Sony Takes Down Xbox One X Anthem Footage From PlayStation’s YouTube Channel

That brings this bizarre saga to an end.

The Anthem PlayStation video controversy, which erupted a couple of days ago, has been one of the more bizarre blow ups to have happened this year- put simply, the footage that Sony put for Anthem on the PlayStation channel was found to actually be footage of the Xbox One X version (showcased at Microsoft’s E3 conference), with PlayStation button prompts lazily superimposed upon the Xbox ones (which is what gave the gig away).

Whether it was Sony who was behind the doctored footage (which is unlikely), or EA (which is likelier, since publishers submit marketing material to platform holders for distribution via official channels( is unclear- but it became fodder for fanboy wars, as many began to claim that Sony was deliberately misleading customers with footage of the Xbox One X version, trying to pass it off as PS4 footage.

Whoever was responsible, the bad PR, coupled with the fact that the footage was misleading, has apparently made Sony take down the video in question- it is now no longer on the PlayStation channel. Presumably, a video of a proper PS4 build may go up at some time. But you can be sure that Bioware, EA, and Sony will triple check to make sure it actually is PS4 footage this time around.
