The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition would be the first consumer console 100% focused on digital content. The console owners would no longer be able to launch games in disc format and should be content with their collection of digital titles and the GamePass offer.

In addition to gaming, the console would also allow streaming video playback and the use of multiple applications.
