    Question Need help, advice on buying xbox 360

    greetings fellow bangla gamers.
    im planning on bringing over an xbox 360 from malaysia soon as it is pretty cheap there.
    they're said to be modded and all BUT the thing i'm worried about is, that those consoles are NTSC/U or NTSC/J region consoles. so my question is whether that would be a problem? coz i guess mostly PAL games are available here, or so it says on the box of the games. so what do i do??? please write back, help me out! thanks.

    Thats not true at all. Modded 360's are still region locked. Your 360 plays the games because the game is PAL-Region Free. And most of the games here are either NTSC locked or NTSC/PAL-Region Free.

    hmm didn't know that, i thought modded played all since mine does
    so in other words its not a good idea to buy a pal 360 in bd since some are ntsc locked

    Yes in fact its a bad idea. I've seen some people with PAL 360's, and they barely got any games to play. I even guided one of them to use torrents to download region free and PAL games.

    They sell modded consoles in Dubai as well. Buy a game and give it a shot, if it doesn't work, then get it modded. Max Tk5000..

    Well since its 14", the 360 won't be put to much work as its outputting at SD resolutions. Ask them to send you details for the PSU. If its at least of lower than 175W, then you can jump with joy.
