Microsoft has kept mentioning during its latest press conferences that it wants to focus all its attention to improve the Game Pass subscription service that Xbox One fans get to use. Well, it looks like this is proving to be true because the folks at Thurrot have reported that Microsoft is planning to launch two new versions of Xbox One S during the upcoming future. The interesting thing about these new versions of Xbox One S is that one of them will be equipped with cheaper hardware parts while the other version will be disc-less.
Disc-Less Xbox One S
The first thing that we need to mention about the disc-less Xbox One S is that this means that people who already own a bunch of Xbox One or Xbox One S games will not be able to add them to their libraries because the new console doesn’t read disks. However, Microsoft has already thought of things and came up with a solution.
Trade Physical Copies of Games for Download Codes
The solution that Microsoft has come up for this issue is for Xbox One S fans to head over to Microsoft Stores and turn in their physical copies of games in exchange for download codes. Microsoft has yet to announce if players will be able to do this at other stores such as BestBuy and Walmart.
Affordable Xbox One S
If having to trade in all your Xbox One S games in exchange for download codes sounds annoying, then you should know that Microsoft is making up for that by lowering the price of the disk-less Xbox One S to $199. This means that Microsoft is shaving off $100 of the price when compared to the standard Xbox One S console.
