Best Buy said (via CNET) that it will begin selling PlayStation 4 consoles and Xbox One systems at 12:01 a.m. on November 15 and November 22, respectively, in North America.

A list of participating Best Buy locations is available on the company's website for the PS4 and Xbox One.

In addition to the special midnight events, Best Buy announced a new promotion for select Xbox One titles for those who have bought the game's Xbox 360 counterpart and elect to trade it in at the retailer.

Best Buy will give up to $40 of in-store credit for these games, which will also include a $10 trade-in coupon when purchased. This effectively equates to upgrading from the Xbox 360 version of a game to the Xbox One version for $10.

More information about the trade-up program is available on Best Buy's website.

Retailers Amazon and GameStop, as well as publishers like Sony and Activision, are holding similar promotions.
