Xbox UK Facebook page advertises PlayStation exclusive again

Game-Smack Ireland: Once again the Xbox UK page has fallen prey to not knowing the competition's game. First it was dropping images of Killzone Shadow Fall in with a bunch of other screenshots but this time the advertising space all goes to the PlayStation 3 and their exclusive The Last of Us.

They're not advertising anything. They're just showing a picture of a cosplayer at the Xbox booth that's dressed as a Clicker. I really don't see the problem here.

HammadTheBeast1734d ago

Well, showing someone dressed up as Master Chief on Sony's Facebook wouldn't exactly be promoting their brand lol.

LaChance1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

Master Chief is an international icon.

That "thing" is ... well pretty much nothing in pop culture so nope MS isnt advertising sh!t with that.

Dumbest analogy ever. Never been a bright bunch anyway.

UltimateMaster1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

Spybox Station!
I was just looking at the other comments on that website.

UltimateMaster1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

PS4 has the best games.
Xbox claims they have the best games, then shows off the PlayStation Exclusive Games.

Well, Thanks!
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

LaChance1734d ago


Since you dont seem to understand english I'll explain it for you.

Pop culture does not refer to pop music. Games like COD and GTA5 for instance are what you can call "pop culture" by their popularity. Same goes for things like the iPhone, Beats by Dre, Jay Z etc etc.

Hope its a lot clearer for you now.

JokesOnYou1734d ago

Read the headline, thought "damm micro is stupid", gave the site a hit, thought "damm this site is stupid".

Skips1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

Master Chief an "international icon"?

lmfao!!! ... lol

Guess you consider Soap or Captain Price one as well. XD

Well known franchise =/= Well known character

Ask anybody on the street, and they'd probably think he's just any other "Space Marine" in futuristic armor. But if this really bothers you so much, then replace Master Chief with a nameless Spartan or a random alien from the Halo universe. lol

If Sony posted a pic on their facebook page of one of them, it'd still be pretty weird...

scofios1734d ago

Master Chief is an international icon.
North America is not international did you know that.
if you want an international icon take Mario, pac man or Sonic.

I believe everyone in that microsoft office knows nothing about games.
Can't call em gamers if all they like to do is knock jokes towards sony. (any gamer would know, it was sony that changed gaming with the ps2, got nothing but show respect) when i hear games from third party like splinter cell, or titan fall going xbox exclusive. I know money was the cause.
them MS employees is about trying to enter a market they know a little knowledge about and spend $ to get cash.
we seen zune, tablets, windows phone, hotmail, bing.
their only major success was innovating such as windows.
I respect 360 as they innovated online to consoles, but they took this xbox live thing a little far making it to just something that you have to pay for. making an offline 360 pointless unless you play offline & mod.

ShinMaster1734d ago

They even said it's from the Xbox booth... LOL

Clickers are very recognizable now with so many TLoU copies selling. Not nearly as much as master chief, but if you play games at all you have probably seen something about clickers a few times on sites and articles...

wishingW3L1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

I'm a Sony fan and I always buy PlaySation but you Sony fanboys really need to lower that fanboyism quite a bit. You guys are just plain silly.

B-radical1734d ago

Yeah but master chief is an icobn a clicker isnt

LonDonE1734d ago

microsoft didnt innovate with online on consoles, sega done that yonks ago with the dreamcast

But why would they choose to do that? That's like if Sony showed someone dressed as Princess Peach at their booth. Just why?

Ripsta7th1734d ago

They took pics of people dressed up at the convention and that one was a good one

porkChop1734d ago

Because it's a convention with lots of cosplayers? Just because the cosplay is from a Playstation game doesn't mean the Xbox guys can't like it or post it on Facebook for people to see.

corvusmd1734d ago

True...they're really reaching here...just can't stop trying I guess

StoutBEER1734d ago

Yea what the hell? Im an Xbox fan and am gettin an X1 first. But TLOU had me wanting to get a PS3. And I will most likely get a PS4 when TLOU 2 is announced. This is what i hate, when people are a fan of a console they dont think they can like other console/PC games. Why?
PS fans on Xbox vids bashin DR3, Titanfall when they look awesome. I go on PS vids to watch Killzone cause it looks gorgeous, and state so. Yet I see people saying Xbox sucks on the Killzone vid? Talk about the fuckin games. How are people interested in a series going to learn anything about it if all they see is "Xbox sucks. PS4 FTW!" Just sayin was interested in Killzone at first, but its kinda dyin down cause all i see is bitching and no excitement for the game. Thats why im still interested in TLOU cause there is no one bitchin in the comments. Just actually talkin about the damn game!

TheOneEyedHound1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

I don't think D3 looks awesome. titanfall looks fun but not awesome to me, Titanfall looks like Call of Duty with Timed Jet-Packs and insted of killstreaks a badass robot. You can look it up you need points to get a robot.

Edit: not saying that I don't want to play titanfall, but the trolling starts when people like you say "Titanfall is Awesome!!" Like it is no matter what, then somebody that disagrees will just simply tell you why it's not.

The reason you don't see much people talking bad about The Last of Us is because it doesn't look generic and it's already highly praise, that Xbots can't point out a bad thing without looking foolish.

I can say "Titanfall looks like Call of Duty with Timed Jet-Packs and instead of killstreaks a badass robot. You can look it up you need points to get a robot" because what I see it is, Titanfall is an MMO I don't see any major change graphically and gameplay wise to not to bash it when idiots like you say it's great,awesome,the best, the reason to get an xbox.

FamilyGuy1734d ago

"PS fans on Xbox vids bashin DR3, Titanfall when they look awesome"

Show me a PS fan bashing Titanfall. We're all gamers here and the only thing I've seen people say is that it's probably a timed exclusive or that they'll get it on pc. Every comment I've seen has agreed that that game looks fun/cool/must have.

On the topic of killzone, fan boys go in every single topic about it claiming it looks boring or some other non-sense. There are PS fans that boast about it comparing it to other title but that's WITHIN killzones article and they're just being enthusiastic in many cases.

The comparison videos just brought more fans and fanboys out.

On topic:
this is relevant in showing how out of touch with games MSs PR is. You never see sony accidentally, full-on or even slight advertising the competitions exclusives.

sic_chops1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

@stout TLOU was a really great game. I hope you find a way to play it by either buying or borrowing a friends ps3.

StoutBEER1734d ago

I actually just looked at the picture. Holy shit that makes me cringe, good job girl. I'd still hit it.

ado9081734d ago

There would be not enough face palms in this world to save you from what you just said right now.

porkChop1734d ago

Oh, really? And why is that? I said they're not advertising anything, and guess what? They're not. It's a gaming convention with tons of cosplayers. They posted a cosplay of TLoU, so what? Why does that matter? Seriously, you guys are being ridiculous and trying to turn this into something it clearly isn't.

Keregan1734d ago

it's only a female clicker that wish she could be part of MS next gen :P

ado9081734d ago

An exclusive to the PS3 and Sony is cosplaying in Microsoft's booth that is what's wrong. You have other's telling you the exact same thing it's ridiculous to say that you don't know what the problem is. That is like Microsoft taking Zelda or Donkey Kong and cosplaying it in their booth's.

porkChop1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

"That is like Microsoft taking Zelda or Donkey Kong and cosplaying it in their booth's."

Microsoft isn't the one cosplaying. What are you talking about? This is a fan dressed up in TLoU cosplay. What, are you suggesting TLoU fans/cosplayers shouldn't be allowed in Microsoft's booth?

They also posted a picture of an AC cosplay. This isn't anything new. At every convention devs/pubs post great cosplay whether it's from their game or not. You guys are just digging for a way to turn this into a bad thing. It's pathetic.

ado9081734d ago

"They're just showing a picture of a cosplayer at the Xbox booth that's dressed as a Clicker" I was referring to this not microsoft my bad the xbox booth.

XisThatKid1734d ago

This is late as all hell. This was on here around when X1 was announced

goddamn she is just dressed like a clicker

NaughtyGods1734d ago

And if someone is dressed up like Master Chief and Sony would promote it, you would say the same too, right?

LaChance1734d ago

So ... a clicker is as popular as Master Chief ? The fck Sony fanboys been smoking ?!

Worst analogy ever.

dantesparda1734d ago

stop getting so mad, la chance, now one has been "smoking" anything, peoeple are just trying to make a point

KwietStorm1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )


You didn't understand the analogy. That doesn't make it the worst anything. And how you got fanboy anything out of that, is just, amazing, but unsurprising.

Moncole1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )


Fanboys dont smoke anything, they are just stupid because they stay to one company and cant accept great games on other systems.

Massenwithme1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

@LaChance Are you completely stupid? If you see a clicker you immediatly think of TLOU. The same with Master Chief. They are brand marks. Does it make a difference if Sony shows a alien enemy that is clearly from Halo? No. Its about the prinicple and not how popular it is. No more weed for you. Never heard something more stupid. You must be 10 years old.

JokesOnYou1734d ago

lol, well Master Chief is a well known icon. Just looking at that pic doesn't make me think of TLOU. Slow news day I guess.

mcgrottys1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

a better analogy would be comparing the clicker to a flood unit. Why? because I'm going to take a guess that if an average person (one who may or may not have played either game) sees two people cosplaying as either a flood or a clicker from a distance then they would probably just think they are both zombies (or maybe even aliens) but they probably wouldn't say a clicker or flood off the bat.

In fact I'm sure if someone hasn't played one of the games they would ask which game they are from because I didn't see clickers or flood plastered on their game covers, around the city or on T.V. when either last of us of halo's 1/2/3 came out.

If MS had a photo of someone cosplaying as Joel or Ellie then yes the master chief analogy would have worked.

It looks as if the people running the booth were clueless as to what she was dressed as hahaha.

JackStraw1734d ago

clearly not seeing as they made the "no brainer" comment. you sort of have to know what a clicker is to even understand that. it's not like you can tell that part of a clicker is their brain.

grailly1734d ago

They were just thinking "zombie" imo

JackStraw1734d ago (Edited 1734d ago )

which is how A LOT of people view the infected. even many tlou fans. your point?
