While everyone around the world are waiting for the Titanfall game launch in the next few days, Titanfall customers in South Africa have got bad news.

Microsoft last week announced that they have started the roll-out of February system update for Xbox One customers. As you already know, this update includes several new improvements such as the ability to see and manage your storage space, ability to use your USB keyboard,  and more.

For games that didn’t run natively at a 1080p resolution, and were upscaled to that full HD experience, a strong sharpening filter was applied that caused aliasing and jagged edges.
