    A disc-less Xbox One console makes complete sense in an increasingly digital world, but there's something philosophically odd about the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition.
    We revealed the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition a few weeks ahead of its announcement back in April 2019, showcasing Microsoft's efforts to improve the affordability of entering its ecosystem.
    Theoretically, this new console is $50 cheaper than its Xbox One S disc-bound counterpart. We say "theoretically" because, well, there are a lot of deals out there that nullify the savings. Microsoft would point to the bundled Forza Horizon 3, Sea of Thieves, Minecraft titles as an additional saving, but considering these games are available on Xbox Game Pass, which is also cheaper, this makes little sense.
    Therein lies the main problem with the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. It's a sound idea on paper, in a world that is increasingly moving to the cloud. In execution, the S family of Xbox consoles feels cluttered with a new console that feels more like an experiment.
