Although it was a fact given the number of leaks in recent days on Xbox One All-Digital, it was not until the Inside Xbox tonight when Microsoft has seen fit to present in society its new commitment to the console market. It will be available from May 7 and will have a starting price of $249.
Xbox One S All-Digital Edition will be a machine 100% focused on downloadable content designed for audiences looking for a more affordable device, as well as for those fully made to their libraries in the cloud. In this sense, the intention of the manufacturer is that its purchase cost is always 50 dollars cheaper than the market price received by the standard Xbox One S.
In addition, the device will be accompanied by video games Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3 and Sea of Thieves as purchase incentives.
Redmond’s hope that their launch will help them to better understand the consumer and their behaviour with respect to the digital format in order to offer better experiences in the future to reach 2,000 million players.
“Functionally, Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is as powerful as Xbox One S. The only difference is that it does not include an optical disc reader,” Microsoft said in a statement, recalling that the rest of the specifications, such as the dimensions of the device, they will remain completely intact.
The one that will not give up boxed games for its premiere will be PlayStation 5, which in its first details has confirmed support for the physical format. His presentation, likewise, reminds us of the little successful PSP Go, although, to be fair, the industry has changed a lot since then. From 3DJuegos, however, we already anticipate this announcement and we recently discussed the future consoles should have support for physical games. What do you think?.
