It turns out that Sony’s PlayStation 4 is $100 cheaper than Microsoft’s Xbox One, much to the delight of Sony fans. The difference is the PS Eye.
Microsoft basically includes the Kinect with the Xbox One bundle. However according to sources from IGN, prior to E3, Sony had intended to include the PS Eye with the PS4 and were going to charge $500 for the bundle.
So in order to beat Microsoft on pricing, Sony made a last minute decision to remove the PS Eye from the PS4 bundle, and that is how they beat the Xbox One in price. I would wager that most gamers don’t care about that peripheral anyway, so it was a good move.
