Thinking of buying the XIM3 for BF3
« on: 10:58 AM - 12/23/11 »
Hey Guys,

So I have spent the last couple of days doing a lot of reading here on the forum - and I am still not quite sure whether or not I should go ahead and make the $300 investment for the whole XIM3 setup for my PS3.

I have been playing Battlefield 3 for the past couple of weeks - I love the game. However, the console controller just frustrates me. I have historically always been a PC FPS gamer but can't afford to spend thousands of dollars in order to play games to their full potential.

So therefore, I would be using the XIM3 on PS3 to play BF3 and potentially other FPS games once I get bored. I am thinking of purchasing the Logitech G700 and K340 - as I cant stand wires and will be playing some distance from the TV.

What I want to know is - is BF3 smooth and precise with the ST and will this setup work well with the XIM3?

For me it worked well... I think higher sens. players might be less precise... If all you play is BF3 then maybe buy it (you will have to decide how much is worth investing) However if you plan on keeping it for a while and playing many games  it's without a DOUBT my best gaming related purchase made.

I had no regrets once i tried my xim.

I agree xim2 was my best gaming purchase....then xim3 came out and that took poll position :)
All i play at the moment is BF3 and its great,  I have sniper headshots over 1000m and find it easy.

So I took the plunge - bought myself the full kit, hope it doesn't disappoint! Can't wait to try out my new XIM3 wireless setup!

Got a G700 and K360 keyboard :)

My only question is - what ST's are you guys using to play BF3 for HIP/ADS and what settings do I need to change on my G700?

@BF3: I use the HIP ST also for ADS. Seems a little smoother for me.

@Mouse: You can make all the changes by using the setpoint software. Just set the mouse to maximum (5700 dpi) and acceleration and speed to 0. The polling rate should be 1000hz. Thats all.

I am sure you will enjoy playing BF3 with your new XIM3. BTW, also set your TV to game-mode to avoid lags.

Are you all just using the BF3 ST? I know it will take some tweaking here and there but overall does the BF3 ST work alright?
