    Bought a PS4 today, very happy apart from the reflection of the LED from the controller on my TV. Talk about distract me from the game or what! Don't fancy sticking electrical tape on my brand new controller so wanted to see if anyone had come across any covers or stickers? Cheers,

    I really must be in the minority here, but it does not distract me at all! I notice it on a pure black screen, but in game cant see it! And my tv screen is glossy not matte ...

    You could always get a sheet of a4 self adhesive paper and print the shape of the light bar, with a picture or text saying "Controller 1" or even your fav game logo, then cut it and stick on :)

    Did a quick search and other people had the same idea I mentioned above, but they used some clear plastic/vinyl stuff instead [​IMG]

    Your tv must be really low or you're holding your controller really high up? I don't see any reflection on my tv

    I only see it when the screen is totally black but don't see/notice anything when a game is running.

    However much you see or don't see it though, it's a pretty ill thought out piece of design though IMHO.

    The centre of my TV is level with my controller when I sit on the sofa opposite. I like to play in the dark so the light shines like a beacon during dark scenes. If I sit on the floor I can't see the reflection. However I did not spend 350 on a console to either sit on the floor or cover the controller in black tape! Thanks to those her took time to answer the question.

    I agree. A simple off button would have surely not been too difficult to consider or implement.
