Microsoft releases Xbox One console in 2019 without a disk tray




Rumor: Microsoft reportedly releases an updated console next year that no longer has a disc drive. It would be an Xbox One of the current generation; the future Xbox of the new generation is not expected before 2020.

The Thurott website reports that multiple sources, which would be familiar with Microsoft’s plans, said that Microsoft plans to release an Xbox One in 2019 without a tray for physical discs. The goal of Microsoft is to significantly lower the costs for the console; it could possibly go down by a maximum of $ 100. It is not yet clear whether the new console actually comes true, but if that happens, it could allegedly happen in the spring of 2019.

The fact that the new console no longer has room for physical discs does not have to cause problems for Xbox gamers who have a large collection of physical games. For them there will be a so-called ‘ disc-to-digital ‘ program, with which the physical games can be converted into digital downloads.

Whether these plans of scrapping the disk drawer will find its way to the new, future Xbox console is unclear. This project of the new Xbox would carry the code name Scarlett and it might be two consoles : a regular console that performs the calculations locally and a cheaper box that uses Microsoft’s upcoming game stream service .
