Xbox 360 Commercial Pulled, for Using PS3 Footage of Same Game

Ha! Hahahaha. Sorry, please excuse my laughter—I just find it hilarious that the advertising agency employed by Microsoft thought they could get away with showing PS3 Final Fantasy XIII scenes. "Wot, it's the same game, innit?"

Sparked by an eagle-eyed British viewer, who dobbed in the commercial to the Advertising Standards Authority, the commercial was swiftly yanked following a comparison of gameplay between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.

The ASA commented that "we noted that there was a discernible difference in the picture quality of the two—the PS3 image in video sequences appeared sharper and colors were more vivid than those of the Xxbox 360."

Due to the potentially misleading nature of the ad, it was pulled from telly and won't be given the light of day again. Much like that advertising agency, I imagine. [The Telegraph via Kotaku]
