Microsoft will pay 360 owners $75 to buy the X1!

This is the best time for people on the fence to finally jump in. Kinda bad for the people who bought one at launch though, this is a pretty chunky temporary discount so soon in the systems life.

The firm is offering Xbox 360 owners $75 if they purchase Xbox One and any available Xbox One bundle.

Been able to keep backlog low and got a Kinect, no regrets buying at launch.

Are you saying that if I buy an Xbox One, I get it for free with $75? Alright, might buy several then.

Sure, not that behind in the US. However, when you look at the 360 to PS3 sales in the US, you see that the 360 was around 20M ahead and was selling around 1.9:1.

Going from so far a head to a little behind is kinda bad. However it is early days and anything can happen. This $75 is pretty good for anyone wanting an xbone this month.

This is the best mockery of Microsoft's ridiculous sore loser attitude ever. They're doing the console more harm than good by being so desperate all the time.

That's fine but what do I do with the 93 boxed 360 games and 12 digital ones I own?

No thanks, I love my 360 far too much to lose it.
