Microsoft Xbox One S All Digital Leak shows a new disk-less console is on the way.
What is known?
Microsoft will soon launch its first game console without an optical drive, the Xbox One S All Digital. We have now found various information about the new, completely download-oriented Xbox console. Including, pictures, details on equipment, prices and the launch date.
In fact, the new Xbox One S All Digital Edition will carry just that name. Already on the packaging, the manufacturer makes it clear what they should offer: Disc-free gaming or gaming without data carriers is there talk. So the device relies entirely on downloads as the only source for games, with three titles preinstalled at the factory.
Like Microsoft already delivers Minecraft, Sea Of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3 on the Xbox One S All Digitalas pre-installed games with. If you want to buy more games, the user must go the way through the Microsoft Store. The Game Pass also gives users access to an ever-expanding library of over 100 games that can be freely downloaded thanks to a paid monthly subscription, as on the other Xbox models.
The packaging of the Xbox One S All Digital makes it clear from the outside what’s in it.
Optically (almost) like the One S
Visually, the Xbox One S All Digital almost completely matches the normal Xbox One S, but Microsoft has virtually “erased” the drive on the front. Where previously the slot for the insertion of optical media is, the front cover is now simply pulled through. Inside the device is a 1 terabyte hard drive, which should at least initially provide sufficient space for the installation of games.
Price and When to expect?
The Xbox One S All Digital, which will launch for € 229.99, comes with only a single Xbox One Wireless Controller in the standard color of white next to the console. Other features of the Xbox One S All Digital console are listed on the box of the device: 4K Ultra HD videos are of course supported as before, and logically, HDR support is still on board.
With a corresponding symbol on the packaging, Microsoft also makes clear that here no optical media are supported. The Xbox One S All Digital will be available in Europe from May 7, 2019, and may presumably be pre-ordered shortly after the first presentation expected on April 16th.
