Microsoft Attending Gamescom 2013: Focus on "Next Xbox"

Microsoft announced that it will be appearing at this year's Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. The focus is on the "next Xbox". (Gamescom 2013, Microsoft, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Why o why  +   1009d ago
nice, they must have games to show off. Lets hope the core/casual game ratio is heavier on the core end.

85% of life is showing up. The remaining 15 is used to dispel/explain "always on" and why subs to play & view online content are necessary.

I bet you say that every night before bed. Can't wait for the rumors to stop or at least slow down.

Great move for Microsoft. They need to have a big presence at Gamescom this go-around more than they have in a very longtime.

Will be interesting to see them go to Tokyo this year as well.

@Why I sure hope so. Next week Lucid games could announce PGR5 ahead of the New Xbox reveal, can't wait.

MS seems to setting its sites on these events. They missed GDC and now they're making up for it which is great.

BTW @Why do you think MS could be at TGS? Seeing how the Japanese Market has never supported MS.

Do you think they'll have games that'll cater to them?

I think they should. They've built from their first gen to this gen so why not go in again.. Slow motion is better than no motion. No region should be ignored imo

When is Gamescon? My phone's browser is retarded...

Hasn't MS been going to Gamescon?

They skipped last year.

The diddnt go last year, probably because the Xbox 360 got banned in Germany.
DiRtY  +   1009d ago

The Xbox 360 is not banned here. Google tried to achieve this due to patent issues, but they failed to ban the console and settled an agreement with much lower fees Google / Motorola was hoping for.

They have been there but no conference for the last 3 years. They had play days as they called them.

Sony, EA and Ubi were the only conferences as gamescom.

Time for a sarcastic troll comment!!

Why would Europe need American cable channels??

Now a real comment...

Hopefully this means they have games to show or rumors to dispell. All the speculation is getting way out of hand.

MS ain't playing around this time. I expect them to go on full frontal assault on the launch of the Next Box. Both Rare and Lionhead studio are based in Europe and so are the developers of Ryse and Alan Wake so I expect them to show off some games from these developers and other surprises.

Your 7 disagrees are from the 7 people who still think buying Kinnect was worth it.

So, do you have a problem with that? Is it wrong for someone to enjoy something you don't? Does everyone have to conform to your views? Are you the image of humanity? Are you in charge of how people like spending THEIR money?
