XIM1 for PS3

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

 

Long time no see (or chat) :)

 

I've actually been playing lots, but on the PS3. I can't really afford to upgrade my PC anymore, I've still got the PC I bought for GRAW1. My XPS M1710 can't handle any newer game that cod:waw.

I found the XIM1 for PS3. It's the best keyboard and mouse for the PS3 and their isn't any lag (Know I've noticed).

The problem with mice on the PS3, is that the software needs to simulate the thumb stick motion/movement inorder to play and every game is slightly different. This is know as dead zone. And config files need to be created for each game inorder to play.

 

The only problem is you need a pc or laptop running the software at the same time, the xim1 plugs into this, then you connect the xim1 to the ps3 via ps2 to ps3 adaptor.

Heres more info:

 

Xim1 ps3 guide

 

Advantages:

 

-You can use you your already purchased mouse and keyboard setup

-No need to upgrade console

 

Disavantages:

 

-Exspensive you will need to buy Xim1 (£43.33) and adaptor (£20)

 

-Becareful buy adaptors, Some cheap ones blocked by psn new update (this is because a new mod/hack uses the usb to play chipped games)

 

Heres a list (i got the logic 3 from maplins and works great at 63 frames per sec)

 

adaptor list

 

-Xim1 is nolonger in producation (xim 2 or 3 are out, but are hit and mis on working with ps3)

 

-xim was disigned for xbox360 but luckly enough works better on ps3 (maybe advantage)

 

-the xim1 software has the same signiture as a virus, so your have to tell your virus checker to ignore it.

 

-Your have to wait for people (or do your self) new config for games when come out.

 

-Your have to have a HDMI monitor, and connect your ps3 near your pc setup.

 

 

 

It really is good, but auto aim on ps3 controllers allows pad players to be as quick and mouse users, so don't think it'll be a walk in the park.

 

 

Ebay is the best play to get it (but this seller only has 2 left):

 

Seller 1

 

I'm looking into doing one my self, so i might sell mine :)

 

Kind Regards
