You raise a lot of good points about the ps4, exchangeable hard drives are one of them. I do, however, still feel that microsoft took a conservative approach to designing the xbox one and so I feel it would be a safer choice in regards to durability, but sony managed to get by with their ps3's durability which was even famous at one point for cooking eggs so we'll see.
I don't entirely agree with every positive you listed for either console, but on the other hand the list is far from inclusive. There are so many different factors that come into play for both consoles that it would be difficult to list them all.
I'm sorry if it seemed like I was trying to discredit ps4 strengths, that wasn't my intent. Rather I was trying to highlight that there are a lot of different positives about both consoles and people shouldn't strictly be concerned with whether a console is generally running in 720p-900p or 900p-1080p which is where a lot of Xbox one vs ps4 arguments tend to go. I listed the factors that were most important to me when I made my choice about which console to buy now and which to buy later. I also wanted to highlight that personal factors come into play. Using the resolution example, viewing distance and tv size may be a major factor in whether or not the higher resolutions offered by the ps4 are a positive. Some people may opt for the ps4 for its resolution when it ultimately doesn't matter for them which is what I want to avoid. Like I said, I'll be buying both consoles, I just decided the Xbox one would be the better console to buy now and the ps4 the better console to buy next year. Your friends really shouldn't sit so close to those tvs though 0_0. It's bad for eyesight, I know from personal experience X_X.
