PS4: Controller lights flashing when fish is biting

Recommended Posts

Well I guess the title says it all.. I was wondering yesterday that it might be a cool feature to make use of the PS4 controller lights. We already have the "ding" sound when a fish is biting, and we do have controller vibrations when it's nibbling, and taking off. I usually put the controller on my legs when I'm bobber fishing for pike in Michigan, while I'm doing something else, just to get notified of action on my rod. I just thought it might be a cool additional feature to make use of the lights, and have them flashing when a fish is nibbling / taking off with the bait. Especially with the multi-rod feature that's coming. It might be cool to give each rod a colour, and then have the corresponding colour flash on your controller, when there's action on it.

GTA V makes some great use of those features, like playing the phone calls through your controller's speakers, changing the colour of the lights – depending on what character you're playing, and having the lights flash red and blue, when the police is chasing you.

Of course, one should be able to de-activate that feature, in order to not annoy people that don't like it. But since I'm mostly fishing in the evenings, I just thought it would be a nice feature for the future. Esp. for bobber fishing.
