XIM Edge Adapter taking Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 Shooters to a New Level of Precision

October 22, 2012 - XIM Technologies, Inc. is proud to announce the availability of the latest in its line of high-precision console mouse and keyboard adapters: XIM Edge. Fully customizable and easy to use, XIM Edge has the flexibility to adapt your gaming-grade PC input peripherals to your favorite Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 games. Through advanced technology called Smart Translators, XIM Edge is able to provide a level of mouse accuracy unachievable by any other gaming adapter available. XIM Edge is available at XIMEdge.com in our XIM Store. MSRP is $89.99 and worldwide shipping is available.

The XIM Advantage

XIM Edge is a multiplatform input adapter that, at its core, shares the same Smart Translator engine that XIM3 (its predecessor) pioneered to provide unsurpassed precision in console shooters. A XIM Edge can be used on both Xbox 360 and PS3 – the same device – without any additional hardware. Simply plug your XIM Edge into either console and game.

There are many "mouse and keyboard" console adapters on the market today, so, what makes XIM Edge so different? The answer is simple: precision. Making your high precision mouse feel right in a game that was designed for controller thumb sticks is difficult. All console shooters have different levels of "aim-assist" that makes them playable using the typical low-accuracy controller. If done incorrectly, adapting a mouse to these games will result in aiming that feels jerky, unresponsive, and detached. XIM is the only device that takes this mouse "translation" to the next level using its unique "Smart Translator" technology. XIM’s Smart Translators is the only comprehensive solution for the entire console aiming problem that produces “1-to-1” results.

Smart Translators are created per-game and are available at no charge from XIMEdge.com. Smart Translator support is provided for such popular shooters as COD: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, COD: Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3, Crysis 2, Resistance 3, Gears of War 3, and many more with additional game support always in the works. Smart Translators are normally provided within days of release of popular titles.

Where You Want To Game, How You Want To Game

Whether you are a traditional PC gamer that prefers gaming at a desk or you come from a console background in the living room, XIM Edge has you covered. XIM Edge supports a wide variety of wired and wireless mice, keyboards, gamepads, and joysticks. It even supports use of the Sony Move Navigation (“Nav”) Controller wirelessly. Combine the Nav with a wireless mouse and a rigid mouse surface for comfortable yet precision gaming from your couch. XIM Edge even provides Xbox 360 desktop gamers the ability to continue to use their existing wired headsets and chatpads. For those gamers that just want to use their Xbox 360 controller on their PS3 (or vice versa), XIM Edge supports that too.
