Amazon is offering players a $25 bonus credit towards a Xbox One title when they trade in its Xbox 360 equivalent in addition to your trade-in value of at least $25. So gamers need to pay $9.99 to get the Xbox One version. Offer valid till December 31, 2013.

Meanwhile, GameStop is offering something similar. PowerUp Rewards™ members will receive $50 credit when trading eligible Xbox 360 games towards their Xbox One copy.

"This is an amazing opportunity for our PowerUp (PUR) members to enjoy their favorite Xbox 360 game until the Xbox One version becomes available," said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of merchandising at GameStop. "This offer gives PUR members the chance to upgrade their current Xbox 360 game for the new Xbox One standard version of that game for $9.99. This is a great example of how GameStop is helping gamers make the transition to the next generation of consoles economical and seamless."

The titles offered under this promotion are

  • Activision's Call of Duty®: Ghosts
  • Electronic Arts' Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, and Battlefield 4
