Here's Your First Look at the Disc-Less Xbox One S

Adjust Comment Print

It was previously revealed by Thurrott.com that Microsoft are working on a disc-less Xbox One console.

In terms of design, we expect the All-Digital Edition to look exactly like the Xbox One S - albeit without an eject button and disc drive. It will also co-exist with the Xbox One S and not completely replace it, indicating that Microsoft (and the gaming community) is not ready to fully ditch physical discs yet.

More details surrounding the disc-less Xbox One S All-Digital console have apparently been leaked, including a release date of May 7th, 2019.

Thanks to plenty of rumors, we've known that a disc-less version of the Xbox One S has been in the works for a few weeks now - even though Microsoft is yet to publicly acknowledge the new console.

How much will the Xbox One S All-Digital cost? Windows Central says this information stems from documentation that the publication was able to get ahold of.

Seems a bit of an error not to bundle in the wildly popular system-seller Forza Horizon 4, but 3 is still a very solid game for the package.

Windows Central noted that there wasn't any sign of an Xbox Game Pass bundle, which is odd.

What will the Xbox One S All-Digital offer?

Halo franchise director Frank O'Connor has moved to reassure fans that Halo Infinite will indeed be coming to the Xbox One.

But the Halo bigwig responded: "I have no idea what leak you're talking about, but Halo Infinite will be released for Xbox One and appropriately spec'd PCs".

Just days after Google unveiled its "vision for the future of gaming" at GDC 2019, we appear to be getting a glimpse of another company's future-facing vision.

The release date also matches previous speculation, with an unveiling still likely to happen in April and a pre-order period to take place up to the second week of May.
