[Preorder] Xbox Series X $399 ($329 with Level 4 EB World) ($749 without) When You Trade in Your Xbox One X @ EB Games

3455

I reckon this is an amazing deal.

Make sure you select click and collect on the website when you preorder to get this offer.

Preorders commence online on 22nd September

Alternatively, you can get the Series S version for $299 when you trade in your Xbox One S but no one would want a stovetop.

EB world is eligible for this offer so if you are on level 4, that’s $420 off the console price itself

Note: Confirmation from EB Games rep If you place an online preorder for collection in store, you don't have to trade in until release day. Which means you can secure this deal and still use your Xbox One X until release day.

22/09/2020 8:14am: Update from EB Games Twitter Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S LAUNCH Shipment has now presold out. There will be a small shipment expected POST LAUNCH 2020. Current expected presell time of Midday AEST.

        Oh that's much better.

        Lucky they learned from the mistakes of "Xbox One" where picking a vague and potentially confusing name lost them tens of millions of dollars from clueless parents being unsure which console to buy, and didn't just do exactly the same thing again…

        • +2 votes

          The name was the least of the issues with the original Xbox launch. I don’t think people were that particularly confused, unlike the Wii U. Messaging around prerelease plans associated with digital content management and then a higher launch price for a less powerful console than the PS4 hurt them more.

      Edited. Thanks

      •  

        FYI: The 20% from Level 4 also applies to games, controllers, hardware, everything really.

        I bought a WiiU off Gumtree for $150 and did the same deal for a Switch. Ended up generating so much extra credit I was scrabbling for merch lol.

        Edit: So buy an Xbox One X for sub $329 or an S for $239. Anything extra is bonus credit.

          They did release a late gen revisions of the Xbox 360 called the Xbox 360 E so guess we got a vowel there.

        Put a series of Xbox One Series X boxes in a grid, and then copy the grid into a series, you'll have a series of xbox one series x box series box xbox one series of x box series series boxes of box series of boxes. And you can just keep putting the series of xbox one series x boxes into more boxes and sub-series to infinity.

        Weird to call someone a tight ass when they don't want to give extra money to one of the largest corporations on the planet.

          • +1 vote

            @b2dz: What benefit does it give to anyone, with the exception of the higher ups at Microsoft, to throw money blindly at a brand new product?

            Most new consoles throughout history have had faults at launch as well that get fixed in revisions. Buying them at day one only serves as justification of brand loyalty

            •  

              @Ninternet: "what benefit does it give to anyone" - a saving of ~$400.

              it's a choice that people make. pretending like there's no upside makes your argument weak.

              then you started talking about the capitalist narrative.

              so yeah. ok.

              •  

                @b2dz: "so yeah. ok" doesn't disprove or further any conversation about something you clearly disagree with. Why blindly defend capitalism?

                How does my viewpoint of the system affect your belief enough to bother even initially responding with "ok"?

            •  

              @Ninternet: While I agree history does indicate there is usually a console revision that improves the initial release of the console and would rather have the first revision of that console. If we were to wait for Rev 1 then the XBO X also depreciates, it may only be worth $200 in another 2 years, maybe less.

              In my opinion, your better off taking up this deal and there is a high chance another trade-in deal from the Series X to Rev 1 of the series X, even if it cost you $300 to upgrade at that point your already saving $220 (L4 member) from the value you haven't lost on the XBO X, so it may cost you around $100 to enjoy 2 years of next-gen gaming before the first revision or $50 a year.

              Even if you double my rough figgers, when you think about it, it's not worth waiting a very long time to upgrade if you already have an XBO X unless your after a console bundle which I think are rare for initial launch.

                @cc23: You can't share the credit, but you can get your buddy to trade it in for you and then they will have to purchase the console as well, but the limit 1 per person thing may be a problem if you both want it.

                •

                    But the credit will be tied to the EB account otherwise.

                  • +15 votes

                    @cc23: It's not credit. It's just a boost on the trade-in value of the product you're trading in.

                    E.g.

                    Xbox Series X $749 - $350 trade-in value (level 1) = $399
                    Xbox Series X $749 - $350 + 10% = $385 trade-in value (level 2) = $364
                    Xbox Series X $749 - $350 + 15% = $402.50 trade-in value (level 3) = $346.50
                    Xbox Series X $749 - $350 + 20% = $420 trade-in value (level 4) = $329
                    Xbox Series X $749 - $350 + 25% = $437.50 trade-in value (level 5) = $311.50

                    (All values assume trading Xbox One X for an Xbox Series X)

      What if you want to play Xbox between now and whenever your preorder comes in stock.

      •  

        How I am reading this deal is that on the day of release I hand over my X and pick up my series X, am I wrong? I thought that was the whole great point of this deal?

        • -2 votes

          Well if the series x plays games just as good or better than the one x, then why would I want my one x anymore. I could use the $350 saving to save up for a series s if I wanted a second xbox, so then they could both play all the new games.

          I'm also not sure if you need to trade in now and be console-less, or if you can do it when the Series X comes out. I'd be keen to know as this makes a huge difference!

        •  

          It's entirely dependant if the deal goes until Nov 10th (usually they do).

          But no, you can't just "reserve" the deal without giving up your current Xbox. What you can do is, is put in a normal pre-order of $50 (or $100, whatever the minimum is). Then on Nov 10th, if the deal is active, do the trade then on your pre-order.

          If the deal ends before Nov 10th, you have to give up your current Xbox whenever that end date is.

      • +1 vote

        I assume you hand over the Xbox One X on release day

        •  

          In the past when I did trade ins etc, if you are going to a midnight launch they will look to have you finalise the purchase before midnight either during the day or in the hour or two leading up to midnight. That way they can hand the consoles out much quicker come midnight.

          If you are not attending a midnight launch and will pick up furring the day, you’d just do it all at the time of pickup.

          •  

            @Smigit: With COVID, midnight launches are… unlikely.

            •  

              @Kyanar: I dunno. Victoria sure. I could see other places happening. They don’t get THAT crowded at the ones I’ve been to (Xbox One and Switch). Alternative is the same mob will line up at 9AM the following day but the shopping centre will have other shoppers around. The night launches are a good way to do it at a quieter time and in the past they assigned numbered tickets out to people to designate order, so there wasn’t a mob or any need to bunch up.

              Local stores here in Canberra are quite busy too fwiw.

      •  

        I think you put it in when collecting your new console, hence click and collect option. Plus, you have to put a $200 deposit.

            •  

              @Smigit: And is there any good reason to want to keep a One X now that the Series S and Series X exists? Other than saving a bit of money.

              •  

                @AustriaBargain: I’m keeping my One S as a second UHD player. Additionally XCloud will eventually hit Australia so I’ll be able to stream new games to it, again to another TV.

                No reason to have both consoles on the same TV however.
