Amazon Matches Gamestop Upgrade Deal for 360 to Xbox One Games

Posted August 19th, 2013 at 10:45 am


Earlier this month Gamestop announced a program which will give consumers who buy Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Battlefield 4, Assassin’s Creed IV, and Call of Duty: Ghosts on the Xbox 360 the opportunity to trade those games in for $50 in credit to put towards the same game on the Xbox One once released. Now Amazon is offering essentially the same deal but for a total of eight games.

Trade in the current-gen copy by December 31 and receive a $50 promo credit with Amazon to put towards the Xbox One game. Check out full details on the program here.

Gamestop’s offer does not feature NBA 2K14 but Amazon’s does. It also includes Watch Dogs and Need for Speed Rivals.

    Nothing for PS4 🙁

    What about Ps3 to Ps4?

    Any reason why ps4 wont make a counter? aside from what seems to
    be the obvious, as the ps4 seems to be leading the way in the next-gen war…

    not interested in next gen til the industry shows some respect for Sports gaming.

    This Xbox One is sneaking back into contention! I hadn’t heard from PS4 since E3…
    Plus, I heard Pasta might switch… What tha deal?

    • I’m still getting both systems, but feel like third party games I’ll pick up for the PS4 due to a few different considerations. We’ll see. Things can change.

        Wavering commitment?

    Not a bad deal for Microsoft, though I’m sure Sony will have to counter in some way. It’s a short term deal though, this will likely only be a thing for this year and this year only and Microsoft may be trying to get back some early adopters they lost to the PS4.

    You know what’s really annoying – and I know its all marketing strategy to focus on last-gen now, is the fact that there has been nearly nothing in announcements from the next-gen front. Heck, we still don’t know a specific release date for the consoles (sure we can all assume a date around Thanksgiving, but still). We are three months out and nary a gameplay video – mostly pre-rendered cutscenes… .

    Just to clarify – the game that you trade-in with Amazon has to be for the same game on the Xbox One. This is covered in the FAQ’s regarding the program.

    Also, I would be careful about trying this with more than one game with Amazon….in the terms and conditions, it states that “the promotion is limited to one per customer,” so it sounds like they will only offer the additional credit for one game.

    I’m not familiar with the GameStop deal so I don’t know how it compares.

    Pasta, question: like many Madden fans, I’m excited about EA bringing back the ability to upload draft classes, but how will that work on Xbox One/PS4, assuming no NCAA 14 is released on those consoles?

    • Don’t know if you’ll be able to take NCAA draft classes to the Xbox One/PS4 yet. Haven’t responded to inquiries on it.

    what about xbox 360 to ps4?
