Microsoft at E3 2014: Behind the eight ball

CNet Senior Editor, Jeff Bakalar writes "Last year I said Microsoft had some explaining to do at its tentpole press conference that kicked off E3 2013. Months before its release, the Xbox One was already knee-deep in a PR nightmare. Between dealing with the "always-on" paranoia and DRM outrage, it seemed the company couldn't do a thing right to help itself.

So while Microsoft has since made good on a number of important fronts, this year its mantra shouldn't veer too far off the same path. For the Xbox One, 2014 and beyond needs to be a time that gamers consider the console as a viable gaming machine, even though it's currently playing catch-up in sales."
