Vote now for Destructoid's E3 2013 Community Choice Award

You've watched all the press conferences. You've read all the news. Now it's time to sound off with your favorite game of E3! We've reported on dozens of awesome games over the last few days, but only one is destine...

What would you do if you were Microsoft today? photo
What would you do if you were Microsoft today?
by Niero Gonzalez

There is little debate over who "won" E3 this year: In our internal poll following the conference most of our readers chose the PlayStation 4 as the superior contender.

Sony put on a quite a strong show, came $100 under Microsoft's next-gen offering, and reassured gamers that no online or DRM restrictions or used game policies would impede them from enjoying their console. Still, to say that Microsoft has lost the battle would be underestimating one of the most capable companies around. The Xbox One launch is still several months away and there is time for the Microsoft PR machine to get their act together.

Now, imagine if you were in that hot seat tonight in Redmond.  You've got a gazillion dollars to patch that hole in the wall. How would you "fix" this?
