MS confirms new 360 wireless dongle

"Another choice". More details "soon".

Microsoft has confirmed the existence of a new and improved Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter.

This has two antennae and the latest 802.11n technology, which you'll need if you plan to stream 1080p videos when the Zune video service launches later this year.

MS told Joystiq that the new adapter represents "another choice" for consumers. That suggests the Ł50 single-pronged dongle will live on.

More importantly, MS made no mention of price nor date, but said more information will be released "soon".

We spotted the double-antennae adapter in an FCC filing earlier this month. The same device was later seen on marketing material inside the Italian Gears of War 2 box.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
