Update (5/26 5:15pm): If you don’t have an old console or aren’t ready to part with yours yet, Amazon has a terrific PS4 bundle: For $399 (regular retail price) you get a 500GB PlayStation 4 console with The Last of Us Remastered and a 1-year PlayStation Plus membership ($50 value). Deal ends tomorrow.

There’s no reason you should still be holding out on jumping into a PlayStation 4. Sony’s most recent game console has a host of terrific games including Bloodborne, The Witcher 3, and Mortal Kombat X with huge names in the pipeline for release later this year.

Usually it’s best to avoid console trades and go for private sale. However, Best Buy stores are currently running a deal that’ll net you a minimum of $175 (3x normal value) towards a PS4 for your old PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360:best-buy-ps4-trade-offerThe Best Buy promo runs from now until 6/6/15. You’ll need to trade-in a working Xbox 360 250GB or Sony PS3 Slim console and “must include AC adapter/power cord, power on, not be damaged or have its warranty seal broken to be considered working.” Please refer to the deal terms and conditions below for more information. That $175 credit drops the price of a PS4 down to $225.

As a comparison, Amazon is currently offering ~$55 for the aforementioned Xbox 360 and ~$80 for the PlayStation 3. Gamestop isn’t much better, coming in at $50 for both systems.
