Next Xbox Rumored to Lack a Disc Drive, But is That So Shocking?
Rumors regarding the Xbox 360′s successor are only going to become more frequent as we approach its announcement, whether that be coming at this year’s E3, next year’s, or some other point in time. The latest report suggests Microsoft’s third home game console will ship without what has been a critical component in the past: a disc drive.
According to MCV, partners of Microsoft’s have been told the new system will make use of “some sort of interchangeable solid-state card storage” in lieu of the disc-based media that console owners have become accustomed to for many years now. This flies in the face of previous speculation and reports that Microsoft would abandon DVD in favor of Blu-ray and its superior storage capacity.
