It’s still an Xbox.

Reports have been making the rounds for weeks now about a new Microsoft console that takes the familiar Xbox One console but removes the disc drive, making it a fully-digital console.

Today, during the company’s Inside Xbox event we now know what to expect from the new console, including pricing and release date.

When does the Xbox One S All Digital release?

The All Digital Edition Xbox One S will be available on May 7. You can preorder the device later today from the Microsoft Store, Walmart, Best Buy, and Amazon. (We’ll update this with links once available)

How much will the console cost?

The disc-less console will set you back a cool $249.99. I was expecting a slightly lower price point, but Microsoft states that the All Digital Edition will maintain a $50 difference from its disc-equipped sibling. That includes sales and other deals.

What comes with the console?

With the Xbox One S All Digital, users will get a 1TB hard drive, plus three games: Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3. I’m assuming they didn’t include the newest Horizon as a way to get people to check out the Xbox Game Pass, but who knows. Speaking of the Game Pass, users that buy the disc-less Xbox One will get a special offer of three months of Game Pass for $1.
