b) Realise they can't play online without it, so are forced into buying it

Don't class me as an Xbox hater, I'm not. I just think it's a bit of a sly tactic.
Its mainly B)

People say that its a bad deal, but what if someone buys a PS3 and never uses the built in wireless because they always use cables?

 

Whilst I admit that the adaptor is a little pricey, tbh I would much rather have the choice of something like wireless, so that the price of the console was lower.

 

The same goes for batteries. When the rechargable battery in the PS3 controller no longer holds power (They do wear out), then its a new controller.

With the xbox its just a new battery...

 

There are for and against both.... :smileyhappy:

Re: Why is the 360 WiFi adapter so expensive?

Wireless thing is a first party one.

If i remember right only MS have the rights to make and produce it. Therefore they can control the price :smileyhappy: 

And who makes it

 

That the reason why :smileytongue:

It also means users can now replace their old adapter with the new 'N' wireless adapter that should be much faster than the one built into the PS3. Modular is a much better design for some technologies.
