Xbox One S Disc-less Console Will Reportedly be Unveiled This Week

“All Digital” Xbox One S launch details and price leaked

“All Digital” Xbox One S launch details and price leaked

Following Microsoft's successful rollout of the Xbox Game Pass subscription service, it makes flawless sense for the company to release the much-rumored digital-only version of its console. There isn't any major change in the new Xbox except for the absence of the disc drive. There's also a picture of the thing, which looks...pretty much like an Xbox One S without the disc drive.

Other tidbits we learn are support for 4K video playback and HDR.

It is also worth noting that it will come pre-installed with Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3, which is a nice way to put the cherry on top of this deal.

The latest leak is similar to what Windows Central reported last month.

Reports have also been circulating that Microsoft is in the process of developing a program codenamed Odessa, that allows Xbox One owners to trade in older CD games for tokens to download their digital versions. Buyers will be able to pick the bundled games before their console arrives.

If the rumours are true it would confirm the suspicion that Microsoft is aiming to bring cloud-gaming to the fore of its gaming strategy, including pushing further access into its digital subscription Xbox Game Pass.

From what we know at the moment, it seems as though the Xbox One S All Digital will only be available in white, will come complete with a single controller, and it could be unveiled by Microsoft on April 16.
