Review: The GameSir VX2 Aimbox is a Handy Device Hobbled by Poor Instructions

GameSir VX Aimbox is back, it has been updated to its new body, GameSir VX2 Aimbox.

I also reviewed the first VX Aimbox in March and he came rejoicing. Allows you to use PC and keyboard, wireless keyboards included, on PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. Yes, a few games, Hello for example, to support keyboards and mice, but AimBox was designed to be used with games that do not have cooking utensils.

And, although it is not as fast as birth mice, it does give you limits – especially when it comes to directing – on a person with a controller. At the very least, the story is original. My experience on VX2 Aimbox has been … fun, to say the least.


The VX2 adds a head socket that, on all consoles except the PS5, allows you to use your microphone and headphones without plugging in and off. Is that a good thing to have? Yes. Is it necessary? Not really.

The VX2 AimBox’s best selling feature is that it allows you to play any type of PlayStation 5 game with a mouse and keyboard. The previous version supported the PlayStation 4 game on the PlayStation 5 but not the actual PS5 themes. All you have to do right now is connect the keyboard, mouse and PlayStation 5 controller to VX2, then install it in your PlayStation5 and you’re ready to go. Right? Well, not really.

There are several warnings for using GameSir VX2 Aimbox to play PlayStation 5 games with a mouse. Are these problems due to poor construction and instability? No – it’s hard, especially, to Sony and PS5.

The main problem here is that you can use VX2 Aimbox with other third-party controllers. You see, Sony, like Microsoft, is shutting down its devices. If you were in the PlayStation 2 period you may have entered a 16MB memory card that requires you to insert a valid 8MB card. Why? Because the other way around was, as Mad Catz did, it was paying Sony to do legitimate things.

There is, at the moment, another third PS5 controller, the Scuf Reflex, priced at £ 219.99, which is now very hard to find. We covered HexGaming Ultimate PS5 controller, and Mega Modz PS5 controller, both are very good, but they both use the PlayStation 5 controller, so your console looks like a PlayStation 5 DualSense controller.

So, it is not really The problem with GameSir is that you can only use VX2 Aimbox with other developers, although it has made it difficult for you to try. There is nothing wrong with GameSir VX2 Aimbox.

GameSir and, however, to be blamed for the very ugly instructions that come with the device when using it on the PS5. I spent many hours trying to make this work, but I fail because you have to install the PlayStation 5 communication system on a USB cable, and then connect the PlayStation controller. After consultation with PR and GameSir, I was finally advised of this, and I was able to use it on PlayStation 4 games.

Why did I ask? Because this information is on the PlayStation 4 page of this book, it is not available on the PlayStation 5 page. The PlayStation 5 page only talks about using VX2 to play PlayStation 4 games and does not mention PlayStation 5 games. Probably a lot of the content on this page, I thought about at the time. The site pushes for “PS5 game support”. Maybe there is even a modified book?

So I went to the site, found VX2 Aimbox and clicked on the books. Instead of being taken to a VX2 book, I was sent to a group of all sorts of things. However, I clicked on the extras … and the VX2 Aimbox did not appear. These are not some of the published material I have been sent; You can buy from Amazon right now.

I later had to move to the front page, which stated that it only works “with third-party controllers licensed by Sony, on PS5 games”. Wait, so it only works with Scuf? Basically, no, it means a third party PS4 rulers, who then sends you a web page on Sony.

The controllers are, according to the site, Razer Raiju Pro, Nacon Revolution Pro, Nacon Wired Compact and Hori Wired Mini. The first two spend £ 100, double the price of VX2 Aimbox’s £ 49.99. Fortunately, I was able to obtain a cheap Hori wireless pad from Amazon and…

Basically, here is what you need to do:

  1. Connect your mouse to the keyboard in VX2 Aimbox.
  2. Connect the Hori Wired Mini (or one of the four controllers mentioned above) in the VX2 Aimbox.
  3. Connect VX2 Aimbox in PlayStation 5.
  4. Turn on PlayStation 5 (or if it has already been turned on, click the VX2 Aimbox button)

The steps above took about a minute. However, it took me a good week and a half, with support from a patient-based PR partnership and GameSir itself to work. The steps would have been described in this book, or the GameSir page would have been clearer, and the device’s hardware support would have been helpful, in that case, much easier.

As soon as it worked, in the end, I had a good time with GameSire VX2 Aimbox. You can customize it if you want, using a useful program, but it works well. That made it Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart a little easier, though there are games that can use the keyboard and mouse directly. Obviously, it doesn’t make sense that you would need a PlayStation 4 pad to get a PlayStation 5 controller, but there it is.

Is GameSir VX2 Aimbox worth it? If your console gets to the desk or somewhere you can rest the mouse and keyboard, yes. The original VX Aimbox stopped working, so VX2 is the type you can work on.

What if you already have VX Aimbox? Unless you have a PlayStation 5, it’s not worth buying, a wallet, or something else. If you own a PlayStation 5 and are willing to pay the price for Hori’s controls, try to take action.

But, on the PS5, be prepared for your first try as a test taker. Between incomplete instructions and a website page featuring gin-powered MC Escher, GameSir Aimbox VX2 is not an easy-to-use tool out there.
