The new Xbox One Model name revealed
- Pre-orders to begin supposedly in April 2019
Earlier in 2018, Microsoft had announced that they are working on a new edition of the Xbox One titled "Xbox Maverick". The Xbox One S had the codename "Scorpio" before it was released and it was unveiled to support 4K HDR resolutions for games.
According to a report from Windows Central, the new Xbox will be titled Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. Supposedly, the pre-orders for this new edition of the Xbox will be starting sometime in April 2019. There is no release date though. These are all subject to change of course since there has been no official announcement from Microsoft yet.
There have been rumours spreading about a disc-less Xbox One and this version of the Xbox might just be it (at least that's what the name also suggests). Printing of physical game media can be costly but it is useful for people who have limited bandwidth on their internet plans or internet which have low speeds. However, digital games make access as well as refunds much easier.
It might be a little early for this console to enter the market, so we don't know how exactly it could perform. Digital games are great and they save you a lot of physical space from keeping discs, but they do end up taking space on your Xbox's hard drive. The upside is that the console could be cheaper since the components for the disc wouldn't be included so Microsoft won't have to account the price for adding that part.
Microsoft has been pushing great services such as the Xbox Game Pass and the new streaming service Project xCloud, which aims to make players stream/play Xbox games on the mobile. We're assuming the 4k features will be back, so let's see what Microsoft has to officially say about the upcoming console.
