GTA IV TV Spot: Something Interesting

Has anybody else noticed this? I was watching TV for a few hours yesterday and happened to see a GTA IV commercial multiple times and I noticed something that really confused me. In the beginning of the spot it shows the Playstation logo along with its little sound bite, and then at the end it show the Playstation logo again along with the Playstation 3 logo. The Xbox 360 logo is nowhere to be found anywhere in the TV spot and the system is not mentioned even once.

Maybe it is a case that some of the TV Spots have the Playstation logo and some have the 360 logo, but I only ever say the Playstation spot. Has anybody else noticed this or am I the only one that has been watching TV? The following video is the only one the one that I have been seeing. The spot that I have been seeing is just like this one except at the end when it says that its coming soon, it says that it is now available. But, they are the same commercial and if you look at the logos on the bottom of the screen, the 360 logo is nowhere to be found.

I found the video. Also, I found videos of the exact same trailer that include the Xbox 360 logo at the bottom next to the PS3 logo. I just find it very odd and a disservice to anybody watching the trailer. Consumers are stupid and I imagine that a lot of people that see that would imagine that it is only on the PS3 and not on the 360. It seems kind of dumb for Rockstar to do something like that because it could potentially limit their possible market and it sucks because the 360 version is arguably the better version. And for somebody who doesn't own a next gen console yet and wants to get GTA IV, they should know that they have an option between the two systems and that they aren't being forced into buying the more expensive of the two.
