Reports last week were that Sony cut the Playstation Eye out of the PS4 package in order to undercut the price of the Xbox One. This may not be the case according to Fergal Gara, Sony Computer Entertainment’s Vice President. Speaking at a Playstation event to TechRadar, Gara claims that the price was set well before their E3 event saying “What I’ll say is, lots of ideas were considered you know, lots of different combinations and of course price was I think fairly clear from a very long time out but you know everything about PS4 is about giving gamers choice.”
“So if you don’t want a camera you don’t have to have a camera. If you want to trade in games, you can trade in games. So there’s been nothing in the whole proposition that is overly restrictive and I think the reaction has proved that people value that.”
This is wholly plausible especially with Sony taking a path of offering a console which gamers want and many may not want to pay extra for something like the Playstation Eye which they’ll not necessarily use. Gara also added to expect more content and information at Gamescom which is next month in Cologne.
