Bu bu but muh pop.

What will lems do now after pretending for four months that BF4 looked better on the Bone?

@GrenadeLauncher: bu bu but BF4 does look better on the Xbox One. Crushed blacks and very more sharper than PS4 verzion

The games that use the scaled look noticeably better but hey lets turn positive X1 news into a cow circle jerk. GS has become disgusting

Lems are a joke.

Positive news for the bone and cows still find a a way to be douche bags.

Hirai, your a disgusting loser and one of the reasons GS is a joke. Get away from your circle jerks and.play your PS, or you bored already

Lems are like Apple fanboys. They're just technology impaired and usually ignorant about everything.

And that sharpness is because of the sharpener, you doughnut. Now what?

Positive news for lemms amounts to Microsoft fixing their idiot mistakes.

@LanceSSJ: and this is why lems are a joke.

Now it looks even more like vaseline smeared onscreen.

DH did this over a month ago with their update to KI. Everyone on the DH forums noticed it right away because they thought some of the "pop" was missing but if your TV is set up properly, it actually looks better. Now the supposed "crushed blacks" are gone and you could see every detail in KI. Anyways, good news for X1 owners I guess...depends if you like it or not. It took me a little to adjust to KI after the update but now I prefer it like this.

Good move, the cleaner image is a big benefit, AA looks a bit funky though.

Good stuff, hopefully they fix the limited and full options too, as DR3 looks a total mess.

I am definitely keeping an eye on the people who praised the Xbox scaler and said that it added better textures LOL. Lord almighty will the damage control to now 'seem like' they see a difference will suddenly rear its ugly head.

Will this also remove those awful crushed blacks too?

Does anyone here actually play games, or just bitch about inanimate pieces of plastic that they don't own?
