Because Sony doesn't hand out the keys to the DualSense controller authentication protocol. This has been a concern since Sony announced months ago that PS5 games required a DualSense controller to play. To lock out the DS4 meant they implemented a new controller protocol and it'll take time to reverse-engineer, assuming it's possible.

Conversely, XBSX announced forwards & backwards controller compatibility with Xbox One. This made it very quick and easy to add support for the XBSX controller to XIM APEX as the lion's share of the work was already done via Xbox One support.

If you don't have the patience to wait for XIM Tech to work it out, your options are -
a) play PS4 games on PS5 using XIM APEX and a DS4 V2 controller,
b) play PS5 games on PS5 using XIM APEX, a DS4 V2 and the PS Remote Play app on PC or Mac, or
c) get an Xbox Series X console instead.

Next-gen console compatibility with XIM APEX was never guaranteed, it was always conditional on "if it's possible, we'll do it". Dropping angry emotes doesn't get the job done any faster.

Hello,

Having a PS5 and an Apex, I try to follow your advises to connect my Xim to a Dualshock V2 but it still does not work so I can't play to PS4 games on my PS5 with my Xim.

Can someone help me please?

What game are you playing? Or trying to play?

Have you change the controller settings to USB from Bluetooth connection?

When Sony announced PS 5 new controller with their new haptic feature, I knew right away that it was going to be a possibility that XIM might not be supported. I will be moving away from Sony (I have PS4 Pro with SSD) and I will be getting an Xbox Series X. Mostly it is due to the fact that Sony has implemented a mic into their new controller, made draconian changes to their TOS (sell your info) and gave the ability for anyone to report anyone with their new feature, which includes the ability to submit voice chat. Before anyone says anything about me owning a smartphone, I have apps that block my camera, mic and provide privacy. Also, having a phone is a necessity and having a console is not. I do not need another spy device in my house. We pay for the Playstation consoles, PSN, buy games, so there is no need to make even more money by selling our info. When we use Google on our phones - well, it is free. It makes sense they sell our info. Nothing is free in the console world, that's for sure.
Besides, a new phone will come out soon from Purism company - it will be clean, no spyware, not running an Android, but a Pure OS - meaning people have options.
Privacy is a matter of principle and I vote with my wallet. Good bye Sony (I have been with them since 1996 and owned every console they ever made). I am very surprised how people say Good Bye to their privacy for free, since so few people made a big deal over Sony changing their TOS. Wait until Sony will get hacked again, they will have much more info to loose about you this time around.

Be patient.

OBSIV is very smart.

If compatibility with the PS5 has not yet been achieved, it must be something really complex.

How can I use option B?

Do you mean plugging PS5 controller to Xim apex and PS4 controller to PS remote play or the opposite?

edit:

I got it, there is no PS5 controller involved.

I think Titan Two did it.

This is just for passthrough. Meaning, if you wanted to use the DS5 through Titan without modifying it's input in any way.
