Just in time for today’s E3 press conferences, Microsoft and retailer Best Buy have come together to offer a promotion where consumers can earn up to $175 in trade-in value for the Xbox 360 or PS3 when trading in either console towards an Xbox One. Other retailers, like GameStop, have offered similar incentives when trading in towards new consoles, but Best Buy’s latest promotion is offering among the highest trade-in value that we’ve seen in months (Gamestop offered $125 trade-in value back in April).
If you’ve been on the fence about picking up an Xbox One and waiting for today’s E3 press conference to make your decision, now you’ve got a great promotion in place to help you out.
Check out the details from Best Buy’s website below.

Update: Readers are pointing out that Best Buy’s dates in the fine print shows that the promotion has expired. The image below is a screenshot for this week’s “weekly ad”. It appears to be oversight on the retailers end who, it appears, have forgotten to update the fine print after you click through to redeem the offer. Check out the ad page below.
