Xbox One patch before/after TitanFall video

Xbox One patch before/after TitanFall video

As announced by Microsoft the February patch for the Xbox One is being deployed right now on all consoles in the world. One the many changes, and an announced that too, is the disabling of the much decried sharpening effect used when scaling games running at a sub 1080p resolution, leading to a much more natural image! I've recorded this quick video showing the before and after patch image quality of the Angel City map in TitanFall, just running around a bit.

Before/after scaler patch comparison

way worse.

No more shitty sharpening filter, way better.

definitely looks better. However while I understand 60fps is important this game still graphically looks like a 360 launch title.
Commented on 2014-02-15 16:37:54
Well it looks like crap both ways to be quite honest. So my understanding here is that the Xbox One cannot run a game that literally looks like a last gen 360 game at 1080p? I just don't understand how this is acceptable to people willing to fork out $500 for this thing..

why the fuck isn't shit like these a settings choice?

Cos who would want to have a photoshop sharpening filter applied over all games that can't achieve 1080p (in xbones case, most of them) unless you like your games shitty aliasing amplified further?
Commented on 2014-02-15 17:01:39
So its still way below 1080p? lol
Well it looks slightly better after patch so thats one small step in the right direction.

A 360 launch title? Now you really are ripping the arse out of it there.

Just a smidge over 720p. But it "may improve". I bloody well expect it to looking the way it does.

There's a chance it will become 900p, but i am not expecting 1080p anymore. I am trying to understand though. Correct me if i'm wrong but this is the engine used for Half Life 2, isn't it? How the hell can this not easily run in 1080p? I am still puzzled why it is so hard for several developers to achieve 1080p. CoD Ghosts in 720p is just so pathetic really.

I believe it's the low memory bandwidth that's causing the bottleneck, the xbone's GPU(7850) should be able to play source engine games at 1080p 60fps easily, but it's crippled by the cheap shitty ddr3 memory M$ opted for, but hey, at least xbone owners have kinect. lol it's really sad.
Commented on 2014-02-15 18:57:35
Really looking much better to me, very noticeable on my X1. Also BF4 seems te look a bit better and less Jaggies :)

Never mind you have kill zone, which is visually stunning. Only problem is it's now got an option to cap to 30fps due to issues, Oh and it average 6-7/10. Oh and a Kinect style device that will get crap support.
Getting back to Titan fall. Not had much chance to play it yet, due to having children in the house. But it looks better than I was expecting already. I'd really not been impressed with screen shots I'd seen. Can't wait to have a decent play of the beta.
Commented on 2014-02-15 19:16:23
It's as much vanilla Source Engine as CoD's Quake Engine. It's a heavily modified Source Engine, so don't expect it to run as smooth as HL2.

I have killzone?! lol That's cute, you think i'm a sony fanboy.

Truth is, I just simply play games, and it so happens that I play multiplatform and PC only games on my gaming PC, and I absolutely love Sony's playstation exclusive games.

I do however tend to stear clear from the xbox consoles, the first xbox had a massive controller that I didn't like, the 360 had fundamentally faulty hardware and no exclusive that captured my interest enough for a purchase, and they just seemed to lose the plot with the xbone's hardware specs and used their silicon budget on that stupid 32mb of esram that's mainly used for their multimedia OS.

many devs seem to favour the ps4 over the xbone for multiplat games e.g. http://uk.ign.com/videos/2014/02/13/metal-gear-sol...

My personal recomendation to anyone this gen is to get a PS4 and a decent enough gaming PC for the ultimate gaming experience, oh, and if you have a extra bit of cash get a wiiU on the cheap(nintendo has a special place in my heart, they got me into gaming:).
Commented on 2014-02-15 20:47:55
wow I hope they fix all of this..and games two years from now won't be needing a bunch of patches.
come on Microsoft/Sony and game devs, you gotta do better.

I agree here to an extent. If this continues, I fail to see how this is acceptable all of a sudden. Many outlets made a big deal out of the differences between 360 and ps3 multiplatform games. The differences being very minor later in the gen.

Here we are with another XB1 (although not exclusive game) with huge resources and still having trouble hitting 1080p. What's going to happen later in the gen when studios want more eye candy than Titanfall?
Commented on 2014-02-15 23:41:44
WTF?? I just played it on pc and it look and runs way better with my old pc. If thats NEXTGEN then thanks but no thanks. My last two consoles were Xbox 360,but it looks to me that its better to have a pc and ps4 (for more variety of games). GOOD NIGHT
Commented on 2014-02-16 00:04:07
sorry but it still looks like a xbox 360 game..no excuse for that at all
Commented on 2014-02-16 00:06:22
Well i think its obvious the xbox one will not have a very long console cycle/life at all

the machine can not even do 1080p for 90% of games and it looks like it wont really be able too in the future either as the specs are substandard

i love what sony have done with the ps4, its a power horse for a console which means few years from now games will still look better and better like they did with the ps3

the xbox one maybe games will look better for about a year or so then they all will look the same

My personal opinion is that the game looks outdated, both on X1 and PC. You can't expect a 'next'-gen visual experience from an updated 10 year old engine. But what I don't get is that Ryse looks vastly superior on X1 than Titanfall. Ryse runs at 30fps instead of 60fps, but it is in 900p. So is it really a problem with the X1 or is it just bad programming from Respawn? This game should easily run at 1080p. I don't see any new technology or technical features that are high demanding on resources.

There must be a reason for this weird issue, but will we ever know?
Commented on 2014-02-16 02:34:44
Lol everyone going on about 1080p... llike t has to be done.

Games are for fun, story telling, gameplay. not bloody graphics as if this was the case no one should of bought a PS3 as every game on that console was flawed, hell even Orange box, Bayonetta etc.. ran like crap on sonys machine, also most 3rd party games was low res.

Yeah Ps3 had LOU, and....... oh and god of war lol.

If you want graphics so bad go buy a PC for this as consoles will be out done by them in like.. oh wait they already are.

Ryse wasn't a consistent 30fps experience according to eurogamer.
Commented on 2014-02-16 05:11:21 In reply to Sci0n
Don't compare this to Bayonetta and Orange Box. Please, just don't. And let's also not get into the whole list of games that the PS3 had, because you'll just look stupid.

The game looks like fun, but it doesn't quite stack up to what was expected of next gen. The 360 was perfectly capable of running games that were fun, so it makes no sense to release a new console if it doesn't at least look better.

And this isn't some small 3rd party developer. This is Respawn with EA backing. They have a whole lot of resources at their disposal and it isn't even a launch title. There really is no excuse.
