glad you read the description...


Hook up any existing USB hardware to your Microsoft Xbox. Currently Iomega's drives are supported for memory card replacement as well as keyboards and mice are usable under Xbox Linux for instance. The cable plugs into the Xbox controller socket and offers one USB type A female socket. You can connect any USB device, however it is recommended to check whether the hardware is supported by the software you are using. Up to four of those cables can be used to directly plug into the Xbox controller sockets at once.

so you can't use it if you don't have Xbox Linux.

Has anyone tried this? Do you think it would work with the USB/Force Feedback 2 version of Microsoft's Steering Wheel? Dam that is the best games steering wheel!

A keyboard!! For what? When all your controls are in your hands. And why type what you say when you can just talk through the mic.???
Its useless for a console game, i had it for PSO and i had to run to a safe corner to type a message.

some people want a keyboard because they dont like to talk

So youre sayin that they would prefer to stop playin and have to type what theyre sayin. I just dont get it. If you want to hide your vioce then, mask their vioce. If this to benefit those who cant talk then i understand. Its like me playin basketball, and then choosin to use a wheelchair.

First off who said that having a mouse/keyboard is an advantage over the controller?? I will rape you mouse/keyboard jockeys with my controller, but I dont think I'm going to have to. . . . It says the software must support the keyboard for you to use it, and I dont think any FPS will support it, but hey ya never know.

I'm sorry, but that type of person, is also someone who is a little more insecure than they need to be and really should try not to be so introverted, by going out a little more and getting some sun.

Just my $.02.:confused:

lots of people say it. I agree with you though the mouse and keyboard are great for targeting but lousy for movement. I dont want the keyboard for comunication or movement though.

i dont like keyboards and i dont see whats wrong with a controlller why do u need a dam keyboard?

I have went in depth into the value of the keyboard and this is from someone who wont use one for control or comunication. Maybe you dont agree with me but dont just disregard my reasoning.


This is what a keyboard and mouse can give you.

Hey BigWig, I got NWN and I must say. It is pretty sweet.

I still think a keyboard for the xbox is useless though.

Right now the keyboard is useless. Most good console FPS work better with a controler. Some more direct PC ports dont so some folks might want a keyboard for some PC ported FPS. I dont think the whole moding thing will take off for a while but if and when it does a keyboard will be handy. Also you will be able to net surf on Live
