Along with the apex what else will I need?
« on: 07:11 PM - 02/27/18 »
So I plan to get the apex. I have a mouse and keyboard already.. I see posts about other stuff on amazon that they are buying alongside this.. something about cords.. any ideas what else is needed? Iím not very tech savvy..

Also, I have the Astro a50ís.. any idea of these are compatiable with this device? Thanks in advance!

You'll need a genuine PS4 or XB1 controller (they come with the console) and if you're on Xbox, you'll need a micro-USB to USB cable for the controller to the Apex.

Just use the cable you use for charging your controller (assuming you have one).  That's what it will use to feed the controller's input to the XIM.

Iíve heard that it has to be one that can do data transfers and not just a power cable. I bought the Microsoft licensed one and it worked for my XIM 4.
