GameStop Holding “Xbox One Trade Day” Tomorrow to Push Sales of New Kinect-Less Console

on June 7, 2014 4:49 AM

GameStop definitely isn’t new to giving Xbox One sales a nudge here and there, and looks like it’s going to happen with the new Kinect-less SKU as well, thanks to the “Xbox One Trade Day” which will be held tomorrow across the United States.

The event grants 50% extra in-store trade credit towards the purchase of one of the items included in the flyer you can see at the bottom of the post. Most of the products offered are obviously Xbox One-related, and the new Kinect-less console gets the lion’s share of the ad, even if there are a couple of tablets and pre-order of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (apparently regardless of platform).

At the moment the Kinect-less SKU is ranked 68th in GameStop best selling ranking, so the nudge could be designed to help move more units.

The offer is valid only tomorrow (June 8th), and you can find stores included in the initiative here.

If you want a new Xbox One and you have a few games you don’t need to trade in, this is probably a good chance like any other to get your hand on Microsoft’s new console.
