New Xbox 360 Wireless N Adapter Priced and Dated
Microsoft confirmed rumors of a new, faster network adapter late last month, but was still sketchy on details. Now, however, a new GameStop listing appears to have given away the price and release date.
Listed for $99, the Wireless N Network Adapter is scheduled for a November 3 release. If true, it would also confirm the current wireless adapter will be seeing a price drop of some kind.
We pinged Microsoft for comment on the accuracy of this listing. Well keep you updated. Check the details below to see if this new adapter tickles your fancy:
