While Sony’s winning friends for its $399 PS4 pricetag, one small detail has been flying under the radar. The PlayStation Eye accessory, which is needed to use the Move functionality built into the new DualShock 4 controller, will be an additional accessory that costs $59 (around R600). Microsoft will include a Kinect sensor with every Xbox, which is one the reasons it has a $100 higher retail price compared to Sony’s console.

Those hoping to play any Move-enabled games should take heed, the first title you buy might end up being twice the price if you still need to pick up a Move camera.

Eleven years ago Christo started writing about technology for one of South Africa's (then) leading computer magazines. His first review? A Samsung LCD monitor. Hey, it was hot news, back then. Nowadays he gets more excited about photography, cars, game consoles, and faster internet connections. He's sort of an Apple fan, but will take any opportunity to remind you about his Windows-powered home theatre PC and desire to own a vanilla Android tablet.   Currently uses: Apple 13-inch Macbook Pro with Retina Display, Apple iPhone 5, Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000, Audiofly AF78 Earphones, Xbox 360, Nikon D50.
