Human error is more common than human malice.

In this case, someone at MS probably just didn't realize it was a Sony video.

These videos are all probably provided by publishers as kind of a promotional thing for the game itself, not the game on a specific platform. I don't really see anything wrong with it. If the buttons were massive and integral to the demonstration video, then yeah, but I don't see this being anything major.

This specifically wasn't even made for or by Microsoft. It's just the gameplay series Ubisoft made and published themselves. Microsoft just put it up on their channel too.

at this point i dont even trust those forza videos they have, probably running on a ps4

edit: put on your sarcasm detectors there. also its weird that they didnt care about youtube comments discussing the messup 2 months ago but when neogaf picks up on it they decide to remove the video.

@levio: So they censored it and uploaded it as their own? That's malicious.

The xbox version couldn't look so much worse that it would really be worth it for Microsoft to pass the PS4 version off as the xbox version. I have to imagine this does way more damage than a mildly less good-looking video.

But the thing is Microsoft didn't do anything. They posted a video that Ubisoft sent to the gaming press. It's the gameplay series video that Ubisoft made.

They've stuffed up like that before when Microsoft's Dutch Facebook page posted images for XBOne games but one of the screenshots was for Killzone: Shadow Fall.

I hear the X-Box 3 is coming with a packed in shovel to dig out of all the shit they keep burying ontop of it.

@mildmolasses: I think the fact that the embargo is up on a much later date than the PS4 versions of the games is pretty suspect as to their confidence of how it's going to be reviewed but I agree with your point to just wait for the embargo to be up.

I'd bet most likely, a) They didn't know the PS4 embargo date when they set their embargo, and b) as the guys mentioned on the Bombcast this week, the November 12 embargo seems very deliberately set to ensure that there's a whole bunch of Xbox One news hitting right before the PS4 launch.

If that was the reason behind it, oh boy, how dumb. That is a little late in the game. Who is going to change their mind three days before a launch? And you will be able to pickup most PS4 games on the 12th also. So if that was their intent, to try and flood the market with xbo stuff, it was for naught. It wont affect anyone at that point.

Nobody is going to change their mind three days before a launch, but at the same time, I'd guess that hardly anyone is going to change their mind two weeks before a launch either, unless things were an ungodly shit show, so I don't think putting the reviews out sooner would've done anything for them.

It's about getting the Xbox One name out there when Sony's trying to get the Playstation 4 name out there. It's more about the people who are still on the fence, and trying to get them to wait that extra week. Will it work? Probably not to any significant degree, but it does make sense.
