XCM Adapter for Xbox 360

Hardware developer XCM said today that it hopes to aid first-person shooter gamers with its XFPS 360 adapter. While it plugs into an available USB port on the Xbox 360 console, the adapter serves not only as a two-port USB hub for connecting additional controllers but also provides support for legacy devices. Users can plug in any PS2 keyboard or mouse to replicate the more responsive controls of many first-person games for computers; a port also exists to plug in PlayStation 1 and 2 wired gamepads, XCM adds. The adapter further mimics some third-party gamepads with switches to control the turbo function for specific buttons. No definitive launch information has been provided by the company, though XCM is expected to finalize the hardware shortly.
