Playing video games has become one of the most fun things you can do today, as long as you have two things: free time and money. As for the first, it depends on many factors, but the second is also in the hands of the companies. Microsoft wants to reach a wider audience with the launch of the Xbox One S All Digital Edition , a cheaper edition of its console with a few quirks. Features of Xbox One S All Digital Edition
We review its features and differences with other editions of the console before evaluating whether it is worth your purchase. Digitally oriented
The main feature of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is that it does not play discsin physical format. By not having a disc reader, the price of the machine is significantly reduced. Then we review if the quality-price ratio is optimal.
If it doesn’t play discs, how can I play my favorite games like Gears or Halo
? Very easy. This console is designed to download and play games in digital format, buying games in the Xbox store or with an Xbox Game Pass subscription. Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass
All-Digital Edition has a free month of Xbox Live Gold to enjoy multiplayer. We remind you that with this monthly Gold subscription you have access to four free Xbox 360 games and offers of up to 75% in the Microsoft Store. After the trial period, the Xbox Live Gold pass can be purchased for 6.99 euros per month or 39 euros per year.
However, the most interesting offer from All-Digital is that it offers three months of Game Pass for 1 euro . Game Pass is the Xbox service with which we can enjoy a catalog of more than 100 games (some as interesting as Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Monster Hunter: World or Prey) in exchange for a monthly subscription.
After three months, the Game Pass subscription will renew automatically. The price of the subscription is 9.99 euros per month or 29.97 euros per quarter.
Design of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. | Xbox. Cloud storage
Following the philosophy of “everything digital”, the games, game data and backup copies will be stored in the cloud, with which you will be able to have your catalog and games on any Xbox One console. As it is a Xbox One S, also has a 1 TB or 500 GB hard drive, depending on the model to choose. As noted on the official website, there is also the option to pre-install new games. Same features as Xbox One S
Apart from the absence of a disc drive, All-Digital Edition has the same features as an Xbox One S console, that is, an 8-core processor at 1.75 GHz, an AMD graphics at 914Mhz and 12 processing units and 8GB of RAM.
With these specifications, we can enjoy the latest games at 4K and HDR . We remember that the difference between an Xbox One S and an Xbox One X is that the latter is the most powerful console on the market, running games at native 4K so they look spectacular. If your priority is graphics, you may be more worth spending a little more money on the Xbox One X.
The design of the console is identical to the Xbox One S, although without the front disc drive. Xbox One S All-Digital Edition price: is it worth it?
That said, the final starting price of Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is 229.99 euros (VAT included). The package comes with the free download of Minecraft, Sea of ‚Äč‚ÄčThieves and Forza Horizon 3, three games that, despite not being the latest releases, can give us a few hours of fun. Is this price attractive to the consumer
? We think not.

The discount is insubstantial if we take into account the offers in the Xbox store. Currently, an Xbox One S bundle with The Division 2 is available for an additional $20, as well as various bundles with other releases like Anthem or Forza Horizon 4 for the same All-Digital price.
If we take into account the Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass promotions, All-Digital is profitable in the short term, but if you plan to play your Xbox for a few years (at least, before the next generation of Xbox), buying All-Digital doesn’t make any sense. We do not know if Microsoft will lower its price in the coming months, although we suspect that everything will depend on its sales volume.
