I think the light should be blue when there is a disc inserted. Both PS2 and PS3 had blue indicating lights when there was a disc inside them. Don’t understand Sony’s logic behind the light indicators on the PS4

ritchtbiscuit (3 years ago)
Do you think there would be any issues with taping over the light strip on the console? I don't care about the lights and the only place I have to put it means it reflects badly in the tv screen.
RaiderRedemption (4 years ago)
I wish that the white light was for boot and blue for on. I have the white ps4 and it looks way better when its booting than when its on and ready.
Wassn Soun (3 years ago)
Yeah, I thought the same way too. If only they have an option for you to modify your system light color. Would be awesome.
