Sony is editing Xbox One X footage of Anthem and hosting it on PlayStation YouTube

Bioware's upcoming futuristic third-person shooter Anthem made quite a splash at E3 2017. At its press briefing, Microsoft also showed off gameplay footage of the title, which touted various kinds of weapons and armor, crafting system, and dynamic and large-scale environments. Overall, the trailer and the footage of the upcoming game was quite positively received.

Now, it appears that Sony wants to cash in on the hype as well, with the company recently posting some gameplay footage on its official YouTube channel. There's only one problem: it's the same footage that was seen on Microsoft's Xbox One X at E3, in fact, Sony has even done a (poor) job of editing the video and passing it off as PlayStation 4 gameplay.

As spotted by Eurogamer, some poorly-edited PS4 buttons can be seen overlaid on the Xbox One X controls at the 3:39 mark in the video:

While both the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X will reportedly be using checkerboarding techniques to run the game at 4K resolution, it is important to note that the title of the video describes it as footage from the PlayStation 4, which may not be the same experience as on the newer consoles at all.

The move appears to be the latest in Sony's ongoing PR fiasco, and it remains to be seen how this will affect the company's reputation in the future.
