Microsoft could be working on a disc-less Xbox One for a 2019 release. The rumor also says that gamers can trade in their discs for digital downloads.
I bet they will pass the savings of disk manufacture printing and shipping costs onto their customers with cheaper games!
Sorry, I couldn't resist.
I'm very skeptical about this. Disc-reading hardware is dirt-cheap, deleting disc handling from a console requires some (costly) redesign, retooling and at least GUI programming. And there would be some considerable backlash. Why bother at this point?
