Xbox One was Originally Planned as a Digital-Only Console
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.02.2014



Speaking to OXM, Microsoft's Phil Spencer revealed that the Xbox One was originally conceived as a digital-only console.

The company eventually decided against the idea due to bandwidth issues and file sizes.

Spencer stated, "Obviously, after the announcement and E3, there was some feedback about what people wanted to change."

He added: "There was a real discussion about whether we should have an optical disc drive in Xbox One or if we could get away with a purely disc-less console, but when you start looking at bandwidth and game size, it does create issues. So we decided - which I think was the right decision - to go with the Blu-ray drive and give the people an easy way to install a lot of content. From some of those original thoughts, you saw a lot of us really focusing on the digital ecosystem you see on other devices - thinking of and building around that."
