Gamescom 2017, known as “The Heart of Gaming”, wrapped up in Cologne, Germany on August 26th.   The convention showcases all aspects of the gaming industry including platforms like console, mobile, online and PC gaming, along with virtual reality and e-sports.  The convention was huge and the official statistics provided by Gamescom prove it.  The document contains three pages full of stats from the event but I pulled some quick highlights.
