Hey people,

So yeah, I'm planning to purchase PS3 soon, maybe an Xbox 360 (I say maybe since I would have to pay a little extra for accessories and Xbox Live). I'm here to ask about the wireless capabilities of these consoles. Do you know if either of these are compatible with AirPort Express? I know that PS3 has built in wireless capabilities and the 360 needs an adapter, but I just want to know if it works with the AirPort Express. I haven't found a reliable answer yet but hopefully someone here will help me.

Anyways, if you would like, post your PSN IDs or XBL Gamertags, as I will need some people to play with online when I get a new console. I will post my screen name when I register for it. The first game I plan to purchase is Grand Theft Auto: IV, what a surprise huh? Now, I do ask people here to be unbiased and fair. No fanyboyism please. Remember to play nice online, as I will. Thanks!!!!

Yes, the airport express will work just fine. My xbox 360 is connected this way.

Thanks for the reply for the Xbox 360. I've been contemplating a lot about which console I should get but now I really want a 360. It has better games, online system, and I know more people who play on Live. So, yeah thanks but no thanks on the PS3 lol. I can't wait to see what the PS3 is FULLY capable of, but until then, it needs to have better games for me to change my mind. Well thanks again, happy computing, web surfing, and gaming.

I'm thinking about getting a PS3, mainly because it has a bluray drive, and its probably the future of disks. It has wifi and bluetooth built in as well which is fairly decent, no need to buy more adaptors. I may have to buy an airport express to extend my wireless network up to my room though as it can be a bit temperamental on wireless-g, which is what the ps3 uses I think, but wireless-n runs a blast in my room.
