The XIM 4 Keyboard and Mouse Adapter makes console feel like a PC


Building your own gaming PC is not exactly a simple or cheap endeavor. You have to have some manner of understanding of what parts you’ll need, where to get them, how to put them together, and the money to fund it all. Even if you have a friend to help you, you’ll be looking at far more than the cost of what a console would be to put together something decent. If your budget doesn’t allow for that amount of spending, then getting a console will at least sate your appetite for gaming.

If you wish you could use a keyboard and mouse on your console for a bit more precision, then the XIM 4 should be able to help you out. This adapter will let you play your PS4, PS3, and Xbox 360 with the mouse, keyboard, or other compatible button-laden device of your choice. This is a 1-to-1 device, so you shouldn’t have to worry about any delay between when you press and an action happening in the game.

This is easy to set up through its wireless smartphone and PC configuration tool, and will make it feel like you’ve spent thousands on a quality setup, without having to pay up. This has a 6′ braided microUSB cable, 2 USB ports, and will play nicely with Android phones through Google Play, or by downloading software on your PC. Of course, this isn’t a cheap add-on, so you’ll have to be willing to part with $149.99 to up your gaming experience.
