More PlayStation 4 related news from Shuhei Yoshida, Sony's President of Worldwide Studios, as he continues tweeting to eager fans. This time, we learn from Yoshida that the DualShock 4's top light bar cannot be disabled. Rather odd, considering the PlayStation 4's Eye cam (for tracking the controller) is optional.
Some have wondered if this might create certain annoyances, like casting a reflection on the TV, or affect the controller's battery life.

The light bar will do more than just look cool. Since its announcement back in February, Sony has revealed a few ways it's being implemented for actual gameplay integration.
Another Twitter user asked Yoshida why the PS4 won't have any USB ports on the back. The answer? Convenience.
@psychomaniac189 you need to be able to reach them easily to recharge DS4— Shuhei Yoshida (@yosp) July 5, 2013
Back in June, Yoshida also revealed via Twitter that the PlayStation Vita could support Remote Play via Internet connection. That's a plus.
