Dear XIM team,

I’ve purchased XIM Apex on Monday, had tracking number 10mins after purchase. I was little sceptical coz I don’t like change and have been using XIM 4 for a while.
I got the delivery today, updated firmware, plugged in controller (Nacon Compact SLEH 00470), set up my key bindings, was all done within 15 mins because of clear guidance of this support forum & community. Have been playing for couple of hours now & loving every second of it.
Here to say massive thanks for making this work with PS5.

Hi guys,

i'm a european (italian) XIM apex user and i've just received my brand new PS5. I'd like to buy the cheapest 3rd party controller that works with the PS5 and i saw on amazon the Hori Mini pad for 25€. Is it recommended? Is there any cheaper option?

Thank you in advance.

Im also EU and Hori Mini Pad was the cheapest option i found. The only con is that u need a DS4 controller to boot up the Apex then plug the Hori in every time you start up the PS5. It only takes a second i dont bother doing it. So if you own a DS4 controller then go for the Hori, works great for me

Thank you for ur reply. I still own a PS4 so i've got the DS4. I'll first try to find a used nacon compact with the correct SLEH number and if i won't succeed i'll go for the hori mini pad.

EDIT: just bought @play wired compact controller from the local GameStop (hori fighting commander wasn't available) and it works flawlessly

I read here that for the hori minipad you need to plug it in after the xim powered on, but I don't know if it's just dumb luck or something else but my minipad autenticates while staying plugged in during xim startup. it just works. Hori minipad (blue), the original apex hub did not last long so I am using an USB 2.0 hub from belkin and got the latest firmware. Could it have to do something with the hub?

It has to be Hori PS4 version. I guess both pokemon and mario editions are Nintendo versions?

Hy XiM team

I like to buy XIM APEX but I have question.
Do I use keyboard and mouse on PS5 with PS5 controller? So I see different comment where somebody read that if You like play warzone on PS5 You MUST connect PS4 controller. 
This is true?

Playstation 3rd Party Controller: Tested - 100%

Hori Fighting Stick Mini 4


I have been using it for the last 4 months, works flawlessly for PS5 support with the latest BETA firmware: 2100223.

I though was mention before but I don't see it on the controllers list on the first post of this thread.

Nacon should work, Make sure you've updated your XIM Apex "Firmware"

You need to update the firmware with a PC.

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 :) ).
