Honest Question: Why is Microsoft not letting reviewers mention the X1 version?

I keep seeing a lot of reviews saying that they played the PS4 version...and the 360 version. Even if the footage looks worse on X1 (not saying it necessarily does, just saying if) wouldn't it still be better to show some of it instead of not mentioning it at all?

GameFoundry, one of the most prominent reviewer on the internet for console comparisons, have shown that Xbox One versions are largely inferior in performance to PS4. I assume after that they went on a lid-closing spree telling the reviewers to not say anything to salvage the situation.

I've seen BF4 footage, but it seems like a lot of reviewers aren't allowed to mention the X1 in there reviews.
Rev3games for example hasn't mentioned the X1 at all.

If you were on the board of the game you were talking about, it would be easier to assume what game or whatever it is you are concerned for...

This is the Xbox One system board, so I assume you are talking about the console.

I too would like to see good footage of the Xbox One console. Not enough sites do this, including Microsoft.

I think you're blowing this out of proportion.

"Largely Inferior" is definitely not what I saw.

They look the same.

Reviewers haven't been able to play multiplayer on PS4 or X1 on public servers, so many are holding off on full reviews until they are able to.

This review thing is hilarious. We did not get reviews for BF4 or AC4 till the day they released yet people are upset we dont have reviews for a system thats 25 days away like their is some huge conspiracy.

Embargoes are common...

Sounds like trying to hide a lot of Xbox One's issues. hoping people will buy the console before they find out about the issues.
