All you need to know about the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition
The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is the third major hardware revision made to Microsoft’s home console in the past couple years, released worldwide on May 7th, 2019. It retains the majority of aesthetic and technical adjustments made when the original Xbox One S supplanted the original model, albeit with one key difference: it doesn’t feature an optical disc drive. Does this mean that you won’t be able to play physical games, Blu-Rays and DVDs on it? Exactly right.
This new console iteration represents the platform’s concerted effort to accommodate the ever-changing gaming habits of its players. By picking up an Xbox One S All-Digital Edition you no longer need purchase physical media, instead going letting you go “all-digital” with a game library that is exclusively tied to an Xbox account. Every Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is sold with three games bundled in – Sea of Thieves, Forza Horizon 3 and Minecraft.
A disc-less Xbox One console with three free games in tow
Whereas usually when you buy a new console the onus is on you to pick up a game either separately or as part of a bundle, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition solves that issue for you in that the only way of picking one up is with three downloadable games included. The three games are Sea of Thieves, Minecraft and Forza Horizon 3 – each one a triple-A first-party title exclusive to Xbox One.
