The pint-size accessory plugs into the headset jack at the bottom of the Xbox 360 controller and has its own headset jack to let gameplay proceed with the usual verbal repartee.

The product runs on three AAA batteries and has an MSRP of $29.99. Keep an eye out: It will be available starting October at Best Buy, Circuit City, GameStop and EB Games, as well as on the Digital Innovations Web site.
