Xbox One S All-Digital Edition Official Release Date Confirmed (VIDEO)
Over the past few weeks, several leaks have seemingly confirmed an all-new version of the Xbox One touting an “all-digital” design. Called the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, the unconfirmed console was rumored to lack a hard-drive and would only be able to play digital Xbox games, whether it be traditional downloadable titles or through Xbox Game Pass.
As part of the new Inside Xbox event. the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition has now been officially revealed. “Go all digital with the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition and build a library of digital games that travels with you and is available in the cloud,” the announcement reads. “Take your cloud saves on the go, and enjoy the ability to preorder and pre-install upcoming games so you’re ready to play the moment they launch.” Check out the official reveal trailer below.
The reveal of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition comes shortly after today’s reveal of the PlayStation 5, where a number of hardware specs for the Sony system were finally introduced. Of the many confirmations, backward compatibility, SSD storage, ray tracing as well as physical media were among the most exciting, placing the ball squarely in Xbox’s court whether they can match such aspirations with their own upcoming system. We’ll likely know more about that when E3 2019 arrives this April.
The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is scheduled to release May 7th.
