Anyone ever ask why Microsoft wants ps3s

What are they doing with the ps3? Salvaging the bluray drives for their xboxes? What could it be?

It's just a trade-in deal. Trade in your PS3 or Xbox 360, get $100 - same as Gamestop, Target, etc. offer.

As for what they do with them, they probably sell them. Not to customers, but to businesses like Gamestop or Target, likely for less than $100, the difference of which is easily covered by the cost of a few X1 games.

***EDIT***
Also, the PS3's BD drive has worse specs than the BD drive in the Xbox One, meaning that unless Microsoft is putting in drives weaker than they're reporting (something fanboys might believe, but everyone else would know is utter nonsense), they can't be salvaging the PS3s for parts.

You're dumb. You think gamestop throws away your traded in game to just get a sale?

Maybe, but even GameStop has a limit to how many they take before they give you 5 cents

They are using them to build Optimus Prime and Grimlock.

The main draw would be the fact that another person is buying an Xbox one, which in turn means more systems sold, which also means more future games sold because more people own an xbox one...

By learning from a console that couldn't run skyrim right? You know a game xbox ran just fine. I know the ps3 is the more powerful system but with the above statement you can clearly see it was never "God-tier" way to be a obvious fanboy though
