Sources also say that the giant from Redmond is planning to launch a program to convert physical copies of games to digital products.
Paul Thurrott, an acknowledged technology journalist, made a report via his blog, which should definitely be of interest to fans of consoles Microsoft. Thurrott, referring to allegedly reliable sources, states that the giant from Redmond in the spring of 2019 intends to issue another variant of the console Xbox One.
The new edition of the equipment is to be completely free of optical drive, which means that only digital versions of games are supported. This solution is to allow a significant reduction in the cost of production, and at the same time the final price of the console, so that we pay for the equipment less than $ 200. Of course, the variant discussed here is directed only to lovers of digital distribution, but Thurrotta thinks Microsoft does not forget about game owners on physical media. According to him, the giant from Redmond in cooperation with distributors plans to launch a special program to convert physical versions of games to digital access keys.
It is worth remembering that these are not official reports and treat them with the appropriate distance. The date of the alleged new release Xbox One it is not particularly distant, so probably everything will be explained in the coming months.
In the meantime, let me know what you think about such solutions.
