My thoughts are that I can't believe that people are actually gullible enough to believe crap like this.

My thought would be that there's no reason to replicate & announce other companies' ads for free.

Exactly how much are they paying you to put up this gargantuan sign?

Could you get more than $100 selling or trading in a PS3 anyway?

To tell you the truth, I think I'd just throw the PS3 out the window anyway. Why not get 100 dollars for it? Seriously, I don't see why you people hate the ad.

As we are all aware the Xbox One has had a lot of issues.

A lot.

Like seriously, so many.

And they are giving an incentive to make their product equate the product of PS4 (by "switching sides" no less) as if that makes it then inherently better.

What issues? I haven't seen a single one they haven't fixed.


First off, that isn't a very good position to be in.

They are also currently having huge frame rate issues, to discuss current issues.

Besides, they're giving you the glorious offer


"glorious"

of giving them a worthless piece of trash, for 100 dollars off their new product.


As Pazx pointed out, you can outright SELL the PS4 for more money, which makes this deal even more asinine.

Also "worthless piece of trash" gr8 b8 m8

i havent looked up too much into it but, the whole being banned for cussing too much seems abit harsh. like if its real its stupid then, cause if you play multiplayer games of course sooner or later you're gunna get mad and go "F@&!" or "F@#! YOU" especially in a FPS like cod. and saying things in the privacy of your own home shouldnt be punishable in anyway.

Nothing it's fan made.

I don't see why you people hate the ad.


It's not an ad.

Did some research and it's actually real. Wow.

Why would you think that?


Because it seemed like the type of crap that fanboys would create.

lol
Maybe you should have looked into it then. You don't get banned for "cussing" on Xbox. It's an optional feature on sports games put in place by the game devs that punishes you in-game.

You know you're down in the proverbial sewage dumps when you have to bribe customers to buy your console due to the low pre-release satisfaction players felt.

They're basically letting you give them a brick


I'm gonna eat your b8. How exactly is the PS3 a brick? First of all it's the only piece of tech I have that can run Bluray discs. Second, how exactly am I going to be playing The Last of Us dlc on this "brick" if I give it up for an Xbone?

why would i want to research a console me or no one i know is ever going to buy ? lol

This isn't bribery. They're basically letting you give them a brick for $100 off on your purchase of their console.


but the xbox one is huge just like the power box and doesnt have enough good exclusives for anyone to want one anyway
