the microsoft rep was in today, and for those of you who don't know, the wireless gaming reciever for $19.99 that is coming out is for your pc. you connect it to a usb port, and it allows you to use the wireless controllers, wireless racing wheel, or wireless 360 headsets on your pc.

Since you seem to be somewhat in the know. Will 1 receiver be able to handle input from multiple controllers, or do we need to purchase 2 to use 2 controllers at once?

i didn't look into that. i'll look at the sheet again when i go to work tomorrow, and see if it says anything specific. i would think it would handle more than one at a time, but are there any split screen, multi-player pc games? (serious question. not a pc gamer.)

I was hoping (wishing and dreaming) for a simple fast-foward on my music player instead I get this lame shuffle Feature which is basicly just like the Random feature we had before the update.
The only reason I vote this towards "Lame" is because my old old 11 year old Playstation 1
could fast-foward on music (and it had to do it without being on a hard drive which is harder and causes damage to the CD) and the CD came out fine even in CD-R and RW format. Five years after that (remember what the Playstation 1 could do...) the Xbox 1 only read very fine CD-Rs like Staples and Sony (ironicly) and some CDs. Besides that the 360 rocks and so does the update.-Crizzle C

Accessories accessories.. I bet MS could add that feature but I bet they want people to buy the remote. Why give the feature away when MS has a nice remote you can buy? I know the remote can do more than just FF, RW, etc... but its all about accessories. For all MS has done so far for the comsumer I can't knock em
