Can Xbox One play Blu-ray discs? That’s a good question. Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn’t offer a native Blu-ray player application on either Xbox One or 360 consoles, so it’s easy to ignore the need for Blu-ray playback. However, most consoles in the Xbox One gaming system can play Blu-ray discs and DVDs. Of course, it depends on the type of Xbox console you have. This article will show you how to play Blu-ray Discs on a compatible Xbox One Console.
