The announcement comes from Mike Ybarra who posted on his official Twitter account that Xbox One S will feature Blu-Ray support.

For those who don’t know BD-R stands for Blu-Ray Recordable and BD-RE stands for Blu-Ray recordable erasable. These discs allow you to save or record your data on them. The recordable ones can only be written once and recordable erasable ones can be written over and over again.

Xbox One S has been quite successful as the console managed to outperform PlayStation 4 for three month in a row. However, Microsoft’s upcoming console will launch in Holiday 2017, and there are a lot of expectations riding on that console.

According to Industry analysts Microsoft has beaten Sony in the battle of specs as PS4 Pro packs 4.2 TFLOPS of computational power, and Xbox One Scorpio packs 6 TFLOPS. However, according Mark Cerny PS4 Pro could achieve the 8.4 TFLOPS.

According to Michael Goodman, director of digital media strategies at Strategy Analytics, price is the only factor that can kick Xbox One Scorpio out of the market.

The only thing they could do is price themselves out of the market. [Microsoft] doesn’t have to announce that for quite sometime.

While not many people use the Blu-Ray to record their data, but it is certainly good to see that Microsoft is thinking about those users who use the physical media.
