Really it has potential to become something.

with so much demand, Sony could probably sell PS4 with Camera, for $399.

What if that is their plan all along......that would be crazy.

HammadTheBeast1110d ago

In a year maybe. But as they've said, and as consumers have spoken, games should be the primary focus. $100 for motion control gimmicks just isn't #worth.

You don't get it... We don't want a camera constantly uploading our activities to the internet and then to the NSA. No thank you.

rdgneoz31110d ago

@JunioRS101 Except the PS Eye doesn't need to be turned on all the time or even connected for the PS4 to work normally...

Also, be less worried about a cam that doesn't need to connected unless you plan on using it and more on your own cell phone...

Wait a minute, I thought nobody wanted a camera in the living room. SMH

As long as it is free and optional, I'll take it.

Death1110d ago

If it's Sony it's good. If it's Microsoft it's prizm and violating gamers rights. If it's Nintendo it doesn't count. You new here or something?

KingWookiee1110d ago

@Death The Kinect wouldn't be a bad if it wasn't mandatory, raising the price of the console, always listening, and to top it off, MS is partnered with the NSA.

Rhythmattic1110d ago

Death.

If its optional its good, (Console operates without it)
if its compulsory its bad. (Console will NOT operate without it)

Even you eliminate the whole NSA spy crap, mandatory Kinect is lame. Will you still be able to play your games if your Kinect stops working or gets broken? I'm gonna assume not until it gets replaced/repaired. If it's still under warranty that's great, but you'll have to go a week or two without your games for M$ to get it back to you. If not you'll have to shell out another $100 so you can play games your already paid for. Both of these scenarios make mandatory Kinect sound that much more awesome don't they? :s)

If your talking to me, I want the option to not buy something that I dont want to use.

Lets say I want a One SKU without K2 and HDMI in ... You know, a gaming system, which the one is very capable of. Is it that hard to imagine?

The K2 is mandatory not because of games, afterall, all the Best 360 games weren't crippled because of non-kinnect support...

its about data mining... Info for sale....
Are those 300k servers are dedicated to gaming ? I dont think so.

Oh, and expect more ads.

mattkelly19911110d ago

All I was saying is that I don't mind getting something for free if I am not forced to use it.

Death1110d ago

It's interesting that no one konws how Kinect will be implimented on the XboxOne, but everyone knows they don't want it. Maybe the best thing to do it wait and see if it adds to the experience and make an educated decision instead of taking a stand without knowing.

Kinnect is compulsory via default and there lies the problem...
That extra $100-$150 I'd rather be put into other "important" components to make a more spec'd gaming console.

Is it that hard to understand?

You might want to Flail your arms to ward of drunk, Major Nelson lead Matrick Zombies, however, many dont.

A $350 One Sku , no kinnect nor HDMI (TV/Cable) input... That'd be good.

Ddouble1110d ago

There's 18 million Kinects out there which no one complained about and it was a success.

They are complaining about Kinect 2 and you know why.

MisfitsInc1110d ago

i might get the PSeye later on, but not at launch

XtraTrstrL1110d ago

It would be really cool if they incorporated some of this into the user interface of the OS for people with the PS4 Eye.

This look liked a hell of a lot of fun at E3 but I never got a chance to go in :/
