Games "Sony gave the PS4 50% more raw shader performance, plain and simple (768 SPs @ 800MHz vs. 1152 SPs & 800MHz). Unlike last generation, you don't need to be some sort of Jedi to extract the PS4's potential here. The Xbox One and PS4 architectures are quite similar, Sony just has more hardware under the hood. We’ll have to wait and see how this hardware delta gets exposed in games over time, but the gap is definitely there. The funny thing about game consoles is that it’s usually the lowest common denominator that determines the bulk of the experience across all platforms. On the plus side, the Xbox One should enjoy better power/thermal characteristics compared to the PlayStation 4. Even compared to the Xbox 360 we should see improvement in many use cases thanks to modern power management techniques." AnandTech does its usual in-depth thing.

I'm sorry, but a re-install is the same thing as installing a used game.

Not in the XBO-case: when you install the game for the first time it's tied to your account. If you remove the game from the system it'll still remain tied to it and therefore you could just re-install it without paying a fee. With a used game, however, you have to re-associate the game to your own account. That's where the difference comes in.

Hoe is this okay? More importantly ... how on earth coulf you, or anyone, agree with that limitation?

Please, do point to where I said that is okay or that I agree with such a limitation? I merely stated facts as-is, I didn't state my stance on it at all. Less frothing at the mouth and more reading-comprehension, please.
