Xbox ChatPad: The Un-wrappening


Posted August 31, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

it snaps right on to your controller and basically does exactly what you'd expect. Also, although you can't see this in the picture, the keys emit a little bit of light, for in-the-dark playing.

The final test is the most important...how does it work for sending horrible threats and messages to my online "friends?"

Works great!
