Microsoft is said to be building an Xbox with no disc drive

In addition to partnering with the Xbox team, CORSAIR is committed to working more closely with Microsoft on numerous other initiatives including Mixer, Microsoft's next-generation interactive live streaming service. "Built from the ground up for gaming on Xbox One and Windows 10, it will come equipped with a dedicated Xbox key, and support for the new Xbox Dynamic Lighting capability - enabling immersive game-controlled lighting effects".

On top of this rumored discless console, Thurrott also reports that Microsoft will release a revised Xbox One S console that retains the disc drive but still has a lower cost. I'm also not exactly sure what I think about the report claiming 2020 will be the launch of a new Xbox console. By removing the disc drive.

Xbox One S - how long will it remain the cheapest Xbox One?

In addition, the company also has a revised Xbox One S SKU that is targeted for later in the year that focuses exclusively on cost reduction but does feature a disc-drive for those who still prefer the traditional way to buy your games. All this could launch as early as spring 2019, yet the firm isn't committing to a launch window internally. Without a disc drive, it obviously can't play physical media, but those who already have a library of games will reportedly be able to trade them in with Microsoft in exchange for digital copies of those same titles. And if this is making you nervous because you have a large collection of physical discs for your current Xbox, Microsoft has you covered. Additionally, you should know that RGB lighting now only runs from the keyboard's hardware playback and can not be customized from the Xbox One just yet.
