Xbox Wireless N Adapter Out Now, Costs $100

Joystiq reports that Microsoft is launching the Wireless N Adapter for the Xbox 360 this week in the United States. Nice news and all, but the price leaves something to be desired.

Earlier this week, Microsoft's Wireless N Adapter was spotted in an ASDA supermarket in the UK. Priced at £49, you guys balked at the direct conversion of roughly $85 for the peripheral. Well, it get's worse.

If you want one you'll be forking out the same $99.99 you would have paid for the first one. Wise shoppers will go to Amazon as Joystiq reports the etailer is selling it for $87.99 right now.

    $85 will get you enough ethernet cable to go all around your house a few times before hitting up your router. Plus ethernet doesn't go down when some one calls your cordless land line.

    Fanboy or no fanboy - case in hand - $100 bucks for WiFi functionality is just too much.

    Why does every 360 article have comments about the PS3 and vice versa?

    Who gives a crap what system you think is better. I certainly don't.

    I'd like to punch a fanboy in the teeth right now.

    Ohh, and this is an enormous rip off. It should be $35 for the N and $20 for the G.

    There should be a "fanboy" detector in this site.. and about the adapter.. well too expensive, a good router with WDS+AP cost the same, and do a lot more than that x-box adapter..
