    Microsoft dominates Gamescom hall...

    Gamescom the European E3 kicks of in Germany later this month and over 600 companies will be exhibiting the latest in computer and video game hardware and software. The finalised maps of the three main halls have been released with the console manufacturers and the biggest publishers in Halle 5.2. Microsoft has reserved the most floorspace, it has two adjacent stands.
    Floor plan..

    Nice! Microsoft wants to continue to just keep saturating the European market more and more. Glad they have been so successful there. Gamescon should be great this year for sure. Now, just have them cancel TGS all together, and we should be good to go!

    Isn't that three areas? Two indoors and one outdoors?

    Edit: Scratch that.. looks like five seperate areas.

    The PS brand is way stronger in mainland eu, playstation consoles have always beat xbox and the pre-orders for ps4 are easily beating the xbox one. how are they trying to saturate the market more with that price model? There is a 100 euro price difference between ps4 and xbox, and europeans are getting a stiffer deal on the price of the xbox 1 compared to america if you do a direct forex conversion.
    and japan is a doa territory for microsoft. rest of asia and australia are somewhat like eu.

    haha the only reason you'd say that is because MS most likely will not be showing up there. Sony is gonna have a lot of good stuff at TGS, so no.

    I was saying that MS should cancel THEIR appearance at TGS. Nobody wants them there.

    Pretty much.

    I want to see new gameplay of these titles instead of trailers.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    I'd welcome the price drop, another exclusive, or 4GB extra RAM.

    Keep the price up (i paid 699$ for a PS3, I have no problem with the 499$ X1), pack in Kinect so it has 100% support across all possible SKUS and for all consumers BUT... Make sure it's not MANDATORY TO BE PLUGGED IN!!!

    And for the apologist asking "what's the difference between Kinect always connected and your smartphone/laptop cams DUH?"... One, I don't have a laptop, two, I don't have 10 kids prancing around my little cell phone camera THAT'S the difference!

    Bring on games that I want to play. You can flaunt Ryse and Titanfall all you want as the second coming, I have 0 interest in those games!

    Bring me Kinect less Fable!!!!

    Price is not an issue, only Kinect.
