You can, but I don't know how many devices you could daisy chain before they would stop working.

Best way is to try it and see. Rock Band has its little hub which allows all those devices to connect to it, which is 4 devices if you use 2 wired guitars. The real Q is, what are you trying to acheive?

I have my 360 in an XB01 case now, and the USB ports are a little difficult to reach, so I want to extend one of them out of the case, and be able to plug in 2 controllers and a cam.

Try it and let us know. It would be interesting to learn if this works or not

I have one on my x360.. but theres only so much power you can exceed before nothing works..

For example:

three play and charge kits in controllers charging = OK
Wireless headset charging + two play and charge kits in controllers charging = OK
Wireless headset charging + three play and charge kits in controllers charging = Power Exceeded
four play and charge kits in controllers charging = Power Exceeded..

So there is only so much you can use on them before the Power for the USB ports exceeds its limit.. same goes for any device with USB ports.

Yea, try it and see. By the sounds of it, 2 controllers and a cam sounds reasonable.

You can use card readers and FireWire hubs as well, as long as it's USB compatible.
