Locked: WHO ELSE IS TIRED OF MICROSOFT CHARGING 100$ FOR A WIRLESS ADAPTER

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - WHO ELSE IS TIRED OF MICROSOFT CHARGING 100$ FOR A WIRLESS ADAPTER

I'm upset that Nintendo makes the Wii wireless instead of wired. I bought a wired adaptor for $10 because wireless has no business anywhere near gaming except the controllers.

WHO ELSE IS TIRED OF PEOPLE WHO CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE WIRELESS BRIDGES ON THE XBOX 360?

It's still ridiculous that it's not built in.  There is no way around it.

 

Its also rediculous that the PS3 doesn't come with HD cables!

 

that's such a weak defence considering that hd cables are not proprietary and don't cost an arm and a leg. the wireless adaptor doesn't need to be so expensive.

 

Yes it does. Its the same reason why the proprietary PS3 component cables are expensive.

 



Tease.

if the price bothers you then you can use this:

 

$49.99 from amazon and the buyers there tell you how to get it to work with the 360

Yea that needs to go down and the expense of their HDDs which are just outrageous.

Isn't that an original XBOX peripheral?  Looks familiar, that's why I am asking...

Not really. $100 for a 60GB HDD from retail is pretty reasonable if you consider how easy it is to install them.

 

 



Tease.

Your kidding me right.  Like are those really that much different from ones on the PC because ones that fit on PC are like $70 for 500 gbs.  My brother just bought one recently actually.

Laptop drive remember!

So its reasonable that Nintendo sells $100 worth of Hardware for $250 retail?

Its also reasonable that computer companies charge you more for a system than you can build yourself?

But its unreasonable that Microsoft gives people an easy way to upgrade their HDD without tools (Who has a precision screw-driver set really!) In an external casing.

 



Tease.

Well someone is in a defensive mood. I'm sure many companies overprice for thing including Nintendo with the Wii. Though that it ticked you off there you must recognize how vastly overpriced the 360 HDDs. Well that's all I needed to hear.

So yea MS bring the price down of those Harddrives because they are too damn expensive. I mean at least $50 for the 60 GB Harddrive so at least your cheaper than the 500 GB ones.
