Price, cheaper?
« on: 01:24 AM - 05/03/12 »
So I looked at Obsiv's FAQ and he said it'd be $100 or less, does this mean that the XIM Edge will be necessarily worse than the XIM3? Because if its cheaper then it makes sense, can someone care to explain the difference in the XIM Edge and the XIM3, is it like the difference between the Xbox fat and the Xbox Slim or what?

more memory maybe faster chip no screen so more hassle to tweak without the PC.

No screen = cheaper. A colour LCD must increase production costs some what.

Tbh I always got the game manual with the control pad key bindings and setup up everything on PC anyway.
With ST's you don't need to tweak dead zones and translation exponents...

You just set you're ST to the game you want set the button layout and set you're sensitivity.

Will end up being around the same price of the XIM2 = 140 + to UK.
Said it before and I'll say it again!

OBsIV you need to come up with better international shipping, i don't know what or how you could do it other than having an EU based distributor, but customs charges are a @#$% joke.

He said hes looking into that mate. xim edge should have cheaper shipping, if it was 149 i will be annoyed. It should be atenner max to ship the xim.

I'm saying that's what it will end up costing EU ximmers.
OBsIV may still price it quite cheap.

But the p&p + customs.. expect all that to add anywhere from 30 to 50 (it's not even funny).
And don't get me wrong I'm not saying it for my benefit, i wont be buying one of these as i only game PC.

Just saying what i know will happen.

Hmm, I never considered shipping, I hope its cheap... it seems this product is more for the PS3 than anything, will it be worth getting it since I only have a Xbox 360 and will it be a hassle without the screen?

If my XIM3 died today, I would prolly wait for the Edge and buy that over a new XIM3.  That's mostly because I'm a cheap bastard though.

The admin fee (aka speculative invoice) will be a tenner in its self before any shipping costs.
