The future is here in the form of the Xbox One S All Digital Edition, Microsoft’s latest Xbox One console. It’s exactly the same as the Xbox One S, but with one key difference – it doesn’t have a disc drive, making it a truly digital console. That’s not all you need to know about it though, here’s 5 key things about Microsoft’s extraordinary new Xbox.

1. It’s completely digital

This Xbox One S comes without a disc drive, which means it’s 100% digital. Instead of buying games on discs, you can build out your collection with a digital library. This means saving your games and progress in the cloud, where they’ll be ready to download to any Xbox One console.

2. It comes with 3 digital games to get your collection started

When you buy the Xbox One S All Digital Edition, you’ll get 3 game codes to kickstart your new digital collection. These include Minecraft, which is one of the biggest games in the world, the buccaneering brilliance of Sea of Thieves, and the wild, open-world racing of Forza Horizon 3. With such a diverse range of games to choose from, your first steps into an all-digital console life are guaranteed to be great.

3. You can pre-install new games so they’re ready for release

One of the benefits of going all-digital is that you can pre-install games onto your console, so they’re ready to play as soon as you reach release day. We love the idea of rolling out of bed and having the latest blockbuster waiting for us on our console!

4. It boasts backwards compatibility support

Like every Xbox One console, the Xbox One S All Digital Edition supports backwards compatibility. If you ever bought a backwards compatible title on the Xbox 360 or original Xbox digital store, you can re-download it and play it on this new digital console. Check out the huge range of classics from yesteryear you can play on the Xbox One S All Digital Edition here.

5. You can stream your favourite shows in 4K

Want to watch your shows in the best picture quality imaginable? The console also supports 4K media streaming, so you’ll be able to enjoy incredible shows like Stranger Things, Black Mirror, and The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix in crisp Ultra HD. We wouldn’t recommend watching Hill House in 4K late at night though, unless you like the most vivid nightmares possible…
