Since it was unveiled, the light bar found on PlayStation 4’s DualShock controller has been an area of interest to many enthusiasts. This interest even gained traction after it was revealed that it wouldn’t come bundled with the camera.

Some users thought that the console’s light bar is distracting, while others think that it will eat up the controller’s battery. However, Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida said in a Twitter update that users cannot turn off DualShock 4’s light bar. But it was later revealed that the option is available to game developers.


Whether such option will become available to all DualShock 4 users or not remains to be seen. Nevertheless, it shouldn’t be such a difficult feature to implement.
