All-Digital Xbox One S Model Formally Announced

Microsoft today confirmed the existence of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition Console.

Rumors regarding a disc-less Xbox One S have been floating around for months now, and Microsoft today pulled back the curtain. During today’s episode of Inside Xbox, the company formally announced the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition.

As promised, the console lacks a disc drive and relies entirely on digital purchases and streaming content. Other than that, the console looks and performs exactly like a regular Xbox One S. The bundle comes packed with a white Xbox One S, white controller, and digital copies of Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 3, and Minecraft. For storage, players get a 1TB HDD, which is a bit disappointing considering this is a digital-only console. It does come with a 1 month Xbox Live Gold trial, but not a Game Pass subscription. Though, those who purchase the console on launch day can nab three months of Game Pass for $1.

The bundle also comes in at a higher price than expected. Speculation about the price suggested it may have arrived at $199.99. In actuality, the bundle is going to set you back $249.99.

Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is out May 7. You can pre-order now through the Microsoft Store and select retailers.
