    It will probably replace the old adapter at the same ~$80 price point... way overpriced IMO but at least its an easy upgrade for those interested in streaming HD content without wires.
     
  2. How nice would it be if this is part of a step towards an integrated wireless adapter. With this big shift towards downloading full HD games, and streaming HD media I think its a good sign. There already are rumors and pics of a 250gb hard drive bump up for the elite, then with this I can see them releasing an update console with Natal next year that is basically an elite with natal attached a 250gb+ HD and Integrated wireless. I just hope it happens.

    250G Elite at same price of elites now, would change my mind on saving for a gaming laptop, I have the money for a premium console now, just a little more for an elite :)!

    Any chance this one will support WPA2? I seriously just shoved the old one back in the packaging and took it back in one minute after realizing it only did WPA/WEP.

    @supersmashbrada your PS3 can stream Netflix using playon software.
