Freak Occurence? Official Xbox One Reveal Highlights Trailer Has "PS4" in URL

"This is honestly a humongous coincidence, and if not, then Sony is actively trolling Microsoft. For the highlights video of the Xbox One, you may not notice anything except the rampant mentions of "TV this" and "sports that". No, the real devil is in the URL link for the video." (PS4, Xbox One)

lulz. I'm fairly certain it's a coincidence, but funny none-the-less.

I'm fairly certain that someone working at youtube intentionally added this in the url.

If it were within the middle somewhere that would be more coincidental but with it blatantly at the end and noticeable I can't believe that no one had their hands in on this.

It's the ultimate stealth troll.

Who knows. The relationship between Sony and Google is a pretty good one and maybe they just wanted to jump on the troll train. We know Google loves stuff like this.

Could be MS trolling Sony, people search PS4 and they get X1.
On the other hand, there's semantic advertising where predefined terms are matched up to keywords in the URL, someone looking to target PS4 focused pages with PS4 related ads will end up advertising to a user interested in X1.

Are you just kidding?
Or you think you are living in a wonderful world?

Being completely serious, (I actually work in online advertising), its semantic advertising, a form of contextual targeting. Look up Grapeshot, ADmantX, and Peer39. The last two go a step further and actually infer meaning out of a webpage to help target ads, you can test it out on the peer39 website.

With regards to my previous comment, I can't imagine there's going to be any PS4 ads anytime too soon though so I'm guessing its more to do with the first point.

Wow! What a sad post. I find it scary how obssesed some of these fanboys are ever since the reveal of xboxone. Everything and anything from the audience clapping to the smell of someones fart has been made an issue since the reveal. Sad pathetic people. They have disected the reveal frame by frame it seems. Whats with the obssesion? For a reveal that wasnt received so well with the "hardcore gamers" they sure love to talk about itso much. Just get your xbox already. Scarry

Caring about this, noticing it at all, is the epitome of childish fanboy behavior.
