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.

The facts in the real world is that it doesn't cost anything to re-install a game while there's a fee for installing a purchased second-hand game. This is regardless of your opinion that they're the same.


It is the same thing. There is no cost in labour, material or services to the developer or the distributor of the software/game.
Do you pay a car manufacturer for the privilege of buying a second hand car?

You seem to have a bit of that problem yourself.


I can see how i may come across, and i'll take that one.

Wow, a wonderful argument that has no relation at all to the discussion at hand.


It does bear a relation to the discussion at hand.
Laws/regulations follow the opinion of the general public.
Once everyone agrees that installing a copy of a second hand game is something you should pay the developer and/or distributor for, then it'll all be normal, and soon become law

I'm going to be gracious and not say what you come across as.


I don't think i've accused anyone of frothing at the mouth, either.
