Next Xbox won’t have disc drive: Gamespot

March 10th, 2012 by bash Comments

Gamespot UK is reporting that Microsoft’s next Xbox will not have a disc drive, according to a source.

As a replacement to the disc drive, the console will supposedly offer “some sort of interchangeable solid-state card storage”.

As well as the disc drive news, the source indicated that the console would ship in 2013. Latest rumors say the Xbox 360 successor could boast a tablet controller, block used games, and cost as much as $500 in the US.

Microsoft had not responded to GameSpot’s request for comment when it went to press with the story.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
