Playstation youtube has uploaded 4K footage of Anthem (the same video shown at E3)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dujsHioT8zI
At the bottom of the screen you can see the button prompts, however when it appears/disappears, you can see the sneaky edit isn't quite as neat.
You can see the Xbox One button prompts underneath as the HUD fades in.

Naughty Naughty

A good example here when the character jumps out of the water and lands

< and > on the keyboard to move single frames.

Aren't these videos submitted by the publisher and then just published on Sony's YouTube account? Might be EA at fault here.

Hmm, to me it seems like EA did this, not Sony, Sony just published it.

Publishers do this from time to time when they want have the platform holders promote games on their channel or in montages.

Not actually representative of the console I guess? Though the footage on the Xbox conference was probably running on a PC as well lol

They all do it. Means the devs don't have to make two versions of identical gameplay for both platforms YouTube channels. Either that or just don't show button prompts at all.

This is nothing new. Happens all the time on the differing platforms.

In fact you'll see the same trailer on PS, MS, and publisher sites all with different buttons (usually each console and PC) as well as missing logo for Xbox or PS4 on the respective platform channel.

It's a frostbite game. All footage so far was probably PC, anyway.

Digital Foundry said it was feasible it was Xbox One X, as it was checkboarded, whereas Frostbite demos for PC are usually native.

Later on in the trailer there is all the dumb dialogue between the 2 characters on the mission ("lot of them down there" etc), standard fake mic chatter and it really plucks my nerves.

I loved that gameplay demo, but this bugged me and my friends watching it the whole way through. We couldn't tell if it was in-game or staged voicechat. Seemed too good for staged voice chat, but also sounded way too gamey for in-game dialogue.

Unless Bioware have completely lost all writing ability, Im pretty sure that was supposed to be fake online commentary.

It sounds like all the other phoned in fake online chat literally every other publisher uses when showing off a co op game

I hate that sort of crap. That doesn't make it feel like the game's really played, it just makes it feel like you mocked up the gameplay entirely.

But yeah, probably safe to say that's on EA and Bioware.

It was the fastest thing for EA to do.

Take footage, replace button prompt icons, ensure text on video to say NOT FINAL PRODUCT or something of the sort, send to Sony.

Have a nice day.

You don't seem to get how these things work. It's not Sony's asset to make. It's EA's and so it's on them to send them "proper ps4 footage".

OP is of the era of PS3 vs 360 where we would freak about this. Now though you can trust multi platform development to be equal on both system.

Huh? EA is making the game and sending the footage. Talk to EA if you're so hard up for a couple minutes of meaningless footage of a game not coming out for awhile.

Why would Sony be having to edit footage of a third party game? Is this something they have to do themselves for every third party title?

I mean, it was probably running on PC anyway, so it probably isn't a big deal regardless. But I'm curious where you read that it was Sony that did this.

Do people think Sony designed their own PS4 version of the button prompts and placed them over the Xbox footage or something?
