etc. Live in the moment and get whats out. Im shooting towards new tcl 6 series 65". Last year i waited the whole year for the 55" to go on sale but it never did. So im not making the same mistake this year.

Traded in my S for a X (pubg), and got Madden!
The deal wouldn’t work on my ps4 so I kept it. And I also was trading in a PS3 that I thought was in good shape but it apparently can’t play disc, luckily I like in a city that gets the 50% instead of cash and was able to trade in the ps3 controller for almost as much as I would have got for the console!

Edit: my controller is kinda messed up do I need to contact Microsoft or GameStop?

Traded in xbox one s for X PUBG and madden. It was nice to have the free game to sweeten the deal, though I may try to trade in madden where ever TIV is the most. I didn't have time to check if any other games would give more value.

Mind if I ask why it didn't work on PS4?  Can you not get the bonus on two consoles at the same time?

From what people have said on reddit, it's one console per tier so you could stack a Xbox One ($200) and a PS4 ($250), but not a Xbox One S and PS4 (both $250).

$200 is way more than you’ll ever get for a standard VCR now (the Forza/Halo ones MIGHT retain that value with all original packaging & controller.) The power bricks are failing & MS quit making them so the only ones available are Chinese knockoffs that disconnect if you breathe on them.

I would say get the X & once you play on one you might be looking to sell the Gears system, the difference is legit. Also if you do it this week at GameStop you get 2 free games (PUBG Code plus any $60 or less new XB1 disc game.)
