It was also now confirmed that Microsoft is not planning to steam the event at Gamescom, but instead will be uploading footage from the event to Xbox Wire. The decision not to steam the event was made because Microsoft believes this is the best way to get the information out to those that want to see it.
While there have been a number of rumors on what Microsoft might be showing, it does not seem that there is any consensus on what Microsoft might have up their sleeve this time around. This press conference is pivotal for Microsoft to help get their revised message out and we think that they are going to have to do a much better time this time around. We will have to wait and see how it shakes out, but there is no question that the company could use a solid victory.
