Introducing the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition - The Digital Age Commercial

Microsoft to Launch Xbox One S 'All-Digital Edition' in May

The rumors were true.

Microsoft officially announced a new, all-digital version of the Xbox One during the latest episode of Inside Xbox today, confirming previous rumours.

Subscribers get to download the games in full fidelity to play them offline - there's unlimited gameplay as long the customer remains a subscriber. That might nudge some people to drop $250 on the device when it launches in a few weeks, but the pricing still seems too high. It's aimed at "digital natives", according to Microsoft's Jeff Gattis - primarily teens who grew up without the discs and cartridges that older games relied upon. This seems mainly like a play to attract new gamers who don't have a giant library of now-useless discs. Called xCloud, the service will allow gamers to play console-quality Xbox games on any device - including smartphones.

Commuters walking across the bridge, which is completely closed to traffic, were forced to weave between crowds of demonstrators. Some activists glued themselves to a train while others chained themselves to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn's garden fence.

Update: According to Tech Crunch the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will come with download codes for three games: Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, and Forza Horizon 3. And when the standard Xbox One S is on sale with a bundled game (as it now is with several different permutations on Xbox's own website), The All-Digital Edition, despite having three games included, looks less convincing as the budget-friendly option. Otherwise, the console will be exactly the same as the current One S. It's clear the All-Digital Edition and new Game Pass Ultimate tier are meant to dovetail together, but since neither is dramatically cheaper than the existing alternatives, the entire package feels slightly lacklustre.

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will be sold alongside the OG Xbox One S and Xbox One X and is available for preorder now.

Furthermore, you'll get a free month of Xbox Live Gold (which gives you multiplayer access, among other goodies) and a "special offer" for Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass service, which has been called the "Netflix of games" in the past. For those paying month-by-month, subscribing to Game Pass Ultimate would save about $5 every time since each service on its own now comes with a $9.99 per-month pricetag.
