Microsoft again uses Battlefield 4 PC footage in Xbox One promo
Microsoft has apparently once again used PC footage of Battlefield 4 and tried to pass it on as actual Xbox One gameplay footage. Microsoft recently sponsored a Battlefield 4 event where players from the US and Europe competed on Xbox One consoles, and the promo video featured Xbox One footage (notice the “Backspace” button in the top right corner — 50+ sec in).
This isn’t the first time Microsoft has done this. During the E3 press conference in June, the Xbox One stage demo crashed and DICE used the PC version as a backup.
Then at the PAX event a few months ago, players thought they were playing the actual Xbox One version of the game. But it was just Xbox One controllers that were hooked up to PCs hidden away.
It’s surprising that Microsoft still uses PC footage of Battlefield 4 for promotional purposes, when we know that the game runs pretty well on Xbox One — check out a recent video here. At least, we think it’s running on the Xbox One…
Battlefield 4 will be an Xbox One launch title when the console is released on November 22 in North America.
