this sucks, their has got to be a better way to type because right now it takes me like 4 days (ok not 4 days for real but it's long) to type a response to someone.

This looks like it will be heaven sent. For when you need to just type something real quick.

but I love gadgets and this one is pretty nice fit with the 360 controller, I think I just might pick this up.


PS3 already have a MadCatz typing peripheral to attach to the controller, and it sucks. It take a USB port to run and fit in the upper part of the controller, so you cant type with your thumbs... Just hope that MS peripheral is more useful. At least it already fit much better to the controller.

PS2 already have something in the like of MadCatz and MS peripheral, but from Nyko, and the keyboard come with ("glued") the controller. It's in the MadCatz way, in the upper part, and it's equal somewhat unaccessible.
