plans for next gen consoles?
« on: 06:56 PM - 05/08/13 »
Do xim developers have any plans for making a xim for the next gen consoles??
I'm sure that it wouldn't be difficult since they are basically downsized gaming pc's.

Just curious

Like every other thread asking this question: we won't know until we can get our hands on the new consoles. And that wont be until they are released to the public ... some time in Q4.

How would they have any plans if they have no info on the actual consoles? Why don't you wait until they are released and then ask this question. Its like me asking for plans on the cod ghost translator right now.

Next Gen Xbox supports usb 3.0 which is backwards compatible to 2.0 .
-In theory both the xim3 and edge should work if Obsiv is able to write algorithms for a new automated translator program.

Where has that been confirmed?

And in practice he will sell us a XIM4.

I personally saw the Durango kit. It had a usb 3.0 for the v2 of the Kinect.

Durango Kit?

http://www.theverge.com/2012/8/14/3241462/another-durango-development-kit-appears-on-ebay


http://kotaku.com/5934096/xbox-durango-development-kit-sells-for-20000


The listings have either been removed from ebay or were sold...it seems they were removed because you cannot locate a sold item page like normal.
sorry but its time to leave.... goodbye all!

oh...this thread again...


We have a ton of Dev Kits here in the office.

360 ones look like 360's.

Next gen look like small refrigerator sized PC's at the moment.


The original XBOX dev kits were actually Mac G5's.


However these could be legitimate. But the wired controller piece may or may not be there for the actual console.

Even the 360 kits run off a PC to load XBOX games..anyways long story short.

I wouldn't worry too much about it.

For those less in tune with the goings-on in the forums this is code for "Yes, it will work because a) I've tested it with the XIM3 or b) the USB architecture is close enough that a firmware update or slight modification in circuitry in the assembly process for new XIMs will allow it to work."

In reality he isn't saying anything. Between the lines he is.

Thank you Ninja for not not telling us nothing or something.
