To the people crying over this non-issue... Is the light on the controller smarter than you?

 

Play with the controller in your lap, or use towel over your hands, or a pillow in front, kick your legs up so they block the light, play with the controller angling down while you lean forward, or put the bottom of your HDTV higher than how you hold your controller.

 

Even a piece of cardboard with a piece of tape will work.

But see, that would take effort Smiley Very Happy

 

Now you're going to see a bunch of comments like "I just paid $400 for this system, I shouldn't have to do extra things to get rid of an annoyance!"

Smiley Very Happy Tell me about it. Can you believe that there are actually some people who don't want tape and cardboard on their controller? The nerve of some people. When will these silly consumers learn their place? Smiley Very Happy

That wasn't the only option though.

 

I play in my basement. It's cold. So I usually have a blanket or something on.

 

Guess where my controller is? Under the blanket.

 

Also, if I don't have something covering me, the way I sit usually has my controller pointing majority downward.

 

So any light wouldn't glare up at the TV anyway.

 

Unless you have some low TV stand and for some reason enjoy pointing your controller at the screen, it's not going to be all that visible.

I am still going to buy the ps4 anyway because it's going to be badass, however, I do hope they have the option of turning the light bar off....I'm not going to complain if they don't change it, but i will be a little annoyed

It's not a problem for most of us who don't hold our controller like this:

Weird, posts are gone... Anyways, who doesn't play with the controller in their lap? Do you guys really hold the controller like the guy did in that picture? 

 

The light on the controller is angled down, and with the controller in your lap the light will not show on your HDTV, you also shouldn't have your HDTV's placement so low anyways

 

What people cry over is hilarious
