The timer is ticking down the last 37 minutes to the Xbox One media briefing in E3, executives are sweating, and tea is brewing. Get comfy and watch with me to see if Microsoft can do anything to reverse the tide of dissent stemming from gamers after their lukewarm first reveal. DRM? Trading? Prices? Exclusives? Hopefully, all of these questions will be categorically answered.
