Cant edit the title so read this:
EDIT: Just went into microsoft website and found this:

For a limited time, bring in your PS3, Xbox 360 S or Xbox 360 E and receive $100 of Microsoft retail store credit.
Source: http://content.microsoftstore.com/en...-trade-console

Just got this on my email

EDIT2: Store is Microsoft aka Microsoft Store

OP: If you want $100 for your ps3, just go sell it. That's not very much.

A. I can sell it on Craigslist for more than that.

B. Why would I sell a console with tons of games to partially fund a console with barely any games.

I got $250 for my super slim with a few games.

Pretty sure you can get $100+ just for the system on craigslist.

Exactly.

Funny thing is I'd rather play either of those games than anything coming out on XBO that's been announced.

....Okay

Why would I do that?

in a Media sense go from a no pay wall experience to a payed one

in a Gaming experience if one doesn't have PS+ then I guess you could do that if the back catalogue doesn't impress you
let alone KH 2.5 HD remix and P5 are still to be released

Explain please

This is what I was thinking too. Also, without a PS3 all the games I have effectively become paperweights.

Ruthless? Wouldn't that imply there's actually an incentive here? You could keep your PS3 and buy a PS4 for the same price as an XBOne...
