My brother is in need of an X. He ended up trading his Halo 5 themed original One for $150 with GameStop's $25 bonus promo deal. It had random disc eject issues anyway but GS never notices those things. The $200 promo was not worth it since it was only for the base X that launched last year, no bundles. This RDR2 promo does not seem worth it either, can get the special edition at Best Buy with GCU for around the same price as the standard version at GS. Now he has a $150 trade in card which will inevitably get used on the superior X bundles they'll have during Black Friday. I see it going a few ways: either a price drop like PS4 Pro last year, or a bundle with multiple games, or a combination of both. It's better to wait in this case.
Agree 100%. Waiting for Black Friday is rarely a bad thing. I find it hard to believe this deal is going to be better than any X console offer we see on BF. I'm also not a fan of 'you get this off if you buy this'. Unless you positively have to have RDR2 this week, just wait several months and get it 50% off and buy the console on your own terms, when the deal is right.
