    Don't get me wrong. I love my PS3. But I got a bunch of christmas money and thought I might get another game system for the downstairs TV. Since some guys at work have a 360, thought I might get one. But was really surprised how expensive it is.

    there are other options other than the $99 adapter
    most wireless extenders will work
    i'm using the older xbox wireless-g adapter and it works fine

    I wish there was a package with different games, like Halo 3. I guess the good thing is if I can find a good deal on the 360, I can get some cheap used older games that I haven't played yet.

    Yeah, the Xbox is pretty damn expensive to get going. Luckily for me, I pretty much got lucky in an Ebay auction and picked up my 360 for $250 with shipping.

    There is a rumor that MS might announce a new SKU at this year's CES (next week or so), which apparently may include WiFi. So if you're not in a hurry, you could hold out for a little while to see if this turns out to be true.

    Of course it is a new toy, so not sure how patient I can be. Probably will be $100 more anyway....

    Yep, Microsoft will be releasing a......PS3.

    Bravo Microsoft, much thinking went into something already done. You bag what the PS3 put on their machine and now you copy it.

    X-Box fans are not happy with this rumour either.

    I think this would be an awesome machine, but I bet is is close to $550.
