Microsoft has revealed the date and time for its Xbox One GamesCom 2014 press conference with a teaser trailer.

On Tuesday August 12 in Cologne, Microsoft will hold a special GamesCom 2014 press conference, detailing the latest on its upcoming titles.

“On Tuesday 12 we bring you the GamesCom 2014 Xbox briefing, live as it happens. So you’ll be there to see and hear all the news.”

We already know that Remedy will demonstrate the first Quantum Break gameplay footage, hopefully revealing how the live action and third-person gameplay will intertwine.

"I'm very excited to tell you that we'll be presenting Quantum Break's time amplified action gameplay for the first time ever at Gamescom”, said Remedy creative direction Sam Lake back in May.

Plus, Microsoft also confirmed that the first footage of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer will be its to show.

“Tune in on August 11 to see Sledgehammer Games present the exclusive live reveal of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer,” said Xbox Live’s Larry Hryb, aka Major Nelson.

You can tune in via Xbox Live, Xbox.com and Windows Phone. Or you can head to the Xbox One Twitch app, where all the GamesCom footage will be streamed live.

Apparently Microsoft are looking to launch a revamped Xbox One before Christmas. A slimmed down version with bigger hard drive according to one of their sales reps. Sshhh keep it secret.

Apparently sales of Xbox one are so poor compared to PS4 they need to do something. A bigger internal drive is a relatively cheap upgrade to implement and looks good on paper. Wouldn't be surprised if you see another price cut. At least to their credit Microsoft are offering regular firmware updates. Both systems would benefit from a few more decent AAA titles to warrant purchase of either.

I didn't say xbox one sales are poor per se but they are compared to Ps4 in two key markets, the UK and USA, where previously Microsoft lead. All the latest sales figures point to Sony dominating the next gen marketplace. Sony have traditionally sold better in mainstream Europe which is probably why Microsoft concentrated on its key retail markets initially. I've got an Xbox one like many of my online friends who previously had an xbox 360. I agree Xbox one is probably a better all round machine currently but both machines are far from perfect. You should see Sony fans complaining on facebook about lack of PS4 system updates. Microsoft dropped the ball by pushing Kinect, releasing a machine with lower specs than the PS4, and concentrating on Tv, tv, tv when anyone people in the UK and elsewhere who have Sky, Virgin TV etc have more than enough tv. Hopefully at the end of the day it is about games and Microsoft have to hope developers can match Sony's perceived graphics advantage. A revamped slimmer sexier device can't do Xbox one any harm.

I am unanimous in that

1TB Xbox one incoming

Tier 2 countries will do very little for Xbox sales. An extra 5-10% a month at most after the launch month. Xbox has almost no presence outside of the 13 countries they already launched in. The global picture is accurate as-is.

Xbox One will never catch up in global sales. PS4's 1st place is secured.

9 PS3, 6 PS4, 5 Vita in the Famitsu top 30 most wanted games (one of those PS3 games doesn't exist though). They're not doing bad in Japan.

Get mental help, forzafailever.
