No Xbox One Mini On The Way

One new device you won’t see is a smaller version of Microsoft’s Xbox One.  Rumors were flying that a smaller version of the console that ditched the optical drive and the Kinect device for a strictly online box was on the way.


Currently the device sells for $350, and the rumored mini version was supposed to be less expensive. However, Phil Spencer, the man in charge of Xbox for Microsoft shut those rumors down with two words.  “Not Real.”
