Microsoft's Xbox One Controller Chatpad

 

Microsoft has just launched their Xbox One chatpad addon for their Xbox One controller for Wondows 10 and Xbox One, allowing gamers two extra bindable buttons on their controller and a full keyboard. 

This allows games using the Xbox One controller to more easily type and use chat functionality on controller driven games, improving the gaming experience. This keyboard is backlight and has full controls for use with a headset, leaving control of your gaming experience right at your fingertips. 

 

          Compose messages to friends, enter codes, and search apps in seconds with the Xbox Chatpad. Get to your apps quickly with two programmable keys. The Chatpad plugs into your Xbox One wireless controller, putting a backlit keypad and headset audio controls right at your fingertips. It also includes a Chat Headset with 3.5mm jack, so you can plug directly into the Chatpad. Use the Chatpad with both Xbox One and Windows 10.*

Features

 

  • Full QWERTY keyboard
  • Backlit keys
  • Audio control at your fingertips
  • Includes chat headset

 

The Xbox One controller only supports Microsofts Windows 10 OS and will not function on Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, so please only purchase this controller if you can make use of it on your current OS. 

Right now the price of the Xbox One chatpad is $34.99 in the US and stock is expected to arrive in the US and EU soon.

As cool as it is.. let's have some real Xbox games on PC before they start releasing accessories. Otherwise they have little use. Hopefully releasing these is indicative of them making some PC ports.. would love to have Halo or ForzaQuote

I think that accesory is mainly focused towards xbox players since the normal on screen keyboard can be absolute e.Quote

It's already been available for Xbox? Couple of my friends have had them. On PC it's new and hopefully doesn't require drivers but I figured that will all these new accessories for PC they are making it means they are indeed making some xbox games for PC. Just wishful luckQuote

This is the release of the OFFICIAL chat pad for both XB1 and PC. XB1 controllers are designed to work with Win 10 from release. Same as any accessories for the controller, XB1 runs on a cut down version of the Win 10 OS. Microsoft are really pushing compatibility between all official accessories for the XB1 as they have also pushed the Windows Store to become a AAA game outlet rather than just small games and apps as it has been previously.Quote

Presumably this will work with Steam big picture so that will be cool.
