FYI: recently I got a random 800RZ bump for no apparent reason but upon viewing my point history they retroactively added it for the "buy a year of Live get 800MSP" RZ offer. I have no idea why it showed up now (purchase was in the middle of November) but I got 800RZ and 800MSP out of the deal. Anyone who used that offer should check their past purchases.

The hub is cool because it is one of the only hubs I have found that works with Kinect.

I'm wondering about this as well, reading the description of the RZ offer though makes me think they won't work together...

"Using optimized technology, the black Xbox 360 Wireless Controller..."

Is there a black Xbox 360 controller that has the transforming dpad?

I looked it up on the site and did see it listed (the d pad is silver and kinda looks weird) BUT when I open it up on the site it shows me the regular silver looking controller so I guess you have to go there and try to get them to do it.

I can't speak for PC, but for PS3, yes, you need to have it plugged into both the PS3 AND wall outlet to charge most PS3 accessories. And the PS3 MUST be turned on too.

If it is just plugged into the wall and your PS3 is off, it will (strangely) charge only a few things (it charged my PS3 Bluetooth headset, for example), but it won't charge your controllers (DualShock, Move, or Nav). If your PS3 is on, though, everything will charge just fine.

For anyone expecting this to charge your PS3 accessories while the PS3 is turned off (like the PS3 AC Adaptor that Sony themselves made a few years ago), then I wouldn't recommend this.


Are you sure it wasn't charging the controller? The guy in the other thread said that it will charge your controller, but the charging light doesn't turn on..

Yeah, I agree. Though, the reward zone offer is supposed to be taken off automatically, so if it doesn't you may want to have a copy of the reward zone coupon handy since at that point it will take the CSR to do some kind of coupon override to get them to both show up. Or, the offer gets applied automatically and the Gamer coupon doesn't work, either way using both coupons might end up being YMMV.

So the HUB need to be plugged in at all times even if the PS3 if turned off?

That would make sense.. how could it charge your controller if it wasn't plugged in?

It's also connected to the PS3 via the USB cable so one can wonder.

I'd disagree. I'm quite pleased with the USB hub for $10 - its exactly what I needed.

I've been investigating a wall charger that can handle more than two controllers at once and doesn't require the system to be turned on. This one seems to fit the bill:

Cosmos wall charger - $9.99

Unlike other USB wall chargers, all ports can output 2A of power, making it theoretically strong enough to charge a controller. Mine arrives tomorrow, so I'll post impressions then if anyone is interested.

For those that have it, can this be used as a standard USB port on a PC without being plugged in?

I might grab it if it has flexibility to do something else I need.

had $10 in certs so i picked up the hub for free. don't ask how he got it to work and i didn't pay sales tax. i just know he said "Ryan doesn't pay for things when he comes here" to the girl ringing me out and handed me my receipt. not a penny was owed?!

Only way that would happen is if they manually overrode it to $10 (penny higher) then the cert took it down to $0.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Odd how the receipt shows $9.99. Does it have the RZ listed as -$10?

Also, no you wouldn't need to pay the tax. RZ acts as a coupon, not form of payment. If you use $30 rewards on a $60 game you only pay tax on the $30 left over, not the full $60.

So what happens if you ship to store and then return, will they put that copy of the game on the shelf? And then could you buy the game if it still falls within the coupon date?

Again, remember that if a product doesn't list an item as being in-stock, it just means they have 0-2 copies available and aren't necessarily out of stock.

I remember seeing a couple of copies at my local store the past few times I've been there and the store is listed with the "Ship to Store" option (i.e., not able to do Store Pickup).

Yep, same thing happened to me with Prototype 2 the other day, was showing up as ship to store only but when I went they had one copy left.
