    XBOX Chatpad

    From what i have found they have not done an xbox beta yet but my question is to the pc people who have played the beta. how important was your keyboard for comm? and will a chatpad be a good thing to purchase before game??

    That's not really a fair comparison. Consoles were built around voice chat because of the lack of keyboard, most PC games don't usually have voice chat servers built in game. WoW didn't have one 'til the near end of Burning Crusades. So I'm sure for them the keyboard was more important than it is/will be for console gamers.

    It will work, but like the others said why not just use the local voice chat/xbox live parties?

    I believe they've said there is also keyboard support for consoles.

    Yes, this was confirmed in the IGN vid.
    Xbox/ps3 have supported keyboards for some time now, its simply plug one in and you can use it in search fields in youtube for example instead of the pad.

    Also, ps3/xbox mouse support isn't strictly supported but there are rather expensive devices that can help achive keyboard/mouse support.

    i was just thinking if they had macros that you could asign to the chat pad so when i press 1 on my chat pad it switches my shotgun for a sniper rifel.

    I mean just find a old dusty USB keyboard and plug it in. It will work, but playing a shooter MMO with a chatpad would be pretty difficult don't you think? And it would be tedious to unplug and plug it back in when you want to chat.
