    The next Xbox won't contain a physical disc drive, according to a new report.

    A source close to British trade magazine MCV claims that Microsoft revealed this information under what it described as "the strictest NDA" they have ever encountered.

    While the console will not contain a disc drive, according to the source, the report suggests it will contain "some sort of interchangeable solid-state card storage, although it is not known whether this will be proprietary or a more standard format such as SD."

    MCV is also claiming that a 2013 release window for the hardware has been confirmed.

    A move to digital-only distribution would be extremely unconventional for Microsoft; if there is any truth to this report, it would be a major blow for traditional retail. Microsoft has yet to officially deny the story.

    In response to the report, Microsoft has said, "We are always thinking about what is next for our platform and how to continue to defy the lifecycle convention. Beyond that we do not comment on rumors or speculation."

    So the reality not being able to buy used games is more probable than not. Damn

    That's just ..... weird...
    although we may not use the DVD/Whatever-ROM drive much ...
    but it's still nice to have....


    so that we could watch DVD/BluRay/MKV-rip :D
