US video game retailer GameStop is running an interesting but slightly odd deal at the moment where customers can get $200 in-store credit when they trade their old Nintendo Switch towards a "new" one. Before you start speculating this is some type of promotion in preparation for an unannounced system, we assure you, it's not.
Speaking to Kotaku, GameStop said the offer was targeting people who were considering replacing their old Switch with the Diablo III Eternal Collection bundle. According to the source, the bundle is priced at $360, so even with the trade-in credit, you still have to fork out another $160 for it. Presumably, the offer covers the special edition Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! Switch deal as well. The deal to trade in your Switch for a new system runs from now until 11th November.
Of course, deals like this aren't necessarily new, but it's often more tempting when there's a new and improved system on offer, rather than an existing model with exclusive artwork.
Have you been tempted by the Diablo 3 or Pokémon Switch bundles with special artwork? Or are you holding out for the new system that's rumoured to arrive in 2019? Tell us below.
