Sony Germany Takes a Jab at Microsoft Over Call of Duty’s Resolution on Social Media, Then Deletes it All

on October 31, 2013 7:13 PM

The news about Call of Duty: Ghosts running at 1080p native on PS4 and 720p upscaled on Xbox One created some rather salty responses. Apparently one of said responses came directly from the German branch of Sony, that threw the gauntlet of challenge directly at Microsoft’s face by posting the picture you can see above on its official social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter.

After posting the taunting image they seem to have had a change of heart, and both the tweet and the post on Facebook have been since canceled.

The internet, though, does not easily let you hide your tracks like that, and evidence of both posts still exists. Twitter user ALLEN managed to capture the Facebook post on a screencap from his cellphone, that you can see below.

The tweet didn’t go unnoticed as well, and the popular Japanese blog  My Game News Flash managed to embed it before it was deleted, leaving a lasting trace on the internet, including the original url that points to PlayStation Germany’s official account and show how it has been deleted.

I wonder why Sony Germany decided to remove the posts. After all the console war leading to the beginning of this new generation has seen way more salty jabs. Maybe they just decided to keep it classy, but it’s still rather amusing. It kind of reminds me of this.
