Don't pick red - it goes red when there's a problem!
Prime157  +   267d ago
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.
GraveLord  +   267d ago
I'm guessing it changes automatically for notifications and stuff like that.

For example, download finished, update complete, firmware update available....etc.
UltimateMaster  +   267d ago
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.

Thanks for the info!
UnholyLight  +   266d ago
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 :)
mewhy32  +   266d ago
I wonder what the different colors indicate?
darthv72  +   266d ago
It would be sweet if the PS4 did this:

I think the red light is for the PS4 when it overheats. I saw videos of it. Not just one. But 3 videos.

colonel179  +   267d ago
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!

I was playing a PS4 kiosk and the line bar thingy on the consolewas lit up white.
kingPoS  +   267d ago
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.
Koyes  +   267d ago
Can we turn it off?
Hicken  +   267d ago
Yes, if you turn it off.

Edit: I'd advise not doing it while you're playing, though.

KwietStorm  +   267d ago
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.

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.

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.

Sell it to gamestop,on the weekend before the ps4 drops gamestop is going to give a 50% bonus trade 60% with the pro card.
i'm guessing your trying to buy a ps4 right?
first1NFANTRY  +   267d ago
that's correct bro. only thing is i'm in Australia and we don't have a gamestop.

edit: well there's an ebgames in almost every suburb which is the equivalent of gamestop i guess but they rip you off when you trade in your games.

the retail price of ps4 here is $540.

Sadist3  +   267d ago
You know people are idiots when they are praising the fact that a console has a light that changes colors. Wow, so awesome. When I play my PS4, I think I'll be watching Battlefield on my screen, not some freaking blue light on the console. But these fanboys are like zombies, one track minds that enjoy anything that has to do with Playstation. If Sony announced they put a lightening bolt on the rear of the PS4, idiots on this site would say things like "yeah I love Sony!" or "I trust Sony,"

this site is filled with idiots for real
there is no confirmation that you can change the colors manually

the only thing his tweet says was "changes color"
wtf

his posts have been only 2 worded vague ass posts and you people just take it and run with it as gosple

i will be getting the ps4 on nov 15
but my god...some of you guys are really gullible
xHeavYx  +   267d ago
Takes one to know one, right?
bomboclaat_gamer  +   266d ago
im pretty sure the different lights will only be indicators for certain modes that the ps4 will be in

for example:
red = overheating
blue = normal
yellow = some mother board error

and so on

just like dell computers which output number codes to specify the type of error the computer system has

when the time comes and you realize that you cant change colors manually, you'll see that you're just a gullible idiot

anyway..cant wait for next week to get my ps4, and when i do my taxes ill be getting the xbox one

:)
