Aeropause has an article up that discusses a way to hook up your 360 via wireless without the 360 wireless adapter and for about $25.00.
Microsoft will need to drop the price of their wireless setup. I'm getting one of these!
A free xbox360 wireless internet connection has been out for months now. It's called a PS3.
The PS3 together with your personal computer is a custom built xbox360 but with free internet connection thanks to Sony. You'll never have to pay for internet gaming ever again.
All important xbox360 games will be multiplatorm / ported to the PS3 or will end up on the PC like Gears, Bioshock, or Halo.
But this custom built xbox360 called the PS3 will never interfere with your entertainment enjoyment by breaking down, charging you for internet gaming, or cranking out loud fan noises. Plus, you don't have to belong to the xbot crowd that's pretty embarassing.
In addition, it'll allow you to watch any bluray movies you like, such as Spiderman 3. Plus, it'll allow you to play PS3, PS2, PS1, and PSN games.
XBOTS, is your console inexpensive? Read above.
Ugh.. You are not even kind of funny.. Working really hard to get yourself to 1 bubble are we?
To show that the xbots can't do math well, let's see if any of them can figure out why 3x5 and 5x3 are the same. Go ahead, xbots. Explain why 3X5 and 5x3 are the same. Explain why 4x2 and 2x4 are the same, and so on.
good work around but ebay isnt 100%
Just to add you can also use your laptop to share you internet with your 360... All you have to do is share the connection and hook up your 360 and laptop together..
On another note this is one thing that really pisses me off about M$... I mean charging $99 for a wireless adapter and a 20 GB hard drive! C'mon now! I'm pretty suprise how the newer SKU for 360s don't have wifi built in...
I would watch out with those cretons at MS, they may just turn around and break out the ban stick for those who dare deviate from the fuhrers errr I mean Bill's plan for the xbox brand. Frankly Im surprised they even have a rechargeable battery pack and don't just force their poor saps to buy MS brand batteries for $6.99 each....LMAO
If MS wants to return favor to its fans they would reduce price of all accessories. I know they make good profit on these items to offset loss on the console but pleeze charging $210 USD for 120GB hard drive? Comeon you've already dropped console price why not drop price for accessories as well.
Yeah, I really dislike how Microsoft made their wireless proprietary. I guess they need to make money wherever they can, but I still think it's a sleazy business practice.
And can be found for as little as 20 bucks. Two cubes... pluge one into your wireless router, place the other cube where your 360 or other electronic device is and plug a standard ethernet cable into the device. The play link takes care of security and such without any intervention. Truly plug and play... It's what I put on my 360 and it works like a charm. I refuse to pay 100 for a wireless adapter. Ripoff...
There are a lot of different CHEAP wireless solutions for the 360. Nobody is being forced to use MS's overpriced adapter.
Wireless is lame for gaming anyway.. Everyone I play with has a dedicated wired connection and will kick you if they find out you have a wireless hookup. It's funny that whenenver there is someone lagging a game down and you ask them if they are on wireless %99 of the time they are.. n00bs!
I got a crapy linsky g router and never see any lag issues on the ps3. Never tried wireless on the 360 but I did recommend it to my dad... bad move? Gonna call him and tell him to go for the afore mentioned logitech play link anyways.
