    Red face How can I exchange my PS3 for an Xbox 360 at Gamestop???

    I was wondering if you can take your PS3 to a Gamestop store and sell/exchange it for an Xbox 360. I really want Halo 3 and hardly ever play my PS3 amynore and since Gamestop takes used video games I thought maybe thay also can take consoles...please help!!

    Yes, they will. However they will offer you about half its retail value.

    250 for a console and game is pretty cheap. If the price drop to 170ish I'm going to get one just for value for money.

    while i agree to some point, at this moment in time and for the forseeable future the 360 is a much better choice for GAMES, which is what these machines are made for.

    The ports are better, and you have the biggest games coming out this year.

    Also gears is out and cheap now, for pre owned anyway, forza 2 just landed, DIRT is out soon, then theres all the back catalogue, better running ports.

    and games like bioshock,blue dragon,halo 3, Mass effect, TOo human.trusty bell and many more coming out just soon.

    so yeah, just sit and think logically for a minute.

    Honestly, don't trade in the PS3 for a 360 as you'll just be losing value. If you have to get rid of it to afford the 360 sell it you will get better value for it.

    But yeah, i'd get both consoles rather than selling one. If you work hard one month you'll be able to afford it. Work overtime

    But if you have to, sell it and don't trade it.

    Dude we've got tons of decent games coming out this year. Just look at all the ones that game out Gamer's Day (or maybe GDC I can't rember)

    R&c, Haze, MGS4 just to name a few

    Dude im not insulting at all, im saying at this moment in time. I love my ps3, but i admit on the gamess fron its collecting dust, im playing MGS3 subsistance upscaled and playing blu ray movies, but at this moment in time and for the forseeable future the 360 is a better choice if you have to choose one.

    Haze is gonna come to 360, R&C looks amazing, MGS4 is more or less 10 months away.

    I HAVE to own a ps3 and i love it, but if i was honestly forced to choose one or another i would have the 360 at the minute, i cant comment on the future becuase it all might change!

    but honestly, forza 2, gears of war, halo 3 in september, GTA 4 in october, MASS EFFECT soon, TOO HUMAN, DMC4, DIRT, PLUS all the multiplatform games i havnt said, ANd RPG's LIKE BLUE DRAGON, LOST ODYSSEY.....and of course BIOSHOCK!!!! oh and PGR4

    i mean seriousley!

    Its blatently the best option, IF YOU HAD TO CHOOSE!

    I think all those games are THIS year aswell, not next year.

    Im not dissing the ps3, every one knows its in for the long haul, Im just saying for the next 6 months or so...the 360 is defo kicking butt. We havnt seen plans for 08.

    anyways...thats all i was sayin

    How do you trade in a PS3 for 360 you ask?

    Easy answer - Don't.

    From an impartial standpoint, right now I'd choose the 360, better selection of games and online content..

    I was thinking about selling my PS3 aswell....there's just nothing worth playing in the for-seeable future and the price of the system just sitting there is killing me a little.

    The Xbox 360 is twice the games machine of the PS3 right now and will be for a long time.

    Dasimpse don't mention multiplat games... look at exclusives this year only... then choose.

    And scotracer... PFFT. Look at exclsuives, the PS3's 2nd gen games kick ass of the 360's 3rd gen games and not just in quantity... SRSLY, what are you guys talking about?

    I thought about selling mine too, I have the 20Gb ps3. I don't know if sell it or keep it for my collection of consoles, but the problem is people and stores like EB games want to buy so cheap. Anyways I see why people want to sell their Ps3.

    No way I'll trade my PS3 in for a 360 right now or sell it for one, but there are some great games coming out for the 360 right now and in the next 6 months. If you want the best gaming experience for the "now", the 360 is probably the best option.

    If you want games that are probably only possible and ONLY designed for the strength of the console, the PS3 is going to be hard to beat in the next 18 months. There's just so many unique experiences coming to the PS3 that just don't seem to be showing up anywhere else. Little Big Planet is totally unique and is creating a brand new type of gaming experience, shattering any other game in terms of creativity, Lair is just crazy with it's epic scale, Signstar is totally gay, but will sell millions for those who are into that sort of thing (LOL!), Uncharted is offering a gaming experience I've been waiting for for years, Warhawk Beta has me really excited with the numerous ways to die and be killed with no lag. And this isn't even the games that I knew about before I bought my PS3. MGS4, FF13, R&C, Sly Cooper, GT5 (Up to TWENTY cars online, $#@!pit view, variable weather during races).

    People are right in these forums. There are going to be more quality experiences on the 360 gaming library this summer and starting into the fall. But the PS3 will start releasing stuff this fall and beyond, and there will be no looking back. I highly doubt there will be too many hiccups game release wise for the PS3 in 2008.

    I bought my PS3 because I knew I'd get a huge variety of gaming experiences I couldn't get anywhere else. The more Sony has been showing, the more happy I am with my launch day purchase.

    If you're willing to wait a bit longer, the PS3 will treat you well. If not, then you'll get some great games on the 360 as well. But don't be surprised if you regret not having a PS3 when the likes of LBP, Home, Uncharted, and Warhawk come out this winter. I know I would. Best would be to have both.

    Put your PS3 on ebay instead, you will get more money.

    To the OP, go to the store and set it on the counter, hand them your games, controllers, etc. they will then give you money which you can use to purchase a 360, or if your really lost you could just call them. Wait, whats the point of this thread, doesnt it belong in the ask a question thread?
