Wow, it's like MS has a marketing budget or something. Can't believe they literally said "Ditch your PS3". So point blank. MS is all over the place.

wouldn't even be worth it if it was a straight trade across, no thanks...PS3 has more compelling software coming than XBox One imo.

So you can sell your used PS3 for $200+ I'm totally in on that just tell me where

Also as I just mentioned...the deal is not exclusively for the PS3, the same $100 discount applies if you trade in a 360

I don't think people have a problem with MS offering an exchange for an MS manufactured console.

It's the advertisement that is at question here. Pathetic and desperate sounding to me.

BestBuy did the exact same thing before launch and people were praising the deal but MS does it and it's desperation...

Getting $100 trade-in credit is a good deal when compared to other retailers offering trade-in credit.

You only get full $100 if you buy an Xbox One at the same time.

I don't see where they are going out of their way to say "Ditch your XBOX 360" in there, but OK.

Oh wow now the PS+ games this month makes sense. A bunch of good stuff is coming out and I was wondering why lol. But still, thats not good enough. Give up you're ps3 and get an xbox one for the same price as a ps4. Or keep the ps3 and buy a ps4 for the same amount. Doesn't seem like a good deal to me.

I think the uphill battle ms will face with this is:

-a lot of mainstream consumers don't upgrade to nextgen as early as we do, and...

-the PS4 is already $400, so...

-trading in their PS3 at GameStop would get them however many bucks off a $400 PS4, meaning they'd be paying less than $400 to upgrade to nextgen, or...

-they could simply keep their PS3 and buy a PS4, only costing them the same $400 as the xbone deal and they wouldn't be sacrificing their old console that still has a ton of software and support.

So I think it's a very small specific number of consumers that this applies to: they want to upgrade to nextgen right now, they want to switch from PS to Xbox or don't care, they're willing to sacrifice a large software library for a relatively small number of exclusives, and the PS4 that's already $400 standard for some reason doesn't appeal to them.

My 60gb PS3 that can run ps1, ps2 and ps3 games is worth more 100 bucks, considering it can still run my nearly 20 year old library of PS games.

They are not advertising for people to "ditch" their 360 are they? ....... not running a promotion based on ditching a competitors machine are they?


That's where it smacks of desperate.


Plenty of stupid coming from yourself it seems.

There is nothing personal for me about a US only promotion for a console yet to be released in my country.
And if I had it my way I would also been in possession of PS4, but when retailers here are charging minimum 4990 NOK (/$805) for it it's just out of the fucking question. While Xbox One import version are being sold for 4490 NOK (/$725).
