Microsoft Apologises for The Witcher 3 Xbox One Video Confusion
The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt runs on Xbox One at 900p and 30 FPS, but a video uploaded by the official YouTube channel of Xbox indirectly suggested that it was better.
They put up a new video that was running at 1080p and 60 FPS; alongside that, they didn’t clarify which platform the video had been made on. The viewers considered that Microsoft was trying to imply that Xbox One version of the game was going to manage that.
This was regarded as a misrepresentation of the facts which was evident from tons of comments that were made immediately after the video was uploaded.
Naturally, all the hue and cry raised by the fans after that was going to bring out a response from Microsoft and it did. They have not only updated the video description and added that it was captured on PC, but they have also issued an official statement to clear up the confusion:
This morning we posted a new trailer for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to our YouTube channels featuring footage provided by CD Projekt Red that was captured from the PC version of the game and may not be reflective of final Xbox One gameplay. This was in no way intended to misrepresent the title on Xbox One. We have updated the description of the asset to make clear the source and platform of this footage. We apologize for any confusion and look forward to the game arriving on both Xbox One and PC on May 19, 2015.
Well, it is highly probable that they erroneously missed out on the disclaimer because obviously nothing like this was going to hold for long.
What do you think?
