Most people purchasing the PS4 will not buy a Camera, so it's not part of the price.

If you want a console with a Camera in your area, the Xboxone will be a better value, but there's no option to purchase without, so the majority of people are losing value on the machine.

Sony Also always looked at accessories are accessories.

Similar in Aus too. The price gouging by retailers we are subject to is disgraceful.

Around here the camera is $60 so $399+$60 is still cheaper.

Even if they both have the same price, PS4 is still cheaper since it's hardware is more powerful.

You're confusing price with value, Value is also objective, Price isn't, but the PS4 is cheaper than the Xbone, because of the Kinect being a required part of the bundle.

I still don't own a PS4 camera and my Kinect isn't even plugged in (won't freaking work in NZ, even though I have an English accent ffs). So, yes, the PS4 was cheaper for me and I'd imagine most people.

PS: Where in NZ are you?
