Xbox One S All Digital Release Date and Price Leaked

Microsoft's newest Xbox One S could be coming out soon.

The pricing for Microsoft's rumored all digital Xbox One S may have just been leaked in Europe. According to German website WinFuture, a listing for the disc-less system was spotted retailing for €229.99, or roughly $260 USD. Its release date is reported to be set for May 7.

Its been rumored for some time that Microsoft is planning to release an all digital Xbox One system. It's designed to be an even slimmer version of the Xbox One S, only without a disc drive. That means it can't play physical media like game discs or Blu-rays, and instead will only be able to play games purchased digitally on the Xbox Marketplace.

The all digital Xbox One S concept also works great with Microsoft's current digital focus for the Xbox, with services like the Xbox Game Pass and upcoming XCloud streaming service. Game Pass is like Netflix, where for $9.99 a month, players have unlimited access to a library of Xbox One games, so long as their subscription is valid.

First-party Xbox games are also day one releases on Game Pass, so you can play games like Gears 5 on Game Pass the same day it launches on retail. This is something that will no doubt become of greater value once Microsoft's new collection of first-party studios start releasing games.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is also planning to launch a competing video game streaming service called XCloud, which is similar to Google Stadia. Like Stadia, users will be able to stream video games directly to their consoles, further eliminating the need for physical media.

The rumored price for the all digital Xbox One S is priced more expensive than most Xbox One S consoles available now. You can find Xbox One S consoles with disc drives for about $230 USD at most online retailers pretty easily.

We'll hopefully get confirmation on the all digital Xbox One console soon, along with concrete pricing and release details likely during one of Microsoft's Inside Xbox livestream showcases.
