Last week there were reports the Federal
Communications Commission had reviewed an "Xbox 360 Wireless
N Networking Adapter" that adheres to the 802.11n Wi-Fi protocol
that was finally standardized. Several days later, advertisements
for the new adapter were spotted on a flier inside the Italian
version of the Gears of War 2 Game of the Year Edition.
The advertisement shows both the older model A/B/G wireless
adapter and the new model. In Microsoft's response to Joystiq,
they referred to the new wireless adapter as, "another choice to
consumers," which seems to indicate the current A/B/G adapter
would not be immediately replaced with the new model.
It appears that Microsoft does not have anything to say about
built-in wireless capabilities for the Xbox 360. Microsoft stated
only that more details about the new adapter would be available soon
and to stay tuned.
