Example 1: Body designs are more G1 related.
Example 2: Plot in the franchise
Example 3: Takara said that WFC is part of G1 in the United toyline.
There is some resons to this:
Example 1: The body designs are based on those from G1 and other continuities. Hasbro stated that is how they designed the Aligned continuity.
Example 2: The plot is derived from their legendary "Binder of Revelation." And the entire plot uses elements from Generation 1, Unicron Trilogy, Beast Wars, Animated, and more.
Example 3: Takara Tomy has nothing to do with the Aligned continuity. They are in charge of their own half of this franchise. Which means that we can see anime-based prequels/sequels to PRIME, and have none of it affect Hasbro's Aligned continuity.

While I do not treat the books as a "It is happening while I read it" element, I see the continuity errors making it more of a "historical data" kind of read. And the differences between the games and PRIME has me thinking that if the events were different, they were superficial at best.
Also, on a side-note, I am wondering if "New Recruit" means that there will be a change in the line-up and not just an add-on. Besides that, I would like to at least see Jetfire join Team Prime in S3, as they need a science-class on their side.
