The disc-less console costs $249.99 and bundles three games.
Microsoft has finally unveiled its next Xbox console, except it’s probably not the one you’re thinking. Leaked prior to the recent Inside Xbox show, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will release on May 7th. It will retail for $249.99, which is $50 cheaper than the current Xbox One S, and can currently be pre-ordered.
The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition doesn’t have a Blu-ray Disc Drive. Instead, it offers a completely digital solution to potential consumers with three bundled games – Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3, and Sea of Thieves. It also features a free one month subscription to Xbox Live Gold. The initial three months of Xbox Game Pass are also available for just $1 (though this likely applies for new users only).
Later, you can also pick up the recently announced Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $15 per month. This includes both Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass, providing both free games and a library of over 100 titles to access digitally. It won’t be available till later this year though, so stay tuned for more details.
