Report: Next Xbox Won't Have Disc Drive

You got to love unnamed sources and rumors simply because it’s usually pans out to be true. This rumor comes from a Microsoft partner who has learned that the new Xbox 720 (or whatever name lands on it) will be disc drive free and a launch date of 2013 to be announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in June. NDA? What NDA? big grin

The elimination of physical disc media for a platform as huge as the Xbox would be an enormous symbol of how digital content is the future, and anything you have to go to the store to buy is becoming a relic.
