Why Microsoft....why did you have to do this??
Sony knocks Halo 3 graphics with Wikipedia vandalism

"I look better than Halo 2, dang it!"
According to Ars Technica, the following paragraph was modified by SCEE's Liverpool Offices before Wikipedia administrators removed the last line in bold:
"Halo 3, the third game in the best-selling Xbox game franchise, is a highly anticipated first-person shooter under development by Bungie Studios for the Xbox 360 and is expected to "set a new high water mark" for next-generation games, although it won't look any better than Halo 2."
To be fair, the Wikipedia entry could have been made by a non-Sony employee merely using internet access while on the premises. Additionally, Halo 3 graphics have been criticized for not matching the visuals of Gears of War, a game that was released last year on Xbox 360.
In January it was reported that one software engineer received money from Microsoft for favorably updating the company's Wikipedia entries.
Im just utterly shocked....so those are not their (Halo 3) visuals?
