Microsoft’s new Xbox doesn’t use any discs

Microsoft to Launch Xbox One S 'All-Digital Edition' in May

Xbox merges Live Gold and Game Pass under Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

The Xbox One SAD comes with digital copies (obviously) of Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3 and Sea of Thieves. They'll be showcasing trailers for unannounced titles that will arrive later this year, as well as trailers and in-depth looks at games that we do already know about. You'll just need a speedy internet connection to access them on short notice. Prior to the announcement, rumors percolated that the expansion would also include Nintendo Switch, but the company stayed mum about Xbox Live compatibility with the smash hit console. Any games you unlock and download via your Gold subscription are yours to keep even if the subscription lapses. "Whether you play your games on Xbox One or on a PC, are fans of RPGs, first-person shooters and everything in between, or just like watching others play games, there will be something for everyone at E3". "The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition was created for those who prefer to find and play their games digitally and are looking for the most affordable way to play Xbox games", said Xbox executive Jeff Gattis. You won't be able to purchase cheap used games, and digital titles go on sale less often.

The new deal will save anyone who was subscribing to both services $5 per month, and the package will be tested on Xbox Insiders. Unlike the PS4 Pro or the PS4, 4K UHD Blu-ray playback is a big bonus for the Xbox One S. Except of course for this particular model that's not really saving you much cash. Pre-orders are available now, and deliveries / availability will begin from 7 May 2019.
