PS4 PRO's standard USB 3.1 ports & XIM4
« on: 08:45 AM - 11/09/16 »
Hi,

Out of all the messages I've seen, USB 3.0 is not recommended with XIM4 as it can cause some issues.
The PS4 Pro ONLY has 3.0 USB ports. Does this mean for safety reasons I have to get a 2.0 USB HUB?
If so, what USB hub should I get?

Thanks in advance!

XIM4 has a problem with some USB3 hubs on its host-side (meaning -- port 1, 2, and 3). It should work fine plugging into the PS4 Pro, but, we need to verify that.

Any news on whether the XIM works all ok with the new PS4 PRO? I'm thinking of getting the PRO but to be honest it would be a deal closer if the XIM doesn't work as there's just no way I can play FPS games using a dualshok!

I don't think anyone knows this for sure until tomorrow. I received my email about an hour ago stating that I can pick it up tomorrow.

The original PS4's USB ports are 3.0 too.
