got the package.. sounds like a good deal.. the chatpad does not work.. dont know why.. also odd the headset plug does not fit into the chatpad but fits directly into my xbox 360 controller... sent me an rma and shipping label..hopefully they send me one that works..without any hassle

The first chat pad I received did not function properly. I contacted XBL support and they could not troubleshoot the issue. They offered to exchange the item on MY dime. took it right back and provided a prompt exchange with no return shipping. IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE CHAT PAD: When you initially install the pad into your controller and find that it doesn't work, chances are you haven't pushed it in far enough. When you install it you will hear a "click". THEN push on the pad again to hear a SECOND click. This second click correctly seats the contacts to your controller. You really have to push hard in order to get that second click. Hope this saves some time and effort thinking that the item is defective when the only thing defective is XBL support.

COOL Starter

on 7/20/2011

Makes setting up your xbox a little easier. The keypad is very nice if you are planning on messaging your friends. They headset is your typical cheap headset, nothing to write home about, but no complaints on it either. Would highly recommend this package if you are looking for a year subscription and plan on using your messaging.

Great affordable bundle for online gaming!

by Anthony on 9/21/2011

If you do a lot of online gaming this is an awesome bundle to get. You get 12 months of xbox live gold, the chat pad, 400 points to use on the store, and a wired headset for voice chat. If you don't already have one or more of those things definitely consider getting this! The chat pad for instance fits perfectly on the controller to allow you to type messages quickly. It would have been nice if you got a little more than only 400 points but I'm happy with the purchase and it's still a great deal instead of buying everything separate.
