Microsoft Will Give You $100 for Your PS3
And now, ladies and gentlemen, the next stage of the console war between old rivals Microsoft and Sony is in full swing. Microsoft Stores began a new deal this week that we could classify as a fired shot — if you give them a working PS3, you’ll get $100 off an Xbox One.
They’ll also take your Xbox 360 Ss and Es for that same amount of credit. It’s not the greatest deal ever – Gamestop did better in November — but if you’re looking to make a move like today…
Almost certainly MS will send these off to a third party that will dust ‘em out and stock them at GameStop or Amazon, but it’s still funny that they’d solicit PS3s. They oughtta throw down $200 for PS4s just to see if anyone bites.
