Microsoft is planning to show off 25 Xbox One and PC games at Europe's equivalent to E3, but definitely not the Xbox Two.

Even though the current generation Xbox One was initially released in late 2013 and saw subsequent updates with the Xbox One S and Xbox One X in 2016 and 2017 respectively, we aren't likely to see next-generation Xbox hardware at the event. Considering the fact that it wasn't at E3 2018, Gamescom may just be the ideal place to debut the controller, with hundreds of thousands of visitors in attendance. Also on the agenda for gamescom 2018 is "all-new Xbox hardware", according to Microsoft.

Perhaps we'll see the first Project Scarlett device during Microsoft's Inside Xbox stream at Gamescom. New games are added every month, and you can cancel the service at any time.

In April previous year , thousands of people were shuttled out of the two villages to government territory in an agreement. Israel's Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman stated last month that, "We are closely monitoring events in southern Syria".

The new Elite Controller, according to a leak earlier this year, will allegedly replace the "dated" microUSB port with USB-C and will feature Bluetooth connectivity.

The live broadcast will be available starting at 4:30 pm CEST on August 21st. Microsoft will be at Gamescom in Germany next month, and it's bringing some surprises.

It named some of those games in today's announcement - Forza Horizon 4, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, and State of Decay 2 - but the rest are still largely a mystery. Should they have a brand new console in the near (ish) term, they may alienate the die-hard fans who've bought the newer Xbox One X, though savvy consumers would now that they - like PS4 Pro owners - bought a stop-gap system.
