You're not worth talking to, enjoy your ignorance

Oh the irony XD

 

Atleast you're right that it's not worth talking to me when you argue about something you don't know about. You will end up looking foolish  ;)

 

Yawn

You got all upset because I said it was a blatant annoyance, the useless part you're clinging onto because you have nothing to come back with regards to the original point.  Rather than argue my original point you went on a tangent, hence my returning your straw man bullshit.

If you can't see how a large light reflecting off surfaces will be a annoyance then you must be blind.  Infer I'm in some way foolish again and I'll report you for trolling because frankly that's what you're doing.


You said that i wasn't worth talking to but here you are still talking lol

 

It was basically over but then you stealth editted this comment to add more to it. This comment orignally only said "yawn" lol. So you want more?

 

And i'm pretty sure you already pretty much reported me. I wont say anything about "foolishness" because i'm now not permitted to anymore and will be moderated but you are still allowed to tell me to "enjoy my ignorance" so you don't have to worry ;). 

 

I made a harmless comment asking "and why will it "blatantly" be an annoyance?"(you took that as being "upset" lol) and you replied with --> "You think a USELESS light thats always on is not an annoyance, ok...."

 

#Fail

 

Edit: I expect to be moderated for this comment

Funny because I expect to be permabanned shortly, a warning for trolling the shit out of me is a fucking joke piece of moderation.

I'm pretty sure the light bar tells you which player you are (player 1, player 2, etc.). It also lets you know that the controller is on. Those are 2 uses. FACT!

And I needed a 3 inch bar of light on the back of the controller to tell me that?  No, thats a fact.


No, but I don't understand how that is a problem...

I wouldn't bother with him. It's not like he's gonna buy a PS4 anyway.

 

I've already said I wouldn't buy one at launch, just like my PS3 which I bought 18 months after launch.  My original post was perfectly fair until some decided to try and bait me.  As usual on this site the Sony fans gets away with a tap on the wrist while starting the trouble then those they antagonize get banned.

Seens like it worked, huh? anyway didn't you say the light was useless without the camera? so should the eye come with the system?

Not sure why everyone STILL seems to not realise the light ABSOLUTLY CAN be turned off. It can be done so by devs. In any game the devs can give you an option to turn it off. So said Yoshida. /thread

Dualshock 4's LED light is going to shine on the tv causing glare.  If I rage quit, I'm blaming it on the controller.

Nice thread necromancy.

Again, the PS4 uses four tiny LEDs for the light bar, just like the Dualshock 3, Xbox 360 controller, and one less than the 5 in the Wii U pro controller. LEDs use up almost nothing, even if they are all on at once. It's rumble and bluetooth that kill the battery. The reason the Wii U pro controller's battery life is so incredible is because it only uses 1 rumble motor instead of the two found in the DualShock 3 or Xbox 360 controller.



Desktop: AMD Phenom X4 955, ATI Radeon 7950 :: Laptop: Intel i7-3532QM, ATI Radeon 7670m

Consoles: 3DS XL, PS Vita, Zelda 3DS, PS3 Super Slim, DSi, PSP Go, PS3 Fat, Wii, GameCube, PS2

Now Playing: Metroid Prime 2, Dark Souls, Fallout: New Vegas, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages, Persona 4: Golden

That's kinda too bad. I doubt they are too much of a battery drain. But the bright light could be annoying. Just depends how bring they are. The ones on the 360 are tiny, tiny, like sneeze and you will lose them tiny. The Wii has little LED's too, that you can't turn off.

The flashlight on my phone can blind people (temporally), but no way they would be that bright. Just depends how bright they are, but still something they should think about as it could make the customers happy.



 

Really not sure I see any point of Consol over PC's since Kinect, Wii and other alternative ways to play have been abandoned. 

Top 50 'most fun' game list coming soon!

 

Tell me a funny joke!

Developers can turn it off. Not that it matters anyway - the DS3 lasts, what. 80 hours?



It's stupid, but it's not a big deal.

Actually, the ones complaining about battery life surely don't have the minimal technical knowledge about it. A led has a minimal power drain, the Bluetooth and rumble are what really drains it. And they use a tiny led for that giant bar, just like the Move where a tiny central led illuminated the glowing esphere (yes, just one led. It's a RGB led, DS4 probably uses one too).
