With the new Xbox consoles arriving this fall, GameStop is offering a trade-in deal on current-gen-systems towards the Series X and Series S.
With the next-gen consoles on the horizon for release this holiday season, Microsoft and Sony have finally begun to reveal when their new systems will be arriving and for how much. While Sony is expected to share more details this week at its upcoming showcase, Microsoft has revealed that the Xbox Series X and Series S will launch on November 10, 2020 at $499 and $299, respectively. To make the transition a little easier on the wallets of consumers, GameStop is offering a trade-in deal for those looking to jump into next-gen.
GameStop has revealed that it will be offering up to $200 trade-in values on current-gen systems towards the pre-order of an Xbox Series X or Series S. In an email to customers, the trade-in offer applies across Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch consoles, with the full trade-in offer detailed below:
At the moment the offer is solely for the Xbox Series X and Series S, with GameStop not having confirmed a similar trade-in deal yet for the PS5. However, once Sony announces the official price and release date for the PS5, it’s safe to assume that the retailer will likely extend a similar trade-in deal for those that want to apply credit towards either of the new systems.
Aside from GameStop’s trade-in deal towards the new systems, Microsoft also recently revealed new details on Xbox All Access, its financing plan towards the purchase of either the Xbox Series X or Series S. The plan currently offers $35/month payments towards the Series X and $25/month towards the Series S, with both options contracted for 24 months. Additionally, each plan also offers 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, making for an enticing option for those that want to pay off their console purchases monthly instead of all at once.
