Best Buy offering $10 upgrade to Xbox One on select games

Xbox One Screenshot - 1150806

Best Buy is joining GameStop and Amazon with a program that offers game upgrades from current- to next-gen for just $10.

Over on the Best Buy website you can see the eligible list of games which includes FIFA 14, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, and Watch Dogs. Here's how the program works:

Within one day after you purchase the Xbox 360 edition, you'll receive a $10 coupon via e-mail, valid for the Xbox One edition of that title when it's released. (Coupon is only valid when used with this trade-in offer.)

When you are ready to trade up to the Xbox One edition, bring your Xbox 360 edition and $10 coupon to any participating Best Buy store to trade in the game for a Best Buy gift card with a minimum $40 value.

You'll receive a code on your trade-in receipt that will activate your $10 Xbox One coupon. When you purchase the Xbox One edition in store, you must bring this activation code with your $10 coupon.

Use the $40 Best Buy trade-in gift card, your $10 coupon and the activation code toward your Xbox One game purchase to get the game for as low as $9.99.

It's worth noting that while such retailers haven't announced upgrades from PS3 to PS4, individual publishers such as Activision and EA have already announced a similar upgrade program, for the same titles, for Sony's next-gen console.
