Great news. For me personally I think its only Killzone 3 Im desperate for an ST.

Although if they got STs for Uncharted, SOCOM and Starhawk then I would have to buy it!

Its much more than no GTMax, remember that XIM3 had perfect synchronization between all your input devices, the controller, and the console. Edge does the same for PS3 now. Turns out PS3 runs at a slightly lower rate than Xbox for controller polling (100Hz vs. 125Hz). XIM3 assumes that it's talking to an Xbox. GTMax would convert 100Hz to 125Hz. Edge does no such thing so you don't have that timing mismatch. In fact, the suggested poll rate for your mouse will be different if you are using your Edge on an Xbox or a PS3 because of this difference. This is all documented in the Instruction Manual which I'll release at a later time.

OBSIV why does the PS3 poll at a lower rate than the xbox? that doesnt make sense.

But will i still be able to up the polling rate on the edge using my ps3 with a G500 to say 500hz?

Yes, the polling rate of the mouse isn't the same as polling rate on the edge.  So you can set your mouse rate independently of what the edge is doing with the console.

Wow I’ve been gone for a couple of months and come back to XIM Edge!!  You are making a 50 some year old man feel like a kid before Xmas checking the toys he wants and just salivating with anticipation, come on ObsiV I NEED XIM EDGE before I die!
Just wanted to really say thanks for not forgetting about us PS3 players. I will be patiently waiting (not!) for the release and let us know if we can preorder.

I have a question for OBsIV, after all the talk on here about no PS3 support, and all the "XIM stands for Xbox Input Machine" comments from everyone what made you change your mind and show the love to the PS3 community?  Did you finally get tired of hearing all of us keep asking for it?   :D  Trust me I am not complaining, just curious more or less.
