Disc-less Xbox One S release reportedly May as box art leaks

Xbox One S All-Digital

Considering this will already be the most affordable Xbox One ever, Microsoft is making a serious play for newcomers and those on a tight budget.

From these images, the Xbox One S Al-Digital looks like a more streamlined version of the original Xbox One S (minus the eject button and disc drive).

The disc-less Xbox One S that's rumored to be in development over at Microsoft will be called the "Xbox One S All-Digital Edition" and launch on May 7, 2019.

The three games that WindowsCentral is reporting are Forza Horizon 3, Sea of Thieves and Minecraft. This clearly has Game Pass owners in mind and is the ideal fit for someone who wants to use the console as a subscription box, downloading and playing games as and when they drop onto the service.

Once merged, users will be able to send messages from one platform to another. Just long press the message and tap "Reply".

The materials for this leak come via the supposed Xbox One S All-Digital Edition box. Exact pricing, however, still isn't known.

For at least a few months now, we've been hearing rumors of an upcoming all-digital Xbox One S. This rumored console is said to ship without a disc drive, which would essentially make it the entry-level machine for the Xbox One family.

According to Windows Central, the image you see at the top of this story is an accurate representation of the product shot that the site received recreated in Photoshop to protect the source. As such, if you're contemplating buying an Xbox, it'd probably be best to wait it out and see what Microsoft has to announce.
