Xbox console has usb connectors for keyboard or mouse. No reason the
client controls can't be modified and adapted to the standard XBox
controller, which I would favor personally since it would gain traction,
and Xbox users wouldn't reject. Xbox I would guess could probably run the
latest windows client.

  in the on-line help)
