Sony Edits Halo 3 Wiki Entry

First Electronic Arts committed Wikipedia fraud. Now Sony is up to bat. And this time the company is question wasn't editing their own entry with false information, they edited a competitor's. SCEE's Liverpool studio was caught red handed making changes to the Halo Wiki entry adding that the graphics will "look the same as Halo 2".

The article has now been locked by the Wikipedia from further updates.

Source: MaxConsole

Low blow, or smart maneuver? Sony just can't seem to keep their hands off of Microsoft's stuff. Anyone remember the PGR3 fiasco?

Well it's true. The graphics look like Halo 2.. I think it's more of correct editing in a neutral fashion other than what was originally written, which was of course pure fan boish

Definitely NOT a smart maneuver given they were caught red handed and this is simply another incident that gamers will add to their collection of "Sony's Embarrassing PS3 Moments".

As a PS3 can I get some good Sony news for once? Sony can you help me here?!?!

I think it's just stupid. I thought the whole "wikipedia can track edits" was big news, so to ignore that and edit the wiki entry is pretty stupid. I mean, who works in the gaming industry and doesn't read Penny Arcade or read Slashdot? At least one of those sites should have told every Sony employee what was up.

That's actually kinda funny, though I would bet that it was just an independent guy there screwing around.

A program that scans for Wikipedia edits is recently in the media, and someone at Sony thinks it's a good idea to "edit" Wikipedia at work...

Assuming he worked at Sony to be able to edit from there, I'm betting he's going to be a lot more "independent" in the near future.

It doesn't matter if it's true or not. It's completely unethical for someone working at Sony to edit the Wikipedia entry for one of their competitor's products, especially to edit it with negative information.

I think they look the same as halo 2, when not in motion.

Oh cool, didn't realize some people had the game already. That's weird. Is the campaign any good?

Haha, yeah, as he should be. It may be funny, but it's not very bright.

You must be looking at different screens from the one I've seen. Although Halo 3 doesn't look like a quantum leap above Halo 2, the differences are pretty clear to me.

Doesn't this fall under that new law about guerrilla marketing (shilling)?

Seriously, the visuals look way better than Halo 2. Granted, when I played the multiplayer beta back in May, I wasn't impressed with what I was seeing. Then shots of the campaign were released and it looked like a night and day difference for me.

I'm sure both Microsoft and Bungie have locked down access to anything related to Sony or Nintendo.

One would hope.

Apple though is fairgame!!
