Microsoft: A New Diskless Xbox One may be launched in 2019

Microsoft: A New Diskless Xbox One may be launched in 2019

Microsoft may launch a new diskless Xbox One console in 2019. According to sources, the new console will not be a part of the tech giant’s Scarlett family (the next-gen console that Microsoft will likely release by 2020, Scarlett is a game–streaming service.)

The latest news may cause panic among several users because the move by the tech behemoth may turn the physical units redundant. But Microsoft has back up plans to avoid that. The company will launch a disk to digital program for the users. The program will convert physical games into digital. Users can trade their disk in a retailer store which will provide a digital copy of their disk.

Once the new Xbox One diskless version is launched, the prices of the console will go less by $100, and the company may roll out the console at around $200 or less.

Apart from the new diskless console release, Microsoft is getting ready to roll out a revised Xbox One S and the product may be available in the market later this year. The console will be powered by the diskless drive and the users will have an option to keep a physical copy of the games over the digital one. 

Microsoft is not rushing towards the removal of the diskless option. The company has not finalised about the Scarlett devices going diskless or not.
