Well i am pretty sure this is more desired than a creepy camera.

Well it's that camera that makes the big significance between PS4 and Xbox One and why that camera has the better advantage of what Sony's statement deem as the "x factor":

"Sony is well aware that success with this generation has less to do with power and more to do with finding ways to bridge the gap between hardcore gamers and the general population.".

Listen to every breath you take by the police. Thats how creepy that camera is.

If that's how you see it, then that is creepy.

Personally I don't care at all about the social media aspect. Just want their AAA first party games and to play the console multiplats on the more powerful hardware.

Yep same here. Great for those that enjoy this though.

If social media is Sony's X-factor then I fear for the other consoles. It'll take out the other consoles SOLO with only 1 meter. It's THAT broke. Visual representation:

Sony's X factor is price.
