I wonder how much it will be and how heavy it it. Doesn't look that bad. I don't know if I' ever goin to need one though. Texting seems pointless when you have a headset. I don't want to chat on MSN.

I think it's pretty cool, would be nice for things like entering names for high scores, creating spell names (Oblivion), etc. But it better be around $20 or it just wouldn't be worth it.

I haven't tried myself, but can't you use a USB keyboard for all those things anyway? (Anything 360 UI-based?)

Yep. That's what I do.

Definitely more convenient than my current method of dragging out the USB keyboard, I'm looking forward to it.

maybe its a sign of more MMORPGs or a web browser, etc to come? MS is moving further away from gaming and more into making it a media machine so would it be a huge stretch to see a hotmail program and the like?

But the 360 still has crappy codecs and no way of watching your favourite movies on it without streaming or DLing for XBox live... That kinda just kills it for me, the propriety.

They don't need to add another perhiperal, they just need to include real mouse drivers.

Indeed....A simple KB and mouse will do MS...stop trying to drain wallets and add the freaking drivers.
