Disc-less Xbox One to be released in 2019

PS4 Black Friday Deals 2018

According to their own E3 conference, Microsoft are working on multiple new consoles at the moment and while at least one of them is assumed to be a next gen successor to the Xbox One news has leaked out on what one of the others may be. Players will be able to take their discs into participating retailers (including Microsoft Stores) and trade them in for a "digital entitlement" that can be applied to their Xbox Live account.

How will Microsoft reduce costs so it can offer this new Xbox One at a lower price?

In addition to the discounts above, both Sony and Microsoft have announced that the Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles themselves will also be available at a reduced price on Black Friday, for those who may be in the market to purchase a new console. Microsoft now offers two different models of the console; the more powerful Xbox One X for $US499, and the $US250 Xbox One S.

While Microsoft is still revising the Xbox One hardware, the company's next-generation console is already in the works, going by the codename "Scarlett".

While there isn't an official confirmation from Microsoft on this information just yet, the report details that the console is slated to release in 2019 and will not allow users to insert discs into the console.

Interestingly, their sources claim that Microsoft have still not come up with a decision on whether the Scarlett family will include disc drives or not, and apparently will be making "a final decision shortly". Streaming games would require a strong internet connection, but would greatly reduce the amount of power and storage space needed to deliver a premium gaming experience.
