For anyone who was interested.... I had hoped it would just be a straight through usb plug conversion, but alas... It is not.

The chip on the first pic is a USB 2.0 hub controller, also used in the PS Classic. Maybe it just converts the signal to USB 3.0 for the PS5.

Isn't usb 3 inherently backwards compatable?

The aj2019 seems to be a digital/analog convertor...

I don't usually look into chips and what they do, but I just can't understand why the ps4 camera can't just plug in, even with a straight wire to wire conversion. There must be some hardware decoding stuff in the camera?

How long did it take for your free adapter to come in? Ordered mine a week ago...

2 weeks.

Tell everyone you know who has vr to get their free adaptor now. I'm predicting they become rare in the near future.

Official ones probably will, but third party ones will definitely pop up

I did mine about 2 weeks ago, got it slightly more than a week later

Took mine about 2 months

I'm in Canada, mine took 2 days. I was pretty impressed.

Is that a crab?

It is! I've seen similar logos on many chips over the years... I think realtek used to use one even.

Rather friendly actually, that's on the USB hub chip...

I contacted Sony about 2 1/2 weeks ago about the adapter and I got a email stating they’d contact me once they verify.

How long does this process take for them to ship out the adapter?

Mine was 2 weeks from email.

Thank you for the reply.

It seems to be random, it took them about a week to ship mine in March. I never got a follow-up email, just the dongle in the mail. I've heard contacting tech support can help speed it up.
