Sony Germany Pokes Fun At Xbox One On Social Media, Then Abruptly Removes It


In a move that obviously wasn’t sanctioned by the company as a whole, Sony Germany took a jab at the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts. The account posted an inflammatory image on Facebook and Twitter showing the native resolution and fps of the PS4 version of Call of Duty: Ghosts. As we all know, there’s been quite a controversy over next-gen resolution in the past weeks.

Shortly afterward, the German team pulled the image from social media, but they forgot one very important thing. This is the internet. There’s almost always a paper trail. They’d nearly gotten off scott free when a Twitter user posted a screen cap from his phone depicting the image.

If you take a step back and look at things objectively, it wasn’t that big a deal. The image didn’t make wild accusations, it wasn’t explicit, nor did it mention Xbox One outright. But it was rather unnecessary. We’re now a fortnight from the launch of the PlayStation 4. Gamers have more than likely made their next-gen decision, and Sony’s PR and marketing are rolling like a hot knife through butter. There’s no need to point out the flaws of your competition. If you’ve been on the internet in the past week, you’ll know the scoop has basically run its course.
