After trying to sell off PS4 footage of Watchdogs back in August

They're now doing something similar with Call of Duty:

Why is this not actual xbox one footage?

Things happen? There was a time when Sony used Forza screens(or was it PGR)instead of Gran Turismo.

Not sure how Sony using Forza footage makes this alright.

Both cases are misleading to the consumer.

I think he meant if your going to bash one company for doing it at least bash the other company for doing the same instead of just beating the same dead horse, at least that's what I got from it.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4
Because I can buy both.

I'm saying things get screwed up and it isn't always companies trying to mislead people. You seriously think Sony meant to show Forza screens instead? That was a big mistake and it'd be crazy if they did that on purpose. Basically stop looking for reasons to hate.

Atari Jaguar did this back in 1942 remember?

Can just be an actual mistake. Maybe unlikely in this case but you cant guarantee its not.

So I'm supposed to go back in time and bash Sony on a different board?
Seems like a rather dumb argument.

Regardless, both are misleading to consumers.

Very true, but this is the second time it's happened.

I'm not "looking for reasons to hate", there are plenty of those readily available.
I'm just pointing out the misleading trailer they put on their official youtube page.

They removed the Watchdogs video, wonder if they'll remove this one as well.

They need to assurance (even if it's years-old assurance) that MS isn't alone in what they do.

But I think the fact that we've seen this done already at least 3 times for the X1...well that is inexcusable.
