Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that the blue line of Playstation 4 console is not a paint but Light which changes colors.
Changes colors??:0 Freaking sweet.
please Mr. Sony let us choose which colour.. i want pink!
Can't wait till I get my Taxes!!!!!
I got my cash ready for the PS4. Can't wait for the 15th.
Maybe it matches the background color
Blue fits perfectly into my room, I'm fine with that :>
Don't pick red - it goes red when there's a problem!
We all know that (when confined a small space that would make it overheat) it turns red in bad circumstances. So, red is reserved. It would be sweet to custom the color. Black + anything usually looks as good as the person wants it. However, something has to be reserved to say, "hey, dumbass, put me in a position to cool me down.
I'm guessing it changes automatically for notifications and stuff like that. For example, download finished, update complete, firmware update available....etc.
Blue, Red, Green and Purple. I assume, since those are the colors of the PS Move lights, as well as the buttons on the controller.
pretty sure red is when you turn your system off or it goes into stand-by, just like the PS3, orange would actually be the overheat or "there's a problem" light.
@Ultimate Master Actually, the LED inside the Move sphere and Dual Shock lightbar is 24bit RGB controlled, so it can be any color, not just blue, red, green and purple... Look at this image (in yellow/orange) http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Y... In fact, even when a game uses, let's say, a green color, it not always the same tone of green, it'll adjust for the room's lighting, as it can output well over 1000 hues, in order to make the orb easier to track. I'm not disagreeing with you, it could as well be only those 4 colors (with red reserved for system alert), but if the PS4 lightline uses the same kind of LED controller (which it may as well do), chances are it'll be just as capable as Move's sphere or DS4's lightbar. That said I don't see it outputing 1000 hues, it't not for tracking nor anything like that. Still, if it indeed let us pick a color and uses a 24big RGB LED controller (both of which are GUESSES, let's not get carried over) I believe they would have some good 20 or so colors available to choose, not just four. Anyway, as good as black looks with any color of light, what I really wanna see (and will never have the balls to make) is black light/UV LED casemod.
I would have liked a blue line that fades to green. This would have kept sony's flagship power/disc indicator. the PSX had power written in blue and open written in green. and well same thing for the PS2 and PS3.
@bishop-br Thanks for the info!
Some great ideas here, I'd love to be able to choose the colour based on my mood at the time, but if It's just Blue that's fine too cus it's my favourite colour :)
I wonder what the different colors indicate?
It would be sweet if the PS4 did this: http://cdn.makeagif.com/med...
I think the red light is for the PS4 when it overheats. I saw videos of it. Not just one. But 3 videos.
been paid off in full for over 3 weeks now.. only 11 more days and no college classes on Fridays... gonna be a long weekend.
I paid for mines June 13 lol
I booked off , Monday Tuesday and Wednesday . 5 days off from the day I pick it up, wouhou !!
same here trying to finish my project early so i can have all weekened to game.
While you may have an extra day off, I bet your weekend won't be long. It'll be Monday before you know it :p
same story as me bro lol
That's old news. What I want to know is if it really goes across the entire console, or not. Edit: I already found out the answer: It does not go all the way across. Only two thirds.
Holy Shit! I remember In an older post I suggested if this could happen with the "led light" on the face of the ps4. 4 colors that represented each of the symbols on the face buttons of the control-pad. Green- triangle Red- circle blue- X pink- square Now this latest twitter, conformation! Damn! I'm good!
Red for mwee
I was playing a PS4 kiosk and the line bar thingy on the consolewas lit up white.
I'm guessing it's an led array similar to the one in the DS4. You could literally pick a color to match if you're customizing the PS4.
Can we turn it off?
Yes, if you turn it off. Edit: I'd advise not doing it while you're playing, though.
I hope so I dont want this light up in dark so all I see is that damn light
looks so damn sexy!!!! Even the PS3 launch fatty looks sexy, the slim doesn't look as good, and the new super slim? lets just say its damn FUGLY!!! i LOVE SONY HARDWARE! i always by Sony, smart phone, hdtv, surround amplifier, EVERYTHING
@badboy... you can do what I did, SONY store with Sony credit card no interest for ONE year!! only going to pay $35 dollars a month! sweet
i have a feeling red will be available still but if theres an error, it will blink on and off. id like it to be red! lol
You devilish black creature, i already can see it blinking your lights at night to wake me up and make me play you, lol
Yeah blue and red. Guess what the red is for?
Let's just hope it doesn't change to yellow or red..... D:
I'm pretty sure the color of the light on the system will be tied into the color that is on the controller
Yeah it does ,it turns red when it overheats!!
Who didn't know this? Also, this will be one the first things to go when the PS4 gets a redesign. We all know it.. Lol
Aside from Blue, Yellow and Red, any other choiceS?
I would hope it's the standard PS colors. Red=off, green=on, blue=disc in.
but where is the pink for square button!!! i must have pink!!! pink = playing digital game, no disc in?? =D!! the lucky person who get's to be Player 4 has a pink light on the DualShock4
And yellow means "uh oh". jk Greatness Awaits.
Damn! I was just wishing if we could change the color on the console! O___O My God this is GREAT! I want yellow PLEAAAAASEEE!!!
I've seen it in white.
id imagine it would have all the colours of which the move/ds4 controller can use.
just imagine like the original ps3 color theme that change every month...this will be nice
Yoshida twitter avi goes too hard
Really Shu? Ive been trying to get this guy to answer my tweets for six months now.
I was sooo happy when shu answer my tweet
Me too. And I don't want to downplay anyone else's information seeking, but I have been asking important things over the months like do I have to download the OS manually if I switch the disk drive on day 1, can I play video files off my external drive, does the system still use the same encryption on the disk like with PS3, will we get dynamic themes later, etc.
Exactly what I was getting at, seems like he conveniently only answers the easy questions.
Omg that's amazing. I wasn't expecting that. Would be cool if we could sync it to the beat of music.
use these instead --> http://www.youtube.com/watc... =D!!
Would be cool if it's customizable... But I think he just means that it changes colors according to how the PS4 is running.
Shu is a pimp.
I first saw it at 46 seconds on this vid thought it was awesome http://www.youtube.com/watc...
So it's the light is white when in remote play? (at least it seems that way) That's cool!
Sweet now we can hack it and get it to display any color I want sweet
Your going to hack a console so it changes to any colour u want seriously 350 quid for that boy u need help. Why not strip it and mod it http://i1046.photobucket.co...
If it turns yellow that means turn it off and give it a break. If it turns red it will cut off on its own. I'm guessing that's how it might go.
So excited for the PS4!
One colors... Pfff... I hope it can change color randomly giving out a spectrum of colors to behold. The PS4 would be then called Rainbow Edition. Nice...
If it has three led diodes like the DS4 does, I'm pretty sure it can shine any color in the rainbow.
I am sooo ready for this!
how many colors did move had?
Explains the red line?
The thin red line. Sony's rrod
