I am on PC .. why no auth needed on PC .. i need auth on PC now .. will that change ?
NEXUS can appear as a native Xbox controller on PC. Or you can use the dongle and make it appear as an Xbox One, Series X or DualShock 4 controller, depending on the auth controller connected to it.

No authentication controller needed with Nexus on PC, It shows up as a standard X-Input device (Xbox 360 controller)

I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).

Really pleased for the XIM team. Looks like a quality product.

Although it's not for me, as an old school mouse and keyboard player, I can see it selling really well among controller players who want better accuracy, and there's a lot of those!

I'll probably buy one anyway though, 'cos it's XIM, right?  :)

Where's HL3?

XIM Apex, PS4 Pro + Crucial MX500 1TB, Xbox Series X, Allreli T9+, Swiftpoint Z, Aorus AMP500, AKG K702, Creative Sound Blaster X7, iFi Zen DAC v2, iFi Zen CAN, Eve Spectrum 4K 144Hz.

LIAN LI A4 H2O, ASRock Z690M-ITX/ax, Intel Core i5 12400, EK-AIO Basic 240, Crucial 32GB DDR4-3200, Samsung 980 Pro Gen4 2TB, Crucial MX500 1TB, KFA2 RTX 3080 SG, Cooler Master V850 SFX Gold and if you've read this far, you too are a genuine geek, my friend!

Most of the alpha testers including Obsiv fall into that category too, and they all were amazed by how accurate they are with Nexus compared to a regular controller! :)
The difference is night and day!

Awesome, team xim! There is no controller I have ever looked at and thought.. wow !

Initial thoughts are always with fatigue and how long one can keep tilting a controller for, but definitely no criticism of any kind of negatives as this obviously opens up alot for people who are unable to use sticks or even a mouse.

My second thoughts are on how good it will be transitioning from infantry, to turrets and then flying those sweet jets in BF 2042  :D Seamless ! Air combat has never sounded so good.

Congrats.

For those who havent seen it yet, the new XIM has been unveiled
(see here https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=3819.msg852948#msg852948)


What are your thoughts on it? Any questions on the new device? :)
edit: By the way over the next week I will release a new Nexus video every day on the XIM Central channel to celebrate the unveil!


Hi! Seems like a great innovative product, well done!

Is there away to get it to work on ps5?

By the way your video with the comparison between mouse, stick and nexus activated is not visibile in your channel.

Woke up this morning for work and saw the reveal. I was never originally a m&kb person but I learned years ago just from xim products. I haven't used a controller / couch combo in years for shooters. As a happy, loyal xim customer I'll def buy the nexus. But I suspect I'll still be a primarily apex guy, but I'll def mess around with the nexus.

Very smart of OBsIV to expand his portfolio and tap into a slightly different, younger audience. There's an entire gen of controller only players. Congrats on the reveal.

Now just waiting for info on ordering one.

Once this PS5 issue is resolved I'll use apex & nexus all the time I'm sure. I know it's going to get cracked soon enough.

What's better than using your whole arm to aim on console?
Well....using both arms apparently ;)

Will XIM Nexus work in PS5 with PS4 games if you connect it to the PS5? Also can XIM Nexus battery be charged with that USB cable to a PS5 and is it possible to use Nexus at the same time in playing games with as charging its battery at that same time?

The funny thing is thatís how kids try to aim when learning to use a controller. I have 4 young kids and all of them had to be taught to hold the controller in their laps instead of waving it in the direction they want to turn.

Motion aim is a very natural way to play. I was not a fan of gyro aim from other devices, but was pleasantly surprised how quickly my aim improved by tilting the NEXUS into the hitbox instead of my typical overshooting the target by a country mile with a thumbstick.

If you say so there is no doubt!
One question.
XIM apex St's and manager will continue to develop in case I'm still useless with the XIM nexus?
