Microsoft’s All Digital Console Might Arrive Later Than Expected

Microsoft seems to be planning to launch a new Xbox One S, codenamed "Maverick", which will cut the disk drive completely and become the first all-digital version of the Xbox One.

Product photos received by the publication indicate the All-Digital system will be virtually identical to the existing Xbox One S, except without a disc drive and an eject button.

Earlier this month, Windows Central reported that the Xbox One S All-Digital, as it's supposedly called, could be revealed as early as next month.

More details surrounding the disc-less Xbox One S All-Digital console have apparently been leaked, including a release date of May 7th, 2019.

This is rumoured to be up to $100 cheaper than the Xbox One S, which now has an RRP of £249.99 in the UK.


Windows Central noted that there wasn't any sign of an Xbox Game Pass bundle, which is odd.

All signs suggest that we will be hearing more about this console in the coming weeks. That means there's no Blu-ray drive, instead the gaming experience will be digital-only. Windows Central says this information stems from documentation that the publication was able to get ahold of.

Of course, this could all change as nothing is set in stone just yet, so we'll keep our ear to the ground and will update this section as soon as we hear any new release date details.

Those looking to pick up an Xbox One can grab the console right now at a great price thanks to deals and bundles online retailers often run. Back then, the new console was expected to have a mid-May launch.

In addition, the site claims to have seen official images of the machine, including a box shot, and has recreated them in Photoshop to protect its sources.
