Microsoft has announced a new edition in its Xbox One lineup of gaming consoles. This new edition from Microsoft is it’s latest after the Xbox One S and One X launched a few years ago. Interestingly, this gaming console from Microsoft is an All-Digital one from the company. Also, it is aptly named as the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition.
As this is a gaming console made for digital-only games, there is no optical disk slot on it. This means that you cannot play the physical games purchased for the Xbox One series on this console. The only way you can play games on it is via downloading the games from Microsoft Store.

Microsoft Xbox One S All-Digital Edition comes with three bundled games at $249
We know that Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will have limited buyers. But Microsoft’s decision to launch this digital-only gaming console in Xbox One series makes sense as well. As most of the gamers download games rather than buying physical disc’ nowadays. Interestingly, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is the same as the Xbox One S in most of the departments.
Microsoft could have added some refreshes to boost sales of this product. But we are also expecting Microsoft to announce something big at the E3 2019 very soon.
Since it is same as the Xbox One S Standard Edition, you still don’t get 4K support. Therefore, it will not be possible for you to download and play 4K games on this console as well.
But you can do so on the Xbox One X Edition which is priced $200 higher than the Xbox One S. You do get HDR support for games on the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition though. Although you cannot play 4K games on this console, you can still stream 4K content on digital platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and others.
Talking about its price, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is $50 cheaper than Xbox One S standard edition. You can get the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition for $249 and there are three bundled games on offer with this console.
These games are Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3 and Sea of Thieves. As for availability, Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will be available globally from May 7.
Microsoft says that this edition of the Xbox One S will be available on both its offline and online channels. The company says that this console is made for games who are looking for “most affordable way to play Xbox games digitally”
