GameStop Holding Xbox One Sale Starting Tomorrow

Xbox One event runs June 27-28 at all US stores and offers 50% bonus credit for all systems traded toward purchase of a new console.

Retailer GameStop has announced a special two-day sale focused around Microsoft's Xbox One. Running June 27-28 at all GameStop stores in the United States, the sale sees markdowns on Xbox Live subscriptions and controllers, as well as trade-in bonuses if you're in the market for a console.

First, any system traded in toward the purchase of a new Xbox One will receive a 50 percent bonus trade-in credit. According to GameStop's latest feature trade values chart, an Xbox 360 S system will net you $75 (meaning $112 with the bonus applied), while a 500GB PlayStation 3 K Model normally trades in for $80, but with the bonus should be around $120. Going off those numbers, you could potentially pick up an Xbox One for around $280 if you're applying trades toward the new $399 Xbox One model.

If you decide to buy a new Xbox One, you'll get $20 off a 12-month Xbox Live subscription ($40) and $10 off a wireless controller ($50). Below are some other Xbox One-focused deals available at GameStop this weekend.

The Xbox One is lagging behind Sony's PlayStation 4 currently in terms of worldwide sales, but Microsoft reminds us that we're only about 10 percent into this console generation and a lot could change. Just today, Microsoft boasted that the Xbox One has the best exclusives, new franchises, and multiplayer community, going on to say that "it's more fun on Xbox One."

Gamestop advertising being propped up as actual news.

I don't see the sale anywhere. Amazon has the controller at $50 since so long. Gamestop always deceiving and ripping off costumers

the kinectless x1 mustnt be selling like they wanted,if it couldnt sell at the same price as ps4 with kinect and titanfall why did they think the x1 by itself would sell great

Not sure how it will sell.  I figured those who wanted an X1 got it with that Titanfall bundle.

Seems like everyone is trying to flog them.


In the UK this week I've seen Zavvi selling an Xbox One including Kinect for £329.99.  That's cheaper than a free hooker.

Xbox one wouldn't have to lower its prices if it had the best exclusives. Microsoft is worried. Everything they are doing is reactive for fear if losing market share.

So were they planning on reselling all the 360s to the military people with no Internet connection?

When Wii U sold poorly they did no such thing, but with Xbox One sitting in their stores they do something like this...LOL.

I would do this if it were backwards compatible...why turn in my Xbox 360 if I can never play my 360 games again?

Let's see if I want to trade in my systems:


PS4: More powerful than Xbox One


PS3: Many more exclusive games


Xbox 360: Many more games



All of these versus a system with basically nothing going for it. Hmmm tough choice.

Maybe if MS starts putting their console in happy meals, they might sell some...

just note one thing most people jumped on the sony ban wagon because people want to be on with in crowed. sony will screw you over soon enough just wait. plus the more sales you have on the console more people will buy and see what they have been missing. i'm sticking with the x1 family.

And on the other side...Knack, Killzone, a generic racing game this holiday (if it isn't delayed again), and a couple 2015 titles. No thanks. I'll stick with my X1 that I actually play and will continue to do so.

I see you comment frequently on these blogs for the XB1. It is actually pretty funny seeing someone try to defend the XBzero...what are they paying you to spew this propaganda??

You realize MS dropped online-only about a week after last year's E3.

lol 'power'. I bet you owned a PS2 over the original Xbox that was twice as powerful.

PS4: lackluster library and little 1st party support for at least the next year and a half.

PS3 & 360: who cares?

X1: Plenty of exclusives for this holiday and Spring 2015. Media center. Halo, Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive pretty much bl0w every Sony offer clear out of the water.

Me, my brother and two cousins left Xbox and are enjoying the best console gaming has to offer on our new PS4s. We are happy to be done with ecksbawks

@Sevenizz Don't do that you sound like a major fanboy and makes us xbox 1 owners look bad.

@Sevenizz  Actually I owned both fanboy. I have always supported Microsoft until this generation. They are pathetic now compared to Sony and even Nintendo.

@Sevenizz The XB1, PS4, and Wii U have their fare share of awesome exclusives. I feel sorry for people so blinded by their fanboy rage that they can't simply accept that their gaming platform of choice isn't the only one worth having.


You fanboys seem to have a poor grasp on how opinions work as well:

@Sevenizz Has a lot going for it this holiday? hahaha. No one cares about Ps3 & 360? I do. Ps4 little 1'st party support? I call BS. Lackluster library for both at this point in time, yes.

@Sevenizz Amen, there isn't a single game on PS4 that would make me want the system.  I really enjoy Forza and Dead Rising.

@Sevenizz funny how the PS4 has a so called lackluster library yet can still outsell the One almost 2 to 1.

@eternal_napalm Youll be back when that HALO drops & YOU know it = BETA to HALO 5 multiplayer.

Just looking for thumbs up applause you are.

Master_Of_Fools

@eternal_napalm PS4 the greatest gaming console? It may have power and sold the best of the 3 8th gen consoles....but fun wise....Wii U wins, there is no question about that. Other then Infamous Second Son PS4 has NOTHING till Destiny in September....a Multiplate which I am unfortunately forced to buy a stupid PS4 just to play Destiny.

danielgibbs7902

@Martyr77 @Sevenizz Not really...the sales in the US are pretty close [where it matters to me].

SONY sucks in their own market where the 3DS is outselling the Ps4...maybe the Japanese know something us westerners wont admit = There are no games for the Ps4.

Good thing for x-plats & Indies.

MS - price drop, more games than PS4 IN 2014, steady flow of updates, releasing in 26 more countries, HALO [which WILL bring MS defectors back] & that includes beta to HALO 5.

You realize I own a PS1, 2, and 3. I'm in the market for 4, but as of now and it looks like for 2015, nothing is 'grabbing' me.

I'm not a fanboy.

Says the Sony fanboy in a Microsoft thread?

Hypocrite, much?

That and it actually has nearly twice the number of exclusives as Xbox One.

Marketing and anti Microsoft backlash. Unless people were actually looking forward to Knack and killzone.

We only come to these threads to see the XB lovers get excited over news that is slim to none, not even a valiant attempt to do better than the ps4, it's humorous, that's why we show up
