The Technology of XIM
There are many "mouse and keyboard" console adapters on the market today, so, what makes XIM3 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. XIM3 is the only device that takes this mouse "translation" to the next level using its unique "Smart Translator" technology.
Through Smart Translators, XIM3 is able to provide unparalleled mouse precision unachievable by any other gaming adapter available. The problem is simple: when the mouse moves, equivalent aiming should happen on-screen (i.e. 1-to-1 movement). Every console shooter has its own unique look mechanic (aiming-system) that governs how the game controls and feels to the gamer. XIM3's Smart Translators is the only comprehensive solution for the entire look mechanic problem.
Smart translators are free and available at XIM3.com. Smart Translators are available for such popular games as Crysis 2, COD: Modern Warfare 2, COD: Black Ops, Halo Reach, Gears of War, Read Dead Redemption and many more with new Smart Translators always in the works. Even without a Smart Translator, the XIM3 still provides a much higher level of precision and will transform your gameplay experience.
XIM3's simplicity and flexibility is also second-to-none. Through XIM3's on-screen user-interface, it's quick and easy to set up your optimal gaming environment without requiring a PC or memorizing buttons to press. Even more, XIM3 will actually give you real-time feedback through its screen to help you find your optimal settings. For the most hard core gamer, XIM3 offers additional advanced options for further intricate refinement.
XIM3 enables a gamer to choose input devices that suit them best. The XIM3 currently supports a wide variety of popular gaming mice and keyboards from such quality brand as Razer, Logitech, Microsoft and MadCatz. Its hardware compatibility doesn't stop at just mice and keyboards. Support is also included for unique devices that utilize mini-joysticks for movement such as the Logitech G13 Advanced Gameboard and the Sony Playstation Move Navigation Controller. Mix and match different devices for your optimal playing style.
