Hey,

for a concrete statement the consoles have to be tested first, until then only assumptions based on leaks/information can be made.

Welcome to the community. As Od1n states, we will need the consoles to know for sure. Concerning native mouse and keyboard support, games can choose if they want to use that support. To date, few have. If a game does support native, XIM will be available to allow you game in the same lobbies as your controller friends and also use a wider variety of input devices.

We won't know for certain until after the consoles have launched.

Microsoft already announced November as the month. Considering that Destiny 2 Beyond Light has been pushed back to November 10 and they've sort of been cross marketing my guess is that's about when XSX comes out and PS5 isn't too far from that date.

Yes, things are looking good for Xbox. PS5 is still a big unknown.

The difference between a PS5 game and a PS4 game may simply be support for haptic feedback on the DualSense controller.

Sony had to pay patent royalties for DS3 and DS4 rumble. IMHO, that's why PS5 games won't work with a DS4 and Sony is ditching a bad relationship rather than locking out third-party devices (I'd just jump to XBSX instead of PS5 if they did).

Hopefully a DualSense won't be an issue with XIM APEX, but we won't know until the consoles are released.

You've been around long enough to know that. :)

I'll be so disappointed if it doesn't work for PS5, but understand that's how it works.

I still remember buying my first XIM for Halo

Oh of course. I have no doubt you will find a way considering you were able to make XIM Edge work w/PS4 when it was created for PS3.

Edit:
Just found this.. This should be interesting.

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2020-08-20-deathloop-blocks-the-ps5-dualsense-controller-triggers-when-your-weapon-jams?fbclid=IwAR0CeQS4gt9Ncw7ZBx2MRp5avpWg3ZfrV8zeyLLUGaf4RoRfgG97W8QrMnU

Also according to Reddit they are also working on a feature where depending on how far you pull the trigger could be used as an "Alt Fire".  I guess that would have to be worked out as well or they need an option to disable it (or you are just stuck with always firing "alt fire")
