DailyTech reports Microsoft has released a couple of new accessories for the Xbox 360 console:
First up is Microsoft’s $19.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows. This unit plugs into a USB 2.0 port on your PC and allows you to use your XBOX 360's wireless peripherals in Windows-based games. It will be available in late December.

Next is the XBOX Live Vision camera which will be available in two separate packages. The first package, which will be available for $39.99, will include the Live Vision camera, one month of XBOX Live Gold and full versions of UNO and TotemBall. The $79.99 XBOX Live Video Chat Gold Kit will include a Live Vision camera, one year of XBOX Live Gold, 200 Microsoft Points, an XBOX 360 headset, and full versions of UNO, TotemBall and Robotron. That is quite a deal considering that one year of XBOX Live Gold is $50 by itself.

Also on tap is the $149.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Racing Wheel which comes with a limited edition force feedback version of Project Gotham Racing 3 and the $59.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Headset. Both will be available in November.
