This news is leaked by MCV; a gaming world magazine via an unannounced, they say: 'Although the console will not include a disc drive, it will offer compatibility with some sort of interchangeable solid-state card storage, although it is not known whether this will be proprietary or a more standard format such as SD,' MCV's Ben Parfitt, using this new technology, gamers will be able to download games directly from the Xbox live store and store them on a memory card, using a fast SSD instead of a slower Blu-ray or DVD discs make sense when you consider the next generation AMD's processor which will be used on the new Xbox, the good news is that for sure the final price of the Xbox 720 would be interesting without a disc drive, but the bad news is, can you imagine the price of an SSD Xbox 720 game?
More details to come soon, the E3 is coming in Los Angeles in May, lets wait and see.
