New Xbox 360 Bluetooth headset and media remote coming this November

Microsoft pitchman Major Nelson has heralded the arrival of brand new Bluetooth Xbox 360 Wireless Headset and sleek new console media remote, both of which are scheduled to ship worldwide this November.

According to details posted on his blog and in unpacking video below, the headset will replace the current wireless model. It will be compatible with other Bluetooth devices as well as connect to Xbox 360 via magical radio frequencies, and retail for the equivalent $59.99.

The new Xbox 360 Media Remote will sport a sleeker design, as well the colorful buttons required to enjoy the consoles non-gaming entertainment offerings (i.e Live TV, Sky Player, NetFlix), as well as accommodate future Xbox Live features. It will retail for $19.99.

    I love that remote, we watch Sky Player a lot and the old remote is a bit clunky, day 1 purchase for me.

    @j.i.n hehe you forgot to lift the shift key. FAIL! anyways alphaAGENT114 is right, your $60 is better spent on x11. Personally x11 are one of my best investments for my xbox 360.

    well they both look nice, trouble is whenever I spent money on Microsoft hardware it never works, ive had red ring on my xbox twice and my wireless headset isnt powerful enough to get a signal through my hair...and im a guy so my hair isnt exactly long :S

    the xbox isnt a dvd player. and for the headset, for the price im paying i might as well get X11's atleast those wont break in 2 months.
