Microsoft unveils all-digital Xbox consoles, Doom title at Games Showcase

Microsoft kicked off its annual Xbox Games Showcase on Sunday (June 9), unveiling a new all-digital version of its Xbox Series X and S consoles as well as trailers for more than a dozen games including the next instalment of Call of Duty.

The Games Showcase comes at a crucial time for Xbox and Microsoft as the gaming industry faces a downturn and publishers grapple with softer sales, layoffs and studio shutdowns.

Microsoft showed off three gaming consoles including a disc-less version of the Xbox Series X and S consoles, and a special edition of the Series X with 2 terabytes of storage.

The hardware refresh could help Xbox boost sales of its consoles which compete with Sony’s PlayStation 5.

Among the games on display was Doom: The Dark Ages, the latest instalment in the long-running “Doom” franchise, as well as a sneak peak at the newest Gears of War title, ending a five-year wait for one of Xbox’s most popular properties.
