Device: KeyMander 2
PS5 Compatibility requirements (2022 update)
3/1/2022 Update: We are updating this post to confirm that we are officially supporting the hardware device known as Beloader to enable KeyMander 2 compatibility with PS5. We are not affiliated with Beloader, however we believe it is a cost-effective and easy solution to play your PS5 games and K2 is fully compatible with it. The Beloader device is available on Amazon for around $60 (link here) and allows full compatibility with PS5 games on PS5 using a PS5 controller connected to the K2, with the Beloader plugged in between the K2 and PS5 console. Using Beloader with K2 does require connecting a 2A minimum power supply (iPad charger or similar) to the K2's power port, and the Beloader device does require a Wi-Fi connection with pairing through Wi-Fi to your PS5.
10/6/2021 Update: Sony is starting to require the PS5 Dual Sense controller on several games which locks out the ability to use 3rd party controllers. PS4 versions of these games (not all have a PS4 versions) are still compatible with K2. At this time the following games are confirmed as not compatible with KeyMander 2 due to this issue.
Back 4 Blood
Battlefield 2042 beta
Call Of Duty: Vanguard
Diablo II: Resurrected
Final Fantasy VII Remake
Ghost of Tsushima Directors Cut
Rainbow Six Siege
4/28/2021 Update: The PS5 compatibility is still limited at this time to licensed 3rd party controllers, with the list of confirmed compatible controllers below. This list is not exclusive as other controllers may work but are not yet confirmed. If anyone has additional controllers that they've tested and confirmed working, please let us know.
NOTE: The PS5 DualSense controller is not currently able to authenticate through the K2, so every 8 minutes the PS5 will disconnect the K2 for the failed authentication. This is the reason the 3rd party licensed controller is needed, as you will connect it to the K2 controller port instead of using the PS5 DualSense controller. We are continuing to work on this issue, but we cannot comment on when the DualSense controller will be supported.
The PS5 update for 3rd party controllers was released as part of firmware V1.2.115 . This update does NOT work with the Sony DualSense controller, however it does allow full function with audio on PS5 games using the following 3rd party controllers:
Qanba Dragon Joystick (PS4)
Razer Panthera EVO (PS4)
HORI Real Arcade Pro.N Hayabusa (PS4/PS3/PC)
HORI Real Arcade Pro.4 KAI (PS4)
The 3rd party controller plugs into the controller port on the K2 and your mouse and keyboard connect normally. The PS5 controller is not needed in this configuration.
