We think of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition as an option that caters to audiences who prefer to find and play their games digitally.

Some have also mentioned their disappointment that the console is just a downgrade, holding no real advantage over the current Xbox One S that does include the disk drive.

Anyone who plans on picking up the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is getting a starter trio of games - Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, and Forza Horizon 3. That makes it $50 less than the Xbox One S, and the company "hopes to maintain" the price difference between both consoles going forward.

Of course, Microsoft seems to be willing to help those commit to an all-digital gaming life, as Thurrott's Brad Sams has recently pointing out that "there will be a "disc-to-digital" program that, as the name states, turns your physical games into digital downloads". And closer to home, the success of Xbox Game Pass, which gives members access to over 100 great games, is just another example of how consumers today have grown to expect great digital content.

Microsoft announced during its Inside Xbox livestream overnight that it's bundling together Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold into one single package.

Update: Microsoft updated its Japanese website with the All-Digital Edition on Wednesday. The system costs $250, which Microsoft asserts is $50 below the $299 MSRP of the original Xbox One S, but retailers typically sell the system for as low as $199.

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will cost users right around $250 United States dollars. that's approximately $50 cheaper than your average Xbox One S... so... maybe consider just getting that one instead?
