Ranking 5 of the Most Memorable Video Game PR Disasters

There are five PR disasters in particular that stand out as being very memorable, and while not all of them led to grave financial losses, each definitely had an impact on the product or game that was involved. Some are severe enough that they nearly led to the downfall of gaming, while others only ended up tarnishing the rep of the company and eventually worked themselves out. (E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Microsoft, Nintendo, PS3, Sony, Ubisoft, Watch Dogs, Xbox One)

Good old E.T. is synonymous with these types of lists.

Watch Dogs was the worst that I can remember.

Nah, Watchdogs was bad, but thats just simple embarrassment.

The Xbox One reveal was probably the worst I've seen. They almost single handedly destroyed they're entire console base.

I know I jumped ship to PS4 because of it. I used to be a big Xbox fan, and actually never owned a Playstation system before. But that nonsense they pulled with the Xbox One reveal was too much.

It made me not trust them, even after they flip flopped they're decision.

In the end, I'm glad I did, because the PS4 outperforms the Xbox One in pretty much every way.
