Ever since the console’s release in November, both fans and professionals in the industry have criticized the Xbox One for failing to match the visual fidelity of the PS4. It seems now that Xbox One owners can rest assured knowing that their gaming platform is quickly catching up to Sony’s.
Speaking with Xbox head Phil Spencer, journalist Geoff Keighley reported that Bungie will get their upcoming title, Destiny, to 1080p and 30fps. Spencer attributed this graphical increase to the decision to remove the Kinect from the bundle and free up some of the console’s graphical bandwith.
After @xboxp3 interview I've been asking devs about impact of new Xbox sdk on perf. Bungie says it will get Destiny to 1080p/30fps on XB1.

There is no info regarding what graphical quality Bungie was aiming for before the Xbox update so it is hard to say how significant the visual upgrade is.
Destiny is set for release on September 9th for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
