Venom-X4 PS5 support note


For Venom-X4 user to play SOME of the PS5 games on the new Playstation 5 console, Tuact released the firmware

V6.0.2 BETA. With the new Venom-X4 firmware V6.0.2, you would need a 3rd party PS4 controller attached.

This is because the PS5 console encrypts the USB data stream, none of the DualShock4 and DualSense5 controller

can be used for licensing where both SONY original controller can be used on Venom-X4 to play PS5 games although

the DS4 controller still can be used for PS4 games on PS5.

The 3rd party PS4 controller solution allows user to be able to play SOME PS5 game but NOT all the PS5 games.

The 3rd party PS4 compatible controller is attached to Venom-X4 for licensing the USB port and get around the

license restriction.


Due to some of the PS5 games ONLY accept the DualSense controller to play, the 3rd party controller solution described

above will NOT work with all the PS5 games, there is no way around to get it resolved. Thus, before you buying the following

controller, user have to check the game to make sure the game you like to play MUST accept 3rd party PS4 compatible


If the game won't accept the 3rd party controller but supports the native mouse/keyboard, you may take the advantage of

the Venom-X4's PC mode where you still can play with the Venom-X4 wand and mouse, then you DO NOT need any of the

3rd party controller listed below.
