Gamescom 2015: Chat pad coming to Xbox One this holiday

By on


Announced at today’s Xbox Gamescom conference, a new chat pad peripheral for Xbox One controllers will be coming November 3rd (US)

Similar to the Xbox 360 version, the chat pad becomes useful for messaging or web browsing, with a full QWERTY keyboard, backlit keys, and audio jack. But in this iteration, it includes audio controls similar to the Stereo Headset Adapter, two programmable buttons, and comes with a chat headset.

The chat pad is compatible with all Xbox One controllers for the Xbox One and Windows 10, and is now available for pre-order.
