Xim Edge and BF3
« on: 09:01 AM - 03/27/13 »
Hey all, Ive just ordered a xim edge for my PS3 and ive had a Xim3 on my xbox for the past year.
but was wondering what people thought of bf3 using their Edge i recently tried out a friends Penguin United set up and if im honest it didnt feel good, ive only ever used my zim3 with MW3 and BO2 but ive been very impressed with how close to pc it is. Was it a case of the penguin united being shoddy or that BF3 wont work as well as CoD?

I play Battlefield 3 on the PC and on the XBOX and while I can't get them to be 100% identical with one another, I have gotten them pretty close. I would venture to say that you should expect to get as much out of the XIM with battlefield 3, as you put into it. Take the time to make the necessary adjustments until it feels on par to you. As has been stated previously, a poorly configured setup will result in less than adequate gameplay.

I have not played with a Penguin United, but I know that XIM sets the standard very high, and is second to none.. Most likely, the Penguin United was just bad.

Battlefield 3 works really well on the edge/xim3. The only downsides compared to cod would be low framerate and slower turnspeed.

Great Stuff!  ;D
My wife has gave me the green light to covert the cupboard under the stairs into my game room (Harry Potter style) I've currently got myself a razer naga but is it worth swapping it for a logitech g500? I hear that's what's used for the devopment of the ST's.

I wouldn't bother - i love my g500, but if you already have a mouse that has 5600dpi and like the feel of it, no use for buying another gaming mouse.

Hey if you have ps3, the new patch screwed with the look mechanic of the game. I think Mist said he'd try to fix it ASAP. But in general, xim edge is amazing.

Penguin United are responsible for the Eagle Eye Converter, it was a mouse & keyboard adapter too, but nowhere near the quality of XIM.
