I think what most people seem to think is that they'll get some sort of discount if they bundled it, something that does happen quite a bit with pack-ins. What they fail to realize is theres only so much that can be put into a bundle be fore it starts affecting the price.

As for PS+ at least its only for multiplayer rather than locking you out of just about everything. It actually offers quite a lot of value and theres a pretty good chance that streaming games through GaiKai will be added to it as a service.

That's a good point. But raising the price for everyone so that it's cheaper for the minority who want cameras is not ideal.

It's nice how they've done that. I don't want to play online much, and probably won't subscribe. But I can still update and purchase games and demos without paying extra

Your absolutely right, I agree. I was only pointing out why I think people are upset about them not bundling the camera with the console. Most people would rather buy a box with everything they need inside than load their cart up with all the "missing" stuff, and expect a discount to boot. Most people don't realize the bundle isn't aways the cheaper option.

id rather NOT pay for the damn camera that im never going to touch. most gamers probably agree, why pay for something that only a mere 20% of users will actually use. i buy GAMES consoles for games, not some gimick that will only gather dust...

When I say "most people" I'm only talking about the mainstream consumors. Most of us gamers aren't interested but then we're the minority here, otherwise things like kinect wouldn't be as successful as it is. Mainstream consumers are the ones who usually go for these kind of "deals" while those of us on the enthusiast end tend to be a lot more savvy when it comes to these things.
