From a Google of xbox 360 usb keyboard I found the followiing link:

I don't have an XBox but it looks like any standard USB keyboard will work, as long as the "virtual keyboard" is displayed on the sceen waiting for your input. SAince the Deck is a standard USB you hsould be good to go.

One of the nice things about the Deck is that at 12 inces wide it wont get in the way while gaming but still is a full sized keyboard.

My 82-key Deck works fine in the dashboard, but I don't know about that game. Haven't tried the Legend since it's configured for PS/2.

I would be worried about the current supply for the deck using it with an Xbox as I don't know the current the USB cables can carry. When I measured my Legend and it is using ~468mA of the 500mA allowed on a USB port.

Side note: The Legend is convertible from PS/2 to USB by reversing the cable after you open the keyboard, atleast mine is...

Hey Gutte,
Yes, the Legend has both the PS/2 and USB capabilities by switching the connection inside BUT, dont forget, there is a diode change, too. ......Deck Girl Amy
