Xbox One All-Digital Edition has officially been confirmed by Microsoft and the leaks were right, it does not come with a disk drive. Xbox One All-Digital Edition will release on May 7th and will cost $250 USD. This is a bit higher than what we expected but you do get a bigger HDD and free games out of the box.
Out of the box, the console comes with Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3, and Sea of Thieves. Xbox executive Jeff Gattis talked about the Xbox One All-Digital Edition. He mentioned that the console is a great response to the strong demand for content. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
Gaming and technology have changed quite a bit since the first Xbox debuted in 2001. During this time, we’ve seen a digital transformation across gaming, music, TV, and movies. 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.
While the Xbox One All-Digital does not come with a disk drive, you can still consume content in 4K via Netflix and other content streaming applications that support the high resolution. The specifications of the console are as follows:
- 1TB HDD
- 8-core Custom Jaguar CPU @ 1.75GHz
- Custom GPU @ 914 MHz
- 12 CUs
- 1.4 TFLOPS
- 8 GB DDR3 @ 68 GB/s
- 32 MB ESRAM @ 218 GB/s
While we were expecting this console to cost around $200, Microsoft mentioned that the price is actually $50 less than the Xbox One S. Keeping in mind that the console does come with 3 games out of the box the price is actually around $200.
