XBOX 360 Wireless Headset - $59.99

XBOX 360 Wireless Racing Wheel - $149.99

XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver - $19.99
Still no word on the XBOX 360 HD DVD drive

Although many were expecting for Microsoft to announce pricing on its highly anticipated external HD DVD drive for the XBOX 360 at the 2007 Games Convention in Leipzig, it was not to be. As a consolation prize, however, Microsoft has announced pricing and package details for a number of other peripherals for the XBOX 360 gaming platforms -- many of which were first announced at E3.

First up is Microsoft’s $19.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows. This unit plugs into a USB 2.0 port on your PC and allows you to use your XBOX 360's wireless peripherals in Windows-based games. It will be available in late December.

Next is the XBOX Live Vision camera which will be available in two separate packages. The first package, which will be available for $39.99, will include the Live Vision camera, one month of XBOX Live Gold and full versions of UNO and TotemBall. The $79.99 XBOX Live Video Chat Gold Kit will include a Live Vision camera, one year of XBOX Live Gold, 200 Microsoft Points, an XBOX 360 headset, and full versions of UNO, TotemBall and Robotron. That is quite a deal considering that one year of XBOX Live Gold is $50 by itself.

Also on tap is the $149.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Racing Wheel which comes with a limited edition force feedback version of Project Gotham Racing 3 and the $59.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Headset. Both will be available in November.

Maybe there's no point to it, but I'd love to see keyboard and mouse released for consoles as extras. I find it difficult to play FPS on consoles (compared to PC gaming) with a gamepad. On the other hand, sport games on consoles using gamepad are perfect.

Well, I think it does give a little unfair advantage and I don't want to have to buy one to compete. I like consoles because I don't have to sit at a desk, I can sit back on the couch with 3 other people playing if I like. Doing that with a keyboard+mouse would be a pain and ultra nerdy.

Just plug in a USB keyboard and mouse. It probably doesn't work in games, but I have used it for putting in those 20 digit codes for redeeming points and such.

So, I see the head set, but nothing explaining what it comes with. I see the explanation on pricing and content for the Camera, but no picture. Is that all there is or did we miss something?
