Earlier this week, Microsoft sent around an email asking fans to “ditch” their PlayStation 3 consoles. In return, Microsoft would offer customers $US100 off an Xbox One.

While Microsoft also offered the same deal if people turned in an Xbox 360 E or Xbox 360 S, the announcement seemed like a desperate move from the company who is currently trailing behind Sony in sales for its next-gen console.
The deal continues until March 2.
Microsoft’s ad says they plan to recycle the PS3s.
