    Not Great but not all bad

    I have 3 XB1s (2 X and 1 S). I bought the XB1S for $199. I have rarely seen the S at full retail $299. You can almost always find it for $250 or lower. I'm a big fan of the XB1 but I tend to agree with most of the other sentiments in the reviews. If this was a sub 100-150 console I would say go for it ONLY for people on a strict budget but at this price I just simple would never recommend this for a number of reasons. 1) As I mentioned, you can almost always find a XB1S for 250 or lower. 2) I realize everything is moving digital BUT I still buy 4K discs because many of the digital retailers don't translate between one another. So you buy a 4K copy from Vudu and it is only HD on Fandango or some other service and vice versa. The physical disc plays in 4K no matter what so the disc player is important. 3) You cannot sell digital games. Until you can sell your digital games I will NEVER fully embrace a digital only world. I don't like how I am just buying the rights to use it and someone else gets to tell me how and when to use it. You don't have this problem with discs. You own the disc and you can sell it because of fair use laws. Digital games aren't subject to fair use like physical discs. 4) MOST IMPORTANT - Microsoft USED to have a policy where ALL digital games family shared (games and DLC). You could buy a single copy of a game and share it with your family. While this is still the case, it is NOT enforced and more and more game companies are coming up with ways to prevent it. This is the single reason I switched from PC gaming to XB. If this were a requirement of the platform, I would feel better but since it isn't and it is getting more and more restrictive, I could never recommend a digital only platform that doesn't have some clear rules on adherence to this platform feature.

    Missed Opportunity

    As a LONG time Xbox fan and consumer, (I have an Original XBox, 360 and One) I feel XBox dropped the ball on this one. The XBox One S had a great selling point of having the 4K drive. If you buy one on the side you are paying well above the $50 difference between the systems. You also can not buy used games or borrow games from friends, etc. (Ok, your paying less and you know your not getting these feature, moving on) These missing features could have been justified if you put something else in there place. If you are going to go diskless, XBox really NEEDED to give this new console a larger internal drive. I have a 4 TB external drive plugged into my XBox One as games today take up A LOT of space. I have 3 games on my XBox that take up more than 100 GBs each. It would have been a better option to say, both systems retail at $300 but the diskless drive has a 3 or a 4 TB drive so you can really store all of your games on the device. With a 1 TB drive you are uninstalling and reinstalling all the time if you have even a remotely decent library of games. There is ample space in the system shell to add a second drive or have a larger drive. Heck, really give people incentive to go digital by give it a solid state drive for the games you are actively playing with a larger "storage" traditional drive. The Xbox One overall is a FANTASTIC system, however, in its current state, pay the extra $50 and get a disk based Xbox One S and skip the diskless version.

    I was very hesitant at first to purchase this all digital system. I’ve had my Xbox 360 for years and finally wore it out. As a older gamer, I wasn’t sure of purchasing this over PS4 or the Switch. Also, I didn’t want to drop $1k upon a gaming PC. Upon research on this Xbox One S All Digital system, you can transfer purchased xbox360 digital games via personal account. The majority of all my xbox 360 games were digital downloads. This was the winning point for me along with the reduced price at $249.99 when compared to the current generation of other gaming consoles. In the box: You get 1TB Xbox One S All Digital system, 1 controller, 1 month free of GOLD subscription, and codes for 3 digital Xbox One games - Forza 3, Sea Of Thieves, & Minecraft. This is well worth the price tag in my opinion. Out of all my digital Xbox 360 games, I was able to download 15 out 20 games to my new Xbox One S All Digital. It may have to do with licensing on certain titles. Not bad in my opinion. I still have plenty of room left on the 1TB HDD after downloading 20 Xbox 360 games & the 3 included games that came bundled with the system. Overall I don’t understand what the fuss is about not having a disc drive. It has been years since I’ve bought a physical copy of a game. I guarantee that the next generation of systems will have NO disc drive. If you’re trying to save some cash and want a NEW current generation game console for under $300. , the Xbox One S All Digital is the way to go. I’m happy with my purchase and I recommend the Xbox One S All Digital to anyone. Change is good! Pros: Lowest in price/cost when compared to other current generation console systems. Backwards compatible: Transfer digital Xbox 360 games. New concept: All Digital game console from one of the best gaming companies to date. 3 games & 1 month free Gold subscription included in price. Cons: Need a high speed ISP. Downloads take a considerable amount of time. Patience is needed during long downloads. A 2nd controller should of been provided A budget headset should of been provided.

    Terrible value anywhere near sticker price

    The one thing XBox had going for it over a Playstation was the 4k disc player on the One S and X. This system simply removes that disc player. Which means no 4k Blu Rays, no preordering physical copies of games (which often have exclusive content and come with discounts or gift cards), no buying physical copies of games on sale (which is almost always cheaper than digital), no sharing or borrowing games,and no buying or selling used games. They didn't even make the hard drive any bigger as a consolation for taking away the disc drive. Microsoft's response to all the negative reviews says that it is the way of the future and this system gives gamers a choice and value, which is a lie. The regular XBox One S allows gamers to choose between physical copies or downloads. It's also almost always on sale for $250 or less, and has been as low as $200 with free games included. The system with a disc is a much better value and offers more ways to play games and media. That's where the value and choice lie in the XBox lineup. Maybe when these start going on sale for $150 or less it will be a decent value for those who don't care about the disc player, but until then, it isn't worth it.

    Not worth the loss of the blu-ray player

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I paid less money than this for my Xbox One S a couple years ago. This is a gimped version for only $50 off the MSRP and I definitely would never pay full price for this. For me the biggest selling feature of the Xbox One S is that it doubles as a Blu-ray player (and it is a good one) so I don't need multiple boxes by my TV. Blu-ray quality is still WAY better than streaming quality and most people still have physical copies of stuff. Not to mention that sometimes getting a physical copy of a game or movie can be cheaper than digital (like if you buy one used). If they are going to remove the disc player then they should at least make it easier for people to remove and replace the hard drive themselves. If I could easily put one of my 8TB Red HDDs in there and load it up with my Blu-ray quality media it might be a different story but even then it would still be too expensive for what it is IMO. And no - I do not want to have to plug in an unsightly external drive.

    Niche product

    I believe that this SKU is greatly overpriced. For $250.00 they could have at least upped the storage to 2TB. I purchased my unit on sale for $199.99 which seems acceptable (Holiday pricing should be $149.99). First off I'll start by saying the UI is flat out abysmal. I can forgive the arrangement, but performance wise it's clunky from the start. This is going to be a gift for a 5 year old (Roblox mainly), so I tested everything out beforehand. I was less than amused with the download and install speeds. The codes all worked without issue. I made sure to weigh the pros and cons of backwards compatibility in which only a handful of my library made the list (Still have 360s for that). I won't harp on the choice of games since I knew what to expect going in. The fan seemed to stay in high gear. We don't plan on streaming games, but I may see what Game Pass is all about. I have a Gigabit ISP, and the download speeds really put me off (they were actually better over Wifi). Overall, I would say that this isn't as bad as people make it out to be so long as you know exactly what you're getting. If you need a 4K player included, get the regular One S (although the performance of this has me considering a One X). I think that this unit shines when it comes to a household with multiple Xboxes for game sharing (if online multiplayer allows the use of the same title at the same time). Xbox Live will make or break this unit. If licenses lapse, and games are pulled that would equate to a bad investment. The same applies if Xbox Live ceases to exist.

    Great console for digital in mind gamers and kids

    Dispite the reviews and negativity, Microsoft has seen a large up-tick in digital only gamers, Their XBOX Live Gold games each month and Game Pass keeps alot of us entertained for hours. Now yes, the loss of a phyiscal disc drive or blue-ray drive for alot is a bummer. Could they of boosted the HDD space, add a second HDD where the physical drive was? Sure, but that might be an option down the road. I see this as a secondary system for the Xbox Gamer who already has the console w/ a drive and has been leaning more digital, maybe the "physical drive" xbox is on a TV for the "entertainment" console, and this one is in a bedroom or somewhere else for gaming. ie, keep in mind this is the gamer who is leaning more towards all digital but still keeps a console with a drive as he/she still has physical media. OR this is the perfect thing for Kids!! Getting away from kids touching the physical discs is a godsend for most families and gamers like myself. I cant stand the kids touching my discs. This would force me to go all digital, pay a little higher for faster internet and just download the games we constantly play on the HDD, keep the rest readily available to download. Ive seen reviews how this also appeals to the OCD or folks who are limited on space and cant hold all the games, boxes, etc with physical media. Long story short, no matter how you game, you can easily justify this. 3 Games (also included in GamePass) make up for the difference in cost. I can see this as a $150 Black Friday deal!

    I have all of the Microsoft systems - OG Xbox (one of my favorite systems), X360(less favorite), XB1 , XB1X Project Scorpio, so I have invested some significant amount into MS products. I never been disappointed in their systems. I also have a pretty powerful PC for gaming as well and I gotta say that XB1X is really up there especially when they optimize their games like what they did with Forza 4. Ok, lyrics aside, I don't get the point of this product at this price point especially. MS was all about backwards compatibility, which is a great feature, but how are you gonna use it without the drive? How about pre-owned games? How about selling games that you played and enjoyed in case you don't want them anymore? Not with digital. If I want to buy digital I go to my PC. Consoles always been about collecting and trading physical media, that's the whole point. They included 3 games (one requires Gold to play), but even that does not bring it to $250 value. Sorry MS, I have been buying your products for years now, but this one is just beyond me.

    Great console, 100% worth it

    • My Best Buy® Member

    even though, as I can admit, it is too bad that this console can't run disks, it doesn't change the console in any way. any physical copy of a game that you could buy would be the same price as one you'd find online, and if you managed to find one at a discount, it'd probably be used, and in poor condition. Microsoft also frequently runs sales on its games, and I you were to find a game online that happened to be really expensive, then just subtract twenty dollars from the actual price of the game, and you have the price it actually stays at. also, by buying the all online edition, your games are saved in the cloud, and can be carried over to the xbox 2 when it comes out and so on. as far as the overall performance of the console goes, I think it Is honestly better then the standard edition, because the games are saved to the cloud instead of being read from a disk. by buying the all online edition, you're also getting a value of 545 dollars (three months of game pass, one month of game pass ultimate, one month of xbox live gold, Minecraft, sea of thieves, Forza horizon 3, the console itself) for 250 dollars. so, by buying the all online edition, you're saving 295 dollars. the all online edition is a great purchase, and is 100% worth it.

    The PS4 has enjoyed a lead in gaming since its release. The one saving grace of the XBOX One S and XBOX One X is that they had a 4K Bluray player instead of the standard bluray player on the PS4. This may not seem very important, but for me it was just enough to push me to buy an Xbox One S. Fast forward to this, and this is a huge missed opportunity. It would have been easy to make this a must buy. All they had to do is to use that unused extra space to include a 1TB solid state drive, and a 5TB spinning drive. Why would I go digital only? Make me do it. This is terrible. They didn't even make it physically smaller... it's confusing, it doesn't add anything, it should have never made it out to the store shelf. The only natural reaction I can think of, is to buy a PS4.

    Waste of a purchase

    This console only saves you 50 dollars. You lose the ability to use a blue ray disc player which is worth much more than 50 dollars. You lose the ability to play any used or cheap games that you might get down the road or simply all the games you’ve bought throughout the years. Let’s be realistic here, you don’t need to specifically buy a digital only console. Buy a normal one and all you have to do is not buy discs... trust me the 50 extra dollars is worth having a blue ray and disc player. I’ve always been 100% digital but just having the blue ray for movies and having the disc tray Incase a friend gives me a game is worth more than losing it forever. The console should be 199 to make up for the blue ray loss, no point in anyone getting this honestly.

    There is no way around it - The "All Digital Edition" of the XBOX ONE S is a terrible value. Losing significant features such as blu-ray playback and buying games on disc should reflect more than a "$50 MSRP" savings. Which in reality the BETTER XBOX ONE S is often sold at $250 or less across various outlets. Sorry, the games included are not going to cut it either. Chuck, you guys are not going to convince smart consumers on this one. Just keep shuffling the reviews out in Redmond and the entire team should reconsider an adjustment to this inflated price point on such a limited console compared to the rest of the xbox one family, which btw ALL which can be "All Digital" as well if the user decides to go that route. THAT IS CHOICE, not this abomination of a console for $250.

    This is a brilliant move by Microsoft. I'm an IT Developer and know that organizations are very busy switching their applications over to using the Cloud Foundry (PCF- Pivotal Cloud Foundry) as a new architecture. Since obviously the resources are far more scalable easily so the likelihood of a resources shortage or a services outage issues are old things of the past from prior server based architectures. As an old WAS7 based Java Appl developer now converting over to the new tech. This is a good thing. Besides I'm more than sure if you really need to use a disc for the sake of backwards compatibility, just go out and buy one and attach it since the age-old Plug-and-Play will come in handy to take care of that need. What is there to dislike here? Everything has to have a first evolutionary step then crawl then walk then run then Sprints as we well know. I'm happy and applaud Microsoft for taking this first step and is eager to see where they go next with this!!!

    There’s a lot of negative reviews, going on a whim few of these reviews are from actually owners of the console. I had an Xbox One S, and I absolutely hate physical games I buy my games online for the cheaper price in some cases. You can buy a brand new $70 physical games and absolutely hate it and not be able to get your money back. Same on all digital, but usually after a games been out for awhile you get a Xbox Gold discount I don’t know about you, but I’d rather get a 5-10% discount on a game after it’s out then spent $70 and getting only a resell price of $50 which you could have gotten online to begin with. Not to mention game sharing, which is AWESOME when you buy digital games or your friend does and you both get to play it. To me, it just makes sense for people like me to invest in it. You don’t like, you can always buy one with a disk reader it’s honestly not that serious for it to be getting such awful reviews.

      Thank you for sharing that you're enjoying going disc-less with your new Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. It's true, subscribers to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass receive discounts on digital games bought through the Microsoft Store and some Xbox digital games are Xbox Play Anywhere titles, which allow you to play them on both Xbox One and PC.

    Please if you are a parent or grandparent don't buy this for your loved one. This a gutted system that will force you to have high speed Internet and have a significant loss in media capabilities. This is an experiment from Microsoft for their next system. There is absolutely no reason to have a gaming console without a built in blu ray player. I'm very disappointed in Microsoft and I'm a very big Microsoft xbox one x fan. Don't reward them for trying to get you to buy a watered down piece of equipment lacking functionality and trying to convince you you're better for it.

    I am a software developer who decided to try writing a video game. I was ready to try my game running on an Xbox, but I didn't want to mess up my Xbox One X. I didn't need a disk for testing a game, so I thought I would save a few dollars and buy the all digital version. I went to my local Best Buy, bought one of these and started setting it up. That is when I realized that this was much better than my Apple TV 4K for video streaming, playing games, and more. The Apple TV is now disconnected, I went back to Best Buy to buy another digital only Xbox, and not only do I have a console to test my game with but I also have a better streaming device. A lot of the other reviews are bashing this for not having a disk, but if you don't need one, why pay for it?

    I don't understand how this console gives user the "convenience" or choice for their game console. If anything, this console gives you less options. This is an Xbox that has one less option -- no discs can be used. The original Xbox One S can already do everything this console can do. It can play all the digital games, and it can play any game that you have on disc. Also, the Xbox One S is offered at a lower price usually than the digital Xbox. Say someone brings a game over... "Oh sorry, we can't play that game because I don't have the Xbox with a disc drive." Talk about convienience...

      Thank you for your input into Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. Just to clarify, Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is being offered at a suggested retail price that is $50 lower than the standard Xbox One S. Microsoft sets an estimated retail price, but specific pricing and offers vary by retailer. It also comes with three popular Xbox One games, Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3, and Sea of Thieves.

      We understand that not everyone uses or wants to use physical media for gaming or video content, which is how Xbox One S All-Digital Edition offers gamers more value and choice in their gaming decisions.

    Bought it. Loved it. Returned it. I love the concept of an all digital console. No physical disks to store or switch out. But why are all the game downloads FULL price when I can get a new copy of the disk for almost half the price? WWE 2K19...$59.99 to download or $29.99 new to buy the disk. Tony Hawk PS 5, which came out in 2015 is still $59.99 to download or $14.99 to buy pre-owned. The $50 savings you get by purchasing the all-digital console suddenly doesn’t look that great of a deal if I have to pay extra for every game. Traded this in for the regular One S.

    Microsoft, now your milking the systems blatantly!! How do you remove the blue ray player and not add an SSD for the OS? How do you only ship this with 1TB option and not 5TB? Since you do ship with 1TB, why can’t you allow users to replace it with there own 5TB drive like Sony has figured out? Wow, you are terrible at this console! How do you ship this console with 1TB that will hold maybe 5-10 games; still take forever to download, install, and reload games? This console deserves negative stars!

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I don't hate it. The concept can be fixed.

    This console can be a good option for certain use scenarios. If you're a COD type gamer that never plans to play your games again, it works. Kids that can put change in the disk opening? This doesn't have that problem. Think before you condemn an idea. That said, I would really like to see an external disk reader optional accessory for those that receive this as a gift, or later decide that a drive is necessary after purchasing this. This could very well be an "experiment" by MS, but it's not a reason to immediately hate it. For those who think it should be more than $50 cheaper, look up what Blu-ray readers sell for. It's an appropriate price drop.

      Hey there,

      Thank you for your feedback on Xbox One S All-Digital Edition and understanding how it offers more value to certain players and audiences. The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is built for disc-free gaming and entertainment, so it does not include an optical drive and cannot play disc-based media. If you feel that you may want to play physical discs or Blu-rays on your Xbox One, we strongly recommend investing in a standard Xbox One S or Xbox One X instead.

      Happy gaming,
