Grab it right now!
A few months ago, we reported Microsoft was working on an Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. It looks exactly the same as the Xbox One S, but doesn't feature a disc drive. The only way to play games on it is by downloading them through the Microsoft Store or purchasing game codes through retailers like Amazon and GameStop.
Today, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition launched at Microsoft Stores, online and in select retailers. According to Microsoft, "the newest member of the Xbox One family, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition offers disc-free gaming and entertainment, creating an affordable way for gamers to start playing Xbox One games." The console allows you to build a library of digital games that travels with you and is available in the cloud.
The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is priced at $249, making it $50 cheaper than the Xbox One S and comes with an additional three games, including Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3. If you're in the market for a new console, be sure to give this edition a go. Eventually, it may become the cheapest Xbox One model because retailers like Amazon regularly discount consoles.
