MSN on Xbox 360? Perfect!
This ergonomically-designed device fits perfectly and neatly into the bottom of the controller, and has been designed perfectly so that it does not hinder gameplay whilst connected.
MSN can be accessed as usual via the dashboard, or if you have conversations ongoing, you can press the little MSN symbol on the chatpad, and a very little translucent screen pops up during gameplay, so you can type and receive the lastest replies.
Fantastic feature for switching between conversations, and very intuitive, it is a very useful tool.
Unfortunately, it does take some getting used to, and sometimes the keys are unresponsive or need hard pressing to ensure that the character appears on-screen.
Also unfortunate, this means that sometimes I give up and resort to signing in on my Mac and continuing gameplay.
This does not affect the overall review, however - it is a fantastically designed piece of equipment and is a definite recommendation for anyone who is online on MSN on their 360, for multitasking, it is a must!
