'PS4' Anthem footage on Sony's YouTube is apparently from Xbox One X, Photoshopped



Go ahead and watch the below video, which showcases Anthem footage allegedly hosted by a PS4 Pro. Flip over to 3:39 -- enhance...enhance. Wait, is that a Photoshopped UI? According to Eurogamer and many other fans who pointed it out, it is.

Allegedly, the video up on Sony's official YouTube is from the Xbox One X version of the game showed at E3, just with a re-tooled/airbrushed UI. While this might not be a big deal to some, the video clearly isn't representative of what the PS4 Pro can do, which might confuse some folks. There's also the chance that it was running on PC, as E3 demos often do.

It's odd, because BioWare has over a full year to tweak Anthem given its late 2018 release window. Maybe Sony wanted in on the party after Microsoft debuted it at their E3 conference? Why did EA think this was a good idea? We've reached out to EA/Sony for clarification on the matter.
