We just got a cool new Xbox 360 Slim Holiday Bundle last year (thanks to the Black Friday madness) and got a couple of Kinect titles as well. It’s really a great console and the Kinect sensor adds a whole new gameplay interaction and was actually pretty good at tracking. We had hours and hours of fun after unboxing it :)
One quirk that I had ever since was that the Xbox 360 comes with a 110v AC Adapter instead of 220v and would require the use of a step-up transformer. I remember the time when I accidentally burned out our PlayStation 1 by accidentally plugging it into the wrong socket. With smoke coming out from the drive bay and a slow fading beep sound. That was sad.
If you can, get a 220 volt power adapter
I’d suggest that getting a 220v version of the adapter being sold over at Lazada Philippines for only 1,800 pesos. It may a bit expensive but certainly safer to have. Lazada also offers free shipping for this item (anything over 1,000) and has a 7-day return policy. It’s a good deal already considering you’ll save money on gas/transpiration and just have it shipped directly to your house with the warranty benefits of a physical store.
