E3 has come and gone and we are still waiting for the moment we can purchase, or at least reserve, the new console powerhouse Xbox One X. Next week at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, Xbox will be there and it will mark the first time the Xbox One X is going to be in Europe and they have made a statement on what to expect.
Here at Xbox, we’re still buzzing from our fans’ reaction to our news at E3 – from the unveiling of the Xbox One X to the 42 games shown on our stage. But we’re only just getting started. Today, we’re happy to announce that in August we’re coming to Cologne, Germany for gamescom 2017. This will be the first time Xbox One X will be on the ground in Europe and we’ll have a huge line up of 27 playable games for the Xbox One family of devices and Windows 10 PC from developers around the world, including Forza Motorsport 7, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition and Sea of Thieves.
The biggest thing we can predict is that the Xbox One X is going to be available for pre-sale next week during Gamescom. Microsoft has said that the FCC approval is done and they have a plan for sales. Since the hype as slowly decreased ever since E3, this might be the way they build new hype for the console and then begin sales.
Also, from Tuesday until Saturday of next week, fans will be able to play the Xbox One X at Gamescom as well so if you can make the trip to the event, take some time to enjoy the newest member of the Xbox family.
