Comcast Xfinity commercial attempts to reach out to gamers, fails miserably

Comcast has been doing its darndest to try and reach out to gamers. Earlier this month, Comcast and EA were reportedly working on a deal to stream EA’s games. Comcast’s commercials as of late for Xfinity have been trying to target the gaming crowd, unfortunately it has incited gamer ire more than anything else.

The commercial in question, below, features gamers complaining about their Internet speeds in a Xfinity mall booth. A Comcast representative, in an attempt to sell Xfinity speeds, talks about how great the service is. He provides Trials Fusion for gamers to test out and try, guaranteeing there to be no lag.

There’s only problem: Trials Fusion has no online multiplayer component. It only features couch co-op. Awkward.
