If you have a hankering for events that showcase Microsoft, then fear not because Gamescom is just around the corner. Gamescom 2015, which takes place in Cologne Germany next week, is the biggest consumer gaming show in the world. Yes, it’s even bigger than E3 and Microsoft will be there with Xbox while Sony opted to forego the event this year. Without a Sony presence this year, Gamescom presents a huge opportunity for Xbox to get a leg up on its biggest competitor.
If you recalled, last week we reported that Xbox Daily LIVE will be broadcasting from Gamescom 2015 just as they did at E3. Xbox shows are usually fun and full of great news and exclusives. If you fancy tuning in, as this page says, you can see the shows on your Xbox or at Xbox.com starting Tuesday, August. 4th at 7 am PDT.
Under the leadership of Phil Spencer, Xbox One has slowly been recovering from the mistakes made early in the console’s lifecycle. Xbox is now a shining light for Microsoft in recent years and it shows. Events such as Gamescom help showcase the Xbox’s team commitment to its users and fans.
