Microsoft reveal gamescom press conference, promise “bunch of announcements”

August 17th just got busy. Microsoft have revealed that they’ll be holding a press conference at gamescom next Tuesday, the same day as both EA and Sony.

According to VG247, Microsoft confirmed the presser to them following the distribution of slightly vague “play day” invites this morning. They’re promising “a bunch of announcements” too, which is exciting innit?

Nintendo, meanwhile, will not be holding a conference at the event. And Sega won’t be there at all. Other than that, it’s all go!

The event proper runs from Aug. 18 – 22 in Cologne, Germany. We’ll be there, like news ninjas.
