Your math doesn't add up. PS4 is $400 PSeye is $50. Where is the unaccounted $50?
Not only that, but a PS4 bundle with extra controller, PSeye, 500GB system, and a game is only $500. If that's not a slit to Microsoft's throat I don't know what is.

So next time you see your source, AKA Dave from Worst Buy, tell him he needs to check his facts.

I really wonder why this story is so popular since it's all rumor at best
for one, no one has ever named the sources of info that this story is derived from.
so where is the info coming from?   maybe from someones A$$  since they are full of crap. :-p

Hmph, MS can say all it wants about the awesomeness of the new Kinect and how it's going to change gaming forever (wait, wasn't the original Kinect supposed to do this???)...but I give it a whole year before they offer a Less-Kinect package for $399.  Just watch.

There are not that many people that are bothered with kinect or PSeye... so just leave them out of the box and be done with it...

Nothing great came from 100% inclusion of motion controls this gen (save Flower), and I doubt anything great would have come from 100% spycam inclusion, either. I usually turn off all token motion options because they're annoying, and would have likely done the same with a camera.

Move and Kinect are solutions to a problem no one had. The Wii hype trick only works once, and those gamers are long gone, off into tablet land.

The 'U' in Wii U stands for "Wii Un-impressed Nintendo".
