Microsoft Will Give You $100 Credit Towards An Xbox One For Your PS3

Whoa, holy shots fired, guys: Microsoft sent out a massive email to folks today, beckoning them to kick their PlayStation 3 consoles to the curb in exchange for a $100 credit towards an Xbox One. The ad reads a little something like this:

 

Oh, snapping turtles, that’s what I call a bonafide jab from the Microsoft team. You can also trade in an Xbox 360 (slim or fat) up until March 2nd at Microsoft stores to receive credit towards an Xbox One. If anything, this is a smart move by the big green machine, as ultimately they’d be converting part of PlayStation’s user base into Xbox owners long as folks were willing to take them up on this offer. Even so, their email dig at Sony is still liable to make and your buddies go:

 

At the end of the day, it’s good to know that the competitive nature between Microsoft and Sony is still good for a decent laugh. If you’re interested in hopping on this deal, all you need is a working PS3 (dead units need not apply) and you can head to your local Microsoft store right this minute.

    How does this make any sense? Ultimately you end up spending $900 for an Xbox One with $100 credit in the store?

    I have a TI 99/4a and a C64 i *might* be willing to part with. Even trades? Not that I would ever get an xbox, I’ve been with PS since they were grey.

    So, a TI and a C64 for an xbox, even up. Ball’s in your court Microsoft.
