I just noticed that there is a question about cross-platform play of Civilization between Xbox and PC. It can be found here:
The original question asks whether or not Civ 5 can be played between PC and Xbox. The main answer says that there is no Civ 5 for the Xbox, but then expands on the topic by talking about the Civ game that is available on Xbox, Civilization: Revolutions.
The answerer also discusses that either way, there is little chance that the games can be played together even if both players are playing Civ: Rev or Civ 5 between PC and Xbox.
The Questioner made a mistake and meant to say Civ: Rev and edited the question a day later after the answer had already gathered steam. Through context clues, you can understand what has happened.
Consider, what if the question had been something much less construable like:
"Can players play Final Fantasy XI across Xbox and PS3?"
However, the questioner meant to say:
"Can players play Final Fantasy XIV across Xbox and PS3?"
The answer to the original question is yes since there was a PC/360/PS3 version of FFXI. However, after realizing the mistake and changing the question to XIV, the answer is now no since there is not 360 version of XIV.
I feel like the correct way to deal with this situation is to revert the question and if the questioner still needs additional answers, create a new question. Is this the right response?
