Microsoft Uses Battlefield 4 Gameplay Footage Recorded On A PC In Xbox One Promo

Recent reports make it clear that EA’s biggest first person shooter, Battlefield 4 is running at native 720p on the Xbox One. This resolution is lower than both PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the game, this takes Xbox One step down from its sore rival that is PlayStation 4.

Despite of the fact that Xbox One version of Battlefield 4 has the lowest resolution, the game looks very detailed in a gameplay trailer that Microsoft is using to promote “Battlefield 4: Showdown”, a Battlefield 4 tournament between Europe and USA that Microsoft is sponsoring. The trailer can be seen on Official Xbox Youtube channel.

Turns out that the gameplay footage is not taken from Xbox One but is recorded on PC and Microsoft is still using it with an Xbox One logo watermarked on it. Furiousfanboys first detected “backspace” option during the gameplay that is used to view battlelog.
