I have been looking to buy a Hori gamepad to play Destiny 2 Ps5 version using apex. I saw someone on youtube showing it works.
I just wanted to ask if Nacon compact will work on d2 ps5 with xim apex.
Its in the list of compatible third party controllers.

If someone can confirm this that would be awesome and also if you could recommend something else that works (on d2 ps5 version), that would be great as well.

Thanks in advance 😁

Nacon Compact works on all PS5 and PS4 games with XIM Apex ^^
I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).

I bought a Nacon Compact a few days ago to test on PS5, but have yet to do so.

Apparently the Nacon Compact works better than the Hori Mini Pad as it doesn't require the controller to be unplugged then replugged into APEX after console boot-up.

Confirmed. Nacon Compact PS4 Controller works without issue. It's plug & play using latest XIM APEX FW.

I have to partially restart the console because the xim apex lights up white with the Nacon Compact controller. That's why I only plug in the controller after it has started.

Hey Anti,

Getting a nacon compact controller but don't have any ps5 games yet.  Can you check if it works on the ASTRO game room the console came with?   If so, I'll use that as a quick test method

I tested in Destiny 2 and Borderlands 3 without issue. They both have free PS5 upgrades.

Awesome, thank you for confirming khyle.

Ahh, didn't know those games have ps5 updates as well Anti.  So will those games work with both DS4 and nacon then?

Update, just got it and works fine!

Mrs Khyle and I have been couch-co-oping BL3 PS5 and I can confirm that the Apex/Nacon combo work flawlessly.

My nacon compact controller works on PS4 version of the game but it doesn't work on Ps5 version of the game. I don't have a xim yet. When I get the xim apex will it work? Or How can I fix this problem? I think it should work solo. Help me please1 :'(

It will only work with PS5 games when plugged into XIM Apex.
