There have been reports recently that Microsoft has developed a disc-less edition of the Xbox One S. Players will only be able to get games online as they won’t be able to pop a disc in the console. A new report reveals that the company might be launching the “Xbox One S All-Digital Edition” on May 7th.
Documents obtained by Windows Central are accompanied by box art images that the site has recreated. Microsoft is going to call this console the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition since it won’t have a Blu-ray drive. That’s also going to make this console cheaper, allowing those who have been on the fence about the Xbox One S to purchase it at a lower price.
It’s pertinent to mention here that there hasn’t even been an acknowledgment from Microsoft that it’s developing something of this sort. So an official comment on the matter is yet to arrive. The report mentions that Microsoft will ship this console with a 1TB hard drive in addition to pre-installed digital versions of Forza Horizon 3, Minecraft, and Sea of Thieves.
Microsoft may also offer customers an option to ship the console with pre-install games so that customers can select which games they want to be pre-installed on their consoles before it arrives at their doorstep.
