Xbox 360 wireless N adapter to cost half an arm?

If you though Microsoft’s gouging on Xbox 360 hard drives was bad, the latest rumor from rumor land has the Xbox 360’s upcoming Wireless N adapter pegged at $100. $100! Can anyone say highway robbery. I understand it’s a “new” product. But when you can get a normal wireless N adapter for ~$30, $100 seems like theft. Of course, if you really want N speeds you don’t have any choice. Again, this hasn’t been confirmed by Microsoft…yet. Instead an Ars Technica “mole” claims that this $100 asking price is in fact legit. I guess the reason for the high price is the second antennae for better reception huh? Upon launch, the Wireless G adapter will drop to $80 which in it’s own right is mighty expensive for “G”. Anyone else feeling a bit ripped off? Ok, for a $100 maybe 1/8 an actual human arm is a bit more realistic. Still, the complaint stands.
