      Hey there,

      Thank you for the feedback. Just to clear up any confusion, the standard Xbox One S estimated retail price is $299.99 USD, while the standard retail price for the All-Digital Edition is $249.99.

      The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is the newest member of the Xbox One family of devices and provides the best value to gamers who prefer digital experiences by packing in three games from some of the most popular franchises – Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3 – so you can start gaming right out of the box. Microsoft sets an estimated retail price, but specific pricing and offers vary by retailer.

      Hope that helps,

    A massive misstep by Microsoft

    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.

    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.

    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'm 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.
