Torn between selling PS3 to Gamestop for $125 credit towards Xbone w/o kinect

I really want a PS4 and bought a PS3 Black Friday bundle last year. I enjoyed TLOU and thought just playing that game alone was worth the PS3 purchase. Right now I have no time for games and I want to get rid of my PS3 and 360 before they are worthless. With the current deal Gamestop is having (i never shop there) I can get a X1 for $275 if I trade in my PS3 for $125 credit. I can also tarde in my 360 for $75 credit but I want it for Borderland pre sequel.

I only have 5 games for PS3

Uncharted dual pack (beat uncharted 1 and halfway through 2)
Infamous collection (beat festival of blood and Infamous 1, start infamous 2 and am kinda bored of it already)
Dead Space 3 (got it for $10 and half through it, very meh game)
Rocksmith 2014 (got it for $11 and barley played it but really want to)
TLOU (beat it with all trophies, haven't touched it since)
Batman Arkham Origins (never even played it yet)

Should I trade in my PS3? If I get the Xbone I won't buy a PS4 since they both offer the same 3rd party games even if they run a little nicer on PS4. I can care less about 1080p vs 900p.

Never trade in a still viable console for another unless
1. you have two of them
2. you're ripping someone or a store off (fixed ylod ps3)
You are doing neither. Keep it. Save up the money or find a kmart or other place that still does lay-a-way.

You have to look at 2 things and decide for yourself. Those 2 things are: The exclusives and the controller. Personally, I plan to get one at $399 soon after they release it in June.

The exclusives are:

- Dead Rising 3
- Ryse Son of Rome
- Forza
- Sunset Overdrive or whatever it's called
- Killer instinct
- Future exclusives such as Halo 5
- feel free to add ones i forgot

I guess I'll just keep my PS3 then since that's what most people are saying. I just like good deals and the X1 for $399 with a $125 credit seemed like a good one.

I just wanted to try and get some value out of my PS3 (and 360) when I finally upgrade to a next gen system. I don't keep around old systems since all they would do is take up space and I hardly have more than 8 games for my 360 and PS3. I rent mostly.

Keep the PS3, you might miss it.

Save up and by the Bone on your own. Don't trade your stuff for it.. There will be plenty of PS3 games going for cheap soon enough, so it would be a waste of the console to trade it in.

If there aren't any games you want to get for the PS3, and you're done with the games you've got, I don't see any reason to keep it. Like you said, all it'll do is take up room.

I sold my 360, kept my ps3 for mlb the show and bought an x1. I regretted selling my 360 and bought a 4GB. Keep the 360 maybe if it's not to old, sell the ps3, I only play mlb on my ps3 but I've been playing my 360 a lot lately. Love the x1 but it's a little slow right now for new games as expected.
