    Happy to leap into the future of gaming

    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.

    The way of the future

    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.

      Hey Sammy,

      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. We hope you have a lot of fun with your new Xbox console.

      Happy gaming,

    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?

    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.

    Good alternative depending on price

    If you find this cheaper than the Xbox One S and don't need the ultra hd blu-ray drive/disc games then buy it. You can purchase all the games digitally like you do on a smart phone or sign up for Gamepass which gives you over 100 games. Most other reviews here are just giving this a low mark because they don't like the idea of a digital only system but they aren't reviewing the console itself.

    None of the negative reviews are worth a read at all. It's a bunch of fan boys complaining cause Microsoft went all digital. The console works like it's supposed to and technically should be under $200 but other then that it works as advertised. Don't listen to the negative nancys on here cause they have NO clue.

    If you're like me and have made the switch to all digital or are thinking about it - this system is definitely a great benefit. the 1TB drive as well as 3 great titles included make it an awesome xbox one option.
