wut?!?!?!?!?! are they going to use the cell for that secret sawce?!?!?!?

or are they going to trade it all in to gamestop for credit?!?!?!?!

#6 Posted by freedomfreak (38806 posts) -

Awesome!

Might as well unplug it, and bring it in.

That's awesome cut-throat marketing right there.

I think though, it's funny how cows seem to think the XB1 is "selling badly". In 5 weeks, they shipped 3.9 million consoles. That's huge. Is it as much as the PS4? No, but its still a huge success.

Cows gonna cow, I guess.

They are going to sacrifice them to the lord of light for the power to beat PS4.

Microsoft is so desperate.

Any promotion is sign of desperation?

I wouldn't give up my PS3, after all it has an unprecedented amount of GOTY's a perfect 10/10 game and 2 top 5 GOAT's, not to mention all the other world class gaming to be had.

3 million sold and 900k were let on stores on the busies time for sales...lol

Meanwhile on PS4 land sony shipped 4.2 million and sold it to actual real costumers not sitting in a gamestop or best buy storage room..lol

Come is hilarious...

MS started using sold to costumers numbers and all of a sudden,they shift gears into shipped to make look like they are close to sony.

Is pathetic seeing you hold tied to 3.9 when you know 900k went unsold last holiday,so if MS ship 20 million tomorrow the xbox one beat the PS4.? Even is 19,800,000 units still unsold?

  1. Keep yourself the PS3
  2. Wait for DS2 and P5
  3. Keep enjoying PSN+
  4. Save yourself $100 and buy a better system, aka PS4
  5. Profit!

Well, I guess I have to break my "no replys to tormentos" again...

First off, MS clarified that, go back and look at the articles. Secondly, if there were a 900K "on the shelf" backlog, like you suggest, MS would have to slow production - and someone would have noticed that. But, there is no info from MS's manufacturing partners about slowed production, is there?

Yeah, I thought so.

Craiglist, ebay, gamestop.

All way better ways to get more money for your system...and spend it the way you want.

#23 Posted by Desmonic (13180 posts) -

We sure this is legit? Seems a bit to "out there" even for MS... still good deal regardless.

Now, I'm not agreeing with torm at all. I can't be clear enough with that. But what in the world are you talking about?

I don't want to deal with freaks on Craiglist and don't want to deal with eBay listing. Amazon will give me something like $78 to trade in PS3. How much will I get at Gamestop?

#26 Posted by StriateEnd (497 posts) -

Sweet, thats an awesome deal.

Really? PS3 is a much better console than the Xbox One.

#27 Posted by seanmcloughlin (38210 posts) -

I don't want an X1 but it's nice for those who have a PS3 and want one

There is no clarification it was DC and the fact is until the 28 of December they shipped 3.9 million units,and only 3 million were sold and they reported that.

It was 3 million vs 4.2 million which sony also sold until the 28 of December as well.

How do you notice is MS slower production or not.? Hell most of you actually accuse sony of having poor manufacturing,and actually believe that MS was making more units than sony,it wasn't until January where MS reveal 3 million sold vs sony 4.2 that people actually got a confirmation that sony not only outsold MS but that they also out shipped MS by 300K units.

Is impossible to know that until MS release now shipped numbers and we get to see the difference from previous numbers.

MS manufacturing partners are not allow to discuss MS shipments without MS permission stop inventing crap dude,you look desperate.

Please post a link about MS partners expressing how much they produce and ship a month,i'll wait.

Tempting. I have a PS3 20GB that I have not turned on in like 11 months.

And you are going to give that to MS.? That PS3 play PS2 games so if anything you will get even more out of that one than a normal one either on gamestop or craig list.

#32 Posted by LJS9502_basic (150066 posts) -

No way in hell......dream on MS.

#33 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (3755 posts) -

Trade in a console with games for a console with no games.

What a bright idea! Brought to you by the same man who thinks a driveless Xbone is a good idea, no doubt.

#34 Posted by Netret0120 (2005 posts) -

Tempting to rip you a new anus. PS3 is def worth more than 100 bones.

MS: this didn't work with the iPad, and it won't work with the triple.

Spend your marketing money better

GS will give you like $50 for it with controller. Maybe $65 for the new SS. This deal is gold and better than the Ipad one to buy surface.

lol how is that DC, that's actually pretty good.

It should say save 100 dollars and your PS3

Why would any flowerpot head trade his ps3 for 100 bucks credit??

#40 Edited by Jakandsigz (4512 posts) -

Why would any flowerpot head trade his ps3 for 100 bucks credit??

The ones that have all the PS3's not named superslim and don't want to use craiglist or ebay?

Consumer: Can I trade in my 360

Microsoft: Hell No who would want those cheap pieces of plastic.

How about that feb ps+ lineup? It's literally worth more than 100 bucks.

#43 Edited by Animal-Mother (26420 posts) -

lol so instead of bringing a higher attach rate in to the one with a 360 they're targeting people with PS3s? lol, this goes to show how desperate microsoft is right now.

#44 Edited by super600 (30157 posts) -

This applies to the xbox 360 E and S consoles too probably and it's most likely a promotion to get people to vist the Microsoft store more often.

#45 Posted by Jakandsigz (4512 posts) -

Also leave it to tormentos to excludethe deal also applies for the 360. Just noticed that was not in the OP, shame on you tormy,.

#46 Edited by senses_fail_06 (6735 posts) -

Ah, I see what M$ is doing. They're buying all of these PS3s to research how to make a good console.

That's not how they marketed it. They're going for the throat (in a really dumb way).
