Post by: Chritalia on 10:21 AM - 06/09/13
All in tittle.

I'm a PS3 player but connection on PS3 is a shame.

So i think, i will go to Xbox One for next console generation.

I doubt Edge will work with One. I ain't too sure on compatibility with USB 3.0 & 2.0.

Looks like xim lives on Xbox one!!! Confirmed that xbox one will use ONLY wireless controllers but can be tethered via USB to Xbox one for charging but when USB is used, xbox one's wireless controller will shut off wireless transfer and shift to USB data transfer solely!! Basically what the PS3 does right now.  The question is if Xbox one uses USB 3 or USB 2.  Seeing that most PCs have NOT started using USB 3, I think it is still likely to see USB 2 in action.  If not we can always use USB 3 to USB 2 adapters... I mean pfff companies always like to make male and female parts for interconnecting sex xD

This is what micro usb 3 connector looks like:

And this is usb 2 version:

What do you see in controllers:

(http://lowfatgaming.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/ps4-controller-2.jpg)

So, controllers will use usb 2.0

Huh... That's odd... Even Microsoft said Xbox one will be on USB 3.0 and battlelog on the BF4 page says Xbox one paired with USB 3.0... Maybe they are using a different micro plug? Or the design still hasn't been rendered fully to USB 3.0
Title: Re: XBOX One or PS4 > Compatibility with Edge
Post by: Chritalia on 12:40 PM - 06/11/13
Micro plug on controllers and on Xbox or PS4 i think it's USB 3.0
Title: Re: XBOX One or PS4 > Compatibility with Edge
Post by: roads on 01:28 PM - 06/11/13
The USB-3.0 Mini-B looks like a 2.0

scroll down to the pics of the different USB 3.0 connectors.

Googled a little. For DS4 all articles say micro-usb. For X1 controller some articles say mini-usb, but it still seems it is micro-usb. So it is 2.0.

And think about it. Where they would need USB3 for? Those are still controllers and dont have any kind of display or something modern. They probably dont even need more speed than what usb 1.1 can offer.

Also DS4 will use Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR for wireless connection. So wired should not require more(?). That would be 3 Mbit/s transfer speed. USB 1.1 has 12 Mbit/s transfer speed.

Doesn’t look like micro to me its much thinner than what we see on the controllers.

According to an IGN source, the new data port is indicative of a new Microsoft strategy to take control of the accessory market.

The new port means that current headsets by leading accessory manufacturers, including Turtle Beach, will not work with Xbox One.

According to the source, the propriety data port means Microsoft can control the production of third party peripherals with licensing and authentication standards that manufacturers will be required to meet.

When questioned on the subject, a Microsoft spokesperson said the company will share fresh details on how third party peripherals will work in the future.

"We are working with 3rd party headset manufacturers to create new headsets that will take full advantage of the Xbox One technology," the rep said.

Xbox One will come bundled with a new iteration of its Kinect technology. The hardware features voice technology which will allow chat both in-game and via Skype.

So I'm thinking with MS in control of those ports and it checks the system I see it being a problem for XIM...I maybe wrong but I'll let someone else spend the money.

Post by: Od1n on 09:48 AM - 06/13/13
thats not a problem for XIM mobrico as an official controller (xbox one or ps4) will be used to run the XIM
therefore the console will think an officially licenced controller is attached

http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/xbox-one-controller-feature

"Internal Battery Cavity –The compartment that houses AA batteries is built into the interior of the controller, providing more room at the bottom for your fingers to grip. Another convenient improvement is that the controller is both wireless and a wired– simply plug it into your console with a micro USB cable and the connection automatically switches to preserve battery life."

It stands to reason the XBOX ONE controller will transfer data thru the USB cable when plugged in if the wireless feature "switches off."  If so then perhaps the Edge will be able to work on the new system.

I am seriously considering picking up an edge... I simply just prefer gaming with a keyboard/mouse.  Plus MS will support the 360 for 5 more years so its not like all the good games coming out won't be available for the 360.

I'll tell you now that when you get to use your XIM on Xbox One you will like it a LOT more.

Post by: survivorman1999 on 07:57 PM - 01/13/14
^^  I second this.
I had the XIM 3 and XIM Edge and both worked phenomenally with XBOX 360.
I used the XIM Edge on PS3 and it wasn't the same.  A little more laggy and different feel. 
It also depended on the game as well.

Thank you MoBRico for your reply. Would you please suggest me the best gaming headset under $80.

if you are a xim edge xbox one user i would recommend you to get a wireless headset that doesnt require a connection to the controller
eg the official microsoft wireless headset or those from turtle beach or asto (some of them require a controller connection so check their setup)

if you are on xbox360 then basically every headset will work, you can get anything that works with the xbox360
