XIM4 and the upcoming xbox series x/ps5?
« on: 02:03 PM - 09/09/20 »
I have a xim4 and was wondering if it will work with the xbox series x/PS5 when they are released later this year?

It all depends on the nature of the firmware changes required to make it work. Unlike XIM APEX, XIM4 has very little space left on it, so, as long as the fix is minimal, then, XIM4 can be made to work.

I think it's going to work because the Xbox One controller and all other Xbox One steering wheels and flight sticks xcetera are supposed to work with the Xbox series X. My only question is will the XIM4 work with the new controller that comes with the series X ? It seems the only difference between the Xbox One controller and the series X controller is one new button. I personally plan on using my Xbox One controller and the XIM4 with my new series X on November 10th.

Unfortunately we have much less information about PS5 than we do about Xbox Series X/S.

We can't even get a preorder in for PS5, so, not anywhere closer to answering that. :(

Honestly I'd be happy if it was a firmware patch that just removed other systems to free space if needed. I'd even pay for an upgrade patch to make it worth while for the effort to make the xim4 work on newer consoles even with having to lose support for other systems

they wouldn't do that as not everyone would be upgrading to the xbox series x or ps5

no reason it cant be an optional firmware update, I dont know about you but once my ps5 comes in I wont be using my ps4 and I dont need ps3/xbox 360 support at all lol.

With PS5 i don't need support others platforms (x360, x1, ps3, ps4).

I wouldn't mind if it lost ps3/xbox 360 support but I would still want xbox one and ps4 support so if it ended up with xbox series x, ps5, xbox one and ps4 support i would be ok with that
