    Do the cons outweigh the pro's though?

    With my young kids, my cases and manuals are generally broken and drawn on. The disks are covered in fingerprints and scratches. Within about 10 minutes of my kids finding a disk, there is no resale anyway! With xboxs scratching disks, the moment you scratch a disk, you have to buy a new, where digital download just allows you to buy it again.

    Personally physical games/disks/movies are archaic, and i can't wait to be done with them.
    Well common sense would say "hey I know my young kids would destroy my discs, so let me keep them away from them!" like I did with my son.


    So yes, the cons outweigh the pros.

    It's good that BluRay is included... Here is my take, I currently have my DVR, 360 & BD player all cabled to my TV. With the One, there will only be one HDMI cable going to my TV and the BD player can be used on another TV in another room... It will simplify my entertainment center and my TV won't have to change inputs for the foreseeable future (after hooking up the One).

    MS has come out and said that they were actually considering a discless console over the Summer. Now that I've had an X1 for a while, I would be on board with that but only if they could work out a distribution model that wasn't reliant solely on downloading games -- e.g., if I could bring a 64gb stick to a store and buy it. This system is so slick with switching between games and apps that it seems disjointed to use discs. The disc drive has also been the weak link of launch from a quality perspective. Maybe rev2 goes discless.

    I wouldn't get a discless Xbox One though, I wouldnt be surprised if they made a version with no disc tray though for those who want to be all digital, but already cos I dont have a bluray player atm means that I want it on my Xbox One :P

    If Microsoft are serious about a diskless future, then need to go aggressive on game prices. Get similar to Steam, and give us usb disk compatibility for extra space.

    Im dying to go diskless, especially if they could do rental, but the prices are silly currently.

    I thought I read that Microsoft said they will allow usb hard drives to be connected to the Xbox one in the future so space can be added.

    HDD's aren't that expensive either but there still is a 500 Gb non - removable. Not like the entire HDD is for your use. The OS its running on will also take up space. I would rather have another HDD than a blu ray drive.
    Everyone does know, you can upgrade the drive in the Xbox one now ? IT does void your warrany tho. I watched a video with someone upgrading it to 1tb..

    You need to pull the drive, connect 2 drives to your PC (the Xbox one drive and your drive your going to replace it on), run a few Linux based scripts and put the new drive in the xbox one, it will copy all your data over to the new drive...

    There is a few videos up on youtube on how to do it..

    I wont touch it because of my warranty on it but, after the warranty is up, I might attempt it...

    Most consumer don't respect that the price difference between the PS4 and Xbox One is due to the Kinect. They assume it should just be a part of the console that doesn't really increase the cost. Stripping out the blue ray drive would lead consumers to think that it was just inferior to the PS4 (and in some ways it would be). Even for people who don't use discs, it would seemed like the ripped out some functionality that was available in the PS4.

    Also I would imagine with all of the new TV hardware coming out, something will be out that will surpass Blue Ray in 10 years. In that case you would have a drive for that type of media.

    Most of the Kinects functions with Xbox one is voice recognition. I don't see why they can't get rid of the camera and just have a microphone built into the console, the controller or just use the supplied microphone. I am not sure how much of the Kinect plays in the actual processing of the voice recognition or not-it may not even be possible.
