One of the big Gamescom bombs was the announcement that Rise of the Tomb Raider, the upcoming next installment in the newly-rebooted Tomb Raider series was to be available exclusively on Xbox One and 360 - turns out that this "exclusivity" is only temporary.

In an interview with Eurogamer Phil Spencer, the man in charge of the Xbox division, said that "[He] didn't buy it, [he] doesn't own the franchise". This suggests that the game is in fact a timed exclusive only and may come to other platforms in the future. Spencer did not reveal anything regarding the window of exclusivity of the game, but it's fair to expect Rise of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition or something along those lines to come out not too long after the initial release on Xbox during the 2015 holiday season.

This newsflash hits hard as the Xbox platform lost two of its exclusives as of late - Rise of the Tomb Raider may possibly join Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome in the future.

Early Access has been a part of PC gaming for a while now. Typically, it entails paying for a game that is unfinished for everyone to test it, for the developers to fine tune is as it goes on, and to figure out what could be wrong with the game. That being said, Sledgehammer games has an entirely different interpretation of early access.

So basically we have come to a point where if you buy a limited edition of a game, we may be able to play it a day before its actually supposed to be out. Call of Duty has been notorious for giving preorder bonuses and digital offering to put its most hardcore gamers ahead of the multiplayer game. And now it look's like the bro-dude's will be hitting the court a day before the other n00b's even get there.

Moments before the beginning of Gamescom Amazon slashes the prices of Xbox One bundles with the Kinect 2.0 to aprox. €/£399 in Europe! Should we expect a permanent price cut announced at Gamescom? It's entirely possible - only time will tell. The Xbox One does have some catching up to do, it still lags behind the PS4 and the Wii U in terms of sales - perhaps a price cut like this would make it more competitive.

After years of silence, the following teaser popped up out of nowhere, suggesting that Activision Blizzard, the company which currently owns Sierra, has resurrected the studio. Sierra was a video game company responsible for Space Quest, King's Quest and other wonderful games which laid the foundations of the point-and-click video game genre. Their website used to re-direct to Activision's homepage, but now has been updated and displays the teaser above. Does this mean that we'll see some classic Sierra franchises coming back to life at Gamescom? Only time will tell.
