Microsoft's "All-New Xbox Hardware" is Just New Bundles

No Caption Provided Xbox to Announce New Hardware at Gamescom

We've seen some big sales this season, ranging from the Steam Summer Sale to the PlayStation Mid-Year Sale. Considering the fact that it wasn't at E3 2018, Gamescom may just be the flawless place to debut the controller, with hundreds of thousands of visitors in attendance.

Gamescom is coming up in a few weeks, and Microsoft is set to make a splash at the European games show. The most interesting detail in the blog was the promise that "all-new Xbox hardware" would be shown. Instead we can look forward to the new bundles and accessories. That, as you can guess, sparked plenty of speculation about what that new hardware could be. The company launched its accessibility-focused Xbox Adaptive Controller earlier this year.

For more information about Microsoft's 2018 Gamescom presence, check out the official post on the Xbox Wire right here.

If you're unfamiliar, Xbox Game Pass grants users unlimited access to hundreds of Xbox titles via download, including brand new games like Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3 the day they're released.

The live broadcast will be available starting at 4:30 pm CEST on August 21st.

Finally, Microsoft says that a new Xbox-exclusive mode for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds will be playable for the first time at Gamescom, so that'll definitely be something to keep an eye on.

In the Xbox Wire announcement, the company actually confirmed that there will be new console bundles, which isn't really a surprise.
