Sony Modifies Xbox One X Anthem Footage With PS4 Buttons

Anthem was the biggest game to be revealed at this year’s E3. Developed by BioWare and published by EA, the game does not have a release date yet but has gained a quite a lot of fans thanks to the incredible visuals and gameplay demo that was shown.

The game runs on a native 4K resolution on the Xbox One X although that could change later. Microsoft unveiled the console at E3 which offers 6 teraflops of computational power.

The Anthem gameplay demo which was uploaded on the PlayStation YouTube channel seems to be the Xbox One X version but that’s not all. Sony seems to have modified the Anthem Xbox One X footage with PS4 buttons and that’s quite misleading.

You can see in the video below at that specific timestamp where the shoddy work is visible. This is a pretty terrible thing to do since they could have asked EA for PlayStation footage.

    This happened with to Xbox and was a big deal. But Sony not so much.

  • Wei Feng

    This really a big deal?
    Both are checkerboard 4k. And limited 30fps by overclocked netbook CPUs.

    Still more damage on Xbox One X’s claim of the “Uncompromised 4K Experience”
    Still now both both sides get to praise checkerboarding as good enough to be 4K native. Microsoft thinking it’s close enough to be called “true 4k” now and the fans lap it up.
