Sony Germany Taunts Microsoft Over Call of Duty's Resolution on Social Media, Then Deletes it All

The news that Call of Duty: Ghosts will run at 1080p native on PS4 and 720p upscaled on Xbox One created some rather salty responses. Apparently one of said response came directly from the German branch of Sony, that then decided to try and delete every trace of it. Of course it didn't work.

Still more classy than Microsoft

Enemy1336d ago

All Sony did was release a fact on Twitter. I'm not even sure why they deleted it.

Nate-Dog1336d ago

Neither of them were classy.

mewhy321336d ago

Sony didn't do anything wrong. All they did was state a fact. Why take it down?

They advertize the ability of their system. Nowhere do they write 'only on PlayStation' or 'unlike on X-Box'. There is no taunting to be found except in the minds of those who are hurt by their choice in console. Just because a competitor has a weaker product you are not allowed to advertize your own product. That'S just weird thinking.

If you guys bothered to look at what the "taunting" was, you'd realize that it wasn't taunting and that you had just been baited into giving a flamebait article a hit.

+1 trolling for Lalanana

1. To reproach in a mocking, insulting, or contemptuous manner.
2. A scornful remark or tirade; a jeer.
.....definitely not a taunt.

If you want to complain about taunting, go wet your pants with the other babies trying to make it a touchdown-denial offense in the NFL.

mikeslemonade1336d ago

It's not taunting. At most it's a cheap shot because Sony did conveniently put that up right after the controversial reveal. The ability to share and play used games antics were more considered a taunt.

MazzingerZ1336d ago

Build it and they will come:)

corvusmd1336d ago

Most immature statement ever

badz1491336d ago

yeah, maybe the timing makes it like a trolling statement (and I guess they had the very intention too, LOL. who can blame them, right? chest beating is in human nature) but if you're on the fence of neutrality, everything they stated over there is PURE HARD FACT. not a single mention of the competition or anything offensive. stating fact =/= not classy


being butthurt over this = not classy!

it's not Sony's fault, CoD is 720p on the Xbone! it's like you got 100% or A+ in class and when you're about to scream in joy and celebrate, others are cry foul because you're kinda being 'insensitive' to those who failed! WTF? it's not my fault they sucked!!

FamilyGuy1336d ago (Edited 1336d ago )

Wtf, this isn't even a taunt, it's just them advertising the game. Now if they tweeted this to a MS employee that would be taunting. I kinda hope Yosh picks up the image and post it himself.

Even if it was a taunt it's not like Sony didn't make a full on youtube video showing "how to share your games". I have no idea why they would even take this down.

JBallerX1336d ago

LOL @ all of the people saying this is just a fact. It's interesting when the tables are turned...

The comments in this article show the bias of this site, and it really is annoying. I will eventually own both systems, but this ridiculous and very odd arguing before the consoles are even released, is stupid.

Not classy at all, but then again neither is your trolling. Calling out someone else's less than classy behavior is more effective if you have a little class of your own.

Edit - lol Having seen what they tweeted, there was nothing wrong with that at all. They are indeed classy.

MGS_fanatico_1336d ago

Hey, it's not bragging if you can back it up... :)

Sitdown1336d ago

Pretty sure you don't know what bragging means.

miyamoto1336d ago

The truth really hurts.

B-radical1336d ago

Hahah i hope MS strike back some how be good too see them do advertising wars......every console fanboy could enjoy!

Be like watching 2 kids fight for a fathers attention

scott1821336d ago

I agree, releasing facts to inform and not withholding information from the consumer is classy. Other companies should try it.

kayoss1336d ago

Is it in 1080P? if not then i dont want to see it.

Abriael1336d ago

Lol i had totally forgot about that one.


Man, look at that comment session... N4G was a different place 6 or 7 years ago, yet the same kind of nonsense today.

torchic1336d ago (Edited 1336d ago )

those comments!

wow ahahaha! man I can't believe how much the PS3 got trolled

BABY-JEDI1336d ago

I'm expecting Sony to hire that same boat & drive it up & down the Thames advertising the CoD resolution & frame rate. Just for memory sake.
; P

nosferatuzodd1336d ago

yep i forgot how Microsoft playing dirty.. xbox fanboys complaining about being classy like Microsoft ever bin classy, when you're fighting a devil be a devil Microsoft stole everything from rival companies they never yet do anything original ever, the watch what apple did and then build the same thing they watch what IBM did and build the same thing they watch what Nintendo did and try the same thing when does Microsoft ever come with a product of their own never

Sorry but that's not taunting Microsoft. Its just the facts. If that's taunting then Microsoft was Taunting when they say get the DLC on Xbox first on their commercials. The only difference is Sony took it down MS still airs the commercial.

stevej3361336d ago

If them advertising the game is 1080p on ps4 is fine then whats the difference if ms says in their commercials that they get the dlc first if its both true? Some people only see things the way they want. Its sad

MGS_fanatico_1336d ago

"Some people only see things the way they want. Its sad"
My sides... Oh, the irony! xD

u-bEttA-rUn1336d ago

That made me throw milk everywhere lmao

OMFG loooool, thanks for that, I'm crying over here.

Brix901336d ago

Definitely one of the funniest gifs I've seen lol

Benchm4rk1336d ago

As someone who has an X1 pre ordered I have to say that's one of the funniest things I've ever seen :-)

at-least they wernt lying :3

dale_denton1336d ago

MS would have kept that post up if sony was running 720p under the hood. so don't talk about who's classy or not lol

TheTwelve1336d ago

Nah, it's classy to take it down. Beating someone up and then just walking away is the highest level of cool.

nosferatuzodd1336d ago (Edited 1336d ago )

lol i love it i hate Microsoft i have nothing against the xbox one i still think its a good system but i really hate greedy money grubbing pirate microshaft and before everyone say fanboy no its deeper than that me and windows and gears of war have a terrible history

Anon19741336d ago

How on earth is this a taunt? Someone want to explain that to me? Is it also a "taunt" if Activision puts on the COD PS4 packaging that it supports 1080p?

This is just ridiculous.

insomnium21336d ago (Edited 1336d ago )

Now the xbox-fans can say that "see these companies are all alike, didn't you see the headline?". I'm too tired to even get riled up about this.

I'll just leave this video here:

Start at 11:27 mark to get my opinion short and sweet.

MynextGen1336d ago

Sony fanboys are hypocrites and childish

2pacalypsenow1336d ago

yes because xbox fanboys are gentleman and mature

buynit1336d ago

Yes hypocrites they are...

dale_denton1336d ago

says the guy with the xbone avatar lmao

Benchm4rk1336d ago

Correction....ALL fanboys are hypocrites and childish

@lalanana......I guess dodging questions and double talking is considered classy these days.

3-4-51336d ago

This isn't even bad...making way too much out of this.

It's not like they said " you can't just flip a switch" ....and then later tell us they've flipped the switch.

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1336d ago

You need to go outside lalana ...Badly

PFFT1336d ago

You should take your own advice.

bromtown1336d ago

F*** classy! It's true! Why not big up your products? "Oh, I can't say how good this game is because a Microsoft fanboy on the internet might cry"

No. This classy lark does my head in, they're 2 plastic boxes that play videogames. Does it even matter?

The less classy the better, more interesting that way.

T21336d ago

No class would be just stating "xbone is a piece of sht"
They did nothing even remotely that bad

UnHoly_One1336d ago

At least MS is going to allow us to play mp3's on their console.

That's more than I can say for one greedy company I know.

Bathyj1336d ago

If you were on a ladder and I was stand beneath you I would be drowned in irony.

MysticStrummer1336d ago

Which company is hiding more apps behind a paywall and charging more to get past it?

UnHoly_One1336d ago

Say "paywall" a few more times and maybe somebody will care.

Anybody owning either console is going to pay for the service that goes with it. It doesn't really matter.

But please, direct me to the subscription I can pay for that will let me listen to my own music on my ps4.

Oh there isn't one?? Yeah that's what I thought.

Redempteur1336d ago

"At least MS is going to allow us to play mp3's on their console. "

not really.

You should really check your facts.

"But please, direct me to the subscription I can pay for that will let me listen to my own music on my ps4. "
you wait for the patch that will enable it , just like on xbone ?

Trolls like you are quick to forget that the ps3 also launched with a barren os and added feature after features over the months.

MasterCornholio1336d ago

Well at least Sony allows us to play games right out of the box unlike Microsoft with the Xbox One.

Nexus 7 2013

Angeljuice1336d ago

" At least MS is going to allow us to play mp3's on their console."

At least Sony is going to allow us to play next-gen games on their next-gen console.
