No DVD or Blu-ray drive for Xbox 720

Some crazy news has just been reported by MVC regarding the upcoming Xbox 720 games console.

According to sources the Xbox 720 will not feature a DVD or Blu-ray drive, meaning that media will either be in the form of a digital download or will be saved onto what will most likely be some sort of interchangeable SSD storage system.

When you think about it, this is absolutely ridiculous because users technically won’t be able to load up older games, from discs, that they’ve paid good money for.

Whilst this does sound crazy, it’s also pushing the Xbox further into the digital market, which is technically more reliable seen as though something that is digital can just be re-downloaded if it becomes corrupt, unlike a disc which you’d have to purchase again.

Do you reckon this is something that Microsoft would do? Let us know your thoughts in the comments, or on Facebook and Twitter.
