It'll include a 1TB hard drive and game codes for Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3. With this being the case, players who opt into Xbox Games Pass Ultimate subscription will save $5 between both of the services, which should help make the new service more enticing.
As predicted on Monday, the Xbox One S All Digital console from Microsoft was launched yesterday evening. The big difference is that it's digital-only, which is a tactical move on Microsoft's part to pull gamers into its lucrative billion-dollar ecosystem of services, subscriptions, game sales, and advertisement revenues.
It's also available to test out now by Xbox Insiders.
"The benefits of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is that it offers value and choice to customers that prefer the conveniences of an all-digital library", Gattis said.

A previous tweet regarding a strategy to take the company private contributed to the initial round of issues with the SEC. Attorneys argued for almost two hours before Nathan urged a settlement with Musk celebrating from a defense table.
Other Xbox One S variants only come with a single game (if any), but the pricing on the All-Digital Edition is still a bit suspect. Game Pass Ultimate will combine the existing Game Pass with Xbox Live Gold.
If you're excited to pick it up on Day 1, save yourself some time and pre-order the new console today. If you're already subscribed to Game Pass and Live Gold, you can merge the two into a new subscription.
If you're the sort of Xbox user that jumps on every console exclusive released in the space of a year, this is the subscription for you. We'll let you know as soon as we get more details about the early access period. Microsoft confirms that its Xbox One S All Digital supports 4K video streaming, HDR content and spatial audio using Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio tech. This means any physical Xbox games or DVDs/Blu-Rays you have will not work with this console, as there is literally nowhere for them to go. The public launch is planned for 2019 "in current Xbox Game Pass markets".
