Xbox One S Disc-less Console Will Reportedly be Unveiled This Week

“All Digital” Xbox One S launch details and price leaked

Microsoft will make a major change to its Xbox series this year with its disc-less Xbox console.

The All Digitial Xbox One S will fulfil Microsoft's original vision of the Xbox One, that being a device which relies only on digital media and requires a broadband connection to get games and other media. There isn't any major change in the new Xbox except for the absence of the disc drive.

The Xbox One S All-Digital looks nearly identical to the Xbox One S, and comes with a 1TB hard drive.

It also reveals the expected pricing of Xbox One S All-Digital Edition which is said to start at €229.99 (Rs 18,000 approximately).

In the first match of the day, Mumbai Indians took on Rajasthan Royals where MI opener Quinton de Kock slammed 81 off 52 balls. Rajasthan made a strong comeback, removing Surya Kumar Yadav (16) and Kieron Pollard (6) to put the pressure back on the host.

The One S All Digital will come with a 1 TB HDD at launch, on which Microsoft will preload Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft and Sea of Thieves. According to the leak, the Xbox One S all-digital edition will feature 4K support, HDR, and a 1TB internal hard-drive.

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.

We knew that a new disc-free Xbox One would be launching soon and was codenamed as Xbox Maverick, but we didn't really have any more details than that.

If the rumours are true it would confirm the suspicion that Microsoft is aiming to bring cloud-gaming to the fore of its gaming strategy, including pushing further access into its digital subscription Xbox Game Pass.
