XBOX 360 doubt

Hi,

I'm planning on buying a 360. The latest ones come with the Winchester board I think. Can anyone tell me if it can be modded to run backups?

Sorry, I didn't mean piracy.

I think I'll be buying a PS3 instead, from the US. The 500GB one 220$.

1. Can the games I purchase from here be used on the US console?
2. Failure rate of the super slim models?
3. Anything else I need to know before buying the console?
4. Shall I buy the 12 or 500 GB model?
5. Also, is there anywhere in the US from where I can buy the slim model instead of the super slim?

1: Games from all regions work on PS3 and ps4
2: Close to zero and you get discount on new console if you give old one back
3: Buy a HDMI cable as ps3 does not come with one
4: 12 GB version is cheaper and can be upgraded later with a notebook sized 2.5" HDD
5: You may have to look for used consoles as slim is no linger manufactured. There is no warranty for used consoles.

Share some rep if my post helped you.

Thanks gollum for the clarification.

I've ordered for the PS3 super slim. Any place from where I can get the games for cheap?

Thanks.

Since I'm getting this from the US would customs be a problem? Should the console be removed from its box package?

better pack it in giftwrap
gifts do not count in customs
if someone asks, say its a video game = toy

If you are getting it by yourself so do one thing put the console in your travelling bags and if asked say yeah it belongs to me and I am using it. I got mine in the same way.

I just received the PS3, model 4301C.

I don't think this model can handle 220V AC input, because both the console and manual say 110V.

Can I use this product for stepping-down the voltage? Or is a transformer needed?

Can someone please clarify? Do I need a voltage converter at all? I've googled but haven't found any definite answers.

If I do need one, which one?

ask [MENTION=85950]Gollum[/MENTION] for this.
But since it is a non indian product you got to use a product like that for the normal usage scenario.

One last doubt, output says 250W. The PS3 requires around 75 to 190W. Will the power output from the converter be fixed at 250W or is it's output dependent on how much the PS3 draws?

This one is just Rs. 350 but gives out power upto 1600W

WTH, which one should I buy?

Use any with a stabiliser. A high power option is no problem is used with stabiliser. I do suggest you to get 1600w since it is maxing out at 1600 which is more in comparison to the other option but a 250w will also be fine since durning the high intensity games the console max requirement will only be 190w. So get any but use a stabiliser and you will be fine.

Connected it directly to the point without any converter. Works perfectly.

The latest 43xx series also accepts 100-240V!
