Mine says it will be here Wednesday by end of day. Guess I have to hurry up and trade in my OG Xbox One to Gamestop by tomorrow.

Weekly ad says offers are valid 10/31 - 11/06. So who knows if it goes up on Wednesday or comes down, I'd like to see an advance ad scan tomorrow but I'm not sure if those come out ahead of time regularly.

Now another stupid question... lol. (I don't go to SD)

Does the physical RDR2 in the bundle come with the pre-order dlc code?

I have an email mentioning the Battlefield V bundle that trade value goes through 11/11, but who knows. Subject was "This is a bundle worth fighting for".

Looks like I'll be receiving my Xbox tomorrow! It was originally slated for Wednesday. I need to tell my friend about that trade in offer.

I got my order yesterday; just to confirm, Red Dead Redemption II is a physical copy. Hoping to sell both games.

Same. I know Red Dead is eventually going to receive a GOTY/Complete Edition, and I refuse to play NBA 2K games or any future basketball series. They're not with my time and frustration.

Posted my NBA in the trading forum... This is a more reputable place to get rid of codes than ebay. But yeah, RDR2 is a physical copy. Not sure why anyone thought it wouldn't be, tbh, since it's clearly an NBA Xone SKU.

I figured it would be physical, but there was zero mention of it in the ad... so was curious.

So was the pre-order code in the box? (another reason I wanted to know)

Not sure, I'm selling mine. I already have it on PS4 and I'm too far in to restart. I would guess it does, I'm pretty sure all launch copies have them.

I'm not opening the game that was packaged in with this bundle as I intend to sell it, but I preordered RDR2 SE at Best Buy the day before it came out and the copy I got had the preorder code packed in with the other codes in the game case.  There are no markings on the box that it is a preorder copy either so I'm guessing the preorder code is just packed in to all early printed copies like is often done with day one editions and some other preorder bonus games.

I got mine today and the RDR2 copy has the War Horse and the Outlaw Survival Kit code inside.

So what are the best offers for a first gen Xbox One? I figure I'll transfer my content (I have the CODAW edition which already had the 1TB in it) but selling and shipping the console seems tough

Sell it locally. GameStop is/was offering $125 for it. I listed my OG Xbox One w/Kinect and new Microsoft Controller for $250. I received a ton of responses, but I ultimately sold the Xbox without the Kinect for $200. I delivered it, but the buyer was ten minutes away or so. I still need to sell off the Kinect because I can't use it without the Microsoft Adapter. I sold my Xbox One via Facebook Marketplace, but you should list it on Offer Up and LetGo as well. Good luck! If you're adding anything to it, I would list it at $180-$200.

You did great. I posted my xbox one s (limited edition blue) for $250, with limited edition halo 5, gears of war 4, sealed copies of ryse, sunset overdrive, dark souls 3 and pes 2016. The most I was able to get was 220. I received a ton of offers, but they were all under 200.

Must be the region

Thanks! I'm surprised it went so fast. It was in like new condition as well. I knew the buyer was interested because he asked for videos of the unit turning on and working. I think the brand new controller helped as well because I paid $35 for it a long time ago. Just never opened it. I was going to post games with mine, but I wanted to see if I could sell them without. I also sold my copy of Red Dead for $55 last night so I'm still $105 in the hole. I'm more than happy to update to the Xbox One X for $105.

I just got mine (one x) right now.

A little off topic, but some input is greatly appreciated. I am thinking about getting a new pc or laptop (in need of one). Knowing that all of the xbox exclusives are now on pc, as well as their streaming service, is tempting me to sell the one x and just upgrade to a gaming set up.

How much money would I need to get an equivalent desktop or laptop?

By locally did you sell via Craigslist, eBay local, or FB Local? I don't sell much stuff so I'm not sure which sites/apps are best to sell stuff

No worries. I always post my listings on Craigslist, LetGo, and Facebook. My Xbox and Red Dead sold through Facebook marketplace. If they're free, I'll post my items. I haven't used OfferUp, but that's another option.

Edit: I decided to keep my controller. It'll be nice having a third Bluetooth controller that I can use for my emulators, PC, or the Switch. I just need to sell off NBA 2K19.

Will 100% depend on what you want.
Consoles are much cheaper than the “equivalent” pc. I build my pc’s, so thats another thing to consider to save money, my current pc is a few years old and was built before 4k was as “cheap” as it is now. Still spent about $1k on it, id have to spend at least 2-300 more to be able to do VR or more for 4k. Not to mention my monitor is only 1080p anyway.
Cost is a big factor between console and pc, odds are you will spend a lot more to get same results as an X. Remember that MS generally loses money on the console, they make the money on the games. (At least thats how it used to be)

Figure $1k+ (have not looked at build prices recently but thats a start, could be less. But i highly doubt sub $500 for X performance) if you just want 1080p performance on a pc.. you could probably do it much cheaper.

So all depends, there is no set in stone answer. Prices fluctuate, deals pop up, depends if you have a good monitor etc already.

Also you could get into a cheap pc, or cheap build.. but how long before you need to upgrade? Best to spend more to future proof yourself as long as you can. Unless you like spending more money every year or so..

I think I will just stick to console gaming. The max I would do for a pc in the foreseeable future is $800. I would also need to upgrade my monitor, which puts me way over my budget.

Thanks for the excellent response. 👍

Thank you for the tips I will be sure to put them into action!

Also, does this XB1X deal still seem better (esp with no tax) than any of the known BF deals or has anyone spotted anything better?

You got it! It's probably the best deal you'll see for a while for the Xbox One X. You could try winning the Xbox from Taco Bell, but I wouldn't put stock into it. I don't see how anu other deal would be able to top this unless there's some crazy glitch. Good luck selling those items!

Does the Xbox game pass code that comes with this bundle work?

What's the best way to stack with the free trial and $1 30 day game pass from MS store?
