Why you're going to LOVE Gamescom 2013

GamesRadar - If you’re not currently located in the glorious realm of castles, dragons, lederhosen and relaxed drinking attitudes that is Europe -- or even if you are -- there’s a good chance that you’re not aware what a huge fat slab of Big Deal Gamescom is. Much younger and far less well-known than the glamourously tanned, sparkle-toothed E3, next week’s GC (based in Cologne, Germany) is nevertheless serious gaming business indeed. Now becoming comparable to E3 in scale, spectacle and industry importance, it’s categorically worth every bit of attention you can give it this year.

"Having Gamescom a couple of months after E3 allows them to deliver a two-hit combo of hype, dropping initial announcements in L.A. and then following up with a haymaker of additional content and revelations in Cologne. With the end of this year being next-gen ground zero, Gamescom 2013 is going to be more important than ever in that respect."

Awww yeah, MS and Sony are gonna go all out to hype their consoles up! Bring on the announcements.

I just have to find the times for the U.S. for when the conferences are streamed.

P.S. - Is MS not streaming their conference or am I misunderstanding? I saw something about that earlier today.

black0o1076d ago

yes MS will have a privet conference but the announcements will be streamed after that ''trailers and gameply'' .. and i find it odd really i was waiting to see the UI in action and the new boss of the x1 division

slimeybrainboy1076d ago

What so will press come out of the conference and just spread the word on everything MS said or are MS doing announcements via twitter or what's going to happpen?

minimur121075d ago

Here ya go...

"Spencer further stated that the approach Microsoft was taking didn't allow GamesCom 2013 media briefing to be live-streamed, however there will be a short stage presentation."

"there will be a short stage presentation."

I'm guessing a few more exclusives announced. Not much if it's gonna be short one though...

"Most of the time will be spent with the press getting time with the developers and their games. You should think about this as a room with a lot of hands-on."

I'm guessing most of the stuff they showed at E3 will be hands on and whatnot...

games_FTW1076d ago

from you link "however there will be a short stage presentation" then he wright " Xbox will have the biggest booth ever at the event" that two sentences like oil and water they don't mix something tell me MS well screw up at gamescom.

really really hoping for the 1st party studios to show off their stuff!

sherimae24131076d ago

im going to love it... because of the upcoming unannounced games
that needed to be announced specially for vita and ps4 ^_^

sherimae24131076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

siguro mga next year pa poh, ^_^
gusto ko muna mga bagong laro sa vita, ung mga AAA type
hindi dahil gusto ko, kundi para dumami ang bumili ng vita,
pero baka bumili rin me, pag type ko ung laro ^_^

translation: :p
(maybe at next year, ^_^
all i want for now is more vita games, those AAA type
its not that i want it, but more people will buy a vita if there are games that announced that will interests them,
maybe ill buy it too, if a certain game is my type ^_^)

happy gaming ^_^ its fun being a gamer

I can't wait man. Road trip to Cologne! I'm gonna be there on Saturday.

abzdine1076d ago

i cannot believe it's just a week away.

Septic1076d ago

Oi respond to my PM! We better meet up!

One week! So excited man. This time next week I'll be driving down listening to my mates complain about how uncomfortable it is in the back of the car as I drove through Germany.

Mr-Dude1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

It's like a 45 min drive from my home... Going also!
Looking forward to feel that smooth PS4 controller in me hands!

Septic1075d ago

Ah, hope to meet you there. I'll be with the GAMEONDAILY.COM crew sporting white t-shirts, trolling cosplayers by dancing awkwardly in front of them and giving developers a hard time.

Demster1076d ago

For real dude? You comin all the way down here to germany? Damn you really must love gamescom! I kinda lost interest in it, it became more of a neckbeard/cosplayer kind of thing by now.
Games Convention in Leipzig was the real deal back then. Gamescom is just there for milking the industry imo.
But I'll be there on satturday too tho. I wanna see the OS Vita Cup (skateboarding competition) and Valve.

Septic1075d ago

Ah man don't suck away the fun! I've never been and have heard that its even bigger than E3.

This year though, I thought it was a must to go considering that a new generation of gaming is upon us and I'll be in my 30's when the new gen comes out :(

7 hour trip there and back...its gonna be worth it.

" it became more of a neckbeard/cosplayer kind of thing by now. "

UGH...please don't tell me that's true.

Looking forward to see what more i will possibly be playing on the X1 soon.

Hellsvacancy1076d ago

I'm hoping Fallout 4 gets a showing, even it it's just a silly teaser trailer

It's the only next gen title I'm bothered about (and The Witcher 3)

No_Limit1076d ago

Fox, Gamescom isn't too far from your backyard, are you going?
