Kinect is one of Xbox One's key advantages when compared to PlayStation 4. While Sony already have a comparable peripheral, the Eye Camera, the company decided not to bundle it with the console. And their justification is simple: gamers don't really want that type of motion control.
"The vast majority of the audience that we speak to tells us that their primary wish is for the full controller interface," explained Andrew House, CEO of Sony's games business.
Speaking to Australian business site Business Spectator, House noted that "there's not necessarily a huge emphasis being placed on camera interaction" among hardcore gamers who form the majority of the console's early adopters.
PlayStation 4 will debut on November 15th, 2013 in North America and November 29th, 2013 in Europe, with other territories to follow.
