    Those mockups will be way out. The bluray drive in the current S is huge, add to that they can move the chip onto a smaller/cooler process, use a smaller PSU etc, it'll be half the size of that.

    "All Digital".

    What a stupid name. You mean it wasn't digital before? And I hate to be that prick but if it has an analogue audio out on the back, it's not all digital now is it?

    Now that's out of the way, the price is stupid, too. It needs to be roughly the value of a half decent blu ray player cheaper to convince customers. But what they're obviously doing is reducing the value of the product with a view to removing availability of the optical drive version whilst keeping the price near enough the same.

    Because Microsoft have forgotten what happened last time they annoyed their customers.

    Maybe, but keep in mind the MSRP of the Xbox One S is £299, so it's currently discounted by around 40% - I think pricing the disc-less version at 1/3 off the standard one is actually about right in the end. I fully expect to see slow intiial sales if retailers sell at the MSRP, and then steep discounts wtihin a few months where we'll start to see them coming in at around £130-£150, which is abit of a bargain imo. Selling for £99 or less just isn't realistic, so there is only so low they can go.

    Not that i am interested in swapping out my current S as it is

    Re: Xbox One S All Digital launches tomorrow, says report

    Having just bought an open box one s 1tb from amazon for £133 I can see the appeal - game pass with its various offers (I got 9 months for £25 by stacking offers) mean a whole lot of gaming on the cheap. Gaming looks like it is increasingly going down the netflix route at the moment (either streaming or download like game pass). I was original against the idea but have slowly come to the realisation I rarely if ever play old games again and also rarely complete them so something like game pass will probably save me money... It does feel a little high priced though.

    I don't really see the point, you can have disc free gaming on normal versions of the Xbox One but at least you have the option if you do see a good deal on a disc or just want to use an old dvd/blu ray.

    Wait, but this is not the top-range xbox-x variation is it? It is the older xbox one-s that is now just smaller right?

    It was always going to happen though, it was only the Internet infrastructure that held it back. I do wonder however, how this will impact sales in third world countries, maybe MS doesn't care as all the profit is in Europe, North America and Australia for them.

    Dead on arrival at that price point.

    if it had cost around 170 euros then choosing it over a disc model would have made sense.

    it would also have been a competitor to TV streaming boxes like Shield, FireTV etc with more value on the console even though Xbox One S is a jack of all trades master of none.

    In terms of Internet access large parts of North America are a 3rd world country.

    Some people actually still want to play their games when the sub ends, not everyone wants to pay monthly for something just for it to stop working when they stop paying.
