    Waste of time. Considering you can get a USB keyboard for under £5.

    I have a theory that since the keyboard uses a 4-pin interface (like a certain common plug type), you could theoretically plug in any 360-compatible USB device! (in theory of course)

    I gotta say that it could look a lot worse. At the same time though, I'll stick with a full size USB keyboard.

    I'd like to see you inventing a better combo of keyboard and pad.
    Really, if you do, post it on ebay, I'll buy it. [​IMG]

    Ebay inflates prices on some things. I got mine for under £5 in a normal shop [​IMG]

    You can get 360 controllers at my local liquidation store for $10 CAD. [​IMG]
    Though not the wireless one. Plus it is usually hidden under a mountain of garbage.

    I've read about this earlier, it's pretty nice.
    I'm prolly going to buy this when it gets out.
    Along with the spring update, this should totally rock.
    Hope they don't figure out a way to kill my Xbox Live subscription :|.

    Q~

    Yes, it goes in the microphone jack. Whats not to understand? The jack works the same as any other connection, it just sends data from one lead to another.

    I think I'd like this better if it would just be just that little, but not connected to the controller that tight.
    If it came with an extension cord, it'd be nicer to hold in the hand.

    Not neccesarily, sound data is no different than any other data, it's how the device thats receiving the data interprets it thats different.
