Device to add $20 over current 802.11g model
Microsoft has allegedly set a price of $100 to purchase the upcoming 802.11n adapter for the Xbox 360, an unnamed "Mole" told Ars Technica. The company recently acknowledged the device's existence, after it had been spotted in FCC documents. Dual antennae are expected to help the system stream 1080p content available through the Zune movie portal.
The source also claims the company is ready to release several hardware bundles. Customers will be able to get Xbox 360 Elite packages with Pure and Lego Batman beginning sometime in October. Microsoft recently announced other bundles that include Modern Warfare 2 and Halo 3: ODST.
A launch date for the 802.11n adapter has yet to be leaked. The current 802.11g model will reportedly see a price cut down to $80.
