Not only the price difference. Before Sony dropped it, the whole Xbox One and PS4 userbase was going to have a camera. Functions in game likely would have been similar on both consoles for nearly all multiplats.

Now, likely more than half the userbase won't have a camera, so devs aren't likely to utilize it. That means they won't bother creating good Kinect stuff if PS4 doesn't do it out of the box. Combined with Xbox One already taking longer to develop for, devs won't have time to create good Kinect stuff, especially if it won't be a feature utilized on a platform with a higher userbase.

So in short, the removal of the camera got Sony to $399 and hurt the overall Xbox One future features with Kinect as well.

I think what really hurt MS most is the fact that right out of the gate SONY announced it was an OPTION, never forced... IF they considered to force it upon us, they decided against that before telling us. Which is totally fine as they were deciding what to do with their console.
When MS decided to NOT force it upon us... they had already told us WE NEEDED IT beforehand...
and it seemed rather reactive than preemptive... which obviously hurt them as all the other 180s they did.

Both cameras serve the same purpose although I do think the Kinect seems to be a bit more tech conducive than the eye.
