Perhaps these employees are unaware of the fine print:
In store only! Limit 1 trade per customer. Trade credit bump only applies towards PS5 / XBOX SERIES X|S Console bundle. Trade credit may be put towards future PS5/Xbox Series X|S Console bundles with no guaranteed date of when stock will be available. Cannot be combined with other Trade offers including EDGE. Trade must be in full working condition. Altered consoles will not be accepted for trade. Hardware must have all necessary components for trade. Subject to manager approval. Offer subject to change at any time. No substitutions will be made. No rainchecks.

Guess we'll have to wait to see what these "bundles" are.

Definitely going to try to trade my OG PS4 for a Series S.

You have to buy a bundle which is a game and controller. You will have no profit after you sell the bundle let alone $600.

Well this isn't really that amazing of a deal. I had a ps5 since launch for 8 months until my bro took it with him. Anyways, the only thing I was playing was ps4 games on it. It was pretty useless. On the other hand there were a bunch of xbox games I could play on gamepass so the series X was worth it. I ended up just picking up a ps4 on kijiji again after my bro took the ps5 and its worked out well.

I was planning on purchasing a ps5 when it dropped in price, or the slim released, but this is a decent deal too. On the other hand, I don't want to lose progress on the ps4 games I'm playing. This is a big difference between xbox and playstation. On xbox it doesn't matter if you play a game on pc, xbox one, your phone etc, you can just pick up and play on your xbos series x and it will continue flawlessly. The ps5 is a completely different trash case, you basically lose all your progress in any game you played on the ps4 and need to start from scratch.

Meh, guess I'll wait on the ps5.

Facepalm. Seriously? You had the PS5 for 8 months and you didn’t know you could bring your save over? Lmao

Is this possible to do prior to actually having the PS5?

I don't understand why they hide console prices when they are out of stock. Why have a promo for the purchase an item if the customer can't even figure out how much it costs?

Crap, I thought $240 for my 1TB was a good deal. Don't really regret it though, at least I have a PS5. Who knows when you'll get one now since they've announced production cutbacks.

Also does the system have to be fully working, do they check?
they normally want a working unit with controller and power cable

sometimes they will just plug it into the wall and make sure it powers on, but i have heard of them plugging into a screen and making sure the drive and controller actually work as ppl try to bring in their broken units and controllers and get turned away

I don't think they take consoles trade-in and then you wait until PS5 or XSX is in stock.

You can only do this if it's in stock. But maybe they changed rules here I don't know.

Yes they’re supposed to have changed the rules as per the official website website. Some staff are just being ignorant

Have to wonder though, how they can keep a wait list the PS5 even in bundle sells in minutes. Combined with mostly everyone jumping on this, the wait could by half a year or longer.

Wonder if I should wait to trade in my PS5 controller. It went wonky on me last night and kept kicking me out of games and apps. Luckily I have a 2nd controller that just needed to be charged. $28 for a trade in seems low though...
