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.ID: gtdlrfm
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...ID: gtdvb55
Tell everyone you know who has vr to get their free adaptor now. I'm predicting they become rare in the near future.ID: gtdvyed
Official ones probably will, but third party ones will definitely pop upID: gtdtx60
I did mine about 2 weeks ago, got it slightly more than a week laterID: gtdy53w
Took mine about 2 monthsID: gte967t
I'm in Canada, mine took 2 days. I was pretty impressed.
Is that a crab?ID: gtejl91
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...ID: gtes79i
For MASSIVE damage
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?ID: gtdzoe5
Mine was 2 weeks from email.ID: gtdzti6
Thank you for the reply.ID: gteoktl
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.
