I asked about aim assist on youtube but ya answered there. SW BF2 aim assist is horrible so id be interested in seeing gameplay for that if possible.

Product looks great, but I hope someday they add the same feature to a standard PS4 controller to give it similar functionality.

Iím still going to get one tho, since gyro with controller is my preferred way to play.

Iím very excited for a gyro solution that will work on PC and consoles out of the box. I use steam input with DS4 and I think itís great, but I havenít been able to get that on a console until now.

Glad we can finally talk about this. NEXUS has been in development for 3 or 4 years. With next-gen consoles supporting more AAA titles natively, OBsIV felt it was time to offer something for controller users.

I am a die-hard m/kb user and was very sceptical about motion aim as it sucks hard on PS Vita, Wii, Wii U, Switch, Steam controller, DualShock & DualSense etc. NEXUS however is very, very slick by comparison.

I've gone from completely useless with a controller to competent thanks to NEXUS' motion aim. NEXUS works beautifully with Aim Assist, and recoil is dead easy to control by simply tilting the controller forward.

Bad controller users like me are finally going to feel comfortable gaming from the couch. Good controller users are going next-level with this thing in their hands!

All XIM 4 and APEX STs work with NEXUS. The PC STs you've seen pop up lately are designed for NEXUS but also work with APEX and XIM 4.

NEXUS won't completely replace APEX yet for me in online multiplayer games as I'm far more experienced with m/kb, but I can at least compete with controller users with a NEXUS. I've dropped APEX for all single-player gaming as NEXUS is so much easier to setup on the desk or couch and is an absolute blast to use :)

So is PS5 support never going to be an option with the nexus? Or is there a chance it could be added down the line through updates?

So stoked!

NEXUS is in the same boat as APEX. Obviously XIM Tech wants to support PS5 as soon as possible, but it's contingent on finding a solid & reliable workaround for DualSense-locked games.

I haven't tested NEXUS over Remote Play myself, but I believe OBsIV has and it works.

This controller is truly next level, im confident that the accuracy boost this controller provides can change the whole controller vs mouse debate in the long run. Its just mindblowing how accurate you can be with it and it literally doesnt take any big transition time to get good with it (unlike with controller sticks).

First of all congratulations on the announcement super excited for you guys I can't believe I didn't guess this seeing a old vid of you trying motion stuff years ago.. Looking forward to seeing how the final product preforms. The way the 4 back buttons are positioned how does it feel in terms of pressing as a good click feeling is a must for me. Also might be a dumb thing to ask or add now but ima say it anyway is it possible to add mouse clicks on the L1 R1 instead of conventional methods for faster actuation?
