Dual Shock 4's Light Bar Is "Always On"
Here's something you might not have known about the fancy new Dual Shock 4.
You're likely aware of the Light Bar on the front part of the controller, but you might not realize that unfortunately, it can't be turned off.
A gamer asked Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida if this would be possible on Twitter, and Yoshida replied simply, "no." This would've been a way to save battery life, and it's a little confusing, too. If the PS4 camera isn't mandatory for playing on the system - and Sony has already confirmed that it isn't - then why exactly can't we turn off the Light Bar? Maybe it just doesn't work that way. Oh, and Yoshida also said the reason the PS4 only has USB ports on the front of the system is so you can "easily recharge" the controller.
Well, that makes sense. But this Light Bar business doesn't...does it?
