People are cheering in the main update thread, the sharpening filter for sub-1080p titles is now gone!!! I want this thread to be filled with unsharpened screenshots to celebrate!

Everything is noticeably softer.

I'll try to do some screens.

BTW, the update took 15 minutes at 350-400 kb/s, so I'll say it's near 250 MB as I download 1 GB per hour.

Close-up example to show off the difference!

Just imagine a game that used to look like super compressed shit with artifacts everywhere now only looking sub-1080p.

Man, I still don't know what that means. I'm going to give the three exclusives a go asap and take a look see.

I asked in other thread but does this affect how we set out tv display settings?

You can't look at the exclusives. Ryse didn't use the hardware scaler, Forza is 1080p. Well, you could look at DR3.

Oh, absolutely. Just, like, the images are still upscaled from low resolutions. They just look less...."enhanced" now.

I really have to hold out for that $399.99 model, or it'll be the death of me.

This. Can't believe all the clowns who were going on about how the Xbox graphics "popped" with this garbage filter. The Xbone just got a lot more desirable. Keep it up, MS.

This should be next on their list. The way the Xbone and 360 crush black levels is awful.

This is the best I can do with my Elgato. I'm not really a 'screenshotter'.

There would be a lot of artifacts on the foliage with the sharpening filter on, now that it is no longer in existence it looks a lot smoother.



EDIT: Just to be clear here, the blacks look a bit crushed in the screenshot but they are not on my screen. I blame my capture solution.

Games look softer. The picture is not crisp. Not fuzzy mind you, just not sharp. Like running a game a little below native resolution on your PC screen. Edges of things appear softened.This is good and bad of course, but it is an objective improvement over what it looked like before now. No more dramatic jaggies, hideous black crush, or artifacting issues. It will take a little getting used to, but it's an upgrade for sure.

As I said in the other thread, I probably would have preferred something in between completely off and what it was. But this is better than what it was for sure.

100% sure? I feel like the backgrounds and models in KI that showed crush on my screen yesterday don't now.

It's easy to make your monitor/tv add a bit of sharpness using the settings for it. :)

They will never fix the gamma output on the 360. Too many games built with that limitation in mind that would look absolutely wrong if they update it on a system level.

Ouch. Always so blunt. Though, looking at the DR3 screenshots it still looks... off... but in a different way than before. People shouldn't expect miracles when it's still the same hardware being worked with.
