Xbox One S All-Digital "Maverick" Console Reportedly Releasing on May 7

Microsoft's rumored console hasn't been announced yet, but it's taking shape regardless.

The Internet is buzzing over rumors about an incoming disc-free version of the Xbox One S. Though the system is only a rumor, it's strong enough that Windows Central posted a potential release date in addition to possible box art.

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, which is reportedly code named "Maverick," is supposedly a disc-free version of the Xbox One S console. That means any and all games for the system must be downloads. According to the latest report by Windows Central, a simultaneous global May 7 launch is planned.

Windows Central also reports that the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition looks very much like a regular Xbox One S, but it lacks a disc tray (don't try to jam your game CDs in one of the vent slots). Product shots indicate the system might have a 1TB HDD, and it will come with codes for Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, and Forza Horizon 3. Though Windows Central says it has pictures of the actual box art for the scaled-down Xbox, it re-created the image in Photoshop to protect its sources. Though it was believed the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition might come with a subscription to Xbox Game Pass (Microsoft's digital game subscription service), there isn't anything on the box that indicates a free subscription is enclosed.

Finally, Windows Central reports the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition has the lowest price of any iteration of the Xbox on the market, but the rumor mill seemingly hasn't gotten a hold of that price. If the All-Digital Edition actually materializes, Microsoft will almost certainly market it as an affordable way to enjoy the Xbox One's game library.

If the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition pulls a Mr. Snuffleupagus and reveals itself to be real, USG will right there to tell you everything about it.
