Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that players won’t be able to turn off the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 Light Bar.
The bar is used by the PlayStation 4 camera to detect motion controls and can change color during a game, if the developer wishes it to. Many players have been wondering if this feature could be disabled in order to save the controller’s battery power, turns out it can’t.
