Bungie’s recent trailer for Destiny 2‘s Forsaken expansion gave a preview of many of the new features headed to the shooter, but it seems Sony wasn’t happy with one aspect of the footage.
In a recent post on the Destiny subreddit, user SirIsaacTheThird noticed a slight difference between the original DLC trailer and PlayStation’s edited version. One scene in the original documentary-style clip shows a developer working on the game with an Xbox 360 controller, but PlayStation’s cut has the controller blurred. SirIsaacTheThird uploaded a comparison image, which you can see below.
While PlayStation might have felt justified to make the odd edit due to its partnership with Activision for Destiny 2 exclusive content, the company has pulled a similar stunt in the past. During last year’s E3, Microsoft revealed Xbox One X enhanced gameplay footage of Anthem, which PlayStation reuploaded with PlayStation 4 DualShock button prompts photoshopped over the Xbox One controller inputs.
Sony ultimately pulled the Anthem trailer after players realized the difference, so there’s a possibility its Destiny 2 trailer could be removed soon. Constant console war aside, all platforms will have access to Forsaken once it launches this September. Bungie has teased it will be the most extensive update to the shooter so far, with a new campaign in the Reef and several changes to the game’s core mechanics, including weapon slots, Supers, and more.
Destiny 2 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
