Microsoft is full throttle trying to make Xbox One the best-selling console and to make things a bit more interesting, the company is currently offering $100 when trading in your used PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360; store credit you can use to purchase an Xbox One. The promotional offer is only available for customers located in United States and you can only bring your Xbox 360 S, Xbox 360 E, or PS3.
Although, Xbox One doesn’t play Xbox 360 games, if you’re ready to let go, the new trade-in will lower the price of a new Xbox One to $399, which of course comes bundled with the Kinect sensor, leveling the price to a PlayStation 4. Keep in mind that the trade-in program isn’t permanent, this is a limited time offer from January 22nd through March 2nd, 2014.
The news was first spotted at NeoGAF forum where a few users posted a screenshot of an email from Microsoft reading: “Ditch your PS3 and get $100 store credit towards Xbox One — Here’s how: Visit your store, let us recycle your PS3, and get $100 of store credit towards the purchase of a new Xbox One.”
