In the announcement though, the company said that it will be launching "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories" on Insider Xbox on August 21 at 7:30am PT. Gamescom is one of the largest gaming trade shows around - outpacing E3 significantly in terms of attendance - so naturally, many game companies will be heading there to show of their latest and greatest. But don't get your hopes up for a massive console reveal just yet. It seems unlikely that they'd unveil something "all-new" so soon and at an event like Gamescom, but that's exactly what Major Nelson is saying.
In the U.S., the Xbox One S 1TB Starter bundle including 3 months of Xbox game Pass, 3 months of Xbox live Gold and a free copy of the Rare Replay anthology was just $229.99.
The Xbox booth will feature 25 games you can play if you're attending the event. Among them are titles such as Ori And The Will of The Wisps, Forza Horizon 4, and a new content pack for State of Decay 2.
Hopefully, Xbox will have even more up its sleeves when Gamescom rolls around this year.
Finally, Microsoft says that a new Xbox-exclusive mode for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be playable for the first time at Gamescom, so that'll definitely be something to keep an eye on. After all, gamers love surprise announcements, and there are a ton of games Xbox could potentially demo at the show, plus rumored features like mod support.
