Messenger Kit gets unboxed and exposed

Gather around fanboys, it's time for an electronics unboxing! The scissor wielding crew over at Gear Live got their hands on the new chatpad included Messenger Kit, which releases this Tuesday, and decided to chronicle the ritualistic unboxing process. Click through their unboxing pictures, be amazed at how all the contents were carefully stuffed inside the packaging and how pretty the chatpad's backlight glows. Yes sir, electronics unboxings rock especially when they feature Xbox 360 products.

Who the hell wants that big hunk of plastic in between their controller? Yet another stupid accessory I will never buy.

Wow, this isn't actually that bad of a deal after all. The headset cost's 20 bucks alone so it's like getting the pad for only $10.

Well usually headsets are around $20-30 by themselves so next time I break a headset I'll get this one...

I'm pretty sure it will work without the keypad. For example, some of the old xbox headsets work with 360.

I didn't realize people do excessive typing on their 360, considering you can send voice messages or get into a private chat.

The picture of the back is what I wanted to see, looks like my worries were unwarrented. It will not block my fingers anymore than the battery pack already does.

It's a handy litle gizmo but I'm not paying the money MS want for it.

It's just as quick to plug in the headset and send a voice message instead.
