The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition was criticized for its price at launch, up at $250. Despite dropping the disc drive, it was still more expensive than some of the competing disc-based Xbox One S bundles out there, making the loss of 4K Blu-ray playback hard to justify. Thanks to Prime Day, however, the Xbox One S All-Digital is far closer to being priced as it should.
Dropping down to $200, the Prime Day bundle not only includes all of the previously-touted games, including Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 3, and Minecraft but also comes with the incredibly sexy Phantom White Xbox controller. The Phantom White controller has a fading translucent shell, giving you an intimate look at the world's greatest controller's internals.
Drop the discs
The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition Prime Day bundle finally represents the cheapest point of entry to the Xbox ecosystem in the U.S., complete with three games and a sexy limited edition controller.
The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition might not have a disc drive, but it makes up for it with 4K streaming media playback, for apps like Netflix, Hulu, and more. It outputs gameplay at full HD, around 1080p resolution, and supports all current-gen games, along with hundreds of Xbox titles of yesteryear thanks to backward compatibility with the OG Xbox and Xbox 360.
It comes bundled with Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 3, and Minecraft to get you started, and throwing in a subscription to Xbox Game Pass can instantly expand your library to over a hundred games, Netflix-style.
The Phantom White controller is also an excellent addition to this bundle, which is typically $90 (although it has its own Prime Day sale, putting it at $70. The translucent shell gives the controller a unique, if eerie appearance, making it an excellent addition to any collection.
