Ok, sorry if this is kinda out of scope for an SRK tech talk QA thread…
New to 360 and coming from a PS3 this switching controllers thing is really something. All I’d like to do is use my arcade stick to play fighters, then when needed use my stock controller to type messages, IM’s, etc (with or even without the chatpad) within the xbox menu.
On the ps3, the chatpad is basically a BT keyboard peripheral to the whole system, whereas for the xbox if I start a game with a controller, like you cant even turn the dam thing off without exiting the game. Now I understand why I see console resets every so often at offline sessions.
Is there a way to do this without exiting the game, switch gamer profile to a different controller?
