Last thing if anyone has run into this issue, the PS5 and PS4 think the Nacon Compact Controller is a usb headset when it is connected to the Xim Apex. When it is just plugged in by itself it works perfectly. As soon as you plug it into the Xim Apex, the Playstation consoles think its a USB headset and not a controller, hence the controller wont even start when trying to activate. Has anyone run into this issue thanks again. My last ditch effort trying to have some success.

@GODFATHER looking at some of the older posts here, I noticed that it was mentioned the Nacon Compact Controller, was not working (odd that is in the working list)...sorry man...can you return it and get another one? get the one I have, seems to work great...

Just wanted to update you guys on the hori mini pad PS4. I no longer have to plug it in after the xim boots up. Itís now picking it up plugged in while booting every time. Donít know if you guys intended to fix it and if I am the only one that would be weird but thank you just makes it a little less on an inconvenience.

Hmm, no, we didn't change anything there. :) Maybe someone else with the Mini can confirm as well.
For me the Hori Mini Pad is not working. I still have to replug it to Apex like before.
Same here. Hori Mini Pad still requires powering Apex, and then plugging in Hori. Still minor inconvenience, works great.

Mine works perfecrly NACON COMPACT CONTROLLER  ps5 console

It's obvious that this controller is working great for some people and not for others. I think in the list of compatible controllers there should be an asterisk next to the Nacon Compact saying there have been conflicting reports on this controller so the person knows what he/she is getting into before purchasing it assuming it is 100% compatible.

Actually I did exactly what you said , and neither Nacon worked and I have downloaded the latest firmware again on both controllers and it did not work.I went through the steps multiple times too making sure I was doing it right and it still didn't work.

And I even took it a step further, I went to a friends house who has the PS5 to see if it would work on his and it didn't. I actually returned the Nacon to Amazon for a second time yesterday because it was obvious there would be no success.

And the reason why I said some have success and others don't because it would be disrespectful calling out others on this board saying it doesn't work for me so as a conclusion the Nacon compact controller isn't compatible with the PS5 and xim apex. So I stand by statement, it works for some and not others. Why ? I have no clue. But I'm done with the Nacon, after trying with 2 Im convinced it doesn't work.

What color were the Nacon controllers?

I've had success with the Black Nacon controller working.
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 can confirm the hori mini fightstick works as an accessory for the xim on the ps5, was really stoked I had that laying around when my ps5 came in.

I've used both a red Nacon Compact and black Nacon Compact and can confirm they both worked.

Someone also mentioned the Vivitar LVLUP Gaming controller not working properly for use in PS5 games and I can also confirm the same thing. I assume the first report of it working was in error. It functions exactly the same as attempting to use a Brook Wingman XE (converting a xbox controller to ps4). It will work for 8 minutes before ceasing to respond. Considering brook doesn't have a working ps5 support for any of their products and the Vivitar is unlicensed I don't think it actually works.

Hello,
I just bought a XIM APEX, and it work perfectly fine on PS5 with a DS4 controller on ps4 games. Actually, Óm just playing Warzone and Apex legend, 2 ps4 games.

I try to lauch the XIm apex with my DS5, and it is not working.
I saw the firmware is a beta, and ps5 havenít 3rd party controller yet, but i need to know something.
Will it work in the future on PS5 games, with the DS5? I dont want to buy another controller just to use the xim apex.

I saw it is usb 3.0, and the xim is just using USB 2.0.

In few week, Warzone ll be compatible on Ps5, with fov and 120fps, and i would like to use the xim on it.
Do you have so news about that? Will it be compatible with ps5/DS5/PS5 games or we will have to buy a new XIM??

The price of the product is ok, but it is not cheap we know that and i just bought it few days ago. If i have to buy a new one in few weeks it ll be a problem for me.

Can you let me know please?
Thanks to all!

Hey,

here is a short summary of what Obsiv mentioned in other topics in regard to your questions:
- The DualSense controller doesnt work with the XIM at the moment
- the new XIM wont be a mouse and keyboard adapter, XIM Apex will continue to fill that purpose
- DualSense support development has been halted for now as more information has to be gathered
- said information might come with the first licensed third party PS5 controllers (may take months before those arrive though)
- third party "specialization" controllers allow you to use your XIM in PS5 games in the meantime with no downsides

So basically I've no reason to get an Apex, if my Xim4 can play PS4 games on the PS5 till another developer I'll just do that, if the next Xim isn't a kb/m adapter they'll tuen full attention to that.
