I thought the first (current generation) was the Nintendo Switch? Or does it have one?

Don't own one, so I dunno!

EDIT: Still the Switch does have a physical media, so same thing really as a disc drive.

Anyway back on topic... Yea I can guess 2nd hand game stores will not like this trend appearing on consoles!

PS5 confirmed to be backward compatible, with a disc drive.
It's probably Microsoft's way of offering a cheaper version of the Xbox One, for those that don't need a disc drive.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

All digital? Even with a disc drive, it's still all digital. Of course, if want to nitpick, the audio out from the controllers for headphones is analog. smile

Also, Nintendo 64 had no disc drive along with all other cartridge-based consoles.


The issue is not p*ssy. The issue is monkey.

Technically yes it doesn't have a disc drive. Obviously the OP meant no physical media drive because cartridge based consoles existed before disc based ones though. wink

For Nintendo consoles I prefer cartridges even if the load a bit slower because you can get the games cheaper 2nd hand and then sell them. Nintendo games hold value.
