Looks like a nice cheap resolution to having no keyboard for xbox/gentoox

The question is would this device work properly if hooked to usb/xbox? :?:

As it's a only got a ps/2 type interface, the only way to get it working on the xbox would be to get a ps/2 to usb interface.

By the time you've added on the cost of the interface it would probably be cheaper to buy a proper usb keyboard.

oh i didn't notice that well my mistake

I dont guess the chord could be spliced to a usb chord could it.


I know i seen a kb/ps2 hub once but i dunno how much was inside to make it work or the cost

No, Sorry. Different protocol.
