I'm still kind of mad about Microsoft not showing up to gamescom or Tokyo Game Show last year. It was like going to a party where you expected one of the regulars to show up, but the whole experience just ended up being awkward without them.
Hey, where's Microsoft tonight?
Oh, uh, they were busy. Washing their hair or something.
Microsoft says that they're ready to party this year, though. Marketing manager Graeme Boyd said so on Twitter:
Xbox will be back at gamescom this August. "Next chapter of Xbox gaming experiences" on show. Can't wait, LOVE gamescom.
If we do hear about a new Xbox system in the coming weeks, gamescom would be a good place and time to show it off.
I've already got my party hat on, Microsoft.
