U have forgotten that the price is with an innaugural dscount of 10% + FIFA 2006 Game Free + Adidas Goodies worth 3,000 free. Now decide also pls do not forget that there is 37.63% duty on the console which our Govt levies and that is also being absorbed to a large extent given the econmics detailed above.

Yep, even with the Game and the freebies, I think it does not make sense buying a core system for almost the price of a premium system. Yes, I understand there are duties, but the prices of computers have been steadily decreasing, so I am sure MS can take a cut in the hardware price. Anyway in the gaming console business, it is not the hardware where you make the money. It is from the games...

can an xbox bought from the US work in india, with the volatage /current differences?

At last Microsoft has decided to bring Xbox 360 to India before Diwali timeframe. The first device to be available in India is special edition kit for FIFA world cup. This will have the Core, the FIFA game and some freebies based on the FIFA world cup and a special edition faceplate.

All my enthusiasm went for a six once I took a look at the cost. Almost Rs.20,000 (USD 450) for a core system. The Premium version retails for around USD 400, in the US and we get a core version for almost USD 150 more than the US retail price (around USD 299 or less)?? Yes, this is supposed to be a special edition, but still a USD 200 premium??

Also there is no information on what all games will hit the market and what are the plans/price to bring the premium version over.

I thought the whole idea of releasing a low cost Windows Starter version at less than Rs.1000 was because of the spending capacity in India and here I find the Xbox being sold for almost double its US retail price?? At this price, I don’t see any advantage buying a Xbox in India. It is a lot cheaper to buy one in the US and bring it over (even with the power/NTSC/DVD region problems).
