The Dust has settled somewhat. Microsoft seems to have survived from the Self Inflicting Injuries (Didn't help that Sony and Media made matters worse). They have since reversed DRM policies (which i personally favored), Sticking by Kinect (Still taking a pounding for it), sticking by it's price point (still taking a pounding for it), and sticking with cloud (though being laughed at the world over).
All of the above would of caved most companies, and caused them to give up on the further development of a console. Microsoft though stayed the course (I commend them for that for the most part) (Wish they would of stuck with the original plan). Despite being in critical condition MS remains the headliner in the console war, rather the headlines be good or bad. Now is a best time to filter out all the negatives about the Xbox One and start the positives of it all.
Microsoft should go on advertising BLITZ starting now, and keep it coming all the way through release date and Christmas time. The should start on the May 20th, 2013 day (a day before the reveal) where the Xbox name was high and mighty. And show advertisements starting with the reveal, and all the other criticisms afterwards. Let the negative commercials have their own spot as well (even show the negative statements posted by the media). Show E3, the 180 anything and everything about the Xbox One that was revealed so far.
In between all of that show something new, no matter how petty it may seem. Show a commercial on how the Cloud will enhance games. Show why Kinect is worth it (from a games, gesture, and voice perspective.) Now is not the time to be quiet Microsoft, now is to scream and let EVERYONE know that you are still here. Let the ones who kicked you while you were down, know that despite it all there will be ONE box to rule them all...
Let the "So called loyalist" know that, despite them turning their backs on you, Xbox One will be here waiting with open arms (I know MS arms are open to anyone with $$$ to buy one, lol)
So what the console doesn't come out until November, now is the time to fight back.
