To the surprise of many this week it has been confirmed by Sony’s Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios head Shuhei Yoshida via Twitter. That the Sony PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller’s rear light bar cannot be switched off or dimmed.
Sony has designed the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 rear light to be used in conjunction with the new PlayStation 4 Eye camera and assists the detection of emotion control in a similar way to the PlayStation 3 did with the Move controllers.
Even though Sony has designed their PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller with a light on the rear there may be a possibility in lowlight conditions the DualShock 4 controllers rear light could reflect off your TV screen, as demonstrated in the video below created by Engadget.
Let’s hope that Sony enables a way to at least dim the light on the rear of the Sony PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller even if it can’t be turned off completely.
