Gametrailers: GRID video blunder was a “mistake”

By Patrick Garratt, Tuesday, 13 May 2008 07:23 GMT

Speaking to Joystiq, GameTrailers’ EIC, Shane Satterfield, has gone on the record to say that the borked comparison video that compared PS3 footage to PS3 footage – while claiming one was the 360 game – was a simple error.

“It was a mistake in our post-production process,” he said. “After we captured the footage from both versions, some of the footage of the PlayStation 3 version of the game was incorrectly placed in the bin for the Xbox 360 footage. Our video editor on this particular project is not a games person and completely overlooked the fact that he had the wrong footage in the wrong place.”

As we said at the time, shit happens. More through the link.
