Enter the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition

Microsoft has unveiled the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, its latest home console with an always-connected twist.

It’s an ambitious pitch that embraces the convenience of digital gaming.

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition retains most of the features and design identity of the original Xbox One S, including 1080p resolution high dynamic range (HDR) gaming, alongside 4K HDR video playback. It plays the same games with identical features and performance, now streamlined without the optical disc drive. This console is ideal for those going all-in on digital, cutting initial hardware costs. And with the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition just around the horizon, preorders for the device are live.
