I don't know about taking it to the next level but the controllers look amazing and the new Xbox One Chatpad is great.

Yeah its hyperbole but that chatpad has me super excited. Day one for me.

Also I got the elite controller from Amazon for £70! That deal got sold out in a matter of minutes lol

Is it really likely to be that useful? Sony had the same thing for the PS3 and it seemed to be almost completely ignored. I always just used a full size wireless keyboard whenever I needed to type on the PS3, which wasn't very often.

The PS3 chatpad was utter gobshite. Painful to use and the placement on the top half was soo stupid. With the 360 one, it worked so well and was very intuitive to use.

Sucks we have to wait till summer 2016 to get the programmable button support. Was really looking forward to capturing faster screenshots and game clips. I might as well wait it out until they add the button support and Im sure someone will have a sale around that time.

Gameplay or Communication?

Perhaps we can use it for hotkeying in games?

it'd be great for menu-intensive games like Wild Hunt... 'S' for Swallow, 'T' for Tawny Owl, 'M' for map, 'B' for Bestiary etc.

I really don't want to be "that guy", but you know Kinect's own voice features aren't taking off when they decide to reintroduce the t-mobile sidekick.
Speaking of which, when is Cortana going to make her debut on xbox one? seems like a damned logical step.

"Will Take Your Gaming to the Next Level"

Ha...sure it will. But it will be nice to have. Typing on the X1 is a burden.

HammockGames863d ago

Using the pad, yeah, painstaking.

Have you tried messaging with the xb1 smartglass app? I've gotten fairly comfortable using it.

Still, I do like the 360 chatpad. May end up getting this...

0to100863d ago

i was using smartglass on my iphone for messaging as the x1 dash is too slow at times.

also it's not as smooth as xbox 360 to access friends & recent players,

hopefully win10 will change all this & then this chatpad will be useful for all my trolling needs

NukaCola863d ago

I have never used smartglass but the PS App works really well with PS4 chatting with friends.

rdgneoz3863d ago

That or you just plug in a keyboard and chat easily.
