Microsoft Releasing an All-Digital Xbox One S Bundle in May

By: Lewis WardResearch Director, Gaming and VR/AR

Abstract

This IDC Market Note describes and assesses the impact that Microsoft's Xbox One S All-Digital Edition bundle, which was announced on April 16 that it will launch worldwide on May 7, will have on TV-based gaming in 2019 and 2020.

"Our research doesn't imply the All-Digital Xbox One bundle will sell particularly well, but it should provide Microsoft with an interesting test bed for digital-only game distribution models that can help inform their next-generation console thinking and aspirations — although our U.S. survey data does show that an increasing share of console gamers are buying AAA titles digitally." — Lewis Ward, director of Gaming and VR/AR
