Pretty much what I meant with my comment. To elaborate, theoretically the XSX should be able to perform better from a hardware perspective but even if the developers were to go for perfect parity, the XSX should not have those issues and the missing RT effects. Hence the "at least as well".I don't read the phrasing of "similar" and "on par" as being different in any substantial way, so I'm going to go ahead and disagree with your claims of mischaracterization.
Even saying "at least as well" is just another way of saying they should at least be equal (like the other 95% of multiplat games out there), which is not all that different from saying they should perform similarly.
BUT if I misread what you were intending to say, then I do apologize.
I don't understand why people just can't deal with it and feel personally attacked. I also think the PS5 is by far the console to get since, you know, it has exclusive games.
