If it had anything of Scarlett worth showing, I suspect they'd have done so at last month's E3.

Major Nelson actually made headlines this afternoon by stating that Microsoft would show off "all-new Xbox hardware and accessories" during a special episode of Inside Xbox during Gamescom.

Less than a year after launching the Xbox One X, Microsoft is already teasing more new hardware. But don't get your hopes up for a massive console reveal just yet.

The Xbox booth will feature 25 games you can play if you're attending the event. As soon as Microsoft realised people thought they meant a new console they changed the wording to "new Xbox One bundles and accessories".

Williams married businessman Alexis Ohanian last November and he paid tribute to her achievements in London. When the interviewer referred to her as a supermom, Williams replied that she was "just me".


The new Xbox is in line for a shock reveal at the Gamescom event in August. It's unlikely to be a successor to the Xbox One, but it could well be a new model following the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X.

But wait. There's more: There is a telling difference between the Microsoft announcement blog post and the one that appears on the Xbox blog post. We'll just have to tune in to the live show at 4:30 PM CEST on Tuesday, August 21 to find out.

Apart from that, Microsoft will have the annual Xbox FanFest on Thursday, August 23. Hopefully Microsoft will announce the new controller and confirm the existence of the Fable reboot at Gamescom. After all, gamers love surprise announcements, and there are a ton of games Xbox could potentially demo at the show, plus rumored features like mod support.

As well as new hardware, MS is promising a fresh look at new titles.
