Instant Messaging Comes to Xbox 360

Listen up all you gamers - the Xbox LIVE friends list is about to get a whole lot bigger. Microsoft Corp. has announced the launch of Windows Live Messenger on Xbox 360, connecting friends across Xbox 360 consoles, Microsoft Windows-based PCs and Windows Mobile-powered devices. Users will be able to connect and chat directly from their television using Windows Live Messenger, a network of more than 20 billion relationships and more than 260 million active accounts.

Here's more:

Beginning the week of May 7, 2007, the Xbox 360 Spring Update will provide Xbox 360 owners worldwide with access to Windows Live Messenger features, broadening the communication options on the Xbox LIVE social network. Members of the 6 million-strong Xbox LIVE community currently send more than 2 million text and voice messages a day and can now use Windows Live Messenger to text chat with up to six people on their contact list at one time, while playing games, listening to music or watching movies. Text chat adds to the variety of options friends and families already have to communicate with on Xbox LIVE, including voice and video chat.

Either those letters are going to be really small to accomodate players' hands or as said above, that controller will be uncomfortable.

That controller looks very awkward. I'm glad hubby probably won't want this one. He usually does the voice chats with his friends.
