XIM3: The Ultimate K/M Adapter

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Foreword:
I have a feeling I've posted in the wrong section, but does this go for PC hardware only?
This is not an advertisement; I'm only a fan of XIM3 and want to spread out the word to those who may be interested.
So please, do not consider this as spam or anything of that sort.

What is XIM3?
XIM3 is the highest precision Xbox 360 mouse and keyboard gaming adapter in existence.
It gives you a 1:1 PC-like mouse movements that you will never experience in any other products.
There is no adapter beside or above this beast.

•Next-generation console input adapter
•Game on your Xbox 360 using your favorite PC gaming-grade hardware

•Simple configuration through an on-board full-color LCD screen
•Real-time feedback through the LCD to guide you to your optimal settings
•Supports your existing Xbox headsets and chatpads

About XIM3:
XIM3 Introduction: Homepage: http://www.xim3.com
Forum: http://www.xim3.com/community/index.php?board=46.0

PC-less operation: This is obviously a critical one that I've talked about a lot. XIM3 will be a stand-alone bus-powered device (plug and play). And (surely to cause controversy among some), it will not support gaming through a PC as an alternative. The PC is an inherently insecure environment with all sorts of compatibility issues when it comes to XIM. I hear about many issues customers have with XIM that would be fixed by simply removing the PC from the equation.

Smart configs: With Smart Configs you don't ever have to think about configurating the right settings for each game, it has already been done, with the work of Smart Translaters.
Which is where a computer has carefully analyzed the look mechanics in a game through the camera, and specifically works to get aiming as you would expect on the PC front.
To have a little peak in how incredible precision the XIM3 can do, check out this video: Smart Translators Demonstration.
Have an inside look in how the Smart Translators work, watch this video: .
The acceleration is tweaked to the bare minimum: .
Note: The speed and acceleration have been improved even further!

Input peripheral compatibility: Not only is it compatible with any mice and keyboards, but it also supports all joystick, throttles, rudder pedals, racing wheels and game pads devices such as Logitech G13, Razer/Belkin Nostromo, Sony Move Navigator and every other peripherals that comes to your mind.

Firmware upgradable: XIM3 will be firmware upgradable (unlike XFPS which requires you to buy a whole new unit to get fixes). You will never have to buy a new device every time a fix has been solved.
You only need to plug it into your computer and the XIMFlash will do its work. Just plug it in and in a click of a button you're done.

Xbox-only: PS3 is not OFFICIALLY supported, but you can get a converter to make it work for the PS3. There are plenty of PS3 users on here using the XIM1 & XIM2 and apparently a beta tester has confirmed the XIM3 works too.
I would go as far as saying even XIM1 outperforms products such as XFPS/EEC/xScorch/MaxShooter.
You can even use XIM on PS2, though as stated, you're required to use a converter to work with PS2/3, but you can find converters that work really well for only 7 bucks.
If interested you can check the list for converter that works with XIM1: PS2-PS3 Working Adapters

Not least, the history of XIM:

Games with Smart Configs:
At the moment there's only Smart Configs for:
BFBC2
CoD4
CoDMW2
CoDWaW
CoD Black Ops
GoW2
Halo3
Halo Reach
L4D2
Monday Night Combat
Red Dead Redemption

This doesn't mean that you are only limited to these games, you can make your own custom configs to any other games, but there's nothing that beats Smart Configs.
Not long after the launch you will see Smart Configs for games such as:
Quake Arena Arcade (aka Quake III, Quake Arena)
Borderlands
Bioshock 1 & 2
Fallout 3 & New Vegas
GTAIV
Medal Of Honor
Unreal Tournament 3
Dead Space 2
Mass Effect 2 & 3
And many, many more.
Games titles will also be prioritized by the XBL's statistics.




Best regards,
The XIMers.

Inb4 Microsoft deems this as gamebreaking to consoles.

ATTENTION!

XIM3 is not out of stock, this is only a bug/glitch, because of overflow; too much traffic.
The store will hopefully open on Monday, but that is only speculation.

I would say it is, it's recently been launched.
Not for those who's been following the development now for a year.

I've moved it out of news as there was no article posted about it, and it was not formatted for the section. If you find a proper news article about it, feel free to post it in news, but make sure to format it. For an example of that, see this: http://www.overclock.net/news-overcl...ting-news.html just remember that the instructed section is defunct, use visible sections.

Ah, right; my bad. Thanks for the heads up.
I'll post one when I find not only a news article, but also a good review from a reputable site.

wow, this is a massive advantage over non mouse users in FPS imo.

If I had an XBOX 360 believe me I'd have it.

anything like this for the PS3, or are you natively able to use mouse/keyboard? I guess I haven't checked.
