Microsoft Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is a disc-less console for $249

17 April 2019 3

As speculated in a bunch of rumors since past few months, Microsoft's Xbox One S All-Digital Edition actually exists and has just been made official. As the name suggests, this new gaming console focuses only on digital gaming with no room for physical discs of any kind. It is Microsoft's attempt at testing the market for digital-only consoles.

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition looks exactly the same as the standard Xbox One S. They both even share a similar footprint which might leave some disappointed. The biggest difference between the two is that the All-Digital Edition does not feature an optical disc player. It means the console will not be able to play any physical Xbox games. The same holds true for Blu-Ray movie discs which you might be having or buying in the future.


Microsoft has launched the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition with 1TB storage capacity. It comes with three pre-installed games Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3. There is also a one month free Xbox Live Gold membership to help buyers get started with everything that Microsoft has to offer. It has not announced any special offers for the time being which means the Gold membership will cost the same as it costs on other Xbox consoles.

As for the pricing, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition has been priced at $249 with sales starting May 7th. This is about $50 cheaper than the Xbox One S with disc player. The pricing difference is not that significant which will make it interesting to see how many units Microsoft will be able to sell.
