Rumours had begun to emerge several days ago that Microsoft was planning to announce a new “mini” or slim version of its Xbox One console during a hardware event in October.

The new Xbox One Slim would reportedly not have a Blu-ray drive, thus reducing its form factor and cutting manufacturing costs down exponentially while being a digital-only console. It seems that said rumour may have been just that however according to Xbox division boss Phil Spencer.

Responding to a fan on Twitter who asked about rumours of a micro Xbox One, Spencer replied, “Not true.”

It wouldn’t be the first time that Microsoft said it wasn’t creating a slim version of its console and then went on to announce said model several years later as was the case with the Xbox 360. Regardless, this doesn’t seem to be the plan right now according to Spencer. We’ll wait till October to be fully sure but in the meantime, don’t get your hopes up.

    years haha man thats like next month!!

    Cutting the Bluray drive out would take away about $10 at most and they would still keep the console big because the whole point of it was to help the cooling out

    Said not “not real” in response to someone asking if a new xbox one mini was coming out in October. That was never the rumor. The question is whether a new version of the console—in any form—would be ANNOUNCED in October.

    If they can get rid of the monstrous power brick, I’ll buy one- Blu Ray or not. If the idea of having a big console is for cooling, why not integrate power supply into said big box? C’mon if Sony can figure it out…
