Haven't made the leap to the new generation yet? Think you're missing out on too much?

Maybe it's time to finally trade in the old console and upgrade. GameStop has just made this idea a little more appealing.

GameStop has announced a new deal that will run through June 28: They will give you $150 in-store credit for a PlayStation 3 (120GB or greater) or an Xbox 360 (250GB or greater), provided it's toward the purchase of a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. If you go with the PS4, they'll even toss in a free copy of Batman: Arkham Knight , while Xbox One purchasers can get any new Xbox One game of their choice at no extra cost.

Then again, if you plan on keeping your old system, this probably won't do you any good. It can be enticing if you're suffering from generational fatigue, though…

My PS3 is worth more to me than an XO right now.

I'm so happy younger me never took the bait and traded in my old systems for a bit of cash. It's great to not only play some of the classics but enjoy them on their original systems. To me old consoles/PCs are like collecting classic cars.

Where is bikersaint?

Younger me always had a hard time resisting the lure of selling off the old to get the new. Some consoles I keep. Some I sell.
I sold my X360 for my PS4.
Though it would be sorta cool to have a museum of old consoles in a room or something.
Every so often I go on these anti pack rat kicks and throw away old stuff I don't want to tote around anymore.
This happens because I've helped a number of people move in my time and you won't believe the quantity of junk people hold on to.

I still have an NES and SNES!

I'm not Bikersaint's keeper so I don't know where he is. I like having him around though!

Best Buy was (not sure if it's still in effect) running a similar deal but you get a minimum of $175, slightly better deal.

Good deal for an Xbox One, to be honest, if I wasn't completely biased and hate MS's guts.

Speaking of old console, I definitely need to find Dreamcast to play Shenmue 1 & 2 before no3 come out…
