There are numerous ways to engage Motion Aim, toggling on/off is one of them.

NEXUS is a controller and can only present as such on console. It is possible on PC to appear as m/kb by routing NEXUS through reWASD.
Thanks. Any chance it could be enabled to switch to “keyboard/mouse mode” via firmware update? I imagine the Nexus would be more responsive and avoid slow turning issues in this mode.

Why would you want that? There should be no turning issues with a controller. If you want that kind of feature, then you might as well get a steam controller instead or play with native keyboard and mouse. Nexus wasn’t made for that.

As above, not sure why you'd want to do that when the analog sticks are always going to be best for turning with streaks, vehicles and just generally in the game. Sticks for turns, gyro for aiming.

To play in mouse and keyboard playlists, as I said.

In Halo Infinite, that’s the only way to turn off aim assist.

So yes, question. So as of right now, I use the 3rd party controller hori for xim apex on the ps5. So, with that being said, will I have to use the beloader or can I use the hori as I'm using now to emulate the controller? 

2nd, when the nexus goes up, will they be for purchase to ship or preorder to send out on a later date?

And last. Will the nexus have to be held at a certain degree in order for the controller to use the motion feature or can I be calibrated or adjusted within the app? I usually hold my controller at a 45° angle.

Third-party specialty controllers only work in launch PS5 games. PS5 won't be supported using a Hori controller. Remote Play using something like a Beloader does work, as does the official PS Remote Play app on PC & Mac.


The NEXUS gyros are calibrated with the controller on a flat surface, but you can hold the controller on any angle you like. 45 degrees may give you issues in regards to forwards / backwards range of motion for your wrists, but you'll adjust the what feels right.

I assume Nexus will use the same in-game settings as other XIM devices?

If so, will it be possible to lower the sensitivity of the right stick in the XIM Manager?

Yes the same ingame settings are required. Just like with other XIM devices you then dial in your overall sensitivity via the XIM config. In the case of Nexus you can set both your X and Y stick sensitivity via the corresponding Nexus game config.

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!

My thought is, sell me one now. I know you've got test units. I'd buy one for $500.00 USD. :D
