Same price at The Hut, But £8.86 if you use the Walkers code.

Does this work on a PC.

Only cheap because the layout is wrong!

^ Good mention may be an issue for some people but will still be much quicker then having to type out without the keypad.

even if you don't ever use it for typing, the chatpad adds a nice weight to the controller and it feels much better. i have to take my chatpad with me when i go to a friend's to play

Forget what the picture shows this will be AZERTY - I ordered one from zavvi last time

Says in the description AZERTY

No it doesn't. Very annoying that they won't bring out drivers for it.

Yes I can confirm my one from Zavvi was AZERTY as well, although doesn't make too much of a difference and I agree about it bringing some bulk to the pad.

where can i get a qwerty one from? cheers

I did the same, the pad is way too heavy as it is, I suspect a lot of people will end up with RSI cos of that!

That's the French keyboard. I wouldn't spend money for it. It's a good deal but very unpractical item. It's not even "european" as they say because most countries in Europe use the QWERTY keyboard, only French speaking countries use that.

Germany (and possibly others?) use QWERTZ. You're right though, AZERTY isn't Europe-wide.

If it was black I probably would. Wring layout and wring colour means it's just plain wrong for me.

Yeah cause the girls will defo not think your cool if you chatpad doesnt match you controller...good thinking

Can someone confirm, do these send the wrong keys or are they just labelled azerty and Xbox options sets the input value.
I.E. on azerty if I press a on UK setting does it send q? if so I could put up with it.

If you press the "A" key you get a "A" etc.....

You do get used to the AZERTY layout after a couple of days - just for everyone implying it's useless for not being QWERTY. It is only a few keys different.

I have a PS3 and 360 and much prefer the weight and size of the 360 controller. I end up with claw hands after using the PS3 controllers! :P
Seams like a good deal, how does the headset compare to the one supplied with the 360? the one provided with my 360 slim is really plasticky and crackles
