That's surprising never expected it to be a controller I may just make the switch back to controller!! Am guessing this controller work best with game that have AA ?. Do you guys have price and release date??

Other than Apex Legends I don't use aim assist at all and Apex I mostly turn it on if I'm not on top of my game.

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.

The back buttons are far better than any other controller out there in my opinion. The placement is way more ergonomic and the click is perfect.

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

I will unlock it in a few days, i want to release a few other Nexus videos first :).
Fow now the video can only be accessed through the XIM Forum.


XIM apex St's and manager will continue to develop in case I'm still useless with the XIM nexus?

Yes absolutly, XIM Apex will continue to receive the same support as always, Nexus doesnt change anything in that regard :).

Congratulations ... must have been a lot of hard work getting there.


So we will still have to use ST's for console games ? I'm wondering how the Nexus will be for those games that can't get ST's, (like Saints Row, GTA etc.)
Will the motion sensor work or will we have to use it like an ordinary controller ... ( apart from being able to use curves)

Is there any chance this could perform better then xim apex (m&k), I always struggled with apex when spinning because I always hit turn caps and also had to keep repositioning my mouse to the centre of my mousepad, which distracted me from focusing on targets as I wasted precious time fighting the controls.

I feel like these issues are resolved with the nexus as when you use any controller you can never hit the turn caps and you will never run out of mouse pad space when using the joystick for larger movements and spinning. And you get the benefit of micro aim that m&k has while using the motion tech.

This will be great for open world/sandbox games like GTA/Far Cry/Battlefield, where there's a lot of switching between different vehicles. The thing I'm salivating to test the most, though, is how this would work with racing games.

I suppose the $64,000 question that everyone really wants to know, and I'm assuming that the testers have already experienced this...
How did it stack up in the internal tests when you tested it against Xim Apex players in a straight up shootout?.
It don't mean a Thing if you ain't got that Ping.

Question? Is there going to be a feature where are you can possibly change the sensitivity of the Gyro to fit different weapons hey for example sniper shots on the fly

This looks like a really cool controller I'm very much a mouse gamer but I'd give this a go. What sort of price is this targeting ? I assume it's expensive given the tech involved

Looks awesome. How much is it going to cost? There is any assumption?

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 :) ).

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 :)

I'm probably in the same boat here.  I think this is great for controller users, but I'm not one of those, nor will I ever be.  I hate sitting with my hands in close proximity like that on a controller in general as it's super uncomfortable.  Thus I will remain M&K.  Which is somewhat disappointing as this is probably the first XIM product I won't buy.

With that said, I thought one of the main selling points of the XIM (and often used as an argument in the "is it a cheat device") was that it is really for people who want to use "any" input method of their choice, which is quite necessary for disabled folk, which means this device won't be for them, at all.  Of course this won't be an issue as long as APEX continues to be in production and support.

With that said, it's great to see a motion controller that will probably never be topped, so good job OBsIV.  It's definitely a needed device in general.  I would def use it if I used a controller.  The only time I use a controller right now is when I'm using Xbox streaming on my phone (rare), which I doubt this device will work with.

Anyway, I just hope it does not stifle continued improvements on the XIM APEX, specifically on the software front, as I believe there is still room for improvement there.  A lot of features/requests that have been made over time that have gone to the wayside for more important things.

NEXUS needs an auth controller too, unless using it on PC.

This right here is very unfortunate.  I understand why, but this is a major drawback for something like this, especially a "controller" device.

I'm a very avid gyro gamer, and i play competitive splatoon. This product looks like a dream for me, and ill probably try and get it day 1.

I have a few questions.

What is the polling rate for the Gyro?

Is it possible to use with nintendo switch? (i want to try using this on splatoon 2 without the game's built in gyro to see if the smoothing can be lessened)

Can I disable y axis aiming on the right stick?

Is there a way to implement Jibb Smart's flick stick?

Are there any smoothing/acceleration settings for the gyro?

Is there a way to map a button to turn OFF gyro when held, or INVERT gyro when held?
