Microsoft announced that the new headset and the charge and play kit will costs you an additional $50 total. Sony will include their headset and charger at no additional cost to the consumer. I was a big fan of ps2 gaming (mostly madden), then kind of bailed on consoles when we had children. A few years later, my father in-law won a free xbox 360 at a company picnic and that brought me back to gaming. I got enjoyment of seeing my son become a gamer and I rediscovered my passion for gaming and I dove into the Call of Duty franchise. Well, this weekend I decided to go with my gut and preorder the ps4. It just sounds like it has a bit more power, it will save me $150 or more. Also, the PSN is network is $10 less per year than Xbox live. In my opinion, microsoft really screwed up by getting away from the core gaming community and it will cost them in the long run. Yeah, they back tracked after negative feeedback, but it was too little too late for me. I don't want my console to be an entertainment center, I want to play games with my children and enjoy them.
