The Xbox One, when initially released, was conceived as something of a media machine, at the expense of its gaming capabilities. Since that point, numerous concessions have been made by Microsoft towards the hardcore gaming crowd, and today at Gamescom 2015, it sweetened the deal even further.
The Chatpad is a small keyboard that allows for quicker and more accurate typing when using message boards, among other things, that plugs directly into the Xbox One controller. Audio controls are also in-built, as is a stereo headphone jack, and two programmable keys.
Available in November, the pad will work with all Xbox One controllers, and will help to further solidify the media and communications experience on the console.
