The world is going fully digital nowadays, even in the world of gaming. There was a point when physical discs were heavily-relied upon to deliver video games to the people.

With internet speeds now reaching ridiculous speeds, platforms such as Steam as well as console digital stores have become the go-to option for gamers to purchase titles. Physical discs only seem to be a viable option for those who have limited storage space and low internet speeds.

Microsoft understands the digitalization of video games along with the purchasing process, and it shows as they’re reportedly releasing a digital-only version of the existing Xbox One S.

Reports claim that the machine could be cheaper than the regular Xbox One S and Xbox One X because of its lack of a Blu-ray drive. The current Xbox One S is sold in bundles and cost around RM1,100, so a cheaper gaming console that could potentially cost less than RM1,000 is indeed enticing.

It is also reported that the device could arrive as soon as May this year and a special Fortnite Edition of the console will be available.
