I think E3 is when MS will make the big announcement. With new stuff for Kinect (which always looks impressive during stage shows), a new Halo title or a new Gears title and a mod to the X1, they plan to steal the show.

They'll have plenty of time to gather stats till then.

Considering I already have a Sony 3D blu-ray player... I'd be down for a disc-less 1TB Xbox One.  Assuming I was in the market for a console right now.

It's funny because one minute Microsoft are saying they're doing fine and selling loads and the next there's all this talk of trade-ins, cutting prices and features and upping the graphics to match PS4.

Mixed messages you think?

Danny, per usual, has it right. Want to sell the XBone? Release some games! God Dammit!

They should offer not only a discless console,but a kinectless console aswell.

1.How it is now

2.No disc drive with kinect($100 less)

3.No disc drive & no kinect($150 less)

This would definitely boost their sales!They really need to get over the fact that most people don't give a shyt about kinect.A white console?I'd rather have a blue or green if they make it in other colors.

Another cool idea,dual hdds!Would have the room to with that huge disc drive not in the way!

Microsoft are trying there best to tell us they are the best,lets make xbox like win8 like win phone! this is stupid!!! its like trying to make a Volvo like a Lamborghini like a tata.I have a win8 phone which works fine but use win7 pc because win8 does not make a good desktop ui. as for Kinect!! wtf. Microsoft,sack the idiot that talks a lot of shit but sounds great at your boured :-) room meetings, promote the guy that says "is this a good idea" because this guy would bye oculus rift and change gamming/entertainment/ui/ forever ;-)

Now I remember why I come on Gamespot. I've not been on a worthy article in a long time that wasn't overrun by idiot fanboys. Starting to get stupid.

Great so with no blu-ray player it goes from 90% useless to 99% useless, fuck you consoles your a complete waste of money there is not 1 reason to buy a console.

How about no disk drive and no kinect with a 1tb SSD or 2tb HDD for $399? that's a deal

@xincubuzzx  SSD + console sounds like a pretty terrible match. I'm constantly writing and deleting stuff from my console and SSDs have a write cycle limit. I'd imagine I'd have fucked my SSD up within the lifetime of the console easily and they just aren't worth the price increase for the quite marginal increase in speed they tend to give.

Even on PC it only shaves like maybe 30 seconds from the boot times and stuff. Not such a difference to justify the extra cost. Didn't Gamespot themselves say that it shaved maybe 10s off of a game boot? 10s is not worth an extra £100.

@xincubuzzx  Good luck buying a 1TB SSD on it's own for $399 let alone a 1TB SSD with an Xbox attached...
