Similar to Windows 8 notifications?
In IGN’s video review for the PlayStation 4 version of FIFA 14, a rather interesting observation was made, which showcased just how the console informs you that the battery life of your DualShock 4 is running low.
A notification appears on the upper right of the screen with the user’s name and is slightly transparent. Notifications about Trophy unlocks apparently happen on the upper right side of the display, and the assumption is that message notifications will also be on the upper right. It’s interesting because Windows 8 handles notifications in a similar manner, where recent messages and such are displayed in the upper right corner.
Nonetheless, it’s a pretty interesting improvement. It would also seem that there would be a colour indicator – to match the lightbar of the controller in question – so you’ll know which controller by colour needs to be recharged. The PlayStation 4 will launch on November 15 in North America, with a November 29th release in Europe. What are your thoughts on this minor but still revealing development?
