Next Gen Microsoft Console Ditching Discs
Although unconfirmed by Microsoft, a recent report revealed that the next generation Microsoft machine will not include a disc drive. Developers were put under “the strictest non disclosure agreement” to protect the news… lol. Microsoft’s only comment regarded their quest to provide equipment that “[defies] the lifecycle convention”.
Other rumors reveal that the system will include some type of removable solid state media drive, likely as a substitute for the media drive. A release date has finally been confirmed for 2013, but their announcement of the system is still in limbo.
