Sticking to their plan they announced in July, the Chat Pad accessory for the Xbox 360 game controller is set to start shipping next Tuesday, September 4. The Chat Pad will come packaged as part of a Messenger Kit that will come bundled with a headset for $29.99 from Microsoft. Be sure to remember when ordering that this kit doesn’t include the controller, just the Chat Pad and the headset.
In addition, those Halo 3 gaming accessories designed by Todd McFarlane for the Xbox 360 that we told you about way back in June are set to release as well, along with the headset. Each of the two wireless controllers, the Spartan and the Covenant, both come with a Master Chief figurine and go for $60. The wireless headset by itself sells for and additional $60.
