I've just noticed what you have said here. When adding media from Facebook using a URL (which it looks like you did correctly the first time) you will only see the Facebook logo as the thumbnail:As above, and adding media just gives a Facebook logo as you can see in the media section
I'm glad it's not just me that thought that, I recently mentioned the game to a work colleague and proceeded to show him footage as I knew there was newly released clips from E3 2015. I then proceeded to check the resolution setting on youtube and kept saying "that's not right, it's much more detailed than that"....loaded up the original trailer we saw and they're a world apart.From the original E3 footage and the snowdrop engine trailer it look proper next gen. Then they show us the Dark Zone in E3 2015 and my first reaction was "What the hell have they done to this game" the graphics have been downgraded, even the animations and UI have been downgraded too.

I do still have hopes for this game but it clearly shows how much bullshit we're fed in the run up to console releases and at E3...early footage is clearly pre-rendered and/or running on beastly PC's that are way more powerful than the system the game is coming out on but that's what they're aiming for....the reality is they often don't reach their aim on graphic fidelity.
To be fair on Ubi (I think) haven't they now taken a line of "no target renders"?
Sadly, the footage for The Division was created prior to this.
In reality that isn't anything new and the majority of people probably won't even notice the difference.
I am not usually one for resolution this or that etc. But what I am talking about in this game is the game engine if you notice the earlier footage the snowdrop engine is amazing (Car door's react when player is near them or going for cover, window/chassis/tyre damage.....smoke/light particles etc) - this entire engine looks dumbed down in 2015's footage. So even if in 2013 it was run on an amazing PC and 2015 is showing PS4 for example it wouldn't cover the acutally game engine all it would cover is RES / FPS / Particle effect. Not the animation / environment reactions with combat, Hell even the UI is dumbed down (No more 3D Map / 3D arm holo UI).Wah, wah, wah, resolution this, framerate that, I grew up in the 80's! Big was all the rage back then, Hair, shoulder pads, pixels so I'm not bothered by big pixels now!
Framerate, 60fps? Are you people retarded? Hello? A game made at 30fps lasts twice as long! Value for money people!
