I have a cassette tape player in my 1998 model car. I haven’t owned a cassette in a decade at least. The same may be the case for the Xbox One which will be marketed to people who probably no longer listen on music on CDs. Then again, if you have old CDs, this might be the only CD player in your house.
Sony announced some details on things the Playstation 4 can and can’t do, and I had sent a question over to Microsoft about whether the Xbox One would be able to beat those features. I’ve just now received an answer and, yes, the Xbox One can play audio CDs.
