Xbox One S All Digital gaming console launched: Price, features and availability

Buyers will be able to fill up a good chunk of that from day one, as the All-Digital comes with download codes for Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3.

Set for a worldwide release on 7 May, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will be flogged for $249.99 (around £200), which makes it some $50 less expensive than the current disk-drive-touting Xbox One. Which is more than enough, considering that my Xbox One X now has space-hoggers such as Anthem, Forza Horizon 3, The Division 2 and numerous smaller games between, while still leaving me plenty of space for a few more downloads. Previously, you had to go into Settings to restart the console, and this new Restart button will make the process much faster.

In a post on Twitter earlier today, Microsoft confirmed that the Xbox E3 Briefing would be taking place on Sunday, June 9 at 1PM PT, 4PM ET, and 9PM BST.

Original story: The Xbox One S All-Digital console, Microsoft's first disc-less Xbox, is reportedly getting unveiled this week. In addition to three games, you get a bundled controller as well. Shaving off a huge portion of the system's multimedia capabilities in favor of a $50 "savings" just isn't adding up, especially when retailers like Rakuten are selling the Xbox One S bundled with Battlefield V for $199.

The difference is simple but significant - the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition has no Blu-Ray player.

Microsoft is also developing a videogame streaming service. They require Xbox LIVE Gold to play with others online, making the Xbox One S a doorway into more service purchases.

"The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition was created for those who prefer to find and play their games digitally and are looking for the most affordable way to play Xbox games". However, any digital Xbox content you own will be available on the All-Digital Edition.
