Anthem PS4 Teaser Trailer Has Xbox One Button Prompts

EA seems to have goofed with its PS4 teaser trailer.

Posted By | On 03rd, Jul. 2017 Under News

Bioware’s Anthem looked pretty cool when showcased at Microsoft’s E3 2017 presser and EA has confirmed that the game was running in real-time on an Xbox One X (with Digital Foundry verifying that the demo was running at 2160p checkerboarding). The same footage is now available on PlayStation’s official channel though there’s a problem.

The button prompts may indicate that this the PS4 version (or even PS4 Pro) but eagle-eyed NeoGAF user EvB discovered that the DualShock button prompts have actually been overlaid on top of the Xbox One button prompts. If you observe just a few frames from this point, the transition will slightly show the Xbox One button prompts underneath before fading to the DualShock prompts. The above image captured by EvB highlights this better.

Though it’s common practice for publishers to share footage for a game to multiple channels, especially for different platform holders, the problem here is that the Anthem footage is from the Xbox One X version. Or at least that’s what it seems like. This appears to be a mistake on the part of Electronic Arts rather than Sony.

What are your thoughts on this tomfoolery? Let us know in the comments below.

    That’s funny as heck, hope nobody believes that was ps4 footage.

  • Luke Skywalker

    What are my thoughts? Microsoft got berated and ridiculed years ago. Now some of the same ones to call Microsoft dishonest then are some of the same ones giving Sony a pass now even saying it’s EA’s fault.

      How is Sony even able to show Anthem on their channel? I’ve not seen any BattleFront 2 footage on Xbox channel yet….

    Sony seems to have goofed…fixed that for ya. Good try tho. Classless liars. It won’t look like that on the pro without 4k textures and on it.

      Notice no comment from “Revolver ocelot” AKA “MrXrat” etc etc.

    • Ocelot forgot his meds

      He is spread very thin lately damage controlling. Poor mental case trapped in jail of pony fanboyism insanity.

    • Mr Xrat

      I love how retarded Xgimps think publishers don’t make their own trailers!

  • Poseidon team

    PS4 fans should enjoy this trailer and think that Anthem will run as good as the Xbox One X before downgrade hammer smashes their hopes into tears.

    Sony! With fake 4k and fake gameplay… #4thePlayers

    • Fweds

      Notice how the sub heading try’s to make out it’s EAs fault !!

      Using words like Seems and appears.

    • Mr Xrat

      It’s EA’s game, r*tard.

    • Fweds

      It doesn’t mean EA put the Sony control overlay on though does it M*ron.

    My question is this, how is Sony even able to show Anthem on their channel when MS has the marketing rights? But I don’t see Xbox channel showing Battlefront 2?

  • greatnessIsaLIE

    Damn for a second I was almost impressed by the ps4 pro. Then the truth came out.

  • Mr Xrat

    Xgimps in hardcore denial that EA’s trailer of EA’s game (yes, this is EA’s responsibility) means they don’t think their Destiny clone is going to look especially different on other platforms.

    $499 plus tax please! Xgimps are the eternal cancer. 🙂

    Having a melt down again ocelot?

    • Mr Xrat

      Only meltdown here is yours, crawling back onto the Internet after that awful E3 “showcasing” that pathetic upgrade and seeing multiple identities. 🙂

    • efnet

      What does e3 has to do with anything?
      Sheesh! You need help or you need to get laid ASAP! son, no one in their right mind would be pouring so much effort into something this pointless.
      Fix your life lil guy lol

  • efnet

    Revolver ocelot seems to be off his rocker again, i do admire his dedication to his many names and the constant upvoting he does for himself with a slew of other names he created …..
    Like can you imagine how much time one would have to spend to sit on sites for hours apon hours speaking over 200 comments a day on both names?
    Lol he takes the word “loser” to a whole new level

  • efnet

    This is true lol
