Alienware offering $200 for old console trade-ins

With new consoles coming out in less than a month, many would like for you to trade in your current-gen systems. Surprisingly, one of those companies is Alienware. They want your used PS3, Xbox 360, or Wii system. By trading in a working console, you'll be able to get a $200 rebate off an Alienware computer.

The promo site (via IGN) suggests picking up the Alienware X51, which starts at $699. After the rebate, that would make it cost pretty much the same as an Xbox One. The basic rig is equipped with 6GB of RAM and a GTX 645 graphics card.

It's an interesting offer, especially given the benefits of joining the PC Master Race. In terms of cash back, it also beats GameStop significantly. The game retailer is only offering $110 for Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles.
