If MS has announced a "universal" controller or whatever that will work on the 360 and on Windows, it will be std USB connection then.

Well, you can already get xbox -> USB adaptors (eg from Lik Sang), and use the current controllers on the PC. So..... maybe you could just use one of those and plug the current xbox controllers into one of the USB ports on the 360?

It would depend on how the USB functions are used etc etc.... but it's an idea, if MS don't make their own ones... (And if they did, and it worked, it'd be cheaper probably also wink.gif

That would also make it possible to use the smartJOY frag on the xbox360 ...

But what about the breakaway cable on the wired controllers.... maybe that is the same cable smile.gif ...

with kind regards

Remember... you'll be missing out on the amazing UI 'X' button in the middle!

Anyone else see problems with g/f / family / friends 'just checking the score' by hitting that button at a critical moment. Also, what if someone 'sits on' the remote and switches my 360 off?

Useful but dangerous...

Is there gonna be an ipod style 'hold'?

I think MS will release their own Xbox1 pad > 360 connectors. Lik Sang wont be happy smile.gif

I heard Apple tried to patent the colour white, god wasnt amused.

Didn't you hear that Apple successfully sued God?

Ok, I realise that the iPod comment was a bit lame but surely it's a valid enough point.

I'm forever changing channel or turning things off by accidently knocking/sitting on/dropping the remote for the TV. If my PC was controlled by remote it would be a knightmare.

Same with this 360 control.

You need to bemore carefull smile.gif Ive got a remote for my computer i never use it though, no point. Juggling any more than 4 controllers is a pain. Hopefully the 360 remote can remove some of them from teh equation.

whats a knightmare?

Btw, my mps player, made a year before the ipod, has a hold on power button. In fact, the ps2 has a hold-reset button. In fact, my 1993 pc has a hold-reset button too!

Oh, yes, but ipods are important! how could I forget!

If you have remote problems you need to get into JP1 remote modding... it's lots of fun tongue.gif

Yes there is infact remote modding I picked up this kick ass remote from MCM for $10 with it's own LCD screen and modded it to work with all my stuff... now I just have one big kick ass remote that works with everything beerchug.gif

hopefully the 360 remote will offer a JP1 interface on the PCB so we can reprogram that to our liking as well biggrin.gif

EDIT: and yeah my circa 1986 brick cell phone had a hold button so tongue.gif

im pretty sure when u press the guide button when the console is off, it will turn on, but when the console is on, you press the guide button, then "X" to shut down the 360...it was in a screenshot of the 360 guide somewhere... so no accidentally shutting off the 360 unless you sat on the guide button, then somehow sat on the X button next before you hit the b button or something...

I just use the controller that came with my stereo reciever (Yamaha) for everything... even the xbox. Best controller ever. No fancy touch screen controllers that cost 200 bucks and work worth a shit. But it does have a screen that displays what item you have selected. Use it for the stereo, tv, xbox, and cable box. It can be programmed to control up to 12 things. I love the thing... but I can't say it needs a hold button (which is on every portable music player I have ever seen btw)

Thanks I made it myself, and NOT using 'ADOBE'.
Lol, I'm not a big fan of adobe. I use other stuff.
