The Chimera is a little on the expensive side.

Would a Logitech USB headset that plugs directly into your console work w/ this?

Guys this DOES have xbox live chat, it just doesn't work with the Xbox messenger chat pad as the shape of the controller is different and won't get the chat pad to fit.

It still has a 2.5mm jack, so stop whining!

It also won't work with the original Xbox 360 headset, which has a puck connector similar to the chat pad.

Doesn't it have the single 3.5mm jack for mics? Yes, can't use the old mics with the larger inputs, but surely for a 'pro' controller, Xbox LIVE chat is a must. If not, this controller is truly a failure.

The fact that it doesn't have xbox live chat is pretty...... strange. For an xbox live controller. Very, very dissapointing. I was hoping to use my favourite controller (this) for online gaming with my friends, but for social gaming, it seems I'll have to grab my stock controller. The colour is hardly an issue, and wired, a con? A real pro gamer will want a wire, due to latency. Although only serious progamers and MLG gamers will care about the incredibly added latency.

You can chat with it, you just can't use the Xbox Chat Pad. You know, that annoying little thing they tried to make everyone use, that you can't even use without bringing up your messages list?

That thing isn't compatable due to the design of the controller.

You also can't use one of the older "puck" connector headsets. This isn't a problem for me since I just got a Turtle Beach X11 headset, but if you still have an original headset you won't be able to use it.

Also, it's wired because Microsoft won't let 3rd parties make wireless controllers.

For people who are serious about gaming, wired connection is a must. Even the very best wireless mouses and controllers have certain ammount of lag, which isnt very comfortable to experience for experienced players, but is perfectly acceptable for casual players :-).

Buy the Chimaera Headset if it worries you that much...

Or it could just be wired because it makes for less latency?
