DUALSHOCK 4 LIGHT BAR UPDATE

controller_01

Recently we reported that Shuhei Yoshida had rejected the idea that the light bar on the DualShock 4 could be disabled by users in order to extend their battery life. Yoshida simply replied ‘no’ and it seemed we would all have to make do with fairly minimal battery life or buy an accessory to extend it which you can read about here.

However Yoshida replied to a tweet yesterday saying that offering an option to dim the brightness of the LED ‘sounds reasonable’.

With the vast majority of games not making use of the PS camera, there’s no denying that the light bar is nothing more than a power consuming fa├žade for most titles. This option would help to improve the battery life that bit further, and if you’re gaming every day or you only play once in a while, not having to recharge as often is always a benefit.

  1. figure Sony would fix this since so many are whining about it. I personally game from my recliner with my laptop on the arm of my recliner when my controller goes to start dying I simply plug it in to my laptop and keep playing while its charging.
