Hi

I have an xbox one and ps4

i'd like to trade my ps4 for an xbox one( so i could have a second xbox one in my bedroom), and i'd like to avoid craigslist/dealing with strangers

I asked gamestop and they said they could give me $200 credit on the ps4 and sell me a $300 used Xbox, which doesn't seem like a great deal since I feel like the ps4 is the more popular system and i should be able to break somewhat even on a trade.

Are there any other options for me?

Yeah i'm surprised I thought there would be stores that would be happy to switch ps4s for xbox ones since ps4 is a hotter seller but there doesn't seem to be any offers like that out there.

Im most likely gonna just jump on the $240 xbox one refurb deal thats going right now and sell my ps4 for cash.

Thanks laugh out loud

Any place that you found that would be willing to do that would just be a local mom and pop place. I did have a place near me where I took in a couple of new games I was getting during buy 2 get 1 free and they swapped for me (since I was giving them new and received used games). I was fine with that. GameStop would have given me $0.25 for them, :eyeroll:

But yeah, find a local consignment shop or something as they will have first hand knowledge... we have "Gadget Ease" near us that deals in used electronics.

like curtie said, you could try a pawn shop actually. they might do a swap for you. they might charge for it though some places cities have laws where pawn shops can't sell stuff for X days after buying it. to discourage them from buying stuff they think is hot and flipping it.

Businesses need profit, they're not gonna 1 for 1. Even a pawn shop probably wouldn't. Yes PS4s are hotter right now, but what's the incentive for the store? Then everyone's going to want to 1 for 1 trade.

If you have 0 PS4s and 1 One (or multiple), and PS4's sell weekly and One's sell every other week...there is profit to be made as you aren't getting a sale when you are OOS.

Again...pawn shops know their situation and have first hand knowledge of the market, we would just be speculating. You have to ask the question to get an answer.

Yes, and if they take your PS4 they have to give you $0.00 for it. Then sell you an Xbox for $0.00. Then they have to wait a week to sell it. And if it's stolen they are out a PS4 and an Xbox. Anyone is free to try to trade 1 for 1, but I have never had success doing it outside a personal trade via Craigslist. Our store even has a 0 trade policy. It's not worth the risk.

I was lucky that I was able to even swap a friend my PS4 for his XBOX 1. He was joking around that he would trade his X1 for my PS4 and never expected I'd take him up on it Big Grin

Good luck dude

Wait for a deal at gamestop. I dumped a launch ps4 and purchased the elite console - at the time i think it was 50 plus a game and pad extra. Wasnt a lot in difference.
