First thing I want to point out is that this is only available if you can make it in to a physical Microsoft store, and there are not a lot of them. The few they do have are in big, populated areas, but I figured I'd put the deal up here anyway. I know a lot of people might be excluded from this deal, but a lot of people live in these cities too. There are two locations in Toronto, one in Vancouver and one in Burnaby. They are building one in the West Edmonton Mall and a second in Burnaby. If you can't make it to one of these places, I'm sorry, you're out of luck.
I think we can all agree (because gamers are notorious for agreeing on the internet) that Microsoft messed up the launch of the Xbox One. I've been watching E3 for a long time and I've never seen a crowd lose it over an announcement as much as they did over the PS4. At that moment, the xBone was born and Microsoft started backpedaling.
One of the things they are doing to dig out of the hole they have created for themselves is this deal. You buy an Xbox 360 game now and bring it in, with your receipt, to a physical Microsoft Store and trade it in for the Xbox One version for only $10. It's an amazing deal and I hope someone at Playstation decides to do this too!
It's only available on certain big title games. The games are:
- Battlefield 4
- Madden NFL 25
- Need for Speed Rivals
- Call of Duty: Ghosts
- FIFA 14
- Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
These are all big name games that are going to be murder to wait for!
