DualShock 4 Light Bar is Always-On. Can't be turned off to save battery power.
 

 
You won't be able to turn off the light bar on the DualShock 4 controller to save battery power, according to Sony's Worldwide Studio boss.

Taking to his visit this link Twitter, Shuhei Yoshida confirmed that the light bar would always be on despite the fact that it's largely useless without the additional PlayStation Camera peripheral.

Seeing as Sony originally intended to bundle the PlayStation Camera in with every PlayStation 4, there wouldn't have been a need to turn the light bar off. While Sony has changed its mind on the inclusion of the Camera though, it seems it won't be backing down on this one despite the fact it'll drain the battery quicker and possibly reflect off your screen.

What do you reckon, do you think Sony should offer an option to turn the light bar off or at least dim it, or doesn't it bother you? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

That's pretty dumb honestly, especially since most people probably won't even get the camera, which is when it would be most effective.

Eff this always on spy sh*t.

I'm saying though, when I turn off my controller, all the lights on it go black...off.

But if I turn off the PS4 console, light stays on?
What?

Its still gonna shut off with the system...I don't see the big deal...if you game in a well lit area as suggested you won't even notice the sh*t
its not even about that tho...the fact that u cant turn it off means the battery will
drain a hell of alot quicker

No big deal.

Just unplug if it's really a problem for you.

Same can be said for you X1 Kinect paranoid people.
Don't want it "always on" or whatever, just unplug like the Matrix.

IT IS THE CONTROLLER! the LED light cant be turned off on the controller...which
will use more power and cause the controllers battery to drain alot quicker

which means more recharging

and then more recharging will eventually lead to this

So why did you tell me to stop trolling?
O.K.

If thats the case, my first reply to this stands.

I doubt it'll be that much of a drain on the battery...what it'll last 7.5 hours instead of 8?
with that bright a.ss light??? I highly doubt that

turning that light off would probably increase the battery life by about 50%

These aren't some old school high wattage lights in there. We're talking LEDs in there that take 1-5 watts to light up. It won't drain the battery that quick.
