One of the biggest differences between the PS4 and the Xbox One is that the latter includes the Kinect camera, where the former includes no camera at all. But, Sony did consider selling the PS4 with a camera for $400, according to a report by the Australian Business Spectator.

Sony found an issue with losing too much money integrating a camera into the PS4 setup, with Sony Computer Entertainment President and Group CEO, Andy House, telling Business Spectator that "the vast majority of the audience that we speak to tells us that their primary wish is for the full controller interface and there's not necessarily a huge emphasis being placed on camera interaction."

 

So it seems that Sony thinks its consumers aren't going to be missing out on too much without the camera, and I tend to agree.
