Top 5 Xbox One Announcements We Want At Gamescom

GR:"Aside from the complete specs awaiting gamers under the hood, these are the five things we want to hear from Microsoft at Gamescom 2013. Held every year in Cologne, Germany, Gamescom is Europe's answer to E3, encompassing all walks of gaming and even opening its doors to the public. For many European gamers, it's the place to be.

"For Microsoft, it's time to get that messaging in check, drum up excitement for its products and partners, and drop a few pieces of good news." (Battlefield 4, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Microsoft, Xbox One)

I hope gamescom brings a lot to the table honestly.

Things I want from MS at Gamescom

1. Fable IV, Crackdown 3, Banjo-kazooie
2. Halo gameplay
3. Different build gameplay of DR3 and Ryse.
4. Kinect 2 demonstration
5. Cloud demonstration. So we can see it for ourselves if it's gonna be a REAL deal or a BS
6. Indie self-publish
7. New details about the outside of 21 launch country

5. I can tell you now the whole cloud thing is BS. Dedicated servers take time to work. All they are is a glorified PC in a big room with a big internet connection. It takes time for that data to go from your home, to the datacenter, and back again. And that lag in transfer is one of the biggest problems, its not as fast as doing the number crunching on your console.

If its going to run AI or actual ingame things, theres going to be that lag. If you suffer a sudden internet slowdown, so will your game. Thats why its not going to happen.

All its going to be doing is data collection and matchmaking, distribute patches, that kinda thing. It is not going to revolutionise your gaming.

And its certainly not going to enhance things like graphics

amazing comment kanzes, well said
Eldyraen  +   802d ago
I agree with just about everything.

#1 is what I want most--on top of maybe a Kameo 2 and a few other old franchises returning.

After that maybe new IPs somewhat similar (Platform, Action, or RPG) if not a returning franchise. Shooters and racers are great and all but they make up about half or more of MS's most supported genres (and think they get a substantially larger part of the budget).

To be honest I don't see Halo gameplay coming till VGAs (its usual where MS does it now). I think we may see more of Black Tusks game though first which we know less of (as Halo is still Halo).

So much we can still see from everyone pre/post launch of new consoles.

A Banjo-Kazooie game announcement at Gamescom would be megaton-calibur.
abzdine  +   802d ago
I'll be at gamescom trying all the games. I'm so excited I can't wait for it to happen..
Loki86  +   802d ago
@adamandkate Sorry but you severely misinformed or don't have a clue what you are trying to say. Cloud computing is very possible and has several different uses beyond dedicated servers. I've typed this up so many times, I'll just let you do some more research.

"4. Multiplayer Dead Rising 3 Features 16 Players, Open-world Free-play, And Even More Zombies"

I don't disagree with that but hes asking allot. The games already bigger than Deadrising 1 and 2 combined seamless open world with no loading.

I am very interested in the Co Op mode but I don't know if Capcome will opt to 16 player open world, I mean here's hoping though.

"1. Xbox One's Solution For Indie Games."

A story once again popped up regarding Self publishing for X1. http://www.polygon.com/2013...

I think that the number one announcement would me that the kinect is NOT required and without it the cost would be 349.99. I'd get one then.

Sadly all will will likely get is Thunder and a tease of the next character
ftwrthtx  +   802d ago
MS needs to announce something that will awe gamers. A new IP or a long awaited sequel might do it.
dbjj12088  +   802d ago
I don't think Xbox fans really want new IP so much as they want more information on the next Halo :P
Eldyraen  +   802d ago
New Halo info is killer and will move consoles but new IPs are what keeps things fresh. I am more than happy to wait for another Halo reveal if it means we get a new IP that is actually worth our time and money. After all we know Halo is coming.
doctorstrange  +   802d ago
Can't I have both?
acharlez  +   802d ago
I would love more Halo information!!!
ape007  +   802d ago
halo is halo and it will come next gen and better than ever

BUT what about crackdown? that game was amazing and very unappreciated, a next gen crackdown will be great and have loads of potential
dbjj12088  +   802d ago
What about a new Fusion Frenzy game?
insertcoin  +   802d ago
I just hope they plan out their booth space better. Their E3 booth was a claustrophobic cluster.
thecurseddevil  +   802d ago
number 1 : dont call it xbox 1.
dbjj12088  +   802d ago
Number 1: Don't make us buy a Kinect. We know it's bull sh**.
dmeador  +   802d ago
You should check out the tech behind it, and the potential (some new info that they released is a good start). You might be surprised
Wikkid666  +   802d ago
There is still so much info we need about the console and the dashboard.... let alone all the games.
Electric-flamingo  +   802d ago
All this nigga needs is a realease date
Dlacy13g  +   802d ago
Things I want from Xbox at gamescom:
1) clarity on Xbox Live Gold offering for Xbox One. whats it doing to compete with PSN+
2) A proper reveal of the Black Tusk game
3) Reveal the Lionhead game ... Fable 4?
4) More details on Quantum Break
5) Resolution on how indies will be handled
6) Details on headset issues...will there be an adaptor? How much will the "cheap" headset cost? Is there going to be a chat pad?
7) Racing wheel support... what racing wheels will be avaiable for use at launch
8) Additional games: 1st party, Indie, 3rd party... just show me some more. :)

and not on my must have but something I hope gets announced.... what is Epics next game for consoles & what happened to Fort Nite?
BattleTorn  +   802d ago
Good list.

Totally agree with #2,4,6. (especially #2)

#3 I'm not sure if we will see it yet, part of me thinks the Fable HD remake is going to delay us seeing what they're working on.

And I would love to see Fort Nite confirmed for X1

How about " kinect isn't required anymore" that would be better than anything else....

Dlacy13g  +   802d ago
You know I want to see a release date too...BUT given they already commited to November, I am actually ok with them holding that card back and letting Sony announce first on their date. Sony is going to have to narrow things down soon to retailers ... MS given they said November have a little more wiggle room left. Hell, MS could potentially hold release date until TGS if they really wanted to.

I definitely feel like Dead Rising could get by with less than 16-player multiplayer - like 8, or even 4-6. (anything is multitudes better than the previous 2)
Also, show us Black Tusk.
Lucreto  +   802d ago
They are going to have to talk about TV again this time what to expect for European implementation. Since they only have an hour it will have to be brief.
acharlez  +   802d ago
We'll prob get a bit more info on Fable HD as well.
Plagasx  +   802d ago
What I want to see from Gamescom?

Proof that Kinect 2 is worthy of gamer's time.
