Microsoft unveils disc-less Xbox One S All-Digital Edition for $249

Microsoft is making its disc-less Xbox One S official today. After weeks of leaks, the software maker is unveiling the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, which is priced at $249 and will be available on May 7th. This is a new model that will be sold alongside the original Xbox One S, and the more powerful Xbox One X.

Microsoft is including a 1TBB HDD on this new digital model alongside digital versions of Forza Horizon 3Sea of Thieves, and Minecraft in the box. The hardware is exactly the same as existing Xbox One S consoles, just without the 4K Blu-ray drive.

“The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is $50 less than Xbox One S and we expect to maintain at least this price difference between the two consoles,” explains Jeff Gattis, general manager of Platform and Devices Marketing at Microsoft. This is $50 less than the recommended retail price of $299 for the existing Xbox One S, but there are regularly bundle deals available for around $230. It’s not clear if we’ll see similar bundles for this all-digital version.
