Box art and Game Content

What to do when a version of a game looks better than all others? Use it in all publicity, right? Well, that haven’t came out well to Square Enix, that was in trouble with the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority las week for using PS3 visuals in an Xbox 360 advert. There is just a slight difference between both versions, but even though it was enought to generate complains among some Xbox 360 owners and to draw attention of UK’s Advertising Standards Authority.

Therewith, Geek.com made this excellent article, indicating how completely different publicity of old games looked from the actual game. The most astonishing case is, of course, Atari 2600, but there are plenty of more for those who remember those days.
