Gamescom opens its doors to the press and public next week, but before the eager gamers get hands-on playing time with the latest and greatest from the gaming industry, we have the small matter of the Microsoft and EA live shows on Sunday and Monday respectively.
As always, we're making it as easy as possible for you to get involved and stay up to date with all of the latest announcements as they happen.

has returned and will be your one-stop shop for everything Gamescom related. You'll be able to access all of the latest Xbox and Windows 10 related news, watch live streams of the Microsft and EA press conferences, and jump into the TA Chatroom to discuss all of the events so far.
We'll be live blogging during the Xbox live show will on Sunday, August 20th at 8pm BST / 9pm CEST / 12pm PDT. To make the experience as interactive as possible, the blog page will include a live stream of the press conference and a TA Chatroom window so that you can watch the events, get our reactions, and give us your feedback all in one place.
