Changes colors??:0 Freaking sweet.

JimmyLmao2822d ago

badboy7762822d ago

Can't wait till I get my Taxes!!!!!

cleft52822d ago

I got my cash ready for the PS4. Can't wait for the 15th.

edgeofsins2822d ago

Maybe it matches the background color

ZodTheRipper2822d ago

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

devwan2822d ago

Don't pick red - it goes red when there's a problem!

Prime1572822d 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.

GraveLord2821d ago

I'm guessing it changes automatically for notifications and stuff like that.

For example, download finished, update complete, firmware update available....etc.

UltimateMaster2821d ago (Edited 2821d 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.

sobekflakmonkey2821d ago (Edited 2821d ago )

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.

UltimateMaster2821d ago

Thanks for the info!

UnholyLight2821d 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 :)

mewhy322821d ago

I wonder what the different colors indicate?

ohiostatesman2821d 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.

Tsar4ever012822d ago (Edited 2822d 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!

mickaelmc2822d ago

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

kingPoS2822d 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.

Hicken2822d ago (Edited 2822d ago )

Yes, if you turn it off.

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

RE_L_MAYER2821d ago

I hope so I dont want this light up in dark so all I see is that damn light

LonDonE2822d ago

RedSoakedSponge2821d ago

id like it to be red! lol

sigfredod2821d ago

You devilish black creature, i already can see it blinking your lights at night to wake me up and make me play you, lol

gamer20132821d ago

Yeah blue and red. Guess what the red is for?

Lwhit62821d ago

Let's just hope it doesn't change to yellow or red..... D:

IRON883 2821d ago

I'm pretty sure the color of the light on the system will be tied into the color that is on the controller

LAYLOW2821d ago

Yeah it does ,it turns red when it overheats!!

xtremeimport2821d ago

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..

ironfist922822d ago (Edited 2822d ago )

Aside from Blue, Yellow and Red, any other choiceS?

dumahim2822d ago

I would hope it's the standard PS colors. Red=off, green=on, blue=disc in.

JimmyLmao2822d ago (Edited 2822d ago )

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

mickaelmc2822d ago

And yellow means "uh oh".
Greatness Awaits.

Studio-YaMi2822d ago

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!!!

Triella2822d ago

RedSoakedSponge2821d ago

Yoshida twitter avi goes too hard

Lboogieskells2822d ago

Really Shu? Ive been trying to get this guy to answer my tweets for six months now.

neocores2822d ago

I was sooo happy when shu answer my tweet

KwietStorm_BLM2822d 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.

Lboogieskells2822d ago

Exactly what I was getting at, seems like he conveniently only answers the easy questions.
