Xim Now doesnt work on PS5, you can bypass that by using remote play on PC

I was playing fine earlier after the ps5 software update , it was modern warfare though so a PS4 game
 Are you saying it's not working at all on ps5 for you now? Seems ok for me

Oh right yeah seems like they are stopping you from playing all games now, I'll have to test out resident evil village now, guessing it probably won't work.

It is per-game.

What happen on the recent System Update is that now you can see the PS4 and PS5 version on your launch menu.

If you were playing a PS4 game on your PS5 that also has a PS5 version now you have two launch icons, if you want to use XIM make sure you click on the PS4 version.

Only some PS5 games that had a individual update to work with DS5 only are the ones you can't play anymore with XIM.

Recent System Update is not disable XIM in all games.

Bungie doesn't care, in fact they have even said they don't mind the xim.

Thank goodness because Destiny 2 will drop to my number two played game once BF2042 comes out.
