Microsoft has just announced the availability and price for its upcoming Chatpad accessory. At $29.99, the two-piece Xbox 360 Messenger Kit will include the Chatpad and a headset, with a September 4th launch. For those who missed the video, check it out after the jump.

The two-piece bundle will run users a modest $29.99, which isn’t appalling, but it is a tad unfair that a standalone unit (apparently) won’t be offered at a lower price point for those who wish to sidestep the headset
