Microsoft Will Announce Unique XBOX ONE Exclusive At Gamescom

Microsoft have started teasing that they have a new Xbox one exclusive to reveal at Gamescom. Major Nelson had this to say on his podcast.

We’re gonna have a really short stage presentation with some news, talking about some unique exclusive coming to the platform. We’re going to talk about Europe’s biggest franchise and maybe some interesting things. We have some stuff, but most of the time will be spent with the press getting time with the developers, with their games. So you should think about this as a room with a lot of hands-on. We think that these platforms are about the games, and we want to give the press time with the games.

He also stated:

 There’s no better way than having developers talk about what they’re getting out of the platform, whether it’s cloud functionality, Kinect stuff. Rare will be there. You’ll have the Forza team talking about the work that they’re doing. You’ll have third parties there. I think it’s really going to be a great show, because the creators are the ones that make these platforms sing.

It’s really going to be the first time at scale consumers are gonna get their hands on Xbox One. It’s going to be tremendous. Our studios and third party studios are hard at work filling out the booth. Biggest booth we’ve ever had.

I’m shortly going to be a full PC gamer but this still does sound exciting. A big sequel of a successful game, exclusively to Xbox could really help Microsoft get ahead in the ‘console war’. If you have any ideas as to what it may be, leave a comment below!

Gamescom will run from August 21-25, so make sure to check back with Unleash The Fanboy for all the latest news.
