[Q/A] XIM 4 on PS 5
« on: 11:52 AM - 01/21/21 »
I see that there is a beta version of the Apex firmware that allows you to use it with PS 5 games via a third party controller. I have a XIM 4 and just ordered a PS 5 so I was wondering if there will be a version available for the XIM 4. I have pretty bad arthritis in my hands and have a hard time using a standard controller.

Sorry, It's been said that XIM4 can't receive this update because it's memory is full and this is too large of a change.

As a free workaround you can use Remote Play, or use a Titan Two together with your XIM4 to play PS5 games.

Is that the official word from the developers? Iíll purchase an Apex if the XIM 4 canít be updated but Iím very happy with the XIM 4 and donít want to replace it unnecessarily. Given that the Titan is about the same price as the Apex, I think I would just as soon have the Apex. Remote play wonít support 4K so itís not really a long term solution. Iím hopeful that the developers will eventually be able to provide support for the native PS5 controller
