Microsoft's disc-less Xbox One S launches May 7 for $250

Introducing the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition

What's a disc drive worth to you? If it's $50 (or less), there's a new Xbox that you might be interested in.

All the leaks were spot-on. During today's Inside Xbox stream, Microsoft revealed the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition -- a new model of the Xbox One S that comes without the optical drive, meaning that it's incapable of playing disc-based media. Otherwise, the All-Digital Edition shares all the same features as a standard Xbox One S; it has identical computing specs and a 1TB internal hard drive.

Jeff Gattis, Microsoft's general manager of platform and devices marketing, says "The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is about providing choice. As with anything we work on, our customers are at the center of our product development process and general consumer behavior suggests there's a strong appetite for digital experiences today. We think of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition as an option that caters to audiences who prefer to find and play their games digitally. We're not looking to push customers toward digital; it's about meeting the needs of customers that are digital natives that prefer digital-based media and providing value with the most affordable Xbox One console."

Gattis is adamant about preserving this model's position as "the most affordable Xbox One." The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will launch on May 7 for $250. The standard Xbox One S retails for $300. Gattis explains that Microsoft wants to maintain a $50 (or larger) price gap between the two, because "the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is designed to make console gaming more accessible to more people."

Anyone who plans on picking up the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is getting a starter trio of games -- Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, and Forza Horizon 3. They all come as packed-in digital codes because, well, you know.
