Could be cool to see if we do get some legit surprises from MS what does everyone think. IMO I think if MS isn;t teasing some shit DLC or add on service or whatever they may defeat Sony this Xmas but I could also be reading to hard into it also.

"Microsoft has announced that its Gamescom 2014 Xbox briefing will take place on August 12, and hinted at some of the things that might be revealed."

There should be surprises from both Microsoft and Sony at this event. What would be the point of having this event if there are no announcements?

Can't wait. More exclusive games and maybe an emulator or VR announcement. This should be interesting and it's less then 2 weeks away.

Another price cut to $350

They should just keep hammering exclusive games, both indie and AAA... this is the correct course of redemption and for 8 generations, has been the way back into gamers hearts.

MS surprises don't usually end up being that special....I will reserve my excitement.

Great, now when they happen I won't be surprised.

Well considering most surprises and announcements are made at E3 it's a nice change though I don't expect much from both.

These publishers always tease "big" surprises and it always ends up being disappointing.

#15 Edited by CyberLips (1824 posts) -

That's what they all say every year, i don't expect anything special from either side.

Conker will also make an appearance in Sunset Overdrive.

Show off new games? New tech? New peripherals? New services?

I'm prepared to be disappointed. I'm not excited about shit like that when they announce it to the public because it ends up being a disappointment.

Merging the Xbox Division with EA more likely.

Quantum Break is the reason I'm tuning into Gamescomm this year, can't wait to finally see the game!!!

#31 Edited by lamprey263 (25616 posts) -

Well, it'd be awesome if they could achieve an update that brings full Xbox 360 backwards compatibility. Though, I'm not holding my breath on this.

#32 Posted by hoosier7 (3981 posts) -

Meh, this happens for every single event from every single company and i can probably only think of a few genuine surprises between them.

^ ^ This. Not even Godny is immune to this. The best surprises are always leaked before the conference. The weaksauce ones that no one cares about are what usually get revealed at these conferences.

Hopefully they announce a $299 price. That's the only way that piece of crap will sell.

I miss surprises.

Hi I'm Major Nelson....I'd like to announce that we're giving up on the Xbox 1 and starting on the Xbox For Real......did you guys really think this was it?.....like we would really force Kinect on you.

GOTCHA!

I doubt it, problem is they already cut the price cutting it again so soon would mean less profit for them.

Live demos for everyone's favorites! Gears, Halo and Forza for everyone!

#43 Posted by nutcrackr (12847 posts) -

More remakes probably, gears 1 remastered.

#44 Edited by drummerdave9099 (894 posts) -

Hoping for the best, expecting Kranky Kong levels of exciting announcements.

#45 Edited by Shewgenja (11039 posts) -

XBone without a megaton announcement

#46 Posted by Daious (2076 posts) -

They are exactly doing a gamescon conference this year? Didn't they bail out last year?

#47 Posted by tacoma1972 (197 posts) -

It's MS. Bunch of bs, flip flopping, back room deals to try and make it seem like there was some planning with what appears to be a rushed joke of a machine. I love that it's getting owned. This Christmas will be interesting. I expect the ps4 to sell out and the flop to fill shelves. Stupid delusional lemmings keep holding on.

#48 Posted by silversix_ (16233 posts) -

'Big' for MS's standards is like a month of exclusive CoD dlc lol

@Shewgenja: Really wish I didn't see that

Still beats Sony and their exclusive console debut indie announcements.
