xbox one e3 2014

Microsoft has posted a new, and lengthy, video that shows what went on behind the scenes at its Xbox One E3 2014 events, including its media briefing that was held on Monday at the Galen Center in Los Angeles.

The video, which runs well over 10 minutes, shows that Microsoft prepares for the E3 2014 press event months in advance, including running through rehearsals back in its Redmond, Washington headquarters long before the Xbox crew sets down in LA to begin building the stage inside the Galen Center.

The clip also shows some of the Xbox One fans who were lucky enough to win passes to attend both the media briefing as well as the E3 show itself at the LA Convention Center later that week. As the video points out, E3 is supposed to be a trade show that's not open to the public, so the fact that some Xbox One gamers were able to attend without any direct connection to the industry is pretty rare.

Microsoft clearly wants to get back in the good graces of its fans who might have felt the company was not paying as much attention to the gaming portion of the Xbox One as they should have. E3 2014 was Microsoft's best attempt yet to show the industry that the Xbox One's mission is now focused on games first.

Now that E3 2014 is over, do you think Microsoft was successful in making its point about turning the Xbox One into a game console as its lead feature?
