DualShock 4 Light Bar Can’t Be Switched Off

Posted by at 12:03 pm on July 8, 2013

Players can’t disable the DualShock 4‘s top light bar, regardless of the optional PS4 Eye camera that can track the controller for certain games. The news comes from Twitter and Sony’s president of worldwide studios, Shuhei Yoshida. Twitter users have expressed concern over the light’s possible reflection on a TV in a dark environment.

The light bar on the PS4 was originally pitched as a way to communicate things like player health, back when the PS4 was first announced in February. More tangible ideas were part of the demonstration for The Playroom, a series of tech demos included with every PS4 system. In The Playroom, players use the light bar on the DualShock 4 in conjunction with the PS4 Eye to play Air Hockey and interact with little robot men.
