    Default suggestions on buying a 360

    hey guys i need some advice. someone is going to get me a 360 from England, and i have some questions about it:


    which model should i buy, and what are the latest prices?


    and what are the differences between the different models?


    will the foreign model work in bd or do i have to buy separate power adapter cables? if so, from where?


    i might also get kinect. can you guys tell me from where can i have my console flashed (so that i can play pirated games with the ap2.5 thingy), and how much it will cost?


    are there any complicacies with PAL and NTSC?


    how much do pirated 360 games cost, and where can i get the latest games?


    where can i get HDMI cable, and whats the price? where can i get other xbox accessories such as play & charge kit or wireless controllers?



    how many savegames can be stored and games can be installed on the 4gb console?



    can i use my portable hard drive as a storage device for installing games and storing movies on the console? if so, how?


    do i have to get a ups? will power outages damange the console?


    btw i wont be playing online

    Like @fahim_sinister said look at the other two threads...but you might not find some answers over there, so here they are
    1.yes there are some problem with PAL and NTSC, but not much 90% game in BD are region free , your one is gonna be PAL since your one will be from England.

    2. Yes the foreign model will work without any power adapter, i know cause my xbox 360 is also bought from England!

    3. Pirated games are tk 180 and you'd get em' in Basundhara city or basically anywhere.

    4. 4gb should be enough if you only plan on game saves.

    5. Yup you can use external hard drive or pen drive for storing purposes on your xbox 360.

    6. Well UPS depends on you.

    7. Hdmi cable you can get anywhere, price starts from tk 500.

    about flashing check the other threads.[COLOR="Silver"]

    thanks for the answers, i have checked the other threads. but i have a few more questions:

    the other thread says that the slim cant be modded with lt+. does that mean i wont be able to play pirated discs of brotherhood, hot pursuit and fable III if i get the slim model?

    how many games can i install on the 4gb slim? if that is not enough space can i use my 500gb portable hard drive to install and play games?

    i heard someone jailbroke the ps3 recently. are pirated ps3 games available in bd yet?

    can i flash the console and get accessories from electronics museum or plug&play from rifles square? how long is it going to take to flash?

    the slim cannot be lt+ed yet..but it should be available in a few days
    and like a said if you just wanna store games 4gb is more than enough and yah you can use your external hard drive to save game,install game, store movies etc..
    flashing takes 30min on average and you can get your console flash and get accessories from electronics museum...don't know much about ps 3, but i guess you can hack your ps3 by yourself...

    If you have a portable hdd it will be of great use for playing pirated games in ps3.jailbreaking is free and easy(just follow any tutorial for installing kmeaw cfw).you can then directly play from your portale hdd or internal hdd.you also need a original disk.hopefully you will get that free with ps3 if you buy from abroad.but you must make sure your ps3 is less than firmware 3.56.you can get games from ps3 owners in bg if you ask them or get each copy game from clickbd at 200tk per game.(In ps3 pirated games play from portable or internal hdd there are no pirated disks available).its your desicion whether you get a ps3 or xbox360.ps3 is famed for its exclusive games but xbox is worth buying if you buy kinect along with it.

    i might get kinect, but for now i guess i will get a 360. playing pirated games on the ps3 seems to be a hassle. i might consider buying it if pirated discs become available and if my final exam results are good enough

    1.yes there are some problem with PAL and NTSC, but not much 90% game in BD are region free , your one is gonna be PAL since your one will be from England.

    2. Yes the foreign model will work without any power adapter, i know cause my xbox 360 is also bought from England!

    3. Pirated games are tk 180 and you'd get em' in Basundhara city or basically anywhere.

    4. 4gb should be enough if you only plan on game saves.

    5. Yup you can use external hard drive or pen drive for storing purposes on your xbox 360.

    6. Well UPS depends on you.

    7. Hdmi cable you can get anywhere, price starts from tk 500.
