Buy Xbox One before Black Friday?

Khatndi 260 331 August 9, 2015 at 05:36 PM
Looking to upgrade system for 8 yr old as I don't want to keep pumping more $$ in games with no trade value and not get max benefit from xbox live He does not play any first party shooter or M rated games. Mainly sports and racing games.

I am considering one of the EA sports bundles coming out in Sept/Oct for Madden 16 or FIFA but need extra controller as well. Also looking at possibly joining BB gamers club if it will be worth it to get points etc.

Any thoughts on what pricing might be on these for BF? I know the EA games may drop half off to $30 on BF like they did last year, so my main focus would be a bundle with extra controller.Confused

Forget black friday...
Keep your eyes peeled for trade in deals on the 360.

He is 8, he can wait.

I would wait until Black friday anyways and buy whatever the best deal is at the time that doesn;t require waiting in store.
Prices are typically the same but with possibly an extra 50 dollar gift card thrown in, or 1-2 extra games thrown in. and 1TB hard drive sizes.

If you can trade in the old 360 into gamestop for a decent trade in value, then that would offset black friday deals and you would be able to give it to him a lot sooner i.e madden bundle which releases this week.

Good point on the GC deals. Not sure if I can get him to part with his beloved 360, so guess we will hold out for Santa. Thanks! repped
