Blog sponsored by 26.8.2013 Comments Off on Gamescom 2013: a recap of the week's news

It’s true — we already gave Gamescom 2013 a quick wrap up, but now that the sun has finally set on the show’s public days, it’s time to look back on the past week and sift through the madness. Upon closing the Koelnmesse’s doors, Gamescom announced the show’s final numbers: over the course of five days 340,000 visitors from from 88 countries marched across 140,000 square meters of exhibition space. That’s a 23 percent leap in attendance over the previous year, and it’s hardly a surprise: the event was host to over 400 world premier announcements and gave many attendees their first look at Microsoft and Sony’s next generation consoles. Combined with the more humble announcements that came out of GDC Europe, it turned out to be a pretty fantastic week for gaming. Read on for a breakdown of our time in Cologne, a look at the Gamescom 2013 show floor and a group chat between Joystiq and Engadget editors on the show’s biggest announcements.
