If your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 just hasn't felt quite as exciting lately as it once did, it might be time to consider an upgrade. In the US, a major retailer is hoping to enticing some console owners to do just that, by trading in their last-gen models for credit towards a new Xbox One.
GameStop is offering $100 towards an Xbox One when you trade in one of the older consoles - but to get that credit, you'll only be able to trade in specific models of each machine: any PlayStation 3 with 120GB storage or more, or any Xbox 360 with 250GB or more.
If you trade in your 360 for an Xbox One, you'll have the added bonus of backward compatibility to look forward to, allowing you to play 360 games on the newer consoles from November, with over 100 titles supported on day one.
Here's the small print for GameStop's trade-in deal:
