PS4 was originally more expensive than Xbox One

IGN have revealed that Sony originally planned to sell the PS4 for around $500 , but abandoned plans to include a camera with every unit to bring price down below Microsoft’s Xbox One.

According to their sources, in the months leading up to E3, Sony decided against a PlayStation Eye camera, thus bringing the price down to $400.

Sony supposedly did this quietly, telling retail partners only about the removal of the camera and not mentioning the lower price to keep Microsoft in the dark.

The PlayStation Eye cameras, meanwhile, will be sold separately for $60.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
