Microsoft Xbox One Chatpad

While the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller is in short supply, one of Microsoft's other official Xbox One accessories is now officially on sale. The previously announced Xbox Chatpad is now shipping from the Microsoft Store for $34.99.

Here's a breakdown of the Chatpad, which was first announced earlier this year at Gamescom

"Type to your buddies, enter codes, and find new apps in a snap with the Xbox Chatpad. It plugs into your Xbox One wireless controller, putting a backlit keypad and headset audio controls right at your fingertips. It also has two programmable keys for quick access to your apps. Includes chat/mono headset with 3.5mm jack. Compatible with Xbox One and Windows 10."

The Microsoft Store site does warn there are "limited quantities" of the Xbox Chatpad at the moment, so if you really want one before the holiday shopping season is over, you might want to get it now.

We'll have a full review of the Chatpad soon! In the meantime, check out our review of the competing Nyko Type Pad for Xbox One. Buy the Xbox One Chatpad from Microsoft Store / $34.99
