I guess this confirms that Watch Dogs is better in some way on PS4 than X1, either by visuals, or performance, or similar.

LOL, this is just as bad as when they advertised Killzone SF as one of their own exclusives

Wow. Ya know I like MS and still do. I'm not gonna sit here and say sony doesn't use PC footage and use a controller to make it look like PS4 everyone is known for doing it.

It's just the nature of the beast. But if you're not careful you look stupid. Which in this case MS does

Lol, someone may get fired over that mistake. The video is gone as MS caught it. Somebody screwed up though. But yeah, it happens :)_

caught? you act like every company doesn't use other platform to market a game.

#13 Posted by MajesticShea (695 posts) -

This is sad. Shame on Microsoft.

I agree. The video has been removed. Its a story and we'll all comment and shrug. No big deal.

It's not a competition... unless you're a fanboy.

To be honest I never heard about that one.I mean I seen the picture the other user posted.But I don't remember that,also depends when it happened.

Nope not at all, it happens to all companies was my only point, to try and claim damage control or some kind've ownage over stupid advertising/pr mistakes is pure unadulterated fanboyism.

Grasping at straws as per usual.

Why do companies do this? They should know by now us nerds will always catch them out.

#27 Posted by Ninja-Hippo (23426 posts) -


Isn't this just the same footage Ubi Soft put out? If that's all they have to show what else are they gonna show?

Although at the very least I guess crop out the Playstation controls.

They blurred out the buttons now.

#29 Posted by xboxiphoneps3 (2304 posts) -

dam the Xbone is simply just not as capable as the PS4, PS4's more stronger specs, its lighter, thinner dimensions thats extremely portable and with no power brick like the One, the better controllers is basically what seals it up for me

#30 Edited by FinalFighters (1403 posts) -

PS4 the superior console version confirmed.

#31 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

LOL, this is embarrassing. Even MS knows not to use Xbox footage for advertizing.

So many lemming tears will be shed after the embargo. Too bad it will probably be too late for some to cancel their preorders since PS4s are already sold out everywhere.

#32 Posted by John_Matherson (2031 posts) -

Lemmings will damage control the living dogshit out of this one.

#33 Posted by iambatman7986 (394 posts) -

Funny mistake, but a mistake nonetheless. It seems it was taken down quick so no real damage done except more fanboy ammo.

If by damage control you mean providing evidence that Sony have done this too but for an actual XBox exclusive then you are correct

No wonder it looked soooo good. I'm getting that sum'bitch day 1 for PS4. :D

LOL!! We haven't even seen the XB1 game yet. There's no confirmation of anything expect you being a bias fool.

Except I'm not biased. Ok, perhaps the PS4 version was just superior at the time of the video being made? Do you not find it concerning that they took PS4 footage of the game, (not by accident neither, as they tried to blur the button prompts out), and this is as close to X1 footage we have seen?

The games will probably be almost identical at launch, just as they are for BF4 pretty much.

Ruff day lemmings.

#41 Posted by Pray_to_me (2834 posts) -

You'd think it was a simple mistake until you realize they tried to blur out the playstation controls. Lol xbone. So shitty it's shameful.

#42 Edited by ButDuuude (426 posts) -
#43 Posted by bobbetybob (19211 posts) -

So what about all the PC footage used in trailers and videos and then passed of as the experience you'll be getting? Is it OK as long as the button prompts match up or what, I need to know how this works so I can use it to "own" people next time this happens.

#45 Edited by Douevenlift_bro (5039 posts) -

LMAO!

#46 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

LOL they even went as far as blurring the PS4 control prompts. It doesn't get any sadder.

Wow so the dude who constantly pull crap about why sony had not demo kits,the same who say why sony show demo on dev kits rather than console,the same who flamed the PS4 because sony put the console on a place that could not be seen...

Some how doesn't found odd that MS use on their official page,PS4 footage to pass as theirs,worse the part where you can see the prom of the controllers blurred on purpose.

By the way they remove the videos after been catch.

Really posted on neogaf the same happen with NFS which is an EA game,so it is confirmed MS is using PS4 footage of games as theirs,while hiding the true versions,i wonder where is IGN and all the sucker sites been pay to advertise the xbox one if they will report this.

What does that have to do with my post?.

#49 Edited by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

Damn, they are also doing the same thing with NFS?!

LMAO! The meltdowns will be epic once the embargo lifts. For MS to be using PS4 footage for multiplats you know there's something seriously wrong.

Remember earlier in the year when they accidentally had KZ:SF in one of their promo vids...
