Playstation 5 Update?
« on: 10:05 AM - 04/22/21 »
Hello, im sure your all fed up with PS5 this, PS5 that. I have scraped together a general understanding from a few posts I have dug up. Most of these posts were 3-5 months ago so I might be out of touch. As it stands now XIM does NOT work on PS5 "natively" but it does work with beta firmware and some 3rd party controllers.  This is because the PS4 controller cannot be used in PS5 games and the PS5 controller isn't supported yet. The last update I saw was December of last year with no progress. I guess im just asking for a update on native PS5 support.

Is it even possible?
If so is it being worked on?
How far in development is it?
What was the most recent breakthrough?
Is this a "Could be any day" or "in the coming months" or "Gonna take a long time, 2022 est." or is it just impossible
How likely is it we get support by years end?

Its amazing the work that you guys do and im sure this is a near impossible task but I want to know if I should keep waiting for that day or give up hope.

Welcome to the community. Everything is on pause until we start seeing some official 3rd party licensed controllers for PS5 so we can learn from them.

While not ideal, a supported third-party controller works perfectly for PS5 games at a relatively low cost. The core issue of DualSense support is a tough challenge that no-one is yet to solve and likely won’t until PS5 third-party controllers are released.

The new update is much better this time, I like that my friends can accept us and not play at all. No request has to be sent.

Is there a list of controllers that work, or any recommendations for the cheapest option? I tried looking up "hori handle"^^^^ but didn't find any results.

I'd really like to get my apex working with native PS5 games before Battlefield comes out. Thanks.
