"XIM3 is Legit" - Microsoft
« on: 12:33 AM - 02/15/11 »
Okay, I know I said my last post would be my last post, but I thought some of you might be interested in this.

I wanted to interest some of my co-workers here in XIM3, but for them to show the least concern MS has to give the product a thumbs-up, or else it's simply a moot point.  So, I asked my good friend, Bella, at MS about the XIM:
Quote
Is it a violation of the XBox Live TOS to use a XIM3 keyboard & mouse adapter as seen here:http://store.xim3.com/XIM3_p_8.html ? Thanks.

 and here's what she had to say:

Quote
As I understand, you're checking if  using a 3rd party keyboard and mouse adapter on the console's going to be a violation to the terms of use.
 
The answer to the said inquiry would be, "no". You can feel free using the mentioned external accessories. However, we are unable to guarantee its efficiency with the console. We would highly recommend you to continue using the certified Xbox 360 accessory to optimize your gaming experience.
 
I hope I was able to help you on your concern today.

So, there you have it.  XIM3 is legit and you'll not have to worry about being banned for it.

Hope some of you find this helpful.

Razer, I don't want you to stop posting.
Maybe post less promoting Razer products, but when you contribute things like this, you're a valuable member.

Thanks, all.  It is hard to shake the marketing after spending 40 hours a week immersed in it.

XIM really interests me though, so I have a hard time staying away.  Just hoping to keep a low profile here.

Did anyone else chuckle at the part where she says,

  It kinda' cracks me up.

I hate that they say things like that.
Like 90% of Microsoft controllers have slow turn and not to mention the audio overload issue with the Astro mix-amp that causes random shots to be fire.  One of my wired's won't zoom anymore because apparently I wore out the joystick's push button.
Pretty frustrating.

You could also just read the Xbox Live Terms of Use... its not that long, I have read it.  XIM3 is not in violation of any rule.

My drug dealer highly recommends to continuing using his products for an optimized experience too, same concept I guess.
Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at the shadow.
