I was going to order it, I mean, it's only $30. But because I no longer use my Hotmail account on MSN (I use my personal e-mail now), and I can't change my e-mail address on Xbox Live, it'd be pointless to buy it. Sure I can use it to chat with Live friends, but since I only have 4 right now...

My bet is we see an internet browser soon to take advantage of this.:D

That'd be really nice, I'd dig a web browser for when my PC is down, I can still browse :)

At least MS isn't charging $50 for it like they do with their other addons. $180 for a 120gig HD? or $100 for the wifi adapter. Ugh. Cheaper than the PS3...RIGHT :\

This addon kind of makes the xb360 controller look the atari jaguar controller with all the buttons in the middle.

But I guess it still beats using a usb keyboard.

It would be nice if they allowed ingame textchat with this addon, as I'm not that big of a fan of voicechat in publicgames

I wouldn't worry to much about the date. They had a sale on the wireless controller (26 bucks!) and they stated that it would arrive in early October. I received an email this morning saying it was shipped. :cool:

I hope these are out over in AU. I need one to quickly tell those who message me from MSN to **** right off.

Seriously if my MSN says playing 360 then I'm playing 360. :D

Either that or I can turn off MSN on the 360. :o

Or you can change it to appear offline. That's what I do.;)

Is it really necessary to bump after 23 minutes?

MSN on the 360 is still not integrated well enough, it battles with your PC, rather than running along side it as a complimentary device.

I wonder if the addon will work with windows? How cool would it be to be able to bind all those extra buttons.

Probably, the others do.
