Microsoft’s Chief of Surface, Panos Panay, introduced the new 85-inch model at Microsoft’s Surface Event in New York this week, and briefly showed it between two of the Surface 2S 50-inch panels. 

The panel is likely to include features of the 2S, including a removable cartridge that will be upgraded next year. This will allow businesses to upgrade their computers with a new CPU, RAM, and GPU, and won’t have to replace the expensive display panel.

Pricing and regional availability has not yet been announced, but the company says it’ll be available in 2020.

In efforts to make gamers ditch the discs, Microsoft’s Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is being sold with the premise of building a library of digital games in the cloud. This way, players can take their cloud saves on the go, and enjoy the ability to preorder and pre-install upcoming games so they’re ready to play the moment they launch. The console comes with three games preinstalled: Minecraft, Sea of Thieves, and Forza Horizon 3.

The Xbox Game Pass subscription allows for a Netflix-style of gaming, where one can play games from a large library of games for as long as one has an active subscription. This seems to be a response to Google Stadia’s gaming platform.

Apart from the disc drive, it comes with all the features of the original Xbox One S, including 4K gaming, HDR support, Dolby Atmos spatial audio output, and a 1TB hard drive.

The console will launch on 7 May and is available for preorder now on Microsoft’s website. The recommended retail price is $250 in the US, while local pricing and available has yet to be announced.
