If they show new games at Gamescon in addition to the ones already shown, i will be highly impressed. Also would like to see some new Killer Instinct characters.

Seems likely, Spencer was blustering on Twitter about Gamescom being a good event for Xbox One, and more recently about more exclusives to announce.

Lots of speculation about Lionhead and separately a new Crackdown :)
jimbobwahey  +   534d ago
Hopefully they'll announce a price drop, preferably by ditching Kinect and letting people buy the Xbox One (and use it) without requiring that stupid camera.
malokevi  +   534d ago
Ohh man, some more games coming out in the first year/year-and-a-half would be amazing news. I'm already psyched for whats coming.... more good games and I just might PLOTZ.

No mandatory Kinect is okay but selling a Kinect-less sku will be a huge mistake in my opinion.

Kinect is an integral part of MS' gameplan... people need to stop expecting that to change.
ZodTheRipper  +   534d ago
^This is hoping, not expecting. I don't know anyone who's really looking forward to using Kinect. People only want the Xbone now because of a few (timed?) exclusives.
Manic2014  +   534d ago
@Zod18
The console is really good the feature's look brilliant the only thing's turning customer's away is the Price, Kinect and The DRM 180 that happend recently. The exclusive's are going to stay exclusive except for titanfall as due two the New IP's being owned by MS and the existing IP's are being re-bought by MS. Yes you can maybe expect Titan fall to be coming to PS4 within the next 3 years.
rainslacker  +   534d ago
I think at the very least they should show some games using Kinect. If it's not going to be used any better next gen than it was this gen, then what's the point? So you can spend an extra $100 for something you'll rarely use except for forced functionality?

It was rather disappointing at E3 after they made a huge deal about Kinect at the reveal, to have so much focus on Smartglass and 2nd screen gaming. I was sitting there during half the game demos saying to myself, "Maybe Nintendo really did think ahead some", as they at least included a 2nd screen standard. And I will extend my first argument of spending an extra $100 towards the Wii U console for something that seems like forced/underutilized technology.
greenlantern2814  +   534d ago
Most likely at gamescon for ms
1 announce release date.
2 Xbox1 games running on Xbox1, and game play shown for games that have only had cg trailers like sunset overdrive
3 talk about the drm reversal to try to make it clear they are no longer doing that.
4 I believe they have 3 as of yet announced games from statements made pre e3 most likely you will see these.
5 no price drop or Kinect removal but maybe subscription plan like Xbox 360 had.
And they will talk about cloud and how much better it is for you to choose to be connected to the internet.
Prcko  +   535d ago
i think microsoft said they still have some exclusives to show this year,maybe something at gamescom?
abzdine  +   534d ago
at the same time they still haven't showed anything Kinect related other than the may 21st TV disaster reveal.
i think some kinect games are to be expected at gamescom, Kinect sports 2 from RARE or something...

Sony also said they has exclusives that will be revealed at Gamescom, and those i'm more looking forward to cause we know nothing about what the european studios have been up to during the last 2-3 years.
CRAIG667  +   534d ago
I think it will be mainly kinect orientated games wise so I am not to fussed about seeing it.

They also need to clear up(which I think they will) their general messaging/policies regarding the future of the xbox brand...
DiRtY  +   534d ago
Kinect Sports: Rivals is already announced.
joefrost00  +   534d ago
Actually they have they just did the smart thing and didnt make it highly noticeable
They announced at e3:
Kinect sports rivals
Zoo tycoon
Disney fantasia(also on 360)
All are heavy kinect
I dont think I will be getting any of them lol but looking at the new kinect and the improvements it at least deserves a chance

Besides all of you waiting on them to show kinect games as there exclusives at the conference keep waiting MS already said(before e3) that there 15 exclusives for the first year NONE were kinect only games and all were disc based(meaning no arcade download games)
MikeMyers  +   534d ago
So now that they showed new games and new ip's some people are still grasping at Kinect only games? Weird. I guess that shows right there some people were never interested in the first place which begs the question, why go out of your way and post in Xbox topics then other than to troll and be a fanboy?

Microsoft said E3 would be all about games, many thought differently and continued the theatrics on how they are no longer concerned about games. E3 was all about games. Now we have Gamescom and people are now doubting what will be shown there for the Xbox One and how it's going to be all Kinect. Interesting since this site is supposed to be for gamers, not trolls and fanboys.
deepio  +   534d ago
@MikeMyers - You're absolutely right. I can't believe people are still throwing that "it'll just be Kinect games" line after Microsoft showed none at all at E3. If anything they 'should' at least show some Kinect games. At least that way we'd know why the dam thing is worth the extra money.
deepio  +   534d ago
Btw, when I say no kinect games at E3, I mean during the press conference.
malokevi  +   534d ago
"They announced at e3:

Thats awesome. I didn't even notice.

...and not awesome BECAUSE I didn't notice, lol. It's awesome because I was hoping they would show a few Kinect games, and apparently they did!

It's nice because it draws in a younger audience.... and my girlfriend. I'm already committed to getting ZUMA.

Sony better show more exclusives because their launch exclusives are nothing exciting right now.

Besides their announcements about DRM and the such. Sony's E3 press conference was pretty weak. IMO

abzdine  +   534d ago
@Ginesis:

hey, i dont know what you're talking about when you write things without thinking.
E3 was the best place for Sony to push their vision about online and DRM, and see the result of that for yourself! Also, indie support was a very important point that they wanted to show and they did that beautifully. No DRM announcements, PS4 design, price and indie support weighs more than any game!!!! it's one of the reasons EVERYONE says SONY destroyed and bitch slapped MS at E3.

Before you say i'm a troll (i'm a Sony fan and so what?), read my posts from beginning to end, i always give arguments to my opinions. If they are different from yours that's not what's gonna make me or you a troll.

now to continue, E3 has ended and all media and people praise Sony for showing how close they were to their fanbase and that even without showing ANY games because everyone (even blind people) know how good Sony's first party studios are to make games.

That being said, Gamescom and TGS will be ALL about games. Why? because they've already announced the price for Europe and what they want is to focus about games. if there are no new exclusive games being shown then say what you want. SCEE has a countless number of talent studios.
QuickdrawMcgraw  +   534d ago
I feel I was burned last gen when it came to MS exclusives(or lack of).So MS can announce 1 billion exclusives if they want.I won't buy Xbox1 till I see the finished games.

The only reasons the Sony conference was so well received were the price point, used games and the drm. The games were underwhelming by far, and it was a snoozefest until the above reasons were mentioned.

I think you meant country's, and not counties, Europe is not a country, so we dont have states that are split in counties.

But anyway, if you want to supply the country's with the most customers with plenty of units, its wise to start in those country's first, instead of spreading them around in country's where they dont sell much yet.

Theres no point in having Xb1's lying on the shelves, while having a shortage in other country's.

@ Foxgod

Not sure why you have so many disagrees....Anyone who disagreed with you are clearly idiots.

Of course you supple first where your product sells, then when you have enough product on the shelves penetrating your major market, then you send out to the slower weaker markets.

Even Sony said they may not have enough to supply Europe or Japan come launch simply because they want to penetrate the US market right away, which is the largest gaming market.

These are the European launch countries
Austria
Belgium
Denmark
Finland
France
Germany
Ireland
Italy
Netherlands
Norway
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland
United Kingdom

I was mistaked there are 14. There are 28 members in the EU which I based my figures. There are more in Europe than are in the EU and I left them out so my figure is a lot higher than 28.

There is 21 launch countries around the world.

And those it is released in wont have the tv features its pushing like the second coming...
rainslacker  +   534d ago
I don't think it's a big deal to limit release to the higher selling countries. It's not even uncommon, although it does suck for people in those countries. The region locks don't help.

At a European conference though they will have to show how all those extra TV features they've been touting the past few months will work for my fellow gamers across the pond. Either that, or they may focus even heavier on games, which wouldn't be a bad thing IMO. The higher price tag overseas has to be justified, and if features available in the US are gimped simply because it's Europe, it's a little unfair to you guys. I'm sure MS will work it out though. They do business everywhere in the world, and they certainly have the means to make it work.

@viking I dont think its.nothing they can do look at what has happen:
MS showed nothing but games at e3 good right No
Sony had one of the most boring e3 conference from them in awhile showing games people already knew about
To let you know how MS fans were talking about there exclusives and new game reveals were sony fans were talking about a tech demo and a CG trailer( the order)
Then on top of everything they showed two third party games games one completely cutoff and the other skips
The only real applause came when they showed final fantasy XV(also on xbox) and when they took jabs at MS
Allof that and people say they won e3 lol
People criticizing MS using PCs for third party to run their games(something they do during development)
But with the price and the DRM and price its mostly their own fault
Even going back on the DRM they got bad press for that
Let's me know whatever MS do wont be good enough
vikingland1  +   534d ago
@joefrost00
So true, MS has only one more issue to contend with from what I've seen. Most people hate that you can't disconnect the Kinect. Even though MS has said it can be turned off people still want to be able to disconnect it. If it can be turned off it should be able to be disconnected also. It doesn't bother me but it does bother many other people.
n4rc  +   534d ago
Kinect has to be connected so people don't try and sell them..

Their next 7-8 years of development are going to be based around the fact that everyone has it..

Once people stop looking at it as a add on peripheral that you can take or leave and realize its part of the console.. Maybe then the stupidity will stop
extermin8or  +   534d ago
@n4rc well its not stupidty really, people are saying they like the console but hate the kinect requirement-if they do what you suggest they' just be saying they hate the console?

Back on topic Sony didn't show many games but in their defence they did already sow 4/5 games at their reveal so MS haven't shown that many exclusive games more than them, have to remember that they showed none at their reveal if you want to compare on that point. The 3rd party games they showed have FREE exclusive content after several YEARS of MS showing off COD due to PAID TIMED exclusive DLC it seems abit rich to complain about that. MS using PC's WITH DIFFERENT SPECS AND TOTALLY DIFFERENT MORE POWERFUL GPU is an issue and if you seriously try and say it isn't then you're a fool. DRM was the right thing to address I personally think Sony's confrence 5 mins with the Sony pictures guy rambling would've been better spent on a new PS4 exclusive, and that the walking dead 400 days bit should've been cut down for another vita exclusive to be tossed in there, along with the AC4 section totally cut. Anyway back on topic I'll be interested to see what they show-first time they've bothered showing up in years, I'm going to give sony credit for having done a gamescom show every year for the last however many years instead of just when they have new hardware to push-however they better show some new ps4 games otherwise the gaming media will crucify them in relation to that aspect anyway I suspect.

Wake up dude YOU are the one living in denial. This is no theory this is fact. These dissolving of trading pacts will certainly impact XB1 sales, the PS4 is from Japan and will not suffer the same fate. I HOPE THEY BAN THE XB1 in Europe because of Kinect capabilities.

I'm guessing this is going to be all about new european partnerships and games from 1st party european studios . Rare,crytek, playground(former pgr devs).I remember playground teased a game much earlier which everyone thought would be revealed at e3 but wasnt. Rare still has some games in development I.e before e3 there was a rumored adventure game which was described as family friendly having pixar quality graphics set in a jungle, there is also crackdown(ruffian studios), lion head and I'm hoping something from Ninja theory, epic and the 5 new studios which microsoft said were part of their new 1st party programme together wit black tusk studios etc. Nice work microsoft.with Phil harrison I.e former sony exec on board, what could go wrong?

I'm getting a PS4, but hope to see enough good MS exclusives to get me jealous. This is what drives competition. I wonder if PS3 would get this amazing line-up we have if it was not the though beginning.

Maybe they can convince me to get an Xbox.

I am looking forward to more gameplay footage of Sunset Overdrive, Black Tusk new game, Quantum Break, D4 and new footage of Crackdown. There have been some excellent PC games, specifically, horror that I would love to see on XBox One.

MS hasn't been much of a press conference holder at Gamescom in the past. Typically they just show up with stuff from E3 so this could be interesting.

I believe they'll announce that developers will be able to self publish.
christocolus  +   534d ago
i feel so too. may be not like sony but there will be an incentive or some kind of agreement
kingslayer1000  +   534d ago
We just gotta face the facts people, the Xbox One is gonna get dominated by the ps4. It doesn't matter what games they announce for it. Xbox is sinking real fast.
CrossingEden  +   534d ago
hmmmm, that comment seems SOOO credibile coming from a person with a ps4 as their profile pic /s
FrigidDARKNESS  +   534d ago
Ps4 is safe now with its pre-orders until MS start flexing its muscle then we'll see.
kingslayer1000  +   534d ago
Can't flex something they don't have.
Dlacy13g  +   534d ago
@kingslayer1000 people said the same thing about the PS3 and Sony ended up doing just fine.

I dont want to sound like a toddler but from what i read here on n4g it seems most sony fans are more vocal and biased. i aint saying there aint some bias from the xbox fans either but i see a lot of pointless and baseless comments and facts coming from sony fans and this has made me come to the conclusion that xbox fansare older gamers, read more facts and tend to make conclusions based on facts ,are less biased and better balanced gamers.....just thinking it out loud.i have been a fan of this site for years and i decided to create an account recently and im shocked at some things i see in the comments section by the way i plan to get both consoles so im nt taking sides. its something i noticed and its really crazy.you could literally feel the hate the sony fans have towards the xbox and its funny cause the weaker child who is always bullied tends to get more sympathy so i advice you guys turn down the hate an learn to be balanced healthy gamers.we all win in the end but sony and ms win more cos both companies end up making more money and become richer....lol...

@Christocolus

Probably because you stick to the Xbox threads more, PS4 threads are full of idiot posts from Xbox fanboys.

Given MS is pushing TV with Xbox One and europe tends to be a bit sony / pc heavy ....they would be wise to do 3 things at gamescom:

1) announce some good quality TV patrnerships officially like Skyplayer, and atleast one other major provider of tv in europe.

2) announce exclusives nobody knows about.

3) announce more paid or free to play pc titles coming to xbox one like world of tanks is on xbox 360.

Im just so ready 4 next gen period. I have both systems cant lie im more of a M$ fan cause they basiclly took over for sega. But I buy both consoles and support both so Im a hardcore gamer first.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   534d ago
Hope so.They've been treating gamescom like a redheaded step child these last few years.

With the dawn of a new gen, and all media backing Sony they pretty much have to grovel this time.
