    Exclamation Microsoft offers $100 Xbox One discount for 'ditching' PS3

    Valid in the US and Canada.

    Microsoft will sell you an Xbox One for $399 if you 'ditch' your 'old' PlayStation 3 (also applies to some Xbox 360 models).


    That's right, Microsoft is giving $100 store credit towards an Xbox One if you trade-in a PlayStation 3 at one of its retail stores.

    Here's what people are getting on their emails:



    Apparently, the trade-in deal is only available at Microsoft's retail stores in the US and Canada, and it applies to the PS3, Xbox 360 S, or Xbox 360 E. It will be valid between January 23rd and February 28th.

    This "offer" by M$ makes no sense

    An 'E' owner just bought the damn thing, why would they flip it for a loss on a system that can't play 360 games

    'S' owners likely will retain their consoles because of the lack of BC on the One.

    The scam is that they flip the consoles for a decent profit, and Microsoft has devalued the launch form factor 360, as far as they're concerned Arcade, Core, Pro, and Elite's aren't worth the plastic they're cased in.

    It's a better deal than what Gamestop would give.

    One funny thing is that the PS3 is a better media player than the Xbox One.

    Yeah it is my thoughts also, would the employees at at Microsoft store, know are to test a PS3?

    Plug in a video cable, reset to normal if in hdmi, check for picture, and then after that test to make sure blu-ray laser works?

    I doubt it...

    Yeah, there is thought, get rid of all your banned consoles, if you can get them cheaper then $100.
