Today I downloaded the new Xbox Live update with Messenger. At first I thought, "This is sweet!" then i noticed how hard it is to reply to your friends who have keyboards while you have a controller. You also can't do the stuff you can normally do on MSN so rly the interactivity is cut down a little.

No idea WHY Microsoft did this.....

It's the whole cross platform crap that they seem to love so much.

I think that it's a complete waste of time and I won't be using it and I doubt many will either.

Ok first off what the fuck did you expect with a controller?

Second they are releasing a keyboard add on.

Third off you can plug in any USB keyboard to your xbox 360.

Fourth off I've used the thing, and it's not as difficult as you make it seem. I had pretty long convos just going around and picking out the letters with the controller.

It's actually a rather useful feature for people who still want to be in contact with their friends on MSN while they are on the 360.

QFT.

Its a free feature so why are you complaining? If it cost you money then you have a fair point, but you didnt so shut up.

I understand you all perfectly well. It is a pretty awesome feature to use, though i didn't know about the keyboard attachment thing so don't bug me about that.

But at least we don't have to use the controller anymore (once it comes out...).

It looks awsome.

Imagine this, you're playing Gears of War, ranked server, and instead of everyone not shutting the fuck up, they are typing. You guys see, this can be a GREAT tool. I am personally very excited for this, and it looks very creative.

BUYZ B4 PEE ESS TRIPPLE COPIEZ.
