Father's Day is just around the corner, and if pops is a gamer, Best Buy has an offer that you might find is too good to refuse. It involves wiping the dust off your PlayStation 3 Slim or Xbox 360 250GB console, grabbing the power cable, and making sure it fires up. If so, you can trade in either of those consoles and receive $175 towards an Xbox One console.
That slashes the price of an Xbox One in half, provided you're opting for a 500GB model. For example, Best Buy currently sells a special white edition of the Xbox One with 500GB hard drive and Halo: The Master Chief Collection bundled in for $350. Or for $50 more, you can bump up to a 1TB Xbox One that also comes with the Halo game, though it's the standard black model.
If Halo's not your thing, Best Buy also continues to sell the Xbox One bundled with Assassin's Creed: Unity and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. It too is a 500GB console and like the aforementioned Halo bundle, it sells for $350.
