Microsoft have officially announced that their long-rumoured digital-only Xbox One S console will launch on May 7th 2019.
The console is pretty much just an Xbox One S without the disc slot, aimed at those who are happy to go digital only. It makes sense as a second device in a house that already has an Xbox One and simply wants another console to use game sharing or for someone who wants to save a little money and isn’t bothered about physical media. The one other major feature it lacks in losing the drive is the ability to play UHD Blurays, though it can still play digital movies from the Microsoft store and streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
The new Xbox will retail at £199 and is now available to pre-order from various stores such as Amazon and Microsoft’s own store.
