Microsoft Gamescom - Possibly more free games / Project Scorpio

Found 19th Aug 2017
Morning guys. I've just been reading that Microsoft could possibly be giving away more content during their Gamescom conference tomorrow (8pm) via their Mixer channel.

It's not clear yet if it will work in the same way it did during their E3 where they gave away Rare Replay amongst other things, but I just thought I'd chuck it up a heads up

Major Nelson has said -

"What’s more, you can sign in to your Microsoft account at Mixer.com and you’ll be in with a chance of winning lots of great prizes and be able to ask questions to the teams behind your favorite games. We’re excited to show you what we’ve been up to since E3, so be sure to tune in!"

As a heads up for anybody interested in the Xbox One X, the Day One Edition has been leaked as Project Scorpio. Want!

"These Project Scorpio editions include a 1TB hard drive and feature the name "Project Scorpio" on both the console and controller. There's a few other minor cosmetic differences too, like the controller has all black buttons and the console has a slightly different woven texture than the vanilla Xbox One X."

Yeah, UK time. Any of the Mixer methods should be fine. Xbox, App, browser etc..

I'm betting the surprise announcement is Original Xbox backward compatibility (start date).

Looking forward to the Xbox1X and news from the show.

Quite possibly, although I'd love them to announce Age of Empires for XB1. It's doubtful, but I can hope

I like age of empires and an X1 version would be interesting
Just waiting for them to confirm a price a release date, not that I'm buying a xbox one x no no. I'm waiting for the price to drop so I can pick up a elite console as its still retailing for £215

Smashing! I will just wait for the prices of the older generation console to drop.
I can't think of anything I need less than an xbox box one x....

Will be pre ordering tomorrow.

The channel is just called "Xbox" and should load by default. It's currently showing a countdown timer.
They just announced what the mixpot includes. It's just some boring DLC for games, no standalone games, disappointed.
Guess DLC for F2P games makes sense.

Although I shall not be touching any of it.

Edit: 40,000 watchers -> 8,000 watchers after the announcement of the freebies

Nothing has been confirmed yet. So don't worry you didn't miss anything
I missed this thread completely! Glad the free stuff wasn't mind blowing.

Was there any mention of BC stuff? they have been adding a nice amount recently but still so many games id like them to add.

Also really hoping when the launch OG XB games they go big, I have a nice list of games from there I would really like adding.
