The new disc-less Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is now available for $249 alongside the original Xbox One S and Xbox One X.
Although the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is just another model that you can select, perhaps the main selling point of the new console is the “All-Digital Edition” portion, which means no Blu-ray drive, and it allows the company to drop the price of the console price around $50.
The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition has the same hardware as the Xbox One S, including the 1TB internal storage, but it comes with three games pre-installed, including Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3.
The only difference is that the new model doesn’t ship with a 4K Blu-ray drive.
The $249 starting price is for the recommended retail price, which is the same, and sometimes even more than the price that you’ll usually see for the original Xbox One S ($299 retail price) when offered as bundled with discounts. However, sales are always part of the marketing strategy to push sales, which means that to make the All-Digital Edition more compelling, the company will have to provide similar discounts to keep the consoles $50 a part.
