Yeah, you just need to pay the difference, because PS3s cost more than Xboxes.

Be careful though, the employees might think dirty thoughts about you, and even say them aloud to your face!

You will catch ample amounts of fanboy crap most likely. :lol: But yeah. You should get $130 for it, then pay the difference and your good to go.

What?!?!? You cant just go there and switch systems like that. You have to trade it in (along with the games and accessories) and see how much they"ll give you for it and if its enough $$$ then you can buy a ps3.

Wouldn't that be like trying to trade dog **** for a T-bone steak? :lol: Na, you can trade it in but you'd still have to pay a huge difference.

I'd say use craigslist and deal locally. That way someone will come to pick it up and you wont have to worry about shipping cost or the ebay seller fee.

This is actually some pretty sound advice. Just be sure to take it to them and not the other way around. If they know where you live they can bring a broke one back to you and demand their money back. Some dude tried to pull that on my buddy when he sold his PSP. He actually had to physically harm the person to get him to leave............... scary.

Youd be better off selling it on your own. I had an elite and was going to dump it off at gamespot when I got it back from repair and was offered $90. I was told the model didn't matter because they buy the harddrive seperate from the console keep in mind the elite was $400 at the time). I wouldn't be surprised if that has dropped since then. I'd say you'd be lucky to get $100 for it.

I stopped dealing with Gamestop a while ago due to their idioicy. Occasionally I deal with EB, even though their pretty much the same but least EB has less annoying employees.

Personally I'd just keep the Xbox - for what Gamestop will give you for it, you're practically giving it away. They want to give yousome tiny percentageof what you paid for it and then turn around and sell it for slightly less than what a new one costs. Total ripoff.

Don't get rid of your 360, at least not at Gamestop. Just save up the money and have the best of both worlds. If you're really intent on selling the 360 though, put it up on Ebay or craigslist. You'll get a much better price for it.

Check the price of a new system and subtract about 10% to get an idea of what a used system should be worth this works on all systems except forthe 60 gig PS3 that sells for almost full retail for a used system the last time I checked. This is more than a new PS3 is selling for currently. When dealing with a company that is going to retail a used system then there only going to pay wholesale price which is a lot less than retail.

I traded in a Wii for a 360 once (already had a PS3) because the Wii sucked ass.

EDIT: Didn't realize the poster above me necro'd this thread.

Most likely it was banned under the old rules but since the rule that got you banned is no longer against TOS they let you back in. :)

I've heard a few horror stories about Craigslist. You use it at your own risk, right?
