⚡IMPORTANT

Gaming on the PLAYSTATION 5 requires two methods to play PS5 Games without disconnections and with no corrupted MOD and GPC script outputs. This page will tell you if you need either the PS4 SPECIALITY or PS REMOTE PLAY methods.



Without using these methods, all scripts and GamePacks become corrupted, and the controller will disconnect after 8-10 minutes. Follow these step-by-step instructions, which are carefully presented in the correct order, starting from this page, and your PS5 will be up and running in just a few minutes👍

PS4 SPECIALITY OR PS REMOTE PLAY?

It's important to know which method to use, but don't worry it's not difficult

The PS4 SPECIALITY method is used with PS5 games that recognize third-party licensed PS4 controllers. Basically, if the game shows the error "PS5 games can't be played using the current controller", you can't use PS4 SPECIALITY with that game and need to use PS REMOTE PLAY (or try the PS4 version of the game).

PS4 SPECIALITY requires a third-party licensed PS4 controller (e.g., the HORI PS4 Mini-Pad 🛒), or the Cronus PS5 Dongle (we don't make these anymore, but the HORI does the exact same function).

The PS4 SPECIALITY 👈 guide explains everything with easy step-by-step instructions.

PS REMOTE PLAY supports almost all PS5 games. It doesn't matter if the game supports third-party PS4 controllers or not, so you do not need a HORI Mini-Pad or PS5 Dongle👍

It does however require a good quality internet connection, preferably wired ethernet, and any PC/Mac/iOS/Android device to run the official Sony PS REMOTE PLAY app, or the awesome open-source CHIAKI REMOTE PLAY for Windows and Android.

The PS REMOTE PLAY 👈 guide explains exactly how it works with step-by-step instructions.
