Pre-Gamescom 2018: Microsoft will announce new Xbox One bundles and accessories

It would seem the gaming world got a little too excited this morning when Microsoft vaguely hinted “all-new hardware” would be shown off at Gamescom 2018 only to later clarify that while this won’t be the reveal of Xbox Project Scarlet, the next-generation console expected to release in 2020 or 2021, instead they plan to announce a new Xbox One system bundle and new accessories (possibly including a rumored Elite Controller iteration that was alleged leaked recently).

This information was originally debuted in an article titled Xbox is coming to gamescom by Xbox media spokesperson Major Nelson, who himself started off as a self-made games journalist detailing news revolving around the original Xbox before eventually being hired on by Microsoft as a permanent figurehead to the brand. For those wondering, technically the event is meant to be spelled in all lowercase letters as per stylized renditions and logos, Major Nelson didn’t make an error it’s just the weird way the biggest gaming event in Germany likes to have their name typed out.

As for the leaked controller, nothing is certain yet but there are some details floating around the internet in the form of rumors as to what will be seen this August 21 – 25 when Gamescom commences.

A demo was released on Friday for Capcom’s Xbox One launch title, Dead Rising 3. Apparently users have been complaining about the lack of video game demos on the Xbox One. Microsoft’s Larry Hryb (Major Nelson) has stated that more demos will be made available. DR3 will require 7GB of space and will be available in every territory the game was sold. So if you own a X1 and have been on the fence about Capcom’s latest, you now have a way to make to help make a decision.
