Previously, we got word that a disc-less Xbox One was in the making.
Recently, details of the new Xbox One S All-Digital surfaced online. Though obviously not official, this gives us an insight on what to expect with the new console that would be released sometime in May.
Here’s a mockup of the box, courtesy of Windows Central.
Notice the disc-less symbol at the bottom. If one were to zoom in on the console itself, you’d notice the lack of a disc drive and eject button. Similar to its disc-supporting sibling, the Xbox One S All-Digital will have up to 1TB in its HDD, and looks to support 4K Ultra HD among other features.
Also, you’d probably notice the games list in the bottom, more or less confirming the rumour that the Xbox One S All-Digital would be shipped with these games pre-loaded in a nice digital bundle. The games reportedly included, as seen in the mockup, are Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3 (strangely, not 4).
No price has been listed on the new model yet. Of course, everything you see here is all speculative, so definitely take it with a grain of salt.
Previously codenamed “Maverick“, this new member to the Xbox One family would completely ditch the use of Blu-Ray discs, signalling a shift to purely digital gaming, at least on Microsoft’s side. However, it may not seem the case, as Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox entries, codenamed “Anaconda” and “Lockhart”, don’t seem to have any disc-less support, but we’ll only find out for sure in due time.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
