Like a month ago every place, like Amazon.de, ebay, etc. Was full of Xim Apex, Im from EU and want to get another one, but I cant find any place, and all the ones that have it, sell it for 250-300, @#$%?

It's pretty simple, there's a new controller coming out, and that controller needs a solid market at launch. There's no better way to create that, than starving the market of alternatives, prior to the release.

I'm sure I'll get hated on for saying this, but shortly after the Nexus is on the market and sold out, I guarantee the good old XIM Apex will miraculously appear back on virtual shelves.

That's not true. Components for XIM APEX are simply not being made due to the semiconductor and silicon shortages. Some of them have over a year-long week wait! Blame COVID, not artificially-inflated demand for NEXUS.

Those of us with a vested interest in APEX are suffering financially while waiting for NEXUS to drop, most of all XIM Tech itself. If APEX could be made right now, it would be made.

I do hope you're correct as I'd like to believe that. I'm also not a technological expert, but for that to be true, than I can safely assume that there's no semiconductors or silicone used in the new shipment of controllers?

The first batch or two of NEXUS units have been secured well in advance. Components are different, so there isn't so much of an issue to source parts.

It's still a big problem as the little guys get bumped to the end of the queue, but even Sony has announced production cuts for PS5 because of the shortages.

Is there any way to see our place in the waiting list or will it be an announcement and then it's first come / first serve? I have had all other version of the XIM including the original controller with USB (back in 2007/2008) and missed my chance for the Apex. Sad times.

We still don't know how XIM NEXUS will be distributed. It may not be sold direct from the XIM website. Hopefully we'll know more this month regarding pricing and availability.

with the release and 'success' of beloader with dual sense games interest should be up
it is for mei have a ps5 i managed to score in late summer, that is still in the box in closet because shortly after getting it the dualsense restriction for bf2042 was found out and put the kibosh on my plans for it. 
now with beloader hope lives again but no apex's so i'm on the waitlist as well
