Nintendo Switch and XiM4?
« on: 11:54 PM - 02/24/17 »
Here is the million dollar question will the Nintendo Switch have XiM support in the near future? I know a lot of you don't care for anything Nintendo but we're all gamers here.
XIM: 3/Edge/4/Apex | Titan: One/Two | XiM Link | PS4 Pro & XBox One X | PC: i7700k 1080ti ftw3 | M: Console: G502 - PC: Glorious Model O (White Matte) | KB: by the day and mood (60% to 65%) | Mouse Pad: by the day and mood (X-Large) | Console Audio/Mic: beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO & Creative Sound Blaster X7 | PC Mic: Samson G-Track | Monitor: 24" BenQ Zowie xl2436

It's a good question. I was going to wait and see. There is the question of whether it's possible at all from a technology perspective. But more so is the question of whether it's something people would actually use. I know Splatoon is a title that some may want support, but, it's unclear what the demand is.

I hope the Joycons are supported on other consoles. It looks like the new Nav.
Setup: XIM Apex, Titan Two, K780 keyboard, G Pro Wireless mouse, Logitech G440 mousepad, LucidSound LS30 headphones, Netduma router, Ubiquiti UniFi AP LR wireless access point

Do you know how much they will be sold separately?

Yes, if they are Bluetooth then we may be able to support them.

Looks like they use Bluetooth connectivity but charging sure looks like a huge hassle. Can only charge via the Switch tablet (so you actually have to own a Switch) or you can charge via some kind of Rechargeable grip accessory.
My Setup
Xbox One + XIM 4
Monitor: Asus 24" VG248QE
Mouse: Roccat Kone Pure Owl-Eye @ 2000 DPI 500hz
Mousepad: Coolermaster Swift-RX XL
Keypad: Razer Orbweaver Chroma
Audio: Astro Mixamp -> Amplifier -> Sennheiser HD800 w/ Antlion Modmic 4.0
Overwatch Linear Setup (click here)

Yeah I'm going to get this:

That looks like a nice solution.

I wonder how the charging times are for the "rail" system.

I'm going to buy two to hot swap. Also remember each one has 20 hours battery life, which should be enough for most gaming sessions.

I use a XIM primarily because I'm disabled and it actually allows me to play  console again. I would love to hear an update if anyone figures out if it'll be possible for the XIM to support the Switch. I am holding out hope that it will as I would adore playing the new Zelda. So any news would be greatly appreciated!

I would love this to be a possibility aswell I'm sure we could also get it working off the Pro controller. That's 69$ atm just FYI. Hell yeah splatoon. But I'm even more interested in other game support. Well what I mean is I would like the project to get going so that we at least have the possibility to play on non supported games just like on Xbox. As in even if there is no official download from you guys we can tweak settings to play on other games. That won't happen if we don't get any support at all!!! Here is hoping for splatoon and many other official supported games. But Mainly hope for others we can self diagnose by ourselves and share with other members

Is there any plan for any shooters to come to Switch?

Thank you so much! The XIM is one of the best purchases I've ever made. So helpful with my disability.

Reading through the Kotaku article had me :'( ... :D

Anyways welcome Icaryn!

I'm really vocally pushing for support. Truly is a next-gen console for Nintendo. I believe that Switch support should be the highest priority for the Xim team, and I am very surprised that there isn't more interest on these forums... pumping out STs from day one is HUGE!!!

This console is sold out everywhere and making big waves all over the internet!

This just does not look comfortable for anybody... even for controller players... SO MUCH potential for Xim4!
