The Removal of the Hated Xbox One Sharpening Filter Comes at the Price of Texture Detail

When the Xbox One February update removed the much reviled sharpening filter that interfered with antialiasing and created jaggies and artifacts on games upscaled to 1080p from a lower resolution was welcomed by many as a very positive change, and it definitely is, yet it comes at a price. (Xbox One)

I could say a lot of bad things about Microsoft, but honestly those are details I wouldn't even have noticed lol. Games still look a lot better now that before the update, imo.

I think it should've just been on PS4 also then we'd have a better console version without all these sacrifices made because of Xbox One. Also people could play it on consoles for $100 less. But It's EA and Microsoft so money talks right?

Having it on ps4 wouldn't make a better version. It's on pc as well with the same overall scope and comparable visuals. PS4 may look closer to the pc but you can barely tell as is between x1 and pc.

Angainor7  +   534d ago
you will never play titanfall on your ps4 my friend. Microsoft already spent so much money to this IP, so most probably will buy it just like Gears. But don't worry, you still have your indies..
The_Infected  +   534d ago

I've got a Xbox One "although I'll probably sell it" and I'm playing Titanfall:)

You think indies are all PS4 has? Lol what about Driveclub, The Order: 1886, Uncharted PS4, Infamous: Second Son, SSM new game, GG new game etc. oh and all those indies also. Looks like PS4 has the best of both worlds:)

If this was on the PS4, you would get better visuals but really crappy online connectivity and downgraded experience due to the lack of dedicated server.

Remember, Respawn went both to MS and Sony asking for a solution to their nagging cloud problem, and only one company had the resources and the motivation to meet the server needs. Namely MS!

Graphics is overrated, and game play is what makes me play a game over and over and over. Until this day, I still play StarCraft and Ninja Gaiden Black!

You can stare at graphics, and I will play the games!

Besides, we are getting to the point of diminishing returns on graphics anyhow.

PS4 fans need to accept that Titanfall isn't going to be on PS4.

Just like Uncharted 4, starhawk mmo, and Planetside 2 will not be on Xbox One.
stuna1  +   534d ago

You're more than likely right about the first installment of TitanFall not appearing on the PS4, but at this point in time it's unbelievably shortsighted to even speculate that if there are any chances of a sequel being made that it wouldn't become an automatic top priority that it be released on the PS4!

Right now EA and Respawn are probably smashing their heads into brick walls, steel doors, and glass tables! Anything that could cause blunt trauma to their inflated ego's.

You see EA and more than likely Microsoft where possibly under the impression that the PS4 was going to be the underdog coming into this generation! Microsoft was also quoted to say they were going to kill Sony this generation! I don't know if they meant Sony as a company or, the console that they offered. Anyway, as for the console that's not looking very likely!

Making a deal to buy the TitanFall ip flat out is probably not even an option for Microsoft at this point, because just as you and I see the sells and demand for the PS4, the whole world sees it, but most importantly the developers see it! And believe me, they all want a piece of that pie that is the PS4.

zeuanimals  +   533d ago

You do know the 360 and PC don't have access to those dedicated servers, right? Only the X1 has access to them and somehow Respawn are supposed to make the game work on both of those platforms as well without the Cloud...

PC also doesn't have MS's server capabilities and so it shouldn't be able to run on there either, right?

The PS3 actually had more games that ran on dedicated servers. Even way back in 2007 with Warhawk. The 360's only exclusive with dedicated servers was Gears of War Judgement, every other game was a multi-plat like the Battlefield games. So... Sony lacks dedicated servers and MS doesn't. We still haven't seen many games use the Cloud or MS's dedicated servers.

I keep hearing this talk of the PS4 version of games being the "better" version. Not only is this a vague statement, it is also not accurate as to what is being implied, and also subjective.

People need to choose their words more carefully and say what they mean, which would be claiming that the PS4 version would be the the better LOOKING version, which is also subjective.

The "better" version of a game, is the one a player prefers, regardless of reasons. I own a high-end PC and an X1, and I say the X1 version is the better of the two, because that is the one where I can play with my friends, and thus, the version that will grant me the better overall experience.


"You do know the 360 and PC don't have access to those dedicated servers, right? Only the X1 has access to them and somehow Respawn are supposed to make the game work on both of those platforms as well without the Cloud..."

- you are flatout wrong:


"Microsoft has a cloud service called Azure (it’s a real thing – you can go on their website right now and pay for servers and use them to run whatever you want). Microsoft realized that they could use that technology to solve our problem.

So they built this powerful system to let us create all sorts of tasks that they will run for us, and it can scale up and down automatically as players come and go. We can upload new programs for them to run and they handle the deployment for us. And they’ll host our game servers for other platforms, too! Titanfall uses the Xbox Live Cloud to run dedicated servers for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360."

Did you catch that last line -

"Titanfall uses the Xbox Live Cloud to run dedicated servers for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360."

cozomel  +   533d ago
Sony had dedicated servers all last gen, and fanboys didnt care, now suddenly when MS is talking about using them more, than suddenly they matter. Xbox fanboys only care about something when their corporate overlord is doing it. And listen to them whine about how graphics dont matter. Then why spend $5oo on a disappointing system for when they have their 360s? Its all bs and they know it. MS let y'all down

"Did you catch the words used in that last line? "Dedicated servers" not cloud based computing. The 360 is not and will not use Azure for more than hosting."

- which is completely irrelevant...

I was responding to zeuanimal's claim:

"You do know the 360 and PC don't have access to those dedicated servers, right? Only the X1 has access to them and somehow Respawn are supposed to make the game work on both of those platforms as well without the Cloud..."

Let's break this down Barney style so you understand it:

- He is claiming that 360 and PC don't have access to MS's dedicated servers, which is obviously false, since a Respawn dev confirmed it:

"Titanfall uses the Xbox Live Cloud to run dedicated servers for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox 360."

- Not only does that confirm that the 360 and PC versions will in fact have dedicated servers, but his claim of "somehow Respawn are supposed to make the game work on both of those platforms as well without the Cloud," is also debunked since they are in fact using MS's Cloud for those servers.

- You injecting talk about cloud-based computing, has absolutely nothing to do with discussion. The topic was on dedicated servers (or lack of) which I clearly disproved, with a source.
ITPython  +   533d ago
@Nuke- lol, from what I remember, every exclusive PS3 game has had dedicated servers. Even Resistance Fall of Man had dedicated servers, and it was a PS3 launch title. Games that didn't were some multiplat ones like COD, which ran p2p.

As far as dedicated servers for online games go, Sony's track record speaks for itself. So please, stop trying to use that as XB1 'victory' ammo.

I know you guys are reaching for straws, but at least do some research before claiming victory in a battle you lost years ago. There is absolutely no doubt that if TF was on PS4, PS3 and PC, BOTH PS3 and the PS4 would be getting dedicated servers. Not sure about PC, I know things tend to work differently in that universe as people pride themselves on hosting servers of their own.
ShinMaster  +   533d ago
You can see white outlines with the sharpening filter. You can get the same effect by adjusting the sharpness on you TV anyway.

I don't think it needs it.

There is always a tradeoff when a picture is upscalled. I think it was the better decision to remove the sharpening because it sharpened too much or they could have reduced the effect to have it somewhere between the two.

rainslacker  +   533d ago

Do yourself a favor and go download AVCHD. It's free. Use it to calibrate your TV or monitor, and possibly even go so far as buying a blue filter glasses from thx.com for $5 to adjust the color.

The difference overall from what most people feel looks good compared to the way it's supposed(as best as your TV can support at least) to look is pretty substantial. The default settings on most TV's are way off, and maxing out any setting usually is not a good thing except in some rare cases on sub-par TV's or monitors where you sometimes just have to.

However, even calibrating a crappy TV can change the picture quality dramatically.

No offense intended, and I do realize it is subjective, but frankly, your missing out on a lot of the picture by just doing what you feel looks good. I used to be the same way until I actually gave in and tried it.

It's not just a "pixel counters" thing . Obviously it didnt affect everyone , and some didnt even notice , but for those sub 1080p games , the filter would destroy details actually .

A game like Killer Instinct would see jaggies "smoothed out" , but at the expense of most characters details being erased too .

Here's a little example , and while it's zoomed for demo , it was still apparent for enough people at it's original size .

The sharpening filter is what made games look worse on xbox one even digital foundary said that, it just made the games look more like sub hd than it should.

Now the games look better and is less noticeable to tell if is sub hd thanks to the reduction of jaggies, so this is actually a good thing and it WILL make games look better.

Sharpening may look like the textures 'pop' more,.. but they don't ,.. It just gets rid of all the details in coloration because everything is over-saturated,..

Looks to me like the filter improved image quality which is probobly why it was there in the first place. Where exactly are all the jaggies in the before shots that the filter caused becuase I can't find them. To get rid of jaggies, that I can't even see, the image is washed out and bluured. Looks worse now and I'd say a bad trade off. Why not just put an option in the system controls of the One to turn off the filter if your'e one that prefers a blurry image.

I am Sony all the way...but it really grinds my gears when someone says the least positive thing about the XB1 and they get downvoted to oblivion...I mean really folks?

If you are all Sony all the way. Why are you posting in a Xbox article? If I couldn't stand one company's products, I wouldn't even waste my time reading or posting about them.

I think I read that the sharpening filter would affect current games, but it was more tailored to developers for future games and that is where the biggest impact would be. Is that true?

Love the xbox one just the small nit picking people say about the console why all the hate tell me. it is only the small minority that have nothing better to do and just wine about the X1,PS4 PC what is the point just leave people to enjoy the consoles that they paid for and stop trying to bring people down.

The idea that sharpening adds texture detail (or any other detail) is just plain wrong, what it actually does is take away detail in order to make certain things stand out more.

The fact that Xbox One now looks 'blurry' is a result of the source material output by the console being unmolested and Xbox One's lack of 1080P in most games.

Good thing for a videogame console to provide choices:

jaggy or blurry

720p@60fps or 900p@30fps

Netflix w/ gold or Facebook w/ gold

Man, the PS4 gives no choices, just sharp, amazing 1080p@30fps and multiplayer and apps with no paywall.

I just rolled my eyes hard.

Multiplayer with no paywall, huh? You must be the only one that's able to play on PSN without paying.
