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. Feature Summary: Next-generation console input adapter Game on your Xbox 360 using your favorite PC gaming-grade hardware Mice, Keyboards, Joysticks, and Gameboard compatibility Unsurpassed in-game 1-to-1 feel thanks to advanced Smart Translator technology 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 Firmware upgradable Active community forum Gameplay videos: Modern Warfare 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBlMd3y8SHs&feature=player_embedded Black Ops: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4HzFmaeZtuc&feature=related Bad Company 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOynkGaGYAA&feature=player_embedded Halo 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3QIeGImOxI&feature=player_embedded Halo: Reach: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQlTyh8CG70&feature=player_embedded About XIM3: XIM3 Introduction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N828AUeUp5s 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: Smart Translators Inside Look. The acceleration is tweaked to the bare minimum: Acceleration Test. 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 one of the beta testers have confirmed the XIM3 works too. There's several converters that works with XIM3, so I've picked out those by preferences. Firmware upgradable PS3 converter: http://www.xim3.com/community/index.php?topic=7573.msg83022#msg83022 If it's ever blocked by Sony theoretically the adapter would just need a firmware update and you're good to go. From what I know it has only been tested on XIM1 and XIM2, but this should work with XIM3; since there's plenty of PS3 users on the XIM forum, they will confirm this shortly after launch, I bet. Cheap, working PS3 converter: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0042SB2I0/ Able to convert from Xbox 360 to PS2 and PS3; how well it will work on PS2 due to its different look mechanics I'm not sure, but it's been confirmed that this works perfectly on PS3 with XIM1 and XIM2. Since it has an updates of 62/63 it should theoretically work with XIM3, but it's so cheap you may want to just buy one for the heck of it. I would go as far as saying even XIM1 outperforms products such as XFPS/EEC/xScorch/MaxShooter.

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.
