Best Buy offering trade-in deal for Xbox One versions of select games

Best Buy will give gamers who purchase Xbox 360 versions of five titles launching this fall the chance to upgrade to the Xbox One version for as low as $9.99, according to the retailer's website.

Buyers must purchase the game online or in-store within a set window after its release date. Eligible titles include Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag (purchase by Nov. 24), Battlefield 4 (purchase by Nov. 24), Call of Duty: Ghosts (purchase by Dec. 5), FIFA 14 (purchase by Oct. 26) and Watch Dogs (purchase by Dec. 21). Within one day of purchasing the game, buyers will receive a $10 voucher via email to put towards the Xbox One version of the game.

Players can then bring their Xbox 360 version and $10 voucher to a participating Best Buy and trade the game in for a minimum of $40 in-store credit. This will activate the $10 voucher and allow players to purchase the Xbox One edition for $9.99, or slightly more if the game's price is higher.

The store page notes that trade-ins must occur before Dec. 31 of this year. Use the Best Buy store locator to find all participating storefronts.
