Xbox 360 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth and a new Media Remote

 

 

Today we announced the all new Xbox 360 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth. The device is compatible with Bluetooth devices such as mobile phones and PCs in addition to being able to connect to Xbox 360 through the console’s standard radio frequencies. The Xbox 360 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth will be available for $59.99 (U.S. ERP) and will be available in stores worldwide beginning early November 2011.

 

Here is a quick video I made showing the new headset

In addition, the Xbox 360 Media Remote was also announced. Media playback controls include play/pause, skip forward, fast forward, skip back, fast back, and display to control DVD, CD, or streamed media. The TV controls include power on/off, volume up/down, mute and TV input. The Xbox 360 Media Remote’s menu navigation controls include A, B, X, Y buttons, D-pad navigation, back and select. Live TV, if provided on the Xbox 360 by your TV service provider, can also be controlled with the Xbox 360 Media Remote. This Xbox 360 Media Remote will be available worldwide for $19.99 (U.S. ERP) and will be in stores in early November 2011.

    Why is the media center button not on this remote???

      Really no point to it. I have my computer, xbox, and tv all next to each other. With all of the xbox services, there is nothing media center provides that the xbox doesn’t. I can watch all videos and music from the xbox itself without media center. Media center does have a nice big UI suited for TV playback from the couch, but it’s really not used much if at all.

        Since you don’t need it I guess it’s a good thing they removed it for everyone.

        It makes me worry that Media Center button being removed is a sign that Media center might be removed in the next update.  I have my media center server upstairs in my closet and stream to 4 360s in my house. Its my main TV set up and all of our DVDs have been ripped to it also.  I hope they arent planning to pull support for Media Center, its been kind of forgotten by the Windows team lately too.
