Microsoft are already in discussions with retailers about possible trade-in deals for their upcoming console ‘Project Scorpio’.
Many retailers have offered such deals for previous consoles, but it is surprising to hear about the trade-in deal for a console that isn’t even set to release until next year.
Dave McCarthy of Microsoft gave the following statement on Scorpio’s trade-in prospects, “Some of our retail partners today do trade-in programs and that’s definitely going to be partnerships we continue to move going forward…We want to make that transition as smooth as possible.”
However, with the Scorpio supporting backwards compatibility you may not want to trade-in your Xbox One titles or controllers. Will this result in getting less money off for the trade-in? That question remains to be answered.
