And if this is making you nervous because you have a large collection of physical discs for your current Xbox, Microsoft has you covered.

Microsoft is also reportedly planning a "disc-to-digital" exchange program that would allow users to turn physical games into download codes, though it remains unclear how exactly this process would work. Players will be able to take their discs into participating retailers (including Microsoft Stores) and trade them in for a "digital entitlement" that can be applied to their Xbox Live account. A disc-less Xbox One does seem likely with Microsoft's push into digital distribution, but I wouldn't expect the company to drop disc support for its next console. I'm not quite sure how removing a disc drive would cut costs that significantly, but Microsoft could be doing that to simply get people into the Xbox brand of consoles.

If you cast your mind back to before the world started crumbling and even before the Xbox One arrived, you might remember that there was much talk of the console being digital-only, with gamers buying digital content with no method of buying games on more traditional discs being available.
