Xbox 360: Update on Chatpad Fixing

Clumsyorchid gave an update today about what's going on with integrating the chatpad with PSU. To quote:

I would hold off on buying a messenger kit anytime soon. I got word back
from the development team that adding support will require significant work to
the code to integrate it into the game. I had hoped that the addition would be a
quicker fix, but this is not the case.

We still feel that the messenger kit is a great peripheral and are working
on ways of adding support, however it will be several months out before this can
be addressed in full. I want to be clear and point out that this was a
peripheral that was added to the Xbox family by Microsoft and as far as I know,
we were not approached to support this device. Hopefully this has a happy ending
and we can all rejoice with some lobby chat sometime in the future.
It looks like we'll have to wait awhile longer. But at least we can be sure they are working on it. Until then we'll have to stick with USB keyboards. In other news, the Wii now has full USB keyboard support for things like the Opera browser. So if you have a Wii, buying one might not be all that bad.
