on November 16, 2009 3:08 PM

In response to Microsoft’s release of a faster, and more efficient Wireless-N internet adapter, third-party specialist Mad Catz, has announced the shipping of their own Wireless-N Gaming Adapter. The hook? Cheaper, of course. For $79.99 (compared to Microsoft’s price of $99.99) gamers can play their Xbox 360s without the umbilical cord known as an Ethernet cable, and the option to boost the stability of the PS3’s Wi-Fi. The Wireless-N Gaming Adapter also promises to work on any Ethernet-ready product.

“Connecting via the Ethernet (WAN) port on either console, the Wireless-N Gaming Adapter(compatible with 802.11b/g/n networks) proves ideal for online play and content downloading.  When using with a Wireless-N network, the Adapter offers a strong and stable connection to your Wireless-N broadband router/access point and delivers up to three times the range and speed (Up to 150Mbs) when compared to other ‘G’ gaming adapters running at speeds up to 54Mbs… The Wireless-N Gaming Adapter offers an effortless setup procedure thanks to the Quick Setup Button, which provides seamless gaming console integration when used in conjunction with a router or access point featuring WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup button).”

Also packed in with the adapter is a 3.3 feet Ethernet to allow users to get the best wireless reception in their households. That means we can all stop playing our games with the 360s balancing on our heads.
