I saw the future of Xbox at Gamescom, and it was in an app

We’re officially entering the post-pandemic era, with conventions and trade shows spinning up again after a few years in hibernation. Gamescom 2022 has been the first event I’ve attended in almost three years, and it was admittedly a bit of a muted affair. Booths and floor presence were far smaller than usual, but the footfall seemed hardly different, with some event days fully sold out. If I don’t catch covid, it’ll be some kind of miracle — but I digress. We’re all here to talk about games!

Gamescom had a huge variety of games of all shapes and sizes, and I got to check out various upcoming Xbox games including Lies of P, Pentiment, The Callisto Protocol, Minecraft Legends, Serial Cleaners, and many more. The first piece of coverage I wanted to present to you all, however, doesn’t actually pertain to any specific game. Yet, I still feel like it was the biggest piece of Xbox and Microsoft news from the show, arguably flying under the radar beneath the glitz and glam of the next wave of shiny games. This pertains to a nifty piece of technology currently rolling out to 2022 Neo QLED Samsung smart TVs, and I got to try it for myself for the very first time at Gamescom.
