A bunch of games announced this year are frustratingly available for next gen consoles and current gen consoles. This includes titles such as Assassins' Creed IV Black Flag, Call of Duty Ghosts, Battlefield 4, and more. For a gamer this can be a chore because you'll never know which version to go for, or which version will be played more by your friends.
Typically, for most of these games you'll have to wait a little longer to play on the next generation consoles because the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will need to hit shelves before next-gen variants of the games are released, but there may be more benefits to play on the new consoles such as better graphics or more support a few months down the line.
To help gamers solve this predicament, GameStop will be offering gamers $50 of in-store credit if they decide to swap a current gen game to a next gen game.
Although this sounds pretty cool, there are some catches. To be eligible for the $50 trade in value, customers will need to be a part of the Power-Up Rewards system, and will also have to trade in the current gen game within 30 days of the initial next gen game launch.
