You Won’t Be Able to Turn Off Your DS4 Lightbar. Project Morpheus to Blame?
Have you ever gotten really upset with your DS4 Light Bar? Either it was shining on the TV screen while you were in the middle of a game or you just were plain out sick of lights at that time? Sony says that there is great reason for why you can’t turn it off. it all has to do with Project Morpheus.
It’s been a little while now since Sony announced Project Morpheus, their take at a virtual reality headset. But it’s been even longer since they started working on it. In fact, the PS4 and Project Morpheus were in development together, thus creating a certain subtle, and special tie between them.
So what is this special connection between the controller and the headset? We are yet to find out, but we will in time. Senior Designer at SCEE, Jed Ashforth told TechRadar that the VR team at Sony put the light into the controller for good reason.
The tracking light… it was our department that said we need that on. It was for tracking for VR. 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.”
In short, the DS4 was designed for Project Morpheus (or vice versa?)
