if xbox one without a disc drive is only $399

+$49 blu-ray drive is $449

so xbox one with drive (like all the ones we have right now) should be $449 instead of $499 like we all paid?

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

Anyone buying a driveless xbox are morons. They are the ones getting ripped off since you lose blu-ray playback and are a slave to the higher priced digital market.

If this turns out to be true then 'it' has begun, you know?

"Yay! Microsoft listened to us and reversed their policies!"

Slowly but surely we'll get cheaper Xbox One's without disc drives.. DRM will return.. semi-mandatory Kinect a year or so down the line.

2016 comes around and the Xbox One is as it was announced back at the reveal.. and a lot of the hardcore haters of the policies will have been blindsided so hard that they won't even notice until it's too late.

But on topic. No they won't have been ripped off. They paid $500 for a device that was, for the most part, worth $500. I can, however, see at least one person suing for a refund.

Why stop there? They could make it $299 without the Kinect since it's just as vital to the system as the disc drive. Then you could have the Xbox One Poverty Edition.

Why not just play on a PC and use steam instead?
