Does anyone know how Gamestop trade ins work and if other retailers like Best Buy have it? I'm wondering how much credit I could get towards a One with a black 360 and a PS3.

I went and reserved the Titanfall Edition. I'm going to bring my 360, PS3, and all my games and probably end up with half off I would think.

Good luck man. Best advice I can give with trading in stuff is just accept the fact the peripherals and games are hardly worth anything but they are useless without the console anyway. I think with the 50% additional credit you should probably break $250 hopefully. I wonder if they will give that to you for both consoles as well? If they do, you may even get close to $300. I would guess the Eye is worth around $4 trade in, and Kinect might be around $10.

Gamestop right now has a get an additional 50% trade in credit towards the purchase of any new console, details here. so that is going to be your best bet if you use a retail store. So if the trade in value of your console is $50, you'll get an additional $25.
I just traded my 360 towards a WiiU last week, so I know with a few controllers you could get close to $100 trade in value. Truth is the 360 does not have much trade in worth these days at all, and the PS3 is not that much better. Combined you may get $200, possibly a little over, for both.

For the most part, there is no specific trade-in, they will give you store credit and you can use it. However there are times that Gamestop will have a trade-in deal where you get an extra 20% or sometimes $50 or $100 when trading in a system if you put the credit towards a Xbox One. You would need to check with the individual store to see what promotions are running.

you'll want to take both systems into Gamestop and have them scan them. that way, they'll give you an accurate quote. i've tried to do this over the phone, and they simply wont. it's really annoying.

That's odd, as the GameStop I talked to could not give me the exact quote for my console specifically, the guy I talked to on the phone told me the trade in value of all the different models and hard drive sizes over the phone no problems at all. He just said of course this all depends on your console working, etc, but he was cool with giving me an idea of what to expect.

Also looks like my numbers might be a bit off, if you have a newer 360, might get as much as 110 for it (thats before the 50% additional). I got that info from this page where they provide trade in values for systems and games.

So it looks like I might get $200 or a little more towards it? I have both consoles with 2 controllers each. Kinect for the 360 and the Eye for the ps3. Maybe I'l get slightly more. That's not bad at all and I'd for sure get the Titanfall edition. Anyone know if integration works with DirecTV yet?

A quick look at the forums the Direct TV boxes work just fine with the XB1.. most issues have to do with RF and IR but this can be changed in your STB settings

And this is why I HATE Gamestop... they will turn around and sell it for $30 to $40..

Yeah he said my Kinect is worth $6 and I couldn't believe it. They'll for sure turn around and sell it for $30-40. Still though with the systems and games I should get a good chunk of my purchase price paid.

That's the reason that eBay is here... you can sell them on ebay for good amount...  if you are lucky enough.

 

Those stores (such as Gamestop) suck.

Gamestop may suck but I am growing to hate eBay and their fees not to mention Paypal fees.

Craiglist then.
