Looking for a deal on the newly announced $500 Xbox One Titanfall bundle? Now through March 23, you can trade in any system (yes, any) at GameStop to earn an extra 50 percent trade-in credit when applied towards the purchase of the bundle. In addition, you can trade in any item--game, system, accessory--and receive 30 percent extra in-store credit towards the purchase of Titanfall the game.

The extra 50 percent trade-in promotion is also good for any system traded towards the purchase of a PlayStation 4, Wii U, or standard Xbox One console. You can check out a chart featuring trade-in values for various consoles and games at GameStop's website.

Alongside the promotion, GameStop has launched a special "Titan Academy" microsite via the main GameStop website. It offers gameplay and trailer videos, as well as a special downloadable digital asset pack featuring skins for gamers' social media profiles.

Developed by a team of former Call of Duty designers, including Infinity Ward cofounder Vince Zampella, Titanfall launches March 11 for Xbox One and PC. An Xbox 360 version--developed externally at Bluepoint Games--will launch two weeks later on March 25.

For more on Titanfall, be sure to check out our feature, The Next Big Game: Titanfall, which includes exclusives interviews, previews, and videos for the game.

I'm trading in my PS4 for this bundle. PS4 is worth $344, plus the 50% extra store credit. That's enough to get the Titanfall bundle for free!

According to the trade in value link, the Xbox One is worth $390 trade-in.  If you currently have an Xbox One, couldn't you trade it in and basically get a new console, titanfall for free and a free month of Xbox Live out of it with the extra 50% trade in value?  I assume going over the $500 for the system wouldn't give you the extra value in Gametop credit since it says towards the console bundle, but according to the promo, it seems you can basically get Titanfall and a month of Xbox Live Gold for free by trading in your current system.  Unless I'm missing something?

Still not interested.  EA is a horrible company.  Beyond that they are champions of the homosexual cause that gamespot has allied itself with.  Titanfall is pass.

Wow Gamestop must have a lot of inventory of Xbox Ones if they are doing this.

The article states quite blatantly "any system" but I see no prices for Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, Virtual Boy, Gizmondo, N-Gage, N-Gage QD, Tapwave Zodiac, Tiger Game.com, Super Nintendo, Famicom, Philips CD-i... 


Pretty much nothing can be traded in D:

Screw Gamestop...I will never give them my business again. Best Buy and Amazon are the way to go.

So instead of $10, you'll get $15!

Beware of Gamestop's extra trade in promos. What they do is lower the trade in value of what they would normally give for trades.

For instance, if a game has a normal trade value of $15, they will lower that to $10 and "give" 50% as a "bonus."

I think it is good to see Gamestop offering these incentives to people wanting to upgrade to either next gen (now current gen lol) console.  The more peeps we can bring onboard for either system, the better - the more the merrier!

Sorry microsofty, but the xBone is an epic fail. Not even TitanFAIL can save it. 

You desperations is just plain sad at this point.

Microsoft must be truly desperate for making a price cut so early. This is common sense, things are going good, no need for price cut, things are bad, make a price cut. Microsoft is putting all their faith in a third party game, of titanfall doesn't magically turn x1 position, nothing will.


The fact that titanfall is not exclusive on x1 will not help. Many people will rather take a quality experience and buy the PC version while those who only have a 360 will buy it for 360 since the x1 version and 360 are the same.

So instead of $20, they will give you $30.

So, does this mean that if I trade in a ps1, I can get the X1 and Titanfall game for $250?

Like I said yesterday, Gamestop is desperate to move Xbox consoles because they have walls of them in their retail stores as it is. I traded in all my old 360 stuff the other day and got 30% trade in on my PS4 game pre-orders so this 50% deal is actually an incredible deal if only it were for a next gen gaming console. Last night some yahoo posted on this site that the Xbox One is 4k and the PS4 isn't. So consumers are still completely oblivious to what they are getting and this promotion will draw in more of them.

Also if you really think about it all though;s copies of Titan fall will be digital that come with the xbox one oh let the pre load start up. Besides you can't use the code tell the game is lunched, makes me wonder what dumb ass will get suckered thinking he's getting a hard copy before every one else.

@mvlbr Actually it's the other way around: They crapped their pants when they saw the massive potential loss of revenue in Titanfall-related sales, since there's no difference between their version and anyone else's.  So this is their version of sweetening the deal (while stockpiling their own pure-profit used game market).  It's a smart business move, but frankly I haven't bought anything from GS in ~3 years.

@Gravelord_Nito I've been awaiting their demise for years...  Physical stores serve very little purpose these days.

@daabulls23 I dunno, sometimes they offer the better deal if you can use store credit with them. I gave them my Wii for in store credit cause I could get a lot more that way than trying to sell it on my own (but bought my console I had wanted instead of the wii off ebay. I just used the store credit for games).

nuke1984

@daabulls23 You took the words right out of my mouth.      The trick is to get all these sheeple to unplug and box up their consoles and drive all the way to the store thinking they will get a huge trade in, then realize they get close to nothing, and decide its not worth their time to re-install their console and then decide to take the hit.  Its a scam for the uneducated.

@DaGamer24-7 There might be a technical hurdle in the way of that, which is that many Xbone owners likely have their cable boxes hooked up to their Xbones using the HDMI passthrough feature.

I'm not sure if the Xbone is capable of outputting TV or a Blu-ray/DVD to one screen while simultaneously streaming a game to another screen.

@enoslives7  The Xbox One is the 2nd fastest selling console in history its sold 3.6 million in 13 countrys in under 3 months.It took the PS4 49 countrys to do 5.4 million.Game totals the PS4 7 million games sold and the Xbox One 10 million games sold.You say it cant be saved the Xbox division has been making profit since september of 2007 and the X1 is already making profit.Sony just posted $197 million loss last quarter for the playstation brand 8 years in a row its lost money.5.8 billion loss on the PS3,2 billion loss on the vita,and $60 loss on every PS4 console sold.You should read more on these companys before you post

@enoslives7 The fact that it's selling better than any other console besides the PS4 means it's a failure?

@enoslives7  how can you be negative about this? This is great news for all gamers. And besides PS4 sucks, Thief 1080p 10fps, what a joke. And besides this is GameStop not ms!

@TristanPR77  Thats funny because the pre orders show 60,000 for the PC and 60,000 .Xbox 360.On the Xbox One the pre orders are 250,000.So much for people not buying it on the X1.Some of you people just post with no idea what your talking about

@TristanPR77  

They are , if they weren't they would be posting their sale (not shipped) numbers all over the GS , IGN and others...instead they are posting price cuts (not even 3 months after release)

All-in-one is a MS's complete failure, as Win 8 , phones, tablets are not selling at all and XBOX is falling behind after fairly decent start.

I guess all Xbox fans (not in bad way( already bought it and rest of the population is not that interested to do so...

@Arther-la-Blunt I think your comprehension of 50% is bad.  You get 50% extra when you trade in something.  For example, New model 500gb PS3 you normally get $100.  With this bonus you would get $150.  Therefore you could get the Xbox One for $500 - $150 = $350.

They might give you $5 for a PS1.  So you would get $7.50.  ;)

@wookiegr This is for the Titanfall bundle. How can they have walls of them, when it hasn't been shipped yet?

@wookiegr  GameStop puts on deals like this because they are in the business of selling physical media which is being attacked by every publisher.

"The extra 50 percent trade-in promotion is also good for any system traded towards the purchase of a PlayStation 4, Wii U, or standard Xbox One console."

You are still completely oblivious to what you are getting when you read a GameSpot headline.

@Spartan_418 @DaGamer24-7 most computers capable of gaming in the last 7 or so years have been able to play a game on one screen and stream video (or whatever else you want to do) on another so long as the video card has two outputs. Considering the hardware of the Xbox One it shouldn't be too much of a strain to accomplish such a thing since the tv output is merely relayed by the cable box (which has already done all the signal conversion). Thanks for you input though.

@smackdowner360 @enoslives7  Europe and USA markets accounted for 88% of all Xbox 360s sold in its total lifetime global sales. The Xbox One has already launched in these countries and will make up the overwhelming majority of Xbox Ones overall success.


This whole "13 countries vs 49 countries" means nothing. Xbox One can hope for a 12% raise in sales at the very best were it to be released in the other 36 countries.


Additionally, the PS4 has only made an 11% raise from the countries outside USA and Europe so far. And Xbox One will definately not fare any better either.


USA and European markets are 2 very important ones for both Sony and Microsoft. Everywhere else amounts to just loose scraps, pocket change, left overs etc.

@smackdowner360 @enoslives7Regurgitating your PR like a good little Xbot.

1) The PS4 is available to 85% of the international market, Xbone is available to 70%. The Xbone releasing in the Netherlands and Chile will not save it.

2) PS4 sold 9.7 million games as of January.

3) The Xbox brand has made a $3billion total loss since inception

4) The PS4 makes a profit on one game sold and a PS+ account. As this is happening, it will be turning a profit. And it is: SCE made £172 million profit last quarter.

Xbone is finished.

@smackdowner360 @TristanPR77That is population that already bought X1 , why would they buy in something else.

He is referring to potential buyers, which would then had to dish out another $500 to play game that would not look good as it will on PC and will probably look about same on Xbox 360. 

Really no reason to spend extra if you already have one of those 2 systems..since X1 doesn't offer anything new..

Tommi88

@bobbo888 @Tommi88  so far there are more exclusives on the xbox one than on the ps4, ur logic is just so fail. And besides theres Halo and Gear of war coming up which are HUGE. PS4 doesnt have titles like that at all.


And again: THIEF 10FPS ON PS4.
