I don't see the difference between this time and last, if anything I think there is more incentive for people to switch because the console is considerably better. The actual issue might be this thing might be in more demand combined with a hardware shortage or something making it not worth the vendors while to offer aggressive trade in deals.

For anyone curious last year they were offering 200$ for an OG xbox + about 125$ in gift cards + a bargain bin game of your choice with the purchase of the 400$ 1TB Xbox one S with Fifa and they only wanted the console + power supply meaning you got to keep your controller/kinect/HDMI/headset from the existing console.

Im not expecting to get a practically free upgrade like last year but if I can get 200$ plus some gift cards I think its worth holding out for.

I did pre-order the Scorpio edition but I think Im just going to wait and see what kind of trade in deals hit when this thing is finally released.
I'm going to do the EBG trade-in. I have $200 in credit so I'll only be paying $200 _ tax out of pocket. Worth it for me.

is this only in EU?
Right now, you can pre-order the Xbox One X and get Forza Motorsport 7, Halo 5 Guardians and Quantum Break for £449.99, the same price you’ll find the console available on its own at most other retailers at the moment. This means you’re essentially getting three games for free.

Yeah I was banking on a good trade in deal but I think this thing might be a bit hard to find and as a result not have much in the way if trade in offers.

My friend just decided to preorder and he said to my surprise the preorders are practically sold out at most places now. He scooped one off amazon.

I called EBG when they initially removed the promo from the website, but they said it's still on going. I'd check with your local EBG.

Is it normal for a company to charge your credit card now (October 24) for a November 7 release?

Where did you pre-order it from? I know Best Buy and Amazon charge when it ships.

Don't want to say at the moment in case they do in fact ship it early, lol. Does any company charge up front this early? I did not think any did. So, we will see I guess . . .
