When it comes to hyping the latest hardware, the video game industry doesn't typically opt for simplicity. However, during a presentation to promote the upcoming Xbox One video game console at GameStop Expo in Las Vegas last week, a no-frills approach is exactly what Microsoft employed when confronted with a convention room full of passionate gamers. It's the first stop on an apology tour for Microsoft, which has continued to experience a backlash over connectivity and privacy concerns since unveiling the next-generation device in May.
