We reported last month that Microsoft’s highly innovative disc-less Xbox One S is going to arrive sooner than expected and from the looks of it, we were right. A new promotional picture of the next-gen console has been leaked today and not just that, but the console’s launch date and official pricing in Europe have been leaked as well. Before we present the new leaks, we need to note that the leak comes from the leakster known as “Wario64” which has a reputable track record of predicting upcoming devices.
All-Digital Xbox One S
The leaked pictures show us that the new all-digital Xbox One S will ship with Minecraft, Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 3 pre-installed. Not just that, but the leaked pictures also reveal that Microsoft has equipped the disc-less console with 1TB of internal storage space which is great news for Xbox fans. In addition, the new console is not going to look that different from the classic Xbox One S other than the lack of the DVD-reader.
Launch Date and Price in Europe
The folks at WinFuture are reporting that Microsoft is going to launch the new console on May 7th in Europe. This means that the disc-less Xbox One S is going to arrive sooner than expected since some reports were pointing at a summer release.
When it comes to the price, the new console is not going to be cheap. According to the new leak, the console is going to be priced at 229.99 pounds in Europe which converts to around $300.
Inside Xbox Event
We have to mention that Microsoft is scheduled to host a big “Inside Xbox” event tomorrow (April 16th). Therefore, we can be sure that Microsoft is going to confirm the pricing and official launch date of the disc-less console during the event.
