One of the biggest differences between PC and console is the means of control given to you by the two.
On Xbox One and PS4, you’re given a controller – and whilst both consoles have the ability to accept keyboard and mouse input, many developers disable this to avoid unbalanced gameplay and unfair advantages.
On PC, obviously, you use a keyboard and mouse, or if you so desire, a controller. The former is widely considered to be the superior of the two, and whilst I prefer a controller myself, I’d be a fool to disagree, especially when it comes to first-person shooters.
Enter Xim4 – a small gadget capable of big things. Namely, allowing you to use keyboard and mouse on console, regardless of whether the game allows you or not.
Xim4 has the potential to up your game by a massive amount. Taking into consideration that, first, you’ll be a keyboard and mouse player in an ocean of controller players. Second, you’ll be able to fine tune even the smallest detail to your liking.
It’ll set you back a respectable $125, but if you’re serious about winning (like, really winning) then that probably doesn’t matter much.
I personally don’t have one. As I said, I’m more of a controller person, and it all seems like a hassle to someone who hardly plays first-person shooters these days. However, if this does look like the sort of thing that might interest you, then check out the review over on Gizmodo. They’ve got one, and they’ve been having a blast.
