GamingNexus got a chance to check out Microsoft's new Chatpad add on for the Xbox 360. They cover the weight of the unit, the feel of the buttons, and have several new pictures of the device.
Bring on the MMORPG's now!
5 stars in nexuses book.
This will make the MSN feature 100 Times better. The USB keyboard is bulky to use in a pinch.
this does look good, not to sure if i am going to rush out and buy it or not.... its just i havnt used MSN THAT much on the Xbox 360 as when you have that little see thru black box up you cant move your player or anything in a game, if they managed to change this then i would deff use it more. also having to move my keyboard onto my lap to type etc is annoying so i am going to welcome this lol. but not sure if i am going to rush out and buy it.
one thing i REALLY want to know about is the freakin mic situation, someone has said you wont be able to use our current headsets, but we are going to get one with this device, great if we are as we can use our current mics on the other controller if we want to do split online. but i havnt heard anything on the internet about the mic situation and deffinatly havnt seen a different mic (in picture format) i have attached a pic from the story, and was woundering what you guys thought the whole is for?
it sure looks like an orifice suited for the jack of a plantronix (the $29.99 model) headset IMO. btw, i got the xbox360 wireless receiver for the pc & this sure would come in handy.I wonder if the CHATPAD could be used in conjunction with wordpad or notepad?
I like this little attachment. Nice design that doesnt look out of place on the controller at all. I hope the PS3 get something similar in the future.
yeh its a nice design, i doubt i'll use it much tho i dont have many MSN buddies...of course if they bring out an Internet browser then...
although I've had a hard time figuring out how to populate my messenger, since it's not an option on the 360.
Wow it's the Duke all over again, but now with letters!
Looks like the boys were doing a little bit of the boozen.
I think that now that the device is available I don't mind having a browser on the 360. Also, now they can add features that may require lots of typing. i.e. clan support (posting news and events for the clan).
yea looks like they were gettin a lil lit up. but hey if they could still type on it and all being gased then i rekon it will work well for the sober
Nice I will get it just for shooting off messages to my friends and typing my characters name and such in games. It would be cool if some games also took advantage of the new device. In anycase I will pick it up immediatly if at a good price, eventually if not at a good price.
Ok now all I need is for M$ to make is so that I can change and link my hotmail account to my gamertag instead of the stupid yahoo address I used. When this happens I will be happy to use the controller and msn messenger on my 360.
genius design in my books all we need now is an internet browser
sweet. seems like ANOTHER accessory i'll be willing to buy.
