Microsoft has decided to take Xbox out of Gamescom, according to Game Informer.
Gamescom is essentially Europe’s E3 that is held this year in August. Last year, Sony said no to holding a conference in favor of attending another. Microsoft is reportedly hosting a fanfest instead of the larger Gamescom in Cologne.
Xbox let everything spill out of their system at this year’s E3. I can’t imagine them topping the news of Project Scorpio, so anything after this is going to be “extended look at (insert game here).”
Regardless, I’m excited for Xbox’s and Sony’s lineups for this holiday season. Microsoft dipping out of Gamecom changes nothing.
