Where: Cologne, Germany

When: 21-25 August 2013

What: Playing second fiddle to LA's E3 (in terms of prestige), Gamescom is still a hugely important gaming expo and one that always has a few monster titles on show for the first time. In terms of size it actually trumps its California rival - over 275,000 visitors and 600 exhibitors from 40 countries made Gamescom 2012 the largest games trade fair in the world.

Likely launches: Fingers crossed, they'll be a new Xbox announced at E3 a couple of months before so here's hoping for a barrage of new eighth-generation titles. Did someone say Halo 720?
