[EB Games] EB Games: Get a PS4 PRO for $249.99 when you trade in your old PS4 (Apr 14th to 20th)

Was looking in trading xbox one S to eb games and buying new one at Shoppers with sale and 20% points, when noticed this promo starting tomorrow April 14th to 20th. https://www.ebgames.ca/playdoffers/Index

Get a PS4 PRO for $249.99 when you trade in your old PS4

Not a bad deal if looking at upgrading as last time i checked few months ago the TIV was i think $170. You would get new hardware and warranty and if you did eventually trade up for PS5 in next year or two would get more TIV from the pro than the original or slim.

Update: called eb games, TIV is $170 for the original and $200 for the slim, so $80 or $50 boost depending on what console you have.

A new PS4 slim is $379 regular (can be found for $250 on sale) A PS4 Pro retails for $499. With the trade in you're essentially getting a Pro for the price of a slim on sale.

This is a great deal for anyone who's looking to upgrade their PS4, especially if you still have the OG PS4.

This logic is flawed.

You can sell an OG PS4 for a minimum of $200 on Kijiji, so you are still paying $200 + $250(taxable) for your PS4 Pro by doing this trade.

Let's say I have the original 500G PS4 from launch (with the extremely loud fan), in the opinion of the board here is it genuinely worth it to do this deal? Especially considering the PS5 could come out in the next 1-2 years? I also just bought a 4K tv on Black Friday, but is it worth the 250$+ to upgrade? Thanks for any responses!

That makes no sense. You trade in your system and pay $250 to get the Pro. I'm not paying $450.

Decent deal for anyone who doesn't want to deal with Kijiji. I had a launch PS4 fat that I was able to sell on Kijiji for $280 less than a month ago. Combining SDM F&F + 20x points to buy a PS4 Pro and selling your old console is a better deal, however it does require dealing with kijiji...

No you're not, you're getting a $250 credit for your old PS4 and only paying $250. So if you wanna do the total price after trade it would be $282.change for a brand new PS4 Pro. That sure beats having to sell a system on kijiji, then buying a PS4 Pro for 499+tax.

So lets say you get $200 selling your PS4 to someone on Kijiji. Now you're paying out of pocket (after tax) $364.98 (499.99+tax = 564.98-200=364.98) for a new PS4 Pro. That's an $83 difference.

And for someone who wants to upgrade to a PS4 Pro, this is a good deal.

Totally work the upgrade for a 4K tv. Plus new console with full warranty.

Your logic is still flawed. You are assuming you got your current PS4 for free, which might apply to some, but not many. A PS4 can sell for $200-250 on Kijiji so it's just as good as this deal. With that said, this is a great deal if your current PS4 is slow and you want to upgrade to a PS4 Pro with better features.

I have an OG PS4 with an external drive plugged in. Performance wise, how will the Pro affect my actual in-game experience?

No I'm not. Most people don't think "well since I bought this for $x originally, if I trade it in I'm playing that original amount plus extra". Everyone know's the value of an item drops once you purchase it. If someone has an OG PS4 I'm sure by now they've got their moneys worth out of that initial investment.

If someone wants to get this deal right now, they're only having to pay $250+tax TODAY.

Generally games can run at a more stable frame rate. If you have a 1080p tv, games that are optimized for the PS4 Pro in 4k can be supersampled on your display which will increase image quality.

All my math is correct. Maybe you didnt read it right.

The main concern I have is your original statement "With the trade in you're essentially getting a Pro for the price of a slim on sale."

This Just flat out isn't true, unless you value the trade it at $0.

As I said in my first post, iF YOU DO THIS TRADE, you are paying $200 (the price you could have got for your OG PS4) plus the difference of $250 (plus taxes)

So, you are still paying roughly $475 AFTER TAX, for this PS4. Yes, that's an $80~ difference as you suggested, but SO WHAT! Is $80 off a PS4 pro after tax a hot deal? Might as well wait for the next special edition PS4 Pro with a game included for $500.
