Konami has recently published their plans for their next major release, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes on next generation consoles. MGS5 will run at a native 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second on the Sony PS4 but just 720p at 60 fps on Microsoft’s Xbox One. This is not the first time where a major game developer opts for a lower resolution gameplay, we have seen similar actions from Battlefield, Call of Duty, etc. Microsoft on its part always declined to accept that Xbox One is under powered when compared to PS4. Microsoft have their own example like Forza which runs 1080p on Xbox One.

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. One more unreported improvement is that the strong sharpening filter issue reported by many in Xbox One is not fixed. 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. Since it is fixed now, unscaled games should look better. Drew McCoy of Respawn Entertainment also confirmed that, “This should also make the scaler much better”.

Microsoft today announced that they are starting 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.
