Gamescom is Microsoft’s time to shine in crucial Europe battleground

MMGN writes: Despite attracting 300,000 people from more than 80 countries, Germany’s Gamescom is often seen as E3’s little brother. Yet they serve a similar purpose, providing their respective regions with the best access to the biggest games and gaming hardware. For one very important and powerful player, this Gamescom will be unlike any other. Microsoft essentially has the stage to itself, and in the European battlefield, a region it’s losing mightily in to Sony and its PlayStation 4, it has the potential to reinvent the Xbox One for European gamers, and establish Gamescom as an important event on the gaming calendar.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm just excited to see what MS has in store. As someone who really enjoyed Crackdown 2 I am really wanting to see it.

Crackdown 2? Ewww. The first one was great. I have high hopes for this one mind you.

@_-EDMIX-_ Man, if you think Xbox games would coming on PC, have you seen Blue Dragon , Lost Odyssey , PGR series , Perfect Dark series , Kameo , Banjo , Halo War , Crackdown series(on Xbox 360) on PC? You're just ugry fanboy.

Erik73571205d ago

That was 5+ years ago.....the fact that they are talking about bringing not only gears war remaster to pc, but also gears 4 is a sign.......and phil said they plan on bringing more titles to pc, and plan on having more halo games on pc and said they would like to expand and do more than just spartan assault....

It's happening and xbox fanboys get mad about it.

And even if they did...who cares?

The fact that we have so many that want to play MS games just goes to show the appeal of the X1 catalog more than anything.

If people want to support MS IP's on console or on PC's I say let them.

Just show me Scalebound, Qantum Break , Crackdown and Halo 5. That's all i ask. Anything else = Gravy for my eyes. :)

Sureshot1205d ago (Edited 1205d ago )

Here's hoping for some Masterchief gameplay!

Septic1205d ago

What can that announcement be??

christocolus1205d ago (Edited 1205d ago )


It must be something huge cos going by the Hall plans for Gamescom, 343i will have an entire hall all to themselves.

I really don't see Xbox One gaining ground on PlayStation 4 in Europe, no matter how great their conference is

TwoForce1205d ago

Bring it, Microsoft ! Show what you got.

_-EDMIX-_1205d ago

I just want to see Sea Of Thieves on PC, see if you can use the 360 controller (likely not but who knows).

What some actual ReCore footage and clearly want some Scalebound footage, anything else......gravy.

Also more PC announcements of XONE titles.

TwoForce1205d ago

Dude, don't be too harsh.

_-EDMIX-_1205d ago

lolz, bringing up PC seems to strike nerves. Dat insecurity doe!

The disagrees just can't take that owning a PC and getting MS published titles that are also on XONE will be a thing soon.

BlackPanther1205d ago

I don't think it has to do with any insecurities per say but the way you come off is as an asshole.

It isn't what you say but how you say it, but I'm sure you knew your response would cause you to have many disagrees and cause some issues so you probably counted on this.

And while your at it Microsoft send some of those heavy hitting PC games over to xbox such as total war and age of empires.
