While there will be some games released exclusively for the Xbox One, many of the games for Microsoft's next generation came console will be ports of games made for other platforms, such as the current Xbox 360. Today, GameStop announced a special upgrade offer that will allow a few Xbox 360 games to be traded for the same game on the Xbox One for a much higher credit amount.
GameStop's press release states that members of its PowerUp Rewards program can trade in those select games and get a minimum of $50 credit towards purchasing the same game for the Xbox One. The list of eligible games includes:
- Activision: "Call of Duty: Ghosts"
- Electronic Arts: "Madden NFL 25," "FIFA 14" and "Battlefield 4"
- Ubisoft: "Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag"
PowerUp Rewards members have to purchase the games that are part of the offer within 30 days of their initial release to be eligible for the offer. The Xbox 360 game can then be traded in for the same Xbox One version of the game GameStop says, "Following the purchase of an eligible current generation title, members will receive the guaranteed $50 trade-credit coupon via email and in their PowerUp Rewards Active Offers." The coupon must be used by Dec. 31; in 2014 the coupon will no longer be valid.
