    Shuhei Yoshida tweeted that Sony has no plans on disabling the lightbar on PS4 controllers for games that do NOT use it. While gamers have reported it being "annoying", he further replied stating that the LEDs don't really drain much battery from controller.

    As we wait for the PlayStation 4 firmware update to add Pulse Elite headset support (and hopefully more) likely some time this month, Shuhei Yoshida was once again his active self on Twitter, giving a patented one word answer.


    This specific answer did have quite a bit of weight to, with the Sony Worldwide Studios President being asked, “Will a future update disable the [DualShock 4] light bar for games that don’t use the light?” He replied with, “No.”


    When he was asked a similar question about being able to turn off the light bar last month, Shuhei said, “I doubt it,” so it seems he’s become more definite. On the bright side, he did mention how he’d like the option to dim the light bar, so maybe there’s hope for that?

    How do you guys feel about the PS4 controller light bar? Do you find it annoying or is it not really an issue?

      I think Shuhei Yoshida is being dishonest about the LED's not taking much battery life, they clearly are.

      I agree, 3d bluray is much higher on the list (IMHO top of the list) for the new firmware, but how hard can it be to make it optional to have the LED on/off.. that shouldn't take that much time/effort..

      I don't think they should be turned off just dimmed

      I agree as well. Also, I am still waiting for mp3 support and DLNA media streaming.
