Eye Toy Not Bundled With Every PS4

Eye Toy Not Bundled With Every PS4
  • On June 2, 2013


Found at the end of the Dualshock 4 video for the PS4 is the phrase “Playstation 4 camera may be required and sold seperately.”

This means no forced camera connection a la kinect and hopefully resulting in a lower priced console. I am certain there will be a large hard drive version with the camera bundled in, however this is good news for those who do not care about motion controls or voice command.

What are your thoughts?

  • This was something that I was suspicious of, and how we missed this information in this old-by-internet-standards video earlier?!

    This means PS Eye games will be few and far between. It’s understandable tho, this way they can price lower, and the fact that they have been pushing Vita streaming lately meant that they wouldn’t want games to focus on motion features provided by the Eye anyway.

    This is good news for me. I’ve never been a fan of “moving” games. I learned my lesson with the “musical games” fad a few years back. I think this will be a good move on Sony’s part too, since people are “freaking” out about Xbox’s camera, and I’ve heard creepy stories of Xbox’s camera will know that you rented a movie, and when another person comes into the room to watch the movie with you, it will charge you for another license since two people are watching now, instead of one.

    Clearly, this is all just rumors, but I wouldn’t put it passed anyone. Sony leaving the camera out of every box is fine with me, and will hopefully keep the price down a bit. I don’t want to move while playing games, I don’t want to talk to my tv, PS3/PS4, I don’t have cable, so I don’t want to change the channel with my voice, I’ve read 1984, I will never be able to prove these cameras aren’t taking continuous pictures/video/audio of me/my house. I just don’t want it.

    i’m personally fine with this, will lower the overall cost of the system, may actually undercut xbone
