The Xbox 360’s elusive 802.11n wireless adaptor has finally landed in Blighty.

Microsoft confirmed the adaptor’s existence back in September, yet didn’t say when the gadget would be launched locally.

However, a photo of the boxed device has just been snapped supposedly sitting on a shelf in a branch of supermarket chain Asda.

The existing official Xbox 360 wireless adaptor can connect to 802.11a/b/g WLANs. It has one antenna. The updated model works with the recently standardised faster 802.11n specification and sports a pair of aerials.

While the 802.11n adaptor has yet to appear on Amazon’s UK website, Asda has the gadget priced up at £49 ($82/€55) - which is what's also charging for the older version. ®
