As the title says: Why not call it PIM/PSIM instead of XIM for the Playstation.

If a new XIM is made only for the PS3 it should have that name, not until it does.

As we all know that XIM stands for Xbox360 input machine, i think its just a tad odd that it's called the same for the ps3, I know it was originally made for the Xbox, but now that it works for both I don't mind it changes the name. It doesnt have to chaneg for the XIM1 but I think they are trying to make something that wont need the ps2 adapters and when they've managed that it could change.

Tell me what you think and vote :)

Nice job on the logo.

Playstation really isn't supported or a main goal of the builders (at least not yet). So it's never been officially made for Playstation, only works through some creative people finding working adapters.

So I guess until there is an official Playstation model, the XIM name remains.

Yeah, but i think i remember reading somewhere that they were trying to find a way for the ps3 without the ps2 adapter, I'm not 100% sure tho. Thanks for the compliment :) Photoshop is what i do as a hobby.

That would most likely fall under the category of PSIM if it were ever made.

Maybe one day, but for now it looks like the focus is on supporting XIM2, improving the software, and possibly working on improvements to the hardware.

We have plans for official support for the PS3. As of now, people are just using adapters to get an Xbox 360 device working on the PS3. I've had some ideas too but I never really discussed them since the Xbox version has always been OBsIV's priority.

P.S. Nice logo  ;D

Oki, I would more than likely make the logo for the device when its made, I could just do some more on the one I got allready, the crossmark, thanks by the way :D

A name is nothing.  I'll go to bed sleeping comfortably knowing that my refresh rate is 2x that of a 360 users.....at least on XIM1.  Love.  My.  XIM. 

Or PSIM. Whatever. 

It rules.
