The UP5 is designed only for PS5 Games with Fightstick designation:
- PS5 compatibility is designed specifically for fighting games. It does not support left or right analog stick control.
- Some fighting games that do not have a native designation for Fightsticks may not work
- If a game is unsupported, the UP5 may stop functioning on the game after 8 minutes.
The Brook UP5 is compatible only with Universal Fighting Board, PS4 Fighting Board Plus and Brook PS4+ Fighting Board with Audio at this time. Requires firmware update
The Brook UP5 may see additional compatibility with Brook's other control PCBs, but at this time is not compatible with the following devices:
To use the UP5, you must install the latest Brook firmware for your device. Please visit the "support" tab, or scroll to the "support" header on mobile, for a link to Brook's firmware update site.
Brook remains the premier manufacturer of multi-console input PCBs in the Fighting game market, developing solutions across Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo, and much more. Sony's latest generation console - the Playstation 5 - will usher in a new era of ultra high definition fighting game titles. With the PS5 Add-On, current owners of the Brook Universal Fighting Board with Headers, Brook PS4+ Fighting Board with Audio v2017 or Brook PS3 PS4 Fighting Board + do not have to purchase a new PCB to play.
Those who own the Brook Universal Fighting Board with populated headers - most notably the JST S5B-PH-K-S 5-Pin header, which attaches to the UFB's J2 space - will find installation straightforward. The add-on includes two harnesses - one that connects it to the J2 header, and another that connects the add-on to the ground and 5V terminals on the UFB. Brook provides a helpful install video that you can review by clicking the "video" tab, or scrolling to the "video" header on a mobile device.
As of now, the Brook Super Converter and Wingman series are allowed by EVO, one of the most popular global tournament events. Often EVO's policies are adopted at smaller tournaments. This policy is a tentative acceptance - should the converter become disabled via Sony firmware update before EVO, it could face a ban. You can learn more about it here.
