I don't know much about PS's remote play, but, I assume you do this through a PC? If so, you can use any controller for that (meaning, no authentication is done).

Actually the last time I tried remote play you had to have a PS4 controller(on my pc), wouldnít let you do anything without it. That may have changed as it was over a year ago I tried it. Anyway another sign of good things is in that video he actually uses it with a ps3 also. So maybe good things.

Hi, Iíve not been on here for a while and canít really be asked to read the whole thread (sorry, Iím lazy😂)

Is it confirmed whether xim will work for xbsx and ps5 or one of the consoles?

It will be confirmed once XIM Tech has XBSX and PS5 consoles in-hand. No-one has them yet, ergo they can't be confirmed as compatible or not.

Someone needs to get onto someone like MKBHD or Skillup and see if they can plug one in and give it a whirl /s

real talk, everyday i check this thread to see if anyone has the inside word about whats going to happen next week.... fingers crossed it is just plug and play like PC!!!

It will definitely at least require a firmware update.

From what he said before, unfortunately not.


Thanks. What we are looking for is the new authentication protocol which will only occur when connected directly to a PS5.

Sony mentioned that only the PS5 controller will be suppoerted for PS5 exclusives.
I wonder how will that impact the Xim add-on/mouse/keyboard.

Did notice today in a video by sony that the controller still has the option of running wired or Bluetooth. Hopefully more good signs

is this with regard to the Dualsense? do you think that a ds4 will still work as it does now in games that support it?

personally i'm going to be grinding the hell out of D2 so I can wait for an update for ps5 exclusive games

They recommend you use a DS4 controller for PS4 games but the Dualsense would work on it.

No joy, unfortunately. I tried it (the MAGIC-S Pro) directly in the console and through all of the XIM Apex's ports, and the Dual Sense still did not work, nor did my mouse or keyboard (through the XIM). I had to try :)
