There’s always a problem when buying games during the holiday season of a new console year. Do you buy the new system and the new version of the game, or do you buy the old system version of the game and wait to buy the new system. It’s never been more of a conundrum than this year, but GameStop says it has you covered.
Since the Xbox One will not be backwards compatible with the Xbox 360, GameStop has decided to make gamers a deal. If they buy the Xbox 360 version of a game, but later decide to get an Xbox One, you can switch the 360 version of the game for an Xbox One version for $10 or less.
However, there are a couple catches. You have to purchase the game within 30 days of its launch and the offer is only good until the end of the year.
The conversion process works by giving you $50 in store credit towards the purchase of the Xbox One version of the game, and you can only use the credit to buy the new version of the same game with that credit.
This basically allows players to play some of the bigger titles that are coming out shortly before the new system without having to wait for the Xbox One to be released while still being able to get the Xbox One copy without shelling out another $60.
Is this something you’ll be taking advantage of?
