We thought of that. We don't have the right materials we'd need to do that experiment. A DS4 in a stainless steel container still has at least a 12m range when we tried that. As soon as it was out of range, it disconnected.

was it corded testing this?

No.

We didn't want to have to go there, but, it could be that we may need to go down the Bluetooth route. We can't really understand Sony's motivation on this one. We will investigate, but, as stated, if anyone sees anything out there about this particular issue (PS4 only talking wireless), please post to this thread.

Obsiv even if a lot of work the BT comm with the PS4 would be awesome for sofa gaming. Just saying even if not helping right now.

I still say and sacrifice a DS4 by incapacitating its BT capability and using it wired. Maybe it starts talking. :)

That was what I was thinking also. I fear Obsiv will not bother with this for long at least for the beta.

It may be that the DS4 solely talks wired to be able to talk to PC.

so if Sony doesn't fix this or third party wired controllers never come out there's  is no chance of a XIM coming to PS4 ?

No he said a complete wireless XIM is MAYBE possible. That would also mean the XIM4 needs a power cord and maybe XIM pcb redesign.

Just ordered a ONE just to be sure. *sigh* this is bad.

Would Sony themselves ever release a wired controller?

Or by this point in time on Next Gen everything released is going to be wireless?

Sony isn't letting a lot of devices connect to the PS4 with a wired connection. it's a shock to see that they even did this with the DS4 as well.
