This reinforces to me that this feature is definitely not working as intended.
Meanwhile... no news from Sony?
The last of us HUD is so minimal that it does not trigger the dimming i feel.
The HUD is also not always showing in the last of us.
This would be the same reason that when you turn off the HUD in God of War, the dimming issue is not there either, but when the HUD is on the dimming is constantly activating every minute.
It is also interesting that i found no dimming in God of War in the early hours, it seems that the HUD becoming more filled with features (longer health and Rage bars, Atreus abillities, res stone) suddenly makes it jump to dimming territory along the way.
I feel like HUDs with a certain transparancy also trigger this dimming much less if at all.
As for news from Sony, I have the feeling that all we can do is wait for future firmware and hope the next one fixes this problem.
If it does not, wait again for the next firmware.
It is a very uncomfortable position we find ourselves in, completely at the mercy of the Sony engineers, hoping our issue is the next one they tackle.
