Microsoft offering $100 credit for exchanging your PS3 with Xbox One

Xbox-One-With-Kinect

The “next gen” console war between Sony and Microsoft has well and truly started and it seems the both companies are doing everything in their power to attract you towards their console. Sony’s Playstation 4 is leading the race up till now but Microsoft has started an intriguing promotion to make sure that your next console is the Xbox One and not the PS4.

If you own a last gen console then (subject to condition of the console and other factors) you will receive $100 store credits  if you trade-in your old console for a Xbox One which comes with a second generation Kinect. This offer is not only for Xbox 360 but you can also exchange your PS3 if you are planning to jump the ship.

According to the post made on the Microsoft Store website

Get $100 of store credit when you trade in select gaming consoles

Trade up and get your hands on the new Xbox One

Welcome to a new generation of games and entertainment. Where games push the boundaries of realism. And television obeys your every command. Where listening to music while playing a game is a snap. And you can jump from TV to movies to music to a game in an instant. Where your experience is custom tailored to you. And the entertainment you love is all in one place. Welcome to the all-in-one, Xbox One.

  • For a limited time, bring in your PS3, Xbox 360 S or Xbox 360 E and receive $100 of Microsoft retail store credit.

  • Terms and conditions apply.

  • See store associate for more detail.

This offer can be availed in Microsoft retails stores in US and Canada.

You can always sell your old console (and its games) for way more than $100 but if you are too lazy to find a buyer, then this will provide a convenient and hassle-free route if you are planning to switch your allegiance. You could also just buy a PS4 and keep your old console as well since the PS4 is already a hundred bucks cheaper than the Xbox.
