Microsoft executive denies rumors of cheaper Xbox One version

Rumors have been circulating that Microsoft is working on a cheaper Xbox One. The rumors claim that the cheaper Xbox One would do without an optical drive. One Microsoft exec has now stepped up and denied that the company is working on a disc free version of the Xbox One. The denial came in the form of a tweeted response to another tweet talking about the rumored $399 disc free Xbox One.

“No, you cannot believe everything you read on the internet,” Chief of Staff for Devices and Studios Group at Microsoft Aaron Greenberg said on twitter when asked about the rumor that Microsoft will drop the price on Xbox One to $399. The rumor about the lower price point came out of a NeoGaf thread that supposedly leaked a lot of Microsoft’s plans for the future. It suggested that the company is working on releasing a white Xbox One console, that Halo 5 will be coming in 2015 while Halo 2 Anniversary will be released this year, and that Crackdown 3 is going to be announced at E3 2014.
