Sooo all console games have full mandatory installs...

What's the distinction games consoles have from PC now? I remember when there was a HUGE gulf now there is almost nothing between them except you pay more and get less. These are just PC games with a butt-load of restrictions and they cost about 50% more. And you have to pay a subscription fee to play online, and there is only one store with no competitor on same platform.
