Send Text Messages Directly From Your Game Controller
Now for the first time, gamers can generate text messages directly from their game controller.
Gamers use the Texter with PlayStation 2 or Xbox 360 online environments for in-game messaging, text chatting, and Web browsing.
The Texter appears to be a USB keyboard to the console and game. Typing with the Texter is much faster than using onscreen keyboards, and eliminates the need for an external USB keyboard. Messaging becomes a part of the gaming experience.
The Texter for the PlayStation 2 is now available, and the Xbox 360 Texter will be available in early December 2006.
