Microsoft plans to reveal the “next chapter of Xbox gaming experiences,” at Gamescom in August, according to Xbox EMEA’s Graeme Boyd. This marks the return of MS at the Cologne event after skipping out in 2012. According to Boyd, “Xbox will be back at gamescom this August,” which means between the next-Xbox reveal on May 21, and E3 in June, there’s lots of Xbox news heading your way. Gamescom 2013 takes place August 21- 25. Via Polygon.




    Slightly off topic, but just out of interest, does anyone know if Gears of War is still banned in Germany?

    So games for Xbox360 or Nextbox? This could be interesting.

    I’m going to Gamescom again this year, like last year. We’ll be going into the business center where all those behind closed doors demos are. Hopefully MS lets us in :)

    Moonwalker tries to enter the room. “No phones allowed!” Moonwalker:”Bbbbut it’s a windows phone!?” .

    “Carry on”

    @1: only the first one was and still is banned here. the other 2, while much more violent imo, seem to be perfectly fine for the mature german gamer :)
    you can buy the uk or at version of gears one online of course and it is not against the law to do so. many shops offered gears one when it launched(the austria version). you just had to ask for it. they just weren´t allowed to put it on the shelves i think…
    i buy most games in the uk anyway. lots of games are getting censored here. kind of annoying really. games are also cheaper in the uk. often 10 euros or even more, shipping included…

    Thanks for the info. Kind of strange that only the first Gears is considered too violent…

    I’m not sure if there’s anything Gears 1 that quite beats this:
