Despite its best efforts, Microsoft had the most ground to make up leading to E3. As more news came out about how the system operated, the internet seemed to become an ever expanding hurricane of hate, filled with more disappointment and even more questions. Microsoft's rejection of the status quo and what most gamers see as the traditional gaming experience did not sit well with the audience they were trying to win over. It also didn't help seeing a $499.99 price-tag, only to be upstaged by the PS4's $399.99 price-tag. This may be weird to hear coming from a PlayStation loyalist and PC enthusiast, but the Xbox One may not be as bad as it seems.
