XIM4 and Xbox Series X
« on: 04:20 AM - 03/23/21 »
Is there any confirmation whether the XIM4 works with the Series X? I can't find a definitive answer. TIA.

If you use an Xbox One Controller then the XIM4 will work on the Xbox Series X. If you use an Xbox One S controller you may have to update your XIM4 Firmware though.

In case anyone else reads this post, it is worth clarifying that the XIM 4 DOES NOT work with the Xbox Series X controller.  I've tried it with the latest firmware (20200203) but it does not detect the controller.  Another moderator, mist4fun, has confirmed this.

If you connect an older, series 1 controller to the XIM4 then it works with the Xbox Series X absolutely fine.

It's pretty poor that 6 months later they still haven't updated xim 4 to work with the current  generation controller... the devs way of telling us to hand over more money and upgrade to the Apex I guess.

From what I understand there is no more room in device memory for major compatibility updates for XIM 4, which to be fair, hasnít been produced in over 3 years.

An Xbox One controller works on Series X, which will add another 7 or 8 years to the XIM 4ís lifespan.

It's also pretty poor to expect a company to keep updating a product that is older than an iPhone 6.

But handing over the money for the Apex is still handing over the money for a product which is already 3 years old. But...   it will be money well spent, the differences between the Apex and the Xim4 are huge.
