“We want to make the transition as smooth as possible.

The Xbox One Scorpio and the PS4 NEO both look to be treading new ground- at least for the console market. The idea of iterative hardware upgrades has been a mainstay in PC gaming, mobile gaming, and handheld gaming, but consoles have steadfastly avoided the model for years now.

So when you market a new idea like this to the market, you want to do everything that you can to enable widespread acceptance of it. And it looks like Microsoft, on their part, are looking at doing something like that by offering a trade in program of sorts for the Scorpio.

“We want to make that transition as smooth as possible,” Xbox Services manager Dave McCarthy told the Daily Star. “Some of our retail partners today do trade-in programs and that’s definitely going to be partnerships we continue to move going forward. We’ll try partnerships with our retail partners to smooth it even more with trade-in programs and things like that.”

Something like that would definitely be helpful- for instance, the various trade in programs that Nintendo had in place for the New Nintendo 3DS via their retail partners definitely led to that iteration selling as well as it did. Let’s hope the Xbox One Scorpio will also not be too expensive to begin with- trade in programs can only help so much if the console is massively expensive to begin with.

    Trading in is the first thing I thought of when Scorpio was announced. I have two XB1’s waiting for that so I’m definitely looking forward to it.

      Selling it on Craigslist or even to your neighbor gets you more cash than trading in. I sometimes don’t get people who are so obsessed with trading like its the only way.

      May as well do, they won’t be useful for much else.

    As smooth as possible, but still no price announced for the Scorpio. Gonna be a whole lot of moaning and groaning and cheek spreading.

      they cant lock down a firm price point until it is ready for production so you wont hear anything till E3 next year most likely

  • Mr Xrat

    Bothering to read the article tells you that trade-in schemes already exist and they expect them to still exist when Shitpio finally shows up. Stunning journalism.
