edgeofsins3914d ago

Maybe it matches the background color

ZodTheRipper3914d ago

Blue fits perfectly into my room, I'm fine with that :>

devwan3914d ago

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)

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.

UltimateMaster3914d ago

Thanks for the info!

UnholyLight3914d 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 :)

mewhy323914d ago

I wonder what the different colors indicate?

ohiostatesman3913d ago

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

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.

Tsar4ever013914d ago (Edited 3914d ago )

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!

mickaelmc3914d ago

I was playing a PS4 kiosk and the line bar thingy on the consolewas lit up white.

kingPoS3914d 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.
