Sony saw Microsoft's early blunders this year as an opportunity, and it jumped on the chance to make the PS4 look better than the Xbox One by marketing it to hardcore gamers and being clear about certain policies. That's how the company won E3, and to many gamers won the next-gen console battle months before either console had even launched.
Just think back to Sony's E3 press conference, at which it announced that the PS4 would play used games, that gamers could share with each other, and that the console would not feature any inherent DRM. We've never heard so much applause at a press conference before, but in that moment the PS4 got a standing ovation.
