    Looks fine, it's really so you can chat to people with MSN Messenger on the PC. Far from even approaching essential.

    And if you need to type, I think a normal USB keyboard would work better.

    Truth, but that negates the wireless aspect of the system.
    I have a two year old girl at the house, so I loves me some wireless.

    It's something I might pick up eventually, as sometimes it's kinda nice to not have to move between the PC and the Xbox to organize a game of something, but again, the software keyboard is just as suitable for that kind of thing.

    I'll probably get it, I have a habit of buying the useless stuff people make for game systems. The video they that was leaked last week made it look like the messenger could pop up over a game similar to XFire. Plus I've sadly started playing FFXI and I have to use my pc keyboard if I want to type which sucks going back and forth with it.

    Jaguar was the first thing I thought of when I saw it as well.

    Its all the more amusing since Jeff Minter has a Tempestish game coming out on the 360 soon, althougth the difference this time round is that said game won't be the only title worth having for the system.

    What are you talking about?
    The Jaguar was the system of choice for fighters.

    To date, there have been no fighters that rival Kasumi Ninja and Fight for Life.
    And, let's not forget how well designed the Jaguar controller was for fighters.

    I'm not entirely certain you could call them that.

    Thanks for reminding me, nothing beats a scottsman lifting up his kilt and shooting fireballs from his crotch.

    Looks like a typical Thumboard you see on an HTC Wizard.

    i still have kasumi ninja if someone wants it. £1 ono.

    also any old usb keyboard will work on a 360, including my rubber £7 one from ebay. this would probably cost near £30...

    Hmmm, doesn't really serve a purpose for me.

    I guess it is cool that they are doing it, but hardly something I see myself buying.

    That could be handy to have around. I hate trying to write messages with the game pad.

    I posted a thread about the add-on before I saw this, but it also has all the other Spring 360 update stuff

    Wow, the 360 controller just gained something like 36 keys!

    I wonder if I could get that mini keyboard to work on my PC (by hooking it up the the 360 controller I have on it), that would freaking RULE!!!

    You'd have to get those grip exercisers to lift that beast, let alone play games.
