Free(?) Swap xbox 360 super elite for 'slim'

From what I can tell, those of you with super elites can swap them for the new model at Game.

They're currently advertising the new model is available half-price when you trade in your super elite. The current trade in value of such is £100 (game.co.uk/low…spx?lid=13465&cm_sp=xbox360-_-topnav-_-tradein), whilst the new price on the latest model is £199. Technically they will owe you 50p!

(nb - yes I *know* they probably mean that you give them your super elite and they charge you £99. But the official in-store advertising clearly states purchase it for half price when.....)

Xbox 360 120GB Elite £80.00
Xbox 360 60GB £60.00

Nintendo Wii £40.00
PS3 40GB £110.00
PS3 80GB £120.00
PS3 120GB Slim £155.00

yer so you pay 100 for a new one as the trade is 100 for super elite ???????????????????????????????????????????????//////////////////

They mean, you trade in your xbox 360 elite, and you get the other one for half price, so then somehow (when its already gone) you trade in your xbox 360 elite and then you get it for free.

Yeah i know, you tell me.

I think they mean it works out half price once they have taken the £100 off the price, hence you still have to pay £99.... ?

that really doesn't make any sense oO

You really do need to read what you have typed more carefully ...

the new model is available half-price when you trade in your super elite

Basically means that when you give them your old Super Elite you need to still pay them half of the original purchase price of the Slim .. therefore you owe them a console and £99. I'm not sure what straw you are grasping with your deal?

It's gonna get cold in here

The wording used by game is rather silly.

Yes you get it half price when you trade the console in to them, so you have to give them your machine, "trade it" to get the half price. In no way does the wording suggest you get the console half price and the trade value for your console. By all means try it, but you'll look stupid and won't get anywhere with it.

Don;t forget that you will also need to pay £15 to buy a transfer cable - what a con.

so you and enchante accept "give me £99 AND a console worth £100" as reading and meaning the same as "purchase the new console half price"? (which is teh exact wording) In the scenario GAME are meaning there is AT NO POINT a time when you are purchasing the new model at anything but fullprice.

I just hate their typical, slippery advertising (also that they have signs up advertising the 'slim'. coo I'm in a bad mood today :-) )

Unfortunately I don't have a super-elite to trade-in, but was hoping somebody else did
