This is as much of MS fault as Ubisoft, there is no excuse for this.
Kingthrash360  +   409d ago
lol man this is so one sided right now...is ms cursed? i mean dam i dont know what to think about ms and x1 anymore...anythings possible with them.
so many "mistakes" and typo's and getting caught in lies...i think they are targeting the casuals who dont know any better about things like native/upscaled or paywalls or in this case button layouts...i cant say they did it on purpose or if its even their fault....but whats bad is i cant say didn't either.

The blame game has begun! But what makes this a b***s*** response, if it were "the wrong feed that were sent" then why try to block out the buttons? Simply put, it was a total lie and they were caught!
blitz0623  +   409d ago
Weren't the button labels being "blocked" on the screen up until that split second where it showed the PS controls? That already means MS was aware of it and they tried to hide it and got caught.
pixelsword  +   409d ago
There is no "mix-up" if the buttons were blocked; that shows a clear intent to deceive; why else would Ubisoft cover up PS3 buttons for a PS3 video?

What do these people take us for, morons?

It's really not that big of a deal to be honest. I'm not defending them, hell I'm not even getting an Xbox One. Seriously though, some of you are acting as if someone killed your dog and you can't believe how this happened.

First off. People make mistakes. It happens. Secondly, why on earth would MS do this on purpose will that the bad PR they've been getting. Seriously. Think about it. Do you think MS would upload PS4 footage and think out of the MILLIONS watching, that not one person would see the button prompts? Come on now.

MS has pulled shit in the past, but they've always tried to be sneaky about it. Like the E3 Kinect Star Wars presentation. But uploading PS4 footage on purpose? Gimmie a break.

guitarded77  +   409d ago
Some of it is MS making bad choices (initial XBOX One policies). Some of it is just dumb mistakes (probably the situation with the video)...

But some of it could be mistakes from outside of MS (3rd party workers/contractors).

Remember when MS had Killzone on their website as an XBOX One exclusive... don't remember which region it was. But that was just stupid.

I'm inclined to think (doesn't mean it's true) that MS may plant some of these stupid mistakes for more free exposure. "There's no such thing as bad press" the saying goes, and by making simple "mistakes", it just gets more people talking about XBOX One, with no real damage to the console's image. Sure, MS may look inept, and people can argue that it's because the PS4 version may look better, but the number of people saying "XBOX One" is worth the "bad" publicity. <- not saying this is the case, but it's a possibility.

Just another example: The PlayStation Blog allows 3rd parties outside of Sony to post to the blog. The info is monitored by the PS Blog staff for oversight, but this could be a similar situation.

@xPhearR3dx

Re watching the videos on ubisoft's channel shows that its the same vid with the blurred out buttons.

Ok this situation does look like its a mistake on MS's part as they should have checked it before uploading it to their official channel.

The real problem here is that we have yet to see any XB1 footage. We have seen pc & ps4 iirc. I think this is the real problem at hand.
johndoe11211  +   409d ago
@xPhearR3dx

You're missing the point. After everything we've seen since the console reveals, everything we've heard from the devs, everything we've heard that was leaked by insiders (which turned out to be true), it all points to one thing, PS4 footage was used because xone footage is not ready.

This is the big deal here. Is it so hard to think that the devs are really having a hard time developing for the xone.

It's not just this either. Practically all multiplat games shown for the past couple of months from the devs have been on ps4. Why is that?

What is so wrong with the xone versions that no one wants to show them? All these things put together along with this watch dog footage debacle is pointing to the fact that the xone is not ready to be released.

I had always planned on getting an xone up until they confirmed all that DRM bs (I buy all systems every generation). But I'll tell you this, even if that DRM fiasco never took place I would still be cancelling my order right about now.

I salute everyone who has the balls to purchase that system on day one, you are true martyrs.

I'm not saying the ps will not have issues but from everything we've seen and heard it appears the ps4 issues would be a lot more bearable and easily fixed when they arise.

Something is wrong, microsoft knows it, the devs know it but they can't talk because of NDA's, this is a very very scary situation.

Edit: Anyone who thinks that microsoft didn't know this was ps4 footage has to be freaking insane. Even if it was ubisoft who blacked out the buttons.

Oh come on!!!!! Microsoft instructed them to use the BEST footage they had for the game and, since this game got delayed because of trying to achieve parity for the lowest common denominator bone, they were forced to show the PS4 footage. "on the case?" There are people that will actually believe that ROFL. WOW!! It's because of the bone that we PS4 gamers aren't getting this game this year!! They need the extra time to try and achieve parity for the inferior bone. Pressure from microsoft caused the delay. Wake up!!!

Obviously Ubisoft was too lazy to make another video for the X1 version so they blurred out the buttons to just show their game video. Come on folks use common sense.

Blaze929  +   409d ago
you guys just are grasping for reasons to talk bad about MS now. Ubisoft are the ones who provide all assets to Watch_Dogs, not Microsoft.

It's no different than this gen where all games were being shown on Xbox 360 with PS3 footage only finally being shown weeks/days before launch.

PS4 is Ubi's lead system for Watch_Dogs and they want to show the most optimized version. Xbox One may not be there yet.

So like everything Ubi has released, they took some old PS4 trailer and gave it to Microsoft.

So it's MS's fault for uploading something they asked for and later realized was incorrect?

Don't they call that....uhhh, accidents?

I'm just trying to be reasonable here.

You guys are all up-in-arms about how dishonest MS is, but you are the ones perpetuating lies, blaming them for every little negative thing you can come up with.

We're all supposed to be gamers here. We should all be "on the same side" so to speak. I don't understand this unrelenting hate you guys have for MS, I really don't.

LOGICWINS  +   409d ago
This wasn't an accident. Someone blanked out the buttons. Someone was trying to hide something. Whether it was MS or Ubi, it doesn't matter. Someone PURPOSEFULLY tried to pass off the PS4 version as the XB1 version. That much is certain.

Why? We don't know. We can only assume.
MRMagoo123  +   409d ago
I assume it was because its the xbone version of watch dogs holding the release back and they have no footage because the game plays like arse on the console. I wonder how close to the bullseye i am.

^^I agree. The XB1 version is either inferior or not as far into development as the PS4 version is.

Or, maybe, Ubisoft wanted to simply utilise the same gameplay video for both consoles as a shortcut for not having to reenact the gameplay on the other console.

DragonKnight  +   409d ago
Ok, so Ubisoft made the video, there are still 2 questions though.

1. Where's XB1 footage of WD?

2. Why did MS post a video they knew was for a version of the game that WASN'T their version and thus NOT representative of what to expect on XB1's version of WD?
LOGICWINS  +   409d ago
I actually believe that MS is so incompetent that they didn't know about this before today. Being too busy focusing on promoting their exclusives for launch and turning their image around, they didn't realize that they actually demoed the PS4 version.

My guess is that the XB1 version was, at that point, so visually inferior to the PS4 version that the PS4 version was passed off as the XB1 version by Ubisoft for parity purposes. Notice how we haven't heard anything from Ubi yet...it was Ubisoft.
Lionalliance  +   409d ago

Now Ubisofts turn to comment?

Sure, I can see how the fault will be with Ubi. However, if I'm given a video, before I upload it.. believe I'm checking it to ensure that it's what I expect.

Also, why would Ubi give them a video.. with blurred out buttons? Should never have gone up on the channel.

Both parties need to ensure this never happens again.
LOGICWINS  +   409d ago
As I explained above, Ubi did it for parity purposes so MS wouldn't jump down their throats if the XB1 version was visually inferior. It was them. Remember when Watch Dogs first debut. This was before the PS4/XB1 were officially announced. Ubi passed the initial footage off as if it was CURRENT-GEN gameplay..we found out later that it was high-end PC footage.

They are known for this type of stuff.

If you dont understand how its a big deal i dont know what to tell you lol, have you thought that maybe the xbone version looks that bad at the mo that they didnt want to use footage from that console ? why blur out the buttons in the first place? if it was a simple mistake who went out of their way to blur the buttons for no reason what so ever? I think the reason watchdogs is delayed is because the game is not running very well at all on the xbone and they dont/cant release the other versions first.

YodaCracker  +   409d ago
It's pretty simple. They're running out of things to bash the Xbox One for. With all the restrictive policies and "Kinect is spying on you" conspiracies far in the past, what's left? That's when you start blow things out of proportion; battery packs, resolution, a promotional video for a multiplatform game? Seems a bit desperate to me.
Hicken  +   409d ago
Somebody who supported Microsoft, regardless of their screw-ups, saying others are blowing things out of proportions is no surprise.

Anyway, in response to your other comment: who has EVER sent promotional video to a console manufacturer and just given them one with all the versions mixed in? Just thinking about all the trailers we had on our kiosks over the three years I worked at GameStop, I don't recall a single such instance happening. Even the trailers we pulled from the internet, ourselves, didn't have that very often(maybe Battlefield or Call of Duty).

Rather than people being desperate in their attacks on Microsoft, you and others seem desperate in your defense of them. Who cares what they tried to do, right? Who cares that they defended it and justified it and told us we just didn't understand yet? They eventually redacted their plans, so it should all be okay.

Resolution, by the way, isn't some minor thing being blown out of proportion. It's a problem in and of itself when a game on your console is so far behind the same game on the competition's hardware. More than that, though, it speaks to the power disparity people like you keep saying doesn't exist: the more powerful console is capable of pushing graphics 50% higher than the XB1.

But I guess in your head, that would mean they're equal.

It's just that, in this instance, Ubisoft did not properly edit the video to remove the button prompts.

They block out the button prompts so the footage can be used universally for any platform the game is releasing on. Microsoft can use it. Sony can use it. It can be used to represent the PC version. They're not going to waste time making separate videos for each version. This footage was clearly captured from the PS4, but Ubisoft made a mistake and did not remove the button prompts in those few frames.

I'd imagine this is how all publishers do it. You would never even know the footage your seeing was not captured from your console unless the video editor made a mistake like this. And it doesn't matter because both versions are bound to look virtually the same anyway. It's pointless to blow tiny matters like this out of proportion.

Don't get me wrong. I am not claiming any grand conspiracy here by MS. Just them treating us a stupid with a lame explanation. If they use generic footage all the time and Ubi did a poor editing job, then just say so.

They did the same with Need For Speed Rivals, what's Micro$oft's excuse for that too?...

Something about a mountain from a mole-hill... Get real. Its not really that big of a deal. In fact, its only a big deal to the people who are way too invested in this ridiculous console "war".

I'd like to think the idiocy of this whole thing will cease when the consoles launch, but i'm pretty sure all of you "real gamers" will somehow find time to come back here to complain and beat your chests over more dumb things instead of doing what you claim to love (playing games).

Lies, lies, lies. That's all we get from the M$ camp. Nelson You and your ilk are liars. Just show us the goods. Put up the real eXB0Ne video so we can see it. I challenge you! Show us the goods I really want to see it!

I am done with this website. It's sad to see a "gaming community" with this much hate for one company.

Not sure how old you are but I clearly remember pre and post PS3 release, what you see here on N4G now was not even a patch compared to then and that lasted until the PS3 proved all haters WRONG and PS3 owners choice were vindicated as they knew from the start it's only a matter of time!! Guess where the PS3 stands today with sales, quality AA titles and graphics fidelity? Hell GT6 is on the way soon,now how's that.

I revel in the fact that the wheels have turned!

Its sad that gamers are this gullible. If someone tried to fuck you and take all your rights, would you forgive them??

"The footage was available on official Xbox YouTube channel for months"

Sure Nelson, it was all Ubisoft's fault...

First it's Done Mattrick & Yusuf BSing on stage.
We still have Phil Spencer BSing the whole way.
Now Larry Herb BSing. Yes I said "Herb" :)
I know they're trying to steer clear of any more negative attention but BSing isn't going to win them any fans.
The Xbone itself, the Kinect, the cloud, it' all just one big pile of BS. What happens when the Bone buyers get it home & see it, then ask, "what is this"? "This is BS".
