After we had the chance of seeing both Xbox One and the Playstation 4 with our own eyes at E3, it looks like Gamescom will be place where players will be able to get their hands on the controllers and test the consoles themselves.
This information comes from a german publication on the NeoGAF forums, that says "The Playstation 4 and Xbox One will be playable for visitors". For now this is nothing more than a rumour, but with the release date for both consoles getting closer, Gamescom sounds like the perfect place to test both consoles for the first time.
Added to this, apparently Valve and Take-Two will be present at the event. Both producers usually don't attend at Gamescom events, so we might leave Cologne with new exciting details about their future projects.
Gamescom 2013 will take place in Cologne between the 21st and 25th of August.
