Isn't the issue with DICE for not patching their games?

Good question, was led to believe Microsoft provided a superior experience to that of Sony maybe not so much, one plus with Xbox Live is that it doesn't go offline as PSN is inclined to

You do get 16x texture filtering and improved performance on none officially supported games. But if you want the kind of improvements that Halo 3, GOW 3, Fallout 3, etc. got you have to wait for Microsoft to tweak the games manually and get approval from devs/publishers, which takes time and money. Not every devloper or publisher wants to compete with themselves, either. Hence EA's strong stance against remasters.

The best you can hope for is Microsoft implement an automatic resolution boost in a future update like you get with the 4x boost to emulated OG Xbox games.

Thanks for the explanation , the "native 4K " hype was a letdown as evidence in Battlefield 1 due to the issue of scaling apparently, guess the lesson is buyer beware of skewed marketing

never set your expectations based on marketing... do research.
