I think they both will.
Sony will only have one with an Eyetoy bundle.
Microsoft will have one in every box. Some type of party game to show off the new Kinect tech.

I wish it was like the old systems when it was something good. Mario and Sonic? I just think they are too greedy these days to give you a AAA product with every system.

Man, I remember when pack in games were the norm. I got my GBA with Pokemon Silver, and my Gamecube with Mario Kart Double Dash. Good times, good times.

I disagree.  Sony's already got F2P games available at launch and I suspect MS will too.

Pack-ins are the norm as generations develop, just not with launch SKUs.

I doubt either will have a pack in unless they are camera related, however, it would be awesome to see SOCOM packaged with the PS4 and Killer Instinct packaged with the X1... :P won't happen, but it would be awesome.

E3 is what will convince me to get one of the three. Will it be Nintendo? X1? PS4? Stay tuned as I will make a thread for it and I know everyone's dying of anticipation to know who I go with next gen.

It will knock the price up, so I'm okay with no pack in game.

The Xbone for instance already is packing in Kinect 2 HD One or whatever they call it. I already don't like the idea of paying for that thing. I feel the same if the Eyetoy 3 is included.

I did read that Sony will be having SIX free to play online games for PS4 at launch, for those consumers that have online.

DC Universe Online, War Thunder, Blacklight: Retribution, Dust514, SOEs Massive FPS Planetside 2, and Digital Extremes co-op shoot em up ninja MMO Warframe.

I really thought at the Sony press conference three months ago that they said the PS Eye is included in the box for every PS4.

Dear TC, please stop tarring Sony and Nintendo with the same Xbone brush, you know nothing.

I meant the good ole fashioned retail disc games. Of course I wrote this last night a bit buzzed and it did not occur to me the XB1 had to be online to play the damn thing. Good Lord Sony is loaded with F2P on launch. Bravo to them.

Well no doubt there will be F2P games on the Xbox (already is on the PS4) 360 came with a pack-in game too, so I hope the next consoles do.

There is extreme irony in being bothered by X1 being online then praising sony for launching with F2P games. Good luck in trying to play your massively multiplayer ONLINE game without being online.

Not ironic at all, considering F2P MMO are by nature, online only. You should be able to play Killzone or Infamous single player offline just fine when tired of MMO.
