XBox 360 Commercial Pulled for Using PS3 Footage

An XBox 360 commercial featuring footage from Final Fantasy XIII was pulled. Why you ask? Well, read the title. The ad was pulled because the ad featured scenes from the PS3 version of the game, which looks notably better on the PS3, apparently. It was tracked down by someone with good eyesight, who noticed that the scenes looked better than they do on the XBox 360 version. After some investigation, he figured out that the scenes looked better because they were from the PS3 version. After some whistle blowing, Microsoft pulled the publicity got too bad. Unfortunately for Microsoft, the story leaked out, and now they have a lot of questions to answer.
