Jxshyz

It’s very funny to prove them wrong 🤣


WasChristRipped

Personally if I WAS cheating, I’d simply take a picture of my controller in my hand prior to cheating to both make them feel bad AND get away with it


Jxshyz

Imagine that LOL


OG_sirloinchop

If you're going to cheat... do it right? Just like a Russian olympian


5emi5erious5am

I would insist that Xim is not my preferred pronouns and report them for hate speech.


GeorgeSPattonJr

Nice socks


Krekelteen

Thanks! those are my gamer socks, haven't washed them in years for good luck and xim-slander-worthy-aim


pabadacus

How do they smell?


Krekelteen

They smell like home


xKiLzErr

I mean, I can respect the fact he at least said he's sorry😭


Karma_Doesnt_Matter

I mean to be fair, you need a controller to use a xim. You could easily just take a picture of the controller.


NotEnoughFire

at least he apologized 🤣🤣


SYRLEY

Lol the dudes like ima just see myself out now.

Next time, hold up a Guitar Hero controller, really fuck with em.

Don't reply people use that to bait people and report as harassment to get people banned


Jxshyz

Yeah, I got him mad enough to say a swear word and now he’s banned for a week or so. Lmao.


_Dai_Dai

Lol nice


SpaceDoctorWOBorders

It tells you?


JeepersCreepersV12

No. You can see the "message deleted by sony" or whatever but the person who reported doesn't see if the person they've reported has been banned or not. Edit: apparently if you report someone and they do get suspended... you are somehow notified.


lonewolff7798

Yes you do! I have gotten people suspended before and it sends you a message in your notifications center. I don’t remember the exact wording but it’s something along the lines of “we reviewed your case and found that (playertag) is in violation of psn policy, thank you for your support” It doesn’t right out say the punishment but it’s implied.


JeepersCreepersV12

u/showmeyourcat_ I had no idea. People have tried it on me but I've never tried it on anyone. I had some younger person who thought he got me suspended sending me messages. I got a good laugh when I responded to him


lonewolff7798

I play a lot of multiplayer games, and I don’t think I’m all that great at them, but I’m apparently good enough for people to message me some really vulgar stuff sometimes. I don’t report when people message me and say I’m trash or to delete the game or anything like that, I think that’s hilarious, but sometimes these kids can get real creative and no one really needs to be messaging that to random strangers. I also used to get bots like once a month trying to sell sex and ask for CC information, reported every last one that came my way and got a message for all of them, haven’t seen one of those in years though.


[deleted]

You do! I received an email from Sony once telling me they had dealt with a user who raged in my messages.

RevolutionLoose5542

I whiffed hard during match point and this guy messages “good aim” with one of the plastion thumbs up emoji. Reported for harassment and he got banned. Sole reason i leave messages on… id like to think that kid had a good few days prior to thanksgiving


dukezap1

You do see it. You’ll get a message later saying PlayStation has taken action on their account


GhostGamez126TW

Happens to me all the time, someone got salty as said they were gonna fuck my dead mom. They report the messages and I GET BANNED permanently. I have posted the screenshots here, I got so many hate messages on here too

Nice to meet you, Ahewison3.


braindeadrichard

Yeah it’s happened to me before so I’ve baited people too lol At the same time does anyone kind of miss the old days of psn where you could talk all the shit and not get reported over your messages?


ShartingBloodClots

In the 360 days all you heard were n-bombs, f-g, everyone banging everyone elses mom. I swear my gay black mom was banging the whole world. It wasn't even really rage sounding either, it was just casual.


MistaRekt

My mother had sex with so many teenagers too... Good on her I guess...


HotClock4632

Seesh that sounds like a major pain. Luckily I haven't got harassment ever since I've gotten my ps5.


mikeyd4654

acc hate people like that, only time i ever got baited was the day before my ps5 got delivered and it’s safe to say u won’t ever fall for it again🤣


Codeblue45

Lolz I wish I knew about this earlier, I called him and idiot and he reported our chat. I didn't get banned tho just a warning.


Pizzaplanet420

As long as you don’t swear or insult them in the response you are fine. Sony won’t take any action, I’ve only been suspended in scenarios where I cussed at the person.

don’t be willfully dense. calling someone a man child isn’t going to get anyone banned/suspended/muted on any platform. calling someone a slur usually will (if it’s reported), whether it’s on playstation, twitter, facebook, reddit, anything.

“Don’t be willfully dense” is pretty raw, I’m keeping that

What is xim?


YveltalFTW123

Xim is a gaming peripheral device that allows users to connect a mouse and keyboard to their console. It is mainly used for shooter games, where it provides a mouse aim assist feature, which makes it easier and more accurate to aim with a mouse. its a term for xbox users mainly since XIM stands for Xbox Input Machine \^\^\^\^\^\^\^\^\^\^\^ i just googled it xD


AndresGreenboi

So what’s the difference between just plugging in a mouse and keyboard? Does it detect the keyboard as a controller?


thisis-difficult

It emulates a controller with a mouse and keyboard. A lot of games on console dont outright support them. *however* they do not provide any kind of aim assist or aim botting. The cronus might but the xim apex that is just for mouse and keyboard does not interact with the game at all.


AndresGreenboi

Soooo… the xim adds aim assist that wouldn’t have been there if you just plugged in a keyboard normally?


Stanislas_Biliby

On some games it's straight up not allowed to have mouse and keyboard like rainbow six. It's literraly just cheating. You can also use things that reduce recoil automacally.


thisis-difficult

I have an older one that just adds keyboard and mouse functionality to games that dont already support it, via emulating a controller. This model does NOT add any kind of aim assist. Xim does make things that i think can add cheats though


AndresGreenboi

No, I mean like, say Fortnite has aim assist built in only for controller, and removes it when plugging in a keyboard. Does using a xim give you keyboard support while the game gives you the aim assist normally used for controller?


thisis-difficult

I believe so, yes. Because you have to have the controller plugged in as well, the game detects it as if you are using a controller. However, this doesnt magically make it easier than controller, in my opinion. It doesnt feel any easier.


LordOfDarkHearts

I'm way better in shooters with mouse and keyboard than I am with a controller, my cod/bf kd on ps4 is around a 1-1,5/1 and on PC it's at 3-4/1 at same games. I would argue with a xim and aim-assist things get quite a bit easier. I grew up gaming on console, switched to pc for a bit, and back to console, now both. I should be more comfortable with a controller than a keyboard and for racing games that is true, but shooters- mouse and keyboard are so much better and easier for me.


thisis-difficult

And of courwe in that situation it makes sense for you. But the average console gamer isnt gonna just on a mouse and keyboard and be better


Amairca

You’re the real mvp

YveltalFTW123

did i say it was? i said it mainly was since the term XIM stands for XBOX input machine, doesnt mean other consoles havent come out with the same type of device before, just stated what the term XIM meant specifically


theCoffeeDoctor

For a serious moment I thought it was another pronoun being forcibly added into spoken language.

PS4 controllers work on PS5?


Jxshyz

Yeah and I’m very glad about it, it has to be a PS4 game, though.


RyanIsHungryToo

You’re losing out on the performance of the ps5 version, but if you prefer the controller I can’t fault you


StarbornRotten

Whats the difference if you dont play with vibe or trigger retention? Always plugged in..


Jbanning710

He means ps5 performance vs ps4 if he’s on the ps4 version he’s only getting 60fps but if he’s on a tv it doesn’t make a dkfference


Evan12390

this isn’t true, Siege and For Honor are listed as PS4 games but still enjoy PS5 improvements. So you can still use a DS4 on these games despite the upgrade.


RyanIsHungryToo

What you just said is also not true. Siege has a ps5 version with 120fps suppprt, trigger support. Etc


mexz101

Seige has a dedicated ps5 version, if you use that version or any other ps5 version game you cannot use a ds4. You also won’t be able to use the performance mode nor the upgraded textures and other things they added.


Savage_Hamster_

I mean I did this too. I played PS4 versions for about 3 months until my controller started malfunctioning. Then I swapped to PS5 versions and boy did it feel good 🤩


tsckenny

Never thought about it but that makes sense.


hello-wow

It makes just one sense or… dual-sense?


godtier300sosa

PS4 controllers work on ps3 too lmao

vulturevan

Your full name is in this image fyi


Jxshyz

Ah.. I guess it’s abit too late. Damn.


SometimesWill

Don’t you still need an active ps controller for sim to work? Better proof would have also been unplugging the USBs from the PlayStation and also probably using the correct controller for the console.


Jxshyz

Well I’m not sure how a xim works, but I sure as hell wouldn’t be using one on a big flatscreen tv brother


SometimesWill

Yeah honestly once you start spending that kind of money to get the xim, you might as well just go ahead and get a pc.


Jxshyz

How much do they cost anyway? Not that I want one or anything lol


SometimesWill

For good ones usually $100 and up.


Jxshyz

Damn. $100 to be labeled as a loser, lmao


Electric_Jello

Kind of awesome that you got a hacking accusation using a ps4 controller on a ps5


ItsAllMo-Thug

Ps4 controller?


Jxshyz

Yeah it feels better for shooter games


ItsAllMo-Thug

Small hands?


Jxshyz

Not necessarily, just the feel and weight of it makes it feel faster rather than a big bulky controller making me feel slow in game


Oppblockjoe

I used to do the same shit 😂 sometimes I’d send them voice notes just laughing to piss em off a little more

How tf bro uses ps4 controller on a ps5


CowardlyMaya_

Why do you still use the PS4 version of the game?


supershimadabro

My daughter prefers the ps4 controller as well. Says the sticks are stiffer and easier to get headshots.


braveslayer

Indeed also for me the ps5 controller feel thicc af


Jxshyz

Heavy too, makes me feel slow


DustyKeyhole

I fat thumb the options button too often while trying to hit square. I prefer the Dualsense overall but I prefer the DS4 in competitive games.


Jxshyz

Literally same bro


braveslayer

Yea


Jxshyz

Glad it isn’t just me


Jxshyz

I wanna keep using my ps4 controller as its only new


CowardlyMaya_

That's fair


[deleted]

I'm gonna feel stupid for asking this, but you can use a PS4 controller with a PS5??


frigginright

yes but afaik only for PS4 games


Wild-Session823

You can specifically use the PS4 controller with any PS4 format game. They do not work on any PS5 versions of said games.


MikeKonami

Yes. Also on PS3 and PC. And I think there was also a way to use it on Xbox.


[deleted]

I knew the PC part but the others I didn't. you learn something new everyday I suppose

MikeKonami

https://www.ign.com/wikis/playstation-4/DualShock_4_Compatible_PlayStation_3_Games That is not "a handful".


TheDeepEndStories

Not trying to hate, but your proof isn't substantial enough in the angle that I look at things. What does a picture prove? Honestly, if I felt you were using a 3rd party, it's no way that you can prove that you are not unless you go live with a hand cam as well. You could of easily disconnected your xim and grabbed your ps controller, took a pic and reconnected your xim. All in all, whether you're "cheating' or not, there's not much you can fo to plead your case the way you are doing it.


Safe_Base312

Ignore it and move on with your day.


dreamdaddy123

Why you using a ps4 controller what happened to the ps5?


Jxshyz

PS4 controller feels better in the hands IMO


MrMuscelz

Just went down a rabbit hole to find out what xim was


raidahlovah

Me too lol


MrMuscelz

Honestly I think I’m just too old for these gaming “slangs”lol why not just say hey you cheating


raidahlovah

I remember playing track and field on OG Nintendo and we used a can of chew to slide across the A and B buttons during the 100 meter dash. That was prime cheating.


Homer4a10

I do this too every time

XIM (from a google search) -> “XIM is a device that allows you to connect keyboard and mouse controls on a console, which naturally offers an advantage since mouse aiming in FPS games is generally more precise”


[deleted]

I love that response you gave him.


ContentDolphin

What game is this


J-Altman044

Siege


Si-FiGamer2016

I had to do research just now on what a "xim" is. Turns out it's an adapter from controllers to systems in gaming, like a Chronus Max. But that idiot didn't know that the PS4 controller is compatible with PS5 consoles, like the PS4 controller compatible with the PS3 system. 😆


EvilMonkYQC

Not for PS5 games


Si-FiGamer2016

Which is an unfortunate part, but it's still cool to have old and new gen merge.


EvilMonkYQC

You didn’t research much if all it took is a guy who’s dog ate his DualShock 5 to prove you wrong 🤦‍♂️😂


Si-FiGamer2016

You can't even experience the haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, and realistic vibrations on a PS4 game with a PS5 controller, or the PS4 controller itself. But I'm wrong? 🤣 I didn't have to do research to know exactly how it works. 🤡


NoCoolScreenName

How does taking a pic of a PS4 controller in front of a PS5 screenshot prove anything?


Jxshyz

Proves that I’m using the controller


NoCoolScreenName

Does it? How does showing a controller (of a different console) prove that you aren't using a keyboard and mouse? I think it only proves that you took a picture without a keyboard and mouse in the shot.


Jxshyz

PS4 controller connected to ps5. And I’m playing on a flatscreen tv, why on earth would I use keyboard and mouse


NoCoolScreenName

Why does it matter what kind of tv you have in the picture? I thought your whole point was to prove you weren't using a keyboard and mouse? My question is - How does a picture of a controller prove you weren't using a keyboard and mouse? I'm not trying to be a dick about this - I just don't understand. If I said, "I don't use a printer." and sent you a picture of my desk without a printer on it, how does that prove anything? I thought the point of these cheats/hacks was to hide the use of KB&M and make it look like you are just a controller user. How could someone prove they aren't using them? How can you really disprove an accusation?


Jxshyz

Disprove the accusation by showing a controller connected to the console, or, showing the console with empty USB ports. Or just a hand-cam. Those are the only ways to prove. A XIM allows you to use a keyboard and mouse. Im showing that I’m playing on a TV, and not at a desk, which is where a keyboard and mouse would be used. And, I’m using a controller connected to the system.


uinstitches

I mean could you not have unplugged the Xim for the photo? idk what this pic proves.


Jxshyz

Im on a living room TV man. Why would I have a keyboard and mouse on a 55 inch tv? Lol

Is your TV not 120fps why are you playing on the ps4 version of the game?


Jxshyz

It’s not that my tv is low refresh rate it’s just I like using the ps4 controller

Huh I prefer the ps4 roller as well but to say at 60fps just for the roller 🤔


Jxshyz

It has its disadvantages and advantages


WasChristRipped

Wait, why would a controller effect your FPS?


Jxshyz

Nah, but to use the ps4 controller you need to be on the PS4 version of the game which is limited to 60fps

Why on earth are you using a ps4 controller?

GlassStick2208

Wait how he playing a DualShock 4 on a ps5


Housewous

Because you can with ps4 games. But if you play ps5 game you need a dualsense.


Whitehead58

Playing the PS4 game on a PS5 makes it funny because i think 120fps mode makes it better if it has one. I also got often messages as a cheater but this picture don‘t verify that you‘re not using one if the opposite guy is not stupid to trust just one picture. Btw i met some Destiny 2/RS6 players who were playing PS4 version due to Xim/Cronus when PS5 wasn‘t supported.


Jxshyz

Im playing on a tv so a xim would just be futile, a Cronus isn’t being used as I’m using the controller wirelessly


Whitehead58

I never say that you‘re cheating, i commented my opinion and own experiences. If you‘re talking about sth. you have no knowledge then don‘t talk. Do your research before commenting.
