Microsoft, however, presented a diskless version of the Xbox One S, which has been rumored for at least the last few weeks. The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will be available May 7 for a suggested price of $ 249. The company has no plans to refuse Xbox One S and Xbox One X.
The console received a 1 TB hard drive and a set of three games included: Forza Horizon 3, Sea of Thieves and Minecraft. Inside the console is identical to the Xbox One S with the exception of the optical drive, the absence of which reduced the price.
As noted by The Verge, the idea of a console without a drive for an optical disc was incorporated into the original Xbox One. However, due to the policy of transferring “old” games, it was necessary to act differently.
To use the diskless version of the Xbox One S, you do not need a permanent internet connection, but you need a network to access most of the content.
Also, Microsoft launched the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which at a discount combines Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions – will cost $ 14.99 (RS 2,123) per month.
