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

    EDIT

    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!!!

    Joy. I spend enough time avoiding people on Messenger as it is, without doing it when I'm playing games too.

    Is your 360 linked to your passport account?

    Remove the people you don't like or "appear offline" on your 360.

    I am a little miffed that they haven't fixed the Issue where the HD DVD drive won't upscale without the VGA cable.

    the vga upscaling is a load of horse apparently, a friend of mine has the vga cable and he says it makes no difference. of course, he could have set it up wrong.

    I think you can 'appear offline' on the Messenger for 360.

    So, with MPEG-4 support will I finally be able to stream my DIVX files to the 360?
    It appears so. I have a couple of hundred GB of shows on my PC in DIVX format.

    I think it might include DIVX support.
    Apparently the PS3 can play DIVX files (someone correct me if I'm wrong) and you know Microsoft doesn't want it to appear that their machine can't do what Sony's machine can.

    Yes, I can see how using your voice can be a terrible inconvenience.

    One addition I'd prefer to see is a better interfece to streaming video of a PC.
    Just now its all in one long list, personally I wish they'd put it in folder, much like pictures of music.

    As for Messenger on Live, it's not something I think I'd use much.
