E3 2014 and the future of Xbox

A year ago, all Microsoft wanted to talk about was how the Xbox One was the future of entertainment and apps. This year, it's entirely about the games. We saw games of all shapes and sizes, some new and some very old, as Phil Spencer and his team tried to remind fans that the Xbox One is first and foremost a gaming console. There was only one thing notably missing from the presentation: the Kinect. Microsoft's future looks very different from what we saw a year ago - in fact, it looks a lot like its past.
