Not sure if the world changed by now, but on gen 7 there were plenty of comparison of PS3 and X360 games even when the difference was minute.

I'm not referring to the number of comparisons, but how people reacted to them. There may be even more comparisons than ever next generation, even if the difference is smaller than ever, because companies like Digital Foundry do it for a living.

It's one thing to have to look for a specific moment in a 15 minute video, as opposed to being able to copy/paste headlines like "Xbox One version runs at 720p". Because of that, it was meme-able low hanging fruit for console wars.

If you have to find a specific tree in a game, it's like having to explain a joke. It loses impact.
But this situation made it easier for people to be loud and obnoxious.

Perhaps outside of forum it will be less discussed or compared.

But in here the better versions of X360 were largely discussed, mainly because PS3 was supposed to be the stronger console.

Still I do agree with you on your point, I do expect even less difference than this gen, they being less noticeable and less care being given by most pub and common gamer. Just here and similar places we will be warring over small details =]
