PlayStation’s president of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida has ruled out the possibility of offering PlayStation 4 users an option to disable the DualShock 4’s light bar.

Yoshida was asked by a fan on Twitter if a “future update” may offer the ability to disable the feature, to which he replied: “No.”

Players have previously complained that the light bar on the controller reflects in the television screen while playing and that the controller has a shorter battery life than its older DualShock 3 counterpart.

When it was implied by a Twitter user that turning off the feature would help extend the battery life of the controller, Yoshida replied: “The LEDs do not use much battery.”
