Xbox One S All-Digital getting unveiled this week, out next month

It's an excellent companion to Microsoft's Game Pass (which may soon be bundled with Xbox Live) allowing new console owners to download and play from a rotating list of hundreds of increasingly awesome games. The console itself is rather boring, a big white plastic box that looks exactly like a normal Xbox One X but without a disc drive slot, and it will come with one controller.


Winfuture.de found the images and confirm everything I have reported so far, it's arriving May 7th, will not have a disc drive, and looks just like an Xbox One S. Crucially, the new information states the device will cost 229 euros which is a bit more than I was expecting but this likely includes taxes as well.


Xbox One S All-Digital is also slated to release on 7th May according to the German site and it'll reportedly retail for €230. It also comes with three games pre-loaded, those being Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 3, and Minecraft. The rumour was given a second dose of validity when Windows Central corroborated those rumours last month, saying that it'd be called the "Xbox One S All-Digital Edition", and would be available after a "near-global simultaneous launch" in early May. Buyers will be able to pick the bundled games before their console arrives.


As the console is "disc-less" it is tipped to ship with pre-installed games, meaning that gamers could choose which games they want pre-installed before the console ships. I've had a quick look around at current Xbox One S console pricing in the United Kingdom and notice that the 1TB console with one controller costs £179, and multiple game bundles are available around the £200 mark.
