Awesome, when you get it connect the controller directly to the console and try to start a PS5 shooter. Let us know if the game will reject the controller or not! :)

I got Octa, plug direct to PS5. It can play Destiny2. All buttons work fine but no right analog.

Then I try with xim apex, it not register as controller at all so all buttons not work.

Can it be used as an auth controller with APEX?

Now, Octa available in my country (Thailand) ready to ship

If you know of someone who owns the controller and was able to verify if it works in PS5 shooters then please let us know!
The controller wont be out for the next 2 months in EU/US :(.

You could easily buy one now :)

It also works in all other PS5 version shooters, correct? Such as Fortnite PS5 which is a free to test game.
The XIM Apex situation is to be expected, the controller is new and therefore not compatible.

Does the controller work in PS4 version games when connecting it as a secondary controller though? So PS4 controller in port 3 and Hori Octa in port 1 or 2.

Sorry, I did not try it with Fortnite. I test it with Destiny2 and Warframe
By the way, Octa is not activate Ps5 mode when plug to xim hub

EDIT: Lets me recheck with Ps4 mode again

EDIT2: Octa PS4 mode work fine with Xim Apex test it on Destiny 1

Can you please play a PlayStation 5 game, like fortnight which is free to play and only plug in that controller.

Does it work?

SLeePLatED has already tried Warframe PS5 and Destiny 2 PS5, both times the controller has been connected directly to the console. The controller worked in both games although these are DualSense only games! :)
So Fortnite PS5 should work as well!

Now the question is how and why the controller works in these games. If it is using the DualSense security chip or maybe a software algorithm to handle the encryption/encrypted communication then it wouldnt really be of any help for the XIM.

Iím confused, is this a third party PS5 DS controller? Should we hope that it works for all PS5 games?

Octa standalone work flawless on ps5 game but not with xim apex at this moment.
Ps4 mode no problem at all, it work fine with xim for ps4 game on Ps5 console

Hey guys, I got one to try myself. Just came out in the US. Unfortunately when itís plugged into the XIM, itís detected as a PS4 controller, not a PS5 controller. So the same issues as usual with any PS5 game.
