  • Xbox One S ‘All Digital’ leak reveals disc-less console

The rumour was given a second dose of validity when Windows Central corroborated those rumours last month, saying that it'd be called the "Xbox One S All-Digital Edition", and would be available after a "near-global simultaneous launch" in early May.

Microsoft will make a major change to its Xbox series this year with its disc-less Xbox console. There isn't any major change in the new Xbox except for the absence of the disc drive.

Following Microsoft's successful rollout of the Xbox Game Pass subscription service, it makes ideal sense for the company to release the much-rumored digital-only version of its console.

According to the source, Microsoft will launch the Xbox One S All Digital tomorrow, at a special event.

On the bottom border of the box we see that this is a 1TB model which can still play 4K and HDR entertainment but another icon reminds the buyer that there is no disc playing on this console.

That price includes a single controller and three preinstalled games, according to the leak - Minecraft, Sea Of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3. Buyers will be able to pick the bundled games before their console arrives.

As for a release date, that's tipped to be April 16 - this coming Tuesday - with the console on sale in Europe from May 7.

A starter bundle for the normal Xbox One S typically retails for €299.99, though you can find discounts if you shop around.
