Latest Xbox One Firmware Update Removes The Sharpening Filter Issue, Games Look Better Now

Xbox One Sharpening

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”. Find more screenshots from the link below.

    Inferior to PS4 and above all PC current drive cards….

      Yes, but the story line in most Xbox games are superior, though then again I’d still say that the Microsoft Windows P.C.’s are kicking butt, but the story lines are still pretty awesome on an Xbox-branded console.

        Except Titanfall….Most are the same…

    “I think, between the home consoles available in the domestic market, the PS4 is the best,” he said. “It’s also excellent for graphics, being able to render 1080p at 60fps with room to spare. Since it does it a little better than other hardware, the image quality of the PS4 is the most beautiful. It’s the closest to the photorealistic quality we are aiming at.”

      He also had to defend his 1 hr long gameplay. Graphics over content. Not impressed. Won’t be buying this game I guess.

      I hope you have fun with Knack… I’ll play Tintafall, PvZ:Garden Warfare, Forza 5, DeadRising 3, Peggle 2, RYSE, Max: The curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault while you’re at it.

      And what’s more the Xbox One will cut Kinect power on some games so that the One is 20 percent more powerful. Besides gameplay (and games) over graphics, if I wanted graphics I would use my PC with a Nvidia GTX580.

    Typo. “issue reported by many in Xbox One is not fixed.” think you meant is “now” fixed.

    Anyone know when a patch is coming to stop frame jumping when watching TV (in Australia on PAL with Foxtel). When the movie or show you’re watching pans over a landscape or scene or credits are rolling upward there is significant frame jumping. Anyone else experience this?

      I’ve noticed that they did not fix it. Quite irritating when a primary reason I purchased it was to have a box for streaming and playing games. I was really hoping they’d fix it.
