In Topic: Best Buy Ad 7/31-8/6: Get $125 toward Xbox One S with XB1/PS4 trade-in

Really only 125 for a PS4 and Xbox one is a good deal

Yeah, I was thinking that's not even all that good for the "regular" trade-in price - I thought the deal would have been $125 EXTRA towards the upgrade (assuming their standard trade in is lousy - so on an XB1 to upgrade maybe $85+125=$210). But just a flat out $125 minimum trade in? LOL NO.

 

I guess there was lots of deals on PS4/XB1 which have lowered the value dramatically, but still... it was only 12 months ago I got $180 for my Xbox 360 towards a PS4. No, I don't think we've seen one of those deals on the PS3/360 gen - possibly since almost a year ago (but they were pretty common for awhile). $125 for one of the newer consoles seems like a joke, I hope you get alot more than that for PS4, otherwise not only is it not a "deal" - it's a complete ripoff. It's not as bad on XB1 straight up, but a trade-promo should be at least $175 IMO.

Is there a way to tell in brickseek if this works on the special offer? I see some of them say (100% off) when i click on the blue info button next to the price. Is that 100% off indicative of the promo?

 

Other games  have other discounts, like 33% off or 50% off - and a few of the games mention nothing at all. Lego The Movie game for instance shows $9.99 and 50% off. I wonder if that means there is another promo for that game which would exclude it from the B1G2 promo?

 

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 shows up for me $19.99 (100%) - and that is a game I'd definitely want.  Unfortunately there is not much else. Could I just get 3 copies of Kingdom Hearts and sell the other two? How likely would that be to work?

Did Uncharted $25 disappear?  :wall:

 

I was waiting to order that one because I needed to roll a gift card... but it seems the $25 no longer applies to Uncharted 4... unless I"m missing something here.

Can confirm PM + cartwheel on the PS TV just worked for me. Now to get Persona 4 Golden.

So what was the  final price of that PS TV? $20? $25?

 

I already have a Vita, and Persona 4 Golden... haven't played it yet. Honestly I'd rather play that on a television, if I can do so for that cheap I guess that's the way to go. Hopefully my target still has some Vita TV stock.

I know. My console won't read discs anymore, so I thought about just buying a new one, but only to see they sell for the same they did 3 years ago when I bought it. Forget that. I bet half the cost is in the dang gamepad anyway.

Yeah, I never bought a Wii-U on the principal of the thing. Based on the hardware, it should have been about $199 a long time ago - at least during the holidays (i.e the $199 holiday bundles the PS3 and 360 started haivng like 5-6 years ago). The fact that it's almost the same as XB1 and PS4 nowadays is just pure comedy.

 

I wouldn't mind grabbing one when it's cleared out though. I got my gamecube for $99 at the end of it's life and more than justified it's purchase. I'm not even sure $199 would be good enough for me to bother with Wii-U now, I'm just hoping I get lucky and score one in clearance for $100-150. The problem I'm anticipating, is it might be so low volume that when it's discontinued, a "clearance" score might be tough to find (i.e. the systems might just disappear and that's the end of it). At least unless Nintendo does some big nationwide surge like with Gamecube.
