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.

Nice stuff...

I'm actually suprised it's take this long for the wireless headset to come out.

The steering wheel will be nice. Although paddle shifting takes some getting used to (at least it did for me in the real world - I have an smg trans) It's cool and all, and after practice you learn how to move your hands/arms efficiently but at first it's frustrating and awkward. Once you have it down though you can really haul ass and make your shifts almost without thinking.
That being said, I would like to see an actual 5/6 speed shifter available, that would be cool.

I was hoping to see a keyboard and mouse listed here as well. While I agree it will give an advantage in FPS, that's kind of why I want it. I would lose the comfort of kicking back in the couch playing, but it would be nice to do some serious gaming with a keyboard/mouse combo. BOOM HEADSHOT!!

Man it seems like every other day MS is announcing new stuff for the 360. I can't wait to see what's coming out 2 days from now. :)
