There had been rumours of late speculating the existence of a disc-less Xbox One S that has no Blue-ray drive.
Today, Microsoft has confirmed of its existence by introducing the console which is aptly named the Xbox One S All Digital and will be priced at €229 (about RM1,065). But considering that Value Added Tax affects sale prices in Europe, Malaysia could technically get the console at a lower price than mentioned.
