The PlayStation 4's recent 1.7 firmware update allowed users to dim the controller's light bar, but Sony refuses to allow this light to be turned off completely. Apparently, there is a method to the madness.
Senior designer Jed Ashforth told TechRadar that the light bar was designed for VR implementation in the future.
"The tracking light - it was our department that said we need that on. It was for tracking for VR," he explained. “And when all these things were coming out six months ago and everyone was going 'it's reflecting in my TV,' we were going 'oh no' because we couldn't tell anyone what it was for."
So Project Morpheus was in the works for who knows how long now. I'm still not keen on the whole VR thing, but it's nice to know at least Sony has a reasoning behind the light bar other than SIXAXIS controls. I honestly like the light bar, but I know it kills my controller's battery.
