When you say "you can choose the same value cash still.", do you mean we can take a cash amount of the same value as a xbox 360?

You could order me one locally: http://www.gpstore.co.nz/Games/1477255.html
Or you could send me the cash to do it myself (what bank details do you need?)

Edit: I'm saying this because of the region protection, some xbox360 games are region protected. I'd rather have a console I can buy the games for locally. :)

I can convert 110V to 220V, My DS, PS2, PSP and GBA are like this,
I'll take the XboX as it is :)

Edit: i just thought about it, can the Japanese console show english text?

I guess they will rather give you the price of the japanese XBOX they would have bought (400$ if I remember correctly).

A request : Please mark the package as a "Gift" so we will not have to pay taxes :D

Taxes here stands for 130% (Here == Israel)

just remember that the Xbox 360 is _not_ region-free, so you may have trouble with non-japanese games...

less then 20% isn't massive IMO...

but hey, I'm not saying it's a bad decision to get the japanese Xbox 360, there will surely be a hack that will overcome this problem. otherwise, you should hope that more games come withou region lock

Sadly this doesn't look like it's happening any time soon, the current dvd drive exploit won't allow playing games from other regions.
