Microsoft confirms Gamescom 2013 attendance


Microsoft will be present at GamesCom 2013 as an exhibitor. This follows it decision to skip the show last year, no doubt due to it having not much new to show. That'll be different this time around we imagine.

No details was revealed as to what Microsoft will showcase, but we suspect that the next Xbox will be present and playable.

"2013 is a big year for Xbox. We can not wait to introduce the visitors of the Gamescom, the next chapter entertainment on Xbox. We are pleased to provide further details on this in the coming weeks and months known," said Phil Harrison, Vice President, Interactive Entertainment Business, Microsoft Europe.

Microsoft is hosting an event to unveil the 'next chapter in entertainment' on May 21. GamesCom 2013 will take place from August 21-25.

The "2013 is a big year for Xbox" quote would certainly suggest that rumours of the next Xbox release being put back to 2014 have no foundation, if they ever did anyway. They seem to be leaking more and more positive stories at the moment.

It's going to be big news coming out of both companies over the next few months, but MS have shown nothing yet to believe in again. They'll have to have a good 21st of May.

It's looking good, Lets just hope we see a game console rather than a "multi-media device" Sigh....

I dont mind if they have a few little bits liek that but I want them to focus mainly on games, which is my main worry.

Well, they WILL use gamescom to promote the next Xbox for sure. It would be cool if they don't show everything on the Xbox Reveal. Obviously the need to show the box (unlike Sony). But I think that it would be a great idea if they hold back a little bit. Gradually presenting all of the features. Please note that this is different than the reveal of new Apple or Samsung product : Hey, we have a new fancy product with that, that and that, you can order it now and it will start shipping next week. These are consoles. They need to build up the interest of the people. People will buy the console if they believe that they must have it. And, most of the time, that is accomplished with a little bit of mystery.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
