Submission + - Sony Couldn't Afford To Bundle Its Camera With The PS4 (

jfruh writes: The Playstation Camera, Sony's answer to Microsoft's Kinect, was originally planned to come bundled with the PS4, but Sony now admits why that isn't happening: they simply couldn't afford it. The company was very determined to get the PS4 on shelves at a $399 price point. Even without the camera, they'll be losing $60 on every PS4 sale. Gamers who really want to use the camera controller can shell out extra for it.
