Hi Seriousface2, i'm not sure if I understood you correctly.
Do you mean that Microsoft might separate XIM3 and gamepad players from each other in multiplayer, with a technical barrier?
Nom nom nom, mmmhh sandvich.

You do know that Microsoft can update their TOS at any given time right.

Yes and whether that turns out to be legal is another argument...changing T&C would involve compensation for goods purchased.

Naw man that is not what I meant by it... you see, I have heard A LOT of people mention that one of the reasons that they play XBOX is that the community in XBOX is better and more social and everything. So, if people start to figure out what these "XIM3-THINGS" are then the community will split up to those whom use XIM3s and those of who are controller users only. Since "Some Random lady from M$ has given the  *Unofficial* ok  hehe and seeing as she knows the TOS like the back of her hand" Then its all legit, and they can't stop us, but what makes the community great is because no one knows we are using KB/M. So, my question to everyone else is... when you go into a room do you say that you are using a KB/M or do you just play the game and say nothing about it? I know when I jump in the game I will right from the gate let people know that I am not playing the same way they are. All my XBL friends use the controller and im the only one out of them that can use the KB/M ( @#$% @#$% XFPS 4.0) <--I HATE YOU!!!  >:(. Anyways, if this thing goes mainstream ... the community will spilt into two groups, which has been said in other forums as well.

Maybe razer is going to be the company to scoop xim up, i mean its inevitably going to happen  (unless obsiv is one of those strange breed of people that actually enjoy 9-5)

Hopefully we can buy one before the TOS is updated.

Thanks for clarifying. I hope the community will not be split. We will see.

Thanks, as 'some' seem to be questioning your honesty, I have also shot a mail off. ;)

My past transgressions.  I was promoting Razer products here on XIM forums and got a little heat for it, understandably.

Anyhow, I'm toning down the promoting.  It's tough though, when you're doing it all day, to just switch it off completely.  So, I vowed to leave and never return, but when I checked with MS about using XIM on the XBox the response was so positive I had to share.

In a way I hope to have redeemed myself.

Now, we don't mind you being a sort of messenger to Razer -- Honestly I'd think it would be awesome if there were some kind of XIM3 tie in, maybe just increased compatibility with the device (Or something), but it's not that you necessarily had to "redeem yourself".

I don't mind the Razer posts so much. I don't think the Razer Onza is a competitor for the XIM3 for FPS games, but I'm probably still going to buy one. There's games I don't really want to play with a mouse and keyboard (GTA and RDR come to mind) but wouldn't mind extra control and accuracy anyway. The Onza solves that need, I think. It also looks like the d-pad doesn't blow chunks.

So I wouldn't say no one here wants to hear about the Onza, I think you just need to tone it down with the "you don't need a mouse and keyboard when you have the Onza" rhetoric, because that's simply not the case. But I do think the products can co-exist. I'll probably even use the Onza for killstreak perks with my XIM3 rather than switching profiles. Even with decent sensitivity, the RC Car in Black Ops feels goofy with a mouse.

Meh, one Microsoft Support Employee's opinions does not an official policy make.  (whoops, Yoda grammar?)

Inevitably it's up to the developers, so just let the XIM3 be it's own success.   
XIM4 + Run and Gun = Fun.
