Yeah that was really great of them both. Looking back at my receipt, it was a 10% discount + trade bump up on the old PS4. So like ~$100 bonus. I guess it was slow sales of the Pro at the time? It basically kept me from buying a gaming PC for 2+years lol. (which was my intention that year)
I'll never forget being at the cash register a few years back, and a couple bought a used PS3 + GTAV + some nonense third party controller as a spare. Keep in mind GTAV was already out on PS4/XB1. I asked the supervisor there why someone would pay that much for an old hardware console, do they actually sell well? His response?
"I sell this bundle every single day"
Similarly I mentioned in another thread of a couple of college-aged guys this year buying a USED base model PS4 + used Destiny 2 (keep in mind D2 was going free to play shortly). Actually, they were returning it for the same bundle because the original purchase was defective. The used price versus new was like a $50 difference only. They should have known better, but looking back, I was being way too judgemental, because, there's a big chunk of the population that is extremely price sensitive.
