Forums - Gaming Discussion - Xbox X trade in value lower then ps4 Pro?

I was reading on twitter that the gamestop trade in value for the xbox x is actually slightly lower then the ps4 Pro. I can't get on their website to confirm because my ip isn't American so maybe somebody can check. 

 

I find this very surprising given the high price of the xbox x but it's obviously supply and demand at work. Too many people trading in the X compared to demand and the opposite for the pro. High demand but not a huge number of trade ins.

CEX here in Ireland offer 266 for the cheapest version of the ps4 pro but 288 for the cheapest version of the X1X

UK site offers 221 for the cheapest ps4p (one with a single 3rd party controller in bad condition) but 258 for a x1x

That's pretty close over here but I was talking about the US market.

Just checked.
Xbox One X 1TB is 230 in store credit.
PS4 Pro 1TB is 250 in store credit.

Cash is $200 vs $186 in favor of PlayStation, too. I guess demand dictates value!

The retail prices are still $500 vs $400, XB1X vs PS4P. Such a loss in value is pretty staggering, especially when it comes to Xbox. I need to see what they sell for used because it would seem like GameStop is making an absolute killing on used hardware.

PS4 Pros are flying faster of the shelves. I guess GameStop doesn't want to be over stocked with used XBXs. Perhaps it is also a sign for MS to cut the price if they wish to jumpstart sales.



Just checked Amazon for comparison. You get $195 for trading in a PS4 Pro vs $258 for trading in an XB1 X. My guess is the Gamestop Pro pricing is a limited time deal, Gamestop does those sometimes, usually trade values are comparable between Amazon and Gamestop. Trade-ins are a ripoff either way, you're much better off to sell a console privately in a local bulletin board, Craigslist, or newspaper classified ad, or to create a private seller account on Ebay or Amazon and sell it that way, than you are to trade-in. You can get at least $400 for XB1 X as a private seller and at least $350 from PS4 Pro as a private seller.

Check top right corner for trade value:

Xbox One X 1TB used - $469.99



I just bought this console a year ago. You know what I'm going to trade it in for way less money.
