It's the day after the E3 2013 press conferences, and Microsoft's Phil Harrison is looking remarkably relaxed. The upcoming Xbox One console has been caught in a swirl of controversy over the restriction of pre-owned sales, as well as a requirement for your console to connect to the internet at least once every 24 hours.
Microsoft's main competitor, Sony, took advantage of the controversy by declaring they would not be imposing such policies for the PlayStation 4. The raucous reaction suggested Sony had dealt an early hammer blow to Microsoft in this next-generation console war.
Surely, in the face of such staunch opposition and positive press for its competitor, Microsoft would have to reconsider their policies?
