"Epic vs Apple" has finally arrived and as Tim Sweeney now famously said we're in for some "fireworks".

On day three of the trial, Microsoft takes center stage as VP of Xbox Business Development Lori Wright talks about walled gardens, difficulties bringing xCloud to the App Store, and just whether or not Xbox and iPhones are competitors.

Wright neither falls for Apple's traps, nor rises above them like a Phoenix...in Virtual Legality.
