Microsoft has announced the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition console. It’s the same as the current Xbox One S, but with one big difference. There’s no physical media player. Just like the name implies, the budget console is meant for gamers willing to give up discs and go all-in on virtual consumption. Buyers of the new console will get $50 off the price of the regular Xbox One S, putting pre-orders at a svelte $249.99, in exchange for giving up their game resale rights. To sweeten the deal, the All-Digital comes bundled with Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, and Forza Horizon 3.
Gaming and technology have changed quite a bit since the first Xbox debuted in 2001.
The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will be available starting on May 7th. Oh, for the bygone days, when gamers lost their minds at the idea of an Xbox that required an online connection!
