As Sony not participating in E3 next yearMicrosoft has noted that they're trying to innovate in the gaming market, particularly with the introduction of an in-the-works cloud gaming service. But it could also be experimenting with a system model that relies more on digital downloads than running on discs -- and we might just see it sooner rather than later.

A report from Thurrott suggests that Microsoft is already hard at work on a new Xbox model that doesn't utilize a disc drive. As a result, it'll rely specifically on digital downloadable games, and will run much less in price than its current Xbox One S model -- to the tune of around $200.

And again the company is also considering a program in which it’ll be offering a "disc-to-digital" swap out, in which players can bring in their games and get digital codes in return. It's unknown if this is just for Microsoft first-party games, or if third-party game like Red Dead Redemption 2 is included.

The report goes further notes, "As for Scarlett (the reported next hardware from the company), Microsoft is still trying to decide if that console will include a disc drive but should be making the final decision here soon". Here's more clue about the new console on a video below.

Take this report with a grain of salt. Since Microsoft has not made a note about its plans for hardware in 2019, as it likely was going to stand by its current Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles, since they're still selling reasonably well with Xbox one.

Like we said, nothing has been confirmed yet, but we'll see what Microsoft announces over the next few months. It'll certainly be interesting to see how a disc-free system performs and looks like, not to mention what kind of impact it'll have on the retail market and their users.
